Problems with Facebook

My Brothers, in today’s modern era, we are aware of the benefits of mobile phones and also the internet. However the damage that can be caused by these technologies are far more than its benefits. As is mentioned in the Holy Quran, Almighty Allah says “Ithmuhuma Akbaru min nuf’ehema ”
meaning “there is more harm than benefits”

Our youngsters of today are so sunk into the internet and mobile phones that they are going further and further fromthe commands of Allah.

Today we have time for chatting, we have time for gaming, but as for time to recite the book of Allah, we have no such time, no time for praying salah either.

Rather our youngsters are becoming addicted to sites such as Facebook, which is owned by Mark Zuckerburg. This is the same company which permitted a competition to create cartoons of our beloved Prophet (s.a.w) which are still situated on the site.

Do we not have that much love for our beloved Prophet (s.a.w) that we stop the use of such sites? Our beloved Prophet (s.a.w) has stated “None of you can have iman until I am more beloved to you than your children, parents and assets”.

Brothers and Sisters, MuftiMuhammedTaqi Uthmani (M.A) further comments that when a user opens his Facebook account, the company receives 2.50 Dollars.We should ask ourselves if it is necessary for us to use Facebook, when by using facebook we are benefiting the group that is trying to exterminate Islam and is making fun of our beloved Prophet (s.a.w).

Aside from this, people are keeping their pictures on facebook, where non-mahrams are viewing these images and then write comments on them, due to which there is a grave danger of falling into many sins. These things are completely contrary to shariah.

The use of such sites leads towaste of time, money and causes harm and hurt to one’s feelings. These are just a fewof the dangers. Due to these reasons, I make a humble request that we should all close and delete our Facebook accounts today! (i.e boycott Facebook)

The Internet and Mobile phones are gifts from Allah; it is compulsory upon us to use these gifts appropriately.

We should consider propagating this message to our fellow Muslims, our responsibility and honour, and an expression of our true love of our beloved Prophet (s.a.w).
