  1. Salam Alaykom, I've been a Twitter user myself for a very long time and honestly i don't think that i have ever come across a more toxic platform. There is so much division amongst members of society and religious sects on it. There are countless arguments on a daily basis amongst sects and other groups. At first i thought it due to Twitter's young users however this isn't the case, you get many full grown adults arguing on a daily basis too. It's as if they feed off it. What's your take on this? Do you share the same opinion?

  3. Social media, a world of responsibility with enormous numbers of irresponsibles... Let's not just become a forwarding machine ... When we just forward: At least what we can do is to check the source of a matter popped up on our screens. There are number of appealing messages floating everywhere on social media but we do no good by just forwarding these, we fulfill the sole purpose of its sender by passing it on. Knowledge is always a result of the efforts of only the knowledgeable people, not just everyone. Therefore least we can do is to check out traceable source if mentioned in any message. Expensive researches, crafted work and hard yearned produced materials with efforts naturally have its owner/creator's name unlike otherwise. We will be held accountable: We should strive to build a culture of admiration of those who worked hard not those doing plagiarism, a clean atmosphere of accountability not just promoting brain malware and publishing tormented facts, building a sense of responsibility but not a hidden world of tarnishing characters and images of persons or entities. Another area of exercizing extreme care rests with the sender of any message. If he/she has understood it well and capable enough to respond to further questions of audience or at least able to refer the audience easily to the source. Extreme care is also needed to verify if the article, media clip or content would not be harmful to some or any recipient of the message. If there is a chance of misinterpretation that exists due to the level of audience or possibility of message carrying multiple meanings that cannot be achieved without active dialogues, then better hold it and don’t send it to the texting world. Refrain from sending it by exercising your self control. Else we might equally be responsible for any deviation of one's faith for a period of time or forever, which is far worst than taking one's physical life.!!! Acceptance of specialist only: Another area of extra care is a to let message be decoded, understood and sent only by the experts of that field e.g. debates of religion by scholars or least the students of that decipline, medical, engineering, technology or finanicial related matters by their respective specialists. Imagine if financial derivative market impacts during meltdown are explained by a medical doctor; ib contrary you can imagine what happens to poor specialist of medical sciences when someone says cancer or diabetes is a myth or can be cured merely by taking hot showers etc. Above mentioned careless attitude of us being master and responsible for all and everything has driven us to a verge where finding true specialist, truth itself and the respect of righteous people has been severely damaged by our both hands so that so now you can either find marajaeen (where everyone thinks as a mufti) in every corner of a street or the vision has got so blurred that many of us do not know who a Marje Alam is, hence the lack of respect to this highly respected position which is like aforementioned specialists is not a profession, instead a highly divine decreed station by deputy of Almighty. The evidence: Examples are simple and can easily be seen in our or every society by just observing messages being relayed on social media on per nano second rate. Let us change our daily attitude towards knowledge and show a consistent sense of responsibility successfully handed over to next generation. Media industry, a poison for all: Above all we know credibility of main stream media and the strings of social media lie in the hands of those opinion makers who have invested billions into it, who constantly manipulate it else it would have not existed. The basis and worth of the other half of the floated content is to make things viral. This attitude is far much poisonous, widely accepted and infected all societies more than the impact of Covid19 itself. Time to change: The change lies into our hands and how responsible we are. Blaming those giving statements against respected marajaeen uzaam, those not doing taqleed while at the same time we fall prey to same basic principle in our daily lives by overriding specialist is so commonly found in our societies. Its like a huge noise created by clueless people while the specialist in the very room are not consulted or even respected at all. It would remain a grave concern, a matter of collective attitude and a big question mark we all are answerable and ultimately accountable to. The message: This message is not meant for general distribution just simply share it with those who you can engage with over the topic or refer to myself for a constructive discussion. Thanks for reading till the end.

  5. I am human, I make mistakes, therefore please correct my reasoning with references if possible, as I have separated from my partner over the matter of "displaying one's beauty", and perhaps I am wrong in my thought process. In the situation of a woman who does not observe hijab, but covers her body well; My reasoning: it is wrong to post your photos on social media where men are able to view your photo. Allah says in the quran do not display your beauty. You are a woman with beauty, you are posting a photo on social media, you are displaying yourself on social media, by posting on social media, it is an act of displaying yourself. I don't know how else I can say it. It is not the same as going to work. The thought here is "I am going to work". It is not the same as walking down the street to get somewhere and people see you, because the thought is "I am going to x place". When you post a photo, the thought is "I will post a picture of myself on instagram " in other words "I will display myself on instagram". You are therefore unnecessarily displaying your beauty to men. Even if the woman observes proper hijab, it is an act of "I will display myself on the internet by posting this photo"; it isn't a charity photo, a conference video, you giving a lecture, it's simply to share a "fun" or "precious" or "happy" moment with the people on social media (which includes male cousins, friends, strangers, etc.). Am I wrong in my thinking? Can someone explain it in a more articulate way rather than my caveman explanation?
  6. Why is that Shia Muslim content is lacking on Social media platform such as Facebook and Youtube. Hardly there is any Youtube channel or Facebook page with Shia content where followers are above 10k. On social media shia admins mostly share conflicting issues or lectures of non-shia scholars who seconds some of our ideology. But unfortunately there are hardly any shia pages or channel which talks on common ground to attract people towards shia islam. On the other hand youtube channel and facebook pages with non-shia content and speakers are growing day by day. Every other non-shia facebook page and channel has followers near 0.1 million. Even if you don't want to listen to non-shia speakers or lectures, somehow they come infront of you. Often their content is so misleading but people do get convince what ever they are saying is true just because those speakers don't talk on conflicting issues. Majortity of these speakers are wahabi or deoband. Don't you think Shia social media team need to be more smart and active on youtube and facebook? We need to produce shia speakers who can spread basic Islam without talking on conflicting issues and educate people what shia islam is.

  8. I can relate to it in the context of a couple of discussion boards (which I've outgrown) but I can't relate to it when it comes to popular social media platforms like those mentioned in tags. I don't have twitter or instagram or viber or whatever. I have a very old FB account which remains idle most of the year except lately when I've needed to use frequently to administer a travel group and do only and only that. But it seems social media is fast becoming a health hazard and a social crisis. I'm sure there are people among the readers who suffer from the addiction. How do you tackle it and what do you think about "social media addiction?"
  9. As someone who grew was a child in the days before social media was 'a thing'. I can't help but think social media is forcing us to live in a 'bubble' surrounded only by those who agree with us. When you go on facebook, youtube, even google news, these sites show you content by default that matches with your past viewing / searching habits. So, for example, if you are a democrat, you will see links from Washington Post / NY Times at the top of your search pages. If you are a Republican, you will see Fox News, NY Daily News, Washington Times, etc. You will start to think after a while that everyone agrees with you, because that is all you see. Then become shocked and annoyed when you hear another point of view. Is social media making us not only less intelligent, but less tolerant ? I was at our holiday lunch at work and I sit next to this middle aged white lady who I have worked with for almost a year. We got along very well / had a good working relationship. Then one of my other coworkers and I were having a political discussion and I said something about Trump and how he seems to do things mostly for his own benefit. It didn't seem like a strong or outrageous comment, but I could see this lady's face turning red and she has been avoiding me since that lunch about 1 week ago. So I started thinking, 'There are alot of people, even alot of Americans who don't particularly like Trump, she must of heard something like this before. But then I thought, Maybe she hasn't. Got me to thinking. BTW, I don't think any different / less of her because now I know she is a Trump supporter. But maybe not everyone thinks like I do ?
  10. What are the rules of social media? Are you allowed to have social media accounts? If not, is there a reason as to why you cannot?
  11. Please read all of it. This is a serious issue affecting our Muslim community! Assalaamu alaykom wa rahmatullahu wa barakatuh, firstly I ask all of you who read this to sincerely open your hearts to accepting what is truth and rejecting what is false. If you find any good in what is said then follow it, if not you are free to choose what to do with it. There is an issue in the Muslim youth that I am particularly disturbed by and have been looking for ways to create this awareness through people of influence or who have the platform to create awareness on a large scale. I don't know how impactful this message will be but I pray to Allah that he makes it reach all of you and that this helps to put an end to this issue. The problem effecting our youth is the whole Youtuber and Social Media Celebrity syndrome especially in our women with the whole Muslim "Make Up Artist" (MUA) and "Modest trend". This is a trend that is leading our youth in complete destruction. Day after day, one after another Muslim MUAs are popping up and Muslim youtubers/vloggers/pranksters in search of fame and money. I am so ashamed to admit that MAJORITY of our hijabis have fallen into this trap. I really don't wish for you anyone to see any of the images of our sisters in this way social media is filled with it and there is no escaping from them. We have sisters with a million over followers and some hundreds and thousands and are promoting make up and "modest" fashion which are not what would be considered acceptable or pleasing to Allah at all. And their fame is a complete joke vlogging about everything and nothing. Astaghfirllah -hijabis using vulgar language, talking about what they wear underneath, bedroom talk with their husbands, full on tabbaruj and just complete shamelessness. On the other hand you have the youtuber brothers doing pranks, vlogs, social experiments and what not. They start innocently and end up with kufr pranks such as pranking their friends that they are leaving Islam and actually say words of kufr and even asking Muslim sisters for sex as a prank and many other sick things. And they are so followed and come across as "Islamic" because they combine committing major sins openly and doing qur'an or prayer social experiments or "dawah" and occasionally post Islamic quotes or term their videos as "halal". And sometimes these brothers are defending hijab at the same time kissing hijabis and posting the photos. What a combo right? "I'm not perfect, I commit major sins and kufr and love Allah at the same time." This is the trend now wal iyyadhubillah! I want to reach out to the youth to let them know to make a concious decision to get ouf of it. Unfollow these people! I don't want to name names but you know who they are. Unfollow them FOR Allah'S SAKE. I am begging you brothers and sisters. Wallahi I have no self interest in this matter. Do it for the ummah, for Islam. Don't support the wrong things. And sisters, stop beautifying yourself, whether you do it for your own self or for men or whatever, it is still haram and hated by Allah. It is sinful for you to display yourself in public beautified whether you are wearing hijab or not. Please learn more seek knowledge and let Imaan enter your hearts. Seek Allah's pleasure alone don't fall for the trap of shaytaan. It's gotten so bad to the point that the pages with pornographic images of women are reposting hijabi photos praising their makeup and eyebrow game and beauty. And the husbands who allow their wives to display their beauty, Rasulullah ص called them dayooth. ‘’Three people will not enter paradise, and Allah will not look to them on the Day of Judgment: the one who is disobedient to his parents, the woman who imitates men and the ad-Dayooth.” Please brothers and sisters, reach out to them and speak more openly about this issue. Discourage the sisters from displaying their beauty. From wearing heels and the wrong hijab and fake lashes and doing their eyebrows and displaying themselves. Brands today have completely hijacked the term modesty and Hayaa, we need to redefine it to it's originally meaning which is what Allah has defined it as. So please brothers and sisters talk more about this and discourage them from it. Keep on sending the message out. Wassalamm aleikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh PS: Sorry for the long post
  12. Salam Everyone, What does one do when they feel totally trapped in Social media? Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp and what not When it starts taking toll on things that really matter. For example, it takes your time away from work, where your performance starts to get affected. and then, it starts affecting your sleep cycles. Health Starts to deteriorate. Where does it stop or what should we do to stop this viscous cycle? I think it has negatively affected my personal and professional development. Please help, anyone?
  13. (bismillah) Social media makes it all too easy to see other people's religious shortcomings. It's on public display and it's right in your face. For example when our Muslim sisters post glamour shots of themselves in bright glittery makeup, or post pictures of themselves making suggestive faces/ poses. Or when we see our Muslim brothers making flirtatious comments on posts and pictures, or having conversations on full display that seem a little too comfortable with girls. Or our Muslim siblings posting Music videos with horrible lyrics or promoting licentious TV shows... I'm not trying to be nitpicky with these types of things, but when I see stuff like this it makes me uncomfortable. And something that makes me even more uncomfortable is seeing numerous people 'like' questionable things like this and encourage them. “You look so beautiful mashaAllah!” and are mum about the obvious fact that a picture like that doesn't belong on facebook for all of her guy friends to ogle at. These kinds of things have a snowball effect. If a young girl sees that people give applause and comments to sexy pictures, she is going to want to post them too. Social media gives green lights. The main point is, nahi 'anil munkar is a tenet of Islam. If it wasn't, I wouldn't care what people put on facebook or social media. So I wonder, what is our duty in these matters? I feel like this is an especially important matter when these people are getting a showering of support and encouragement when they shouldn't be. Is it enough to just withhold 'likes' and support? That seems too passive aggressive, but that is my current method. If we say something, we will appear 'holier-than-thou' and extremely petty. Or am I simply making an issue out of nothing? Like, “dragonfly, get a life...” I just don't want to be a part of a bigger problem, or be silent when it was my duty not to be.
  14. Something similar was reported last year as well. The program is covert i.e. students are to hide the fact that they're being paid to write positively about the Israeli regime. Students offered grants if they tweet pro-Israeli propaganda In a campaign to improve its image abroad, the Israeli government plans to provide scholarships to hundreds of students at its seven universities in exchange for their making pro-Israel Facebook posts and tweets to foreign audiences. The students making the posts will not reveal online that they are funded by the Israeli government, according to correspondence about the plan revealed in the Haaretz newspaper. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office, which will oversee the programme, confirmed its launch and wrote that its aim was to “strengthen Israeli public diplomacy and make it fit the changes in the means of information consumption”. The government’s hand is to be invisible to the foreign audiences. Daniel Seaman, the official who has been planning the effort, wrote in a letter on 5 August to a body authorising government projects that “the idea requires not making the role of the state stand out and therefore it is necessary to adhere to great involvement of the students themselves, without political linkage or affiliation”. According to the plan, students are to be organised into units at each university, with a chief co-ordinator who receives a full scholarship, three desk co-ordinators for language, graphics and research who receive lesser scholarships and students termed “activists” who will receive a “minimal scholarship”. Mr Netanyahu’s aides said the main topics the units would address related to political and security issues, combating calls to boycott Israel and combating efforts to question Israel’s legitimacy. The officials said the students would stress Israeli democratic values, freedom of religion and pluralism. But Alon Liel, the doveish former director-general of the Israeli foreign ministry, criticised the plan as “quite disgusting”. “University students should be educated to think freely. When you buy the mind of a student, he becomes a puppet of the Israeli government grant,” he said. “You can give a grant to do social work or teach but not to do propaganda on controversial issues for the government.” http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/students-offered-grants-if-they-tweet-proisraeli-propaganda-8760142.html
