Yes facebook has become an addiction to many. But there is nothing wrong with having facebook. It just comes down to your intention. If you are aware of your circumstances and know when you shouldnt cross that halal boundary, then you should be fine. Facebook is a wonderful website that allows you to socialise with family and friends and spread the knowledge on your religion as well, the bad stuff just has to be ignored and you got to be careful.

Yes for those people who are addicted and start to figure out that facebook has been ruining their daily lives and making them block out the real world, then something should be done ie. deactivate the facebook or set themselves a time limit on when to go on. Its just a matter of taking responsibility for your actions and knowing how the net world can affect the real world.

i think someone should burn facebook....

if people wanted to use it for family purposes, myspace and msn offer the same services but with less risk than facebook

so far, its only bought corruption into the home;

a few months back this kid committed suicide live on facebook, another time this girl met up with her 'facebook friends' and they ended up killing her,...the list goes on

and parents should prevent their children accessing it, because you dont know what homocidal maniac could be lurking there.

thats my opinion, unless ur a responsible adult using it for appropiate purposes, then facebook shouldnt be accessed by younger people prone to influence, corruption and brain washing

Oh my gosh some people are such babies.

Dont blame facebook for discord in marriages, suicides, stupid decisions, promiscuity etc. People are to blame for those things, If it wasnt facebook it'd be some other outlet they'd use. Anyone with a triple digit IQ knows better.

Bhooka can you please share the reference, context and entire text of that hadith? Never heard it before, sounds dodge.

I'd mentioned the reference, Man la Yahadhuruhul faqih, perhaps you missed it. You can read more about this book here:

http://www.al-islam.org/al-serat/default.asp?url=saduq-howard.htm

As for the original entire text of the hadith, here it is:

Everybody on here should remember: facebook is being used to monitor folks. It's akin to handing out people microscopes into your lives.

Ironically, I think the people who add the most friends and make their profiles most visible are the least vulnerable. It's the people who limit their friends and privatize their profiles who really get bitten. If your facebook friends are all actual friends, then the people that's monitoring you know who your friends are.

And of course recently it has been used by imperialists and their agents (official and unofficial) to undermine our Islamic system (in Iran).

The detriments certainly outweigh the benefits. All yall need to delete your facebook accounts.

^ Very apt term there: fasadbook.

A profile with scantily clothed woman will have hundreds of friends .men have befriended women & women men and chat endlessly leaving less or no time 4 the family leading to marital discords ...

Oh, even a "Hijabi" posting close-ups of her face, with the lighting and angle adjusted, make-up et al will have innumerable "friends". There can be no other reason to a female doing so every now and then save a desire to attract. Or even a male posting pictures bursting with testosterone. Hayaa' is even more a lost virtue across the virtual world.

if people wanted to use it for family purposes, myspace and msn offer the same services but with less risk than facebook

so far, its only bought corruption into the home;

A lot of people (Muslims) hardly have a life outside of the virtual world. Sites like FaceBook, ShiaChat are where they lurk and gain the shuhrah that they crave. Worshipped by masses frequenting the virtual world, they have little contact if any with Muslims in their real lives. They would probably have a hard time counting the Muslims they are in regular contact with in their real lives on their fingers. They have little knowledge of the umoor of the muslimeen and they are rarely involved with them in their daily lives. This void within them is what they seek to fulfil through such sites. And yes, a lot of them, with this addiction, have brought corruption into their homes. In fact, they are probably not even aware of what is happening inside their homes. They are charitable with concern for all and sundry in the virtual world. They have all the time for them and are ready with advices of help. They have NONE for their own.

Such people are only deserving of pity.

It just comes down to your intention. If you are aware of your circumstances and know when you shouldnt cross that halal boundary, then you should be fine.

It is not so black and white as it seems. What you (and others who think similarly) speak of is only partially true. Environment does play role in shaping a person and it is only the best (not everyone is a Prophet MuHammad, eh) who are able to resist the Satanic temptations constantly being whispered unto them that shall be able to salvage themselves from this rot that the world is sinking into further and further.

What was that saying, again? 'Wisdom comes with age but sometimes age comes alone'. Just substitute that sometimes for 'a lot of the time'. Reality check.

Can we have the 'like" button on each post please :( It is so much more conveniant.

:D

At the end, I do have a FaceBook account and I know my limits (at least I think I do).

Facebook is merely a tool, it is up to people to use it appropriately, just as a knife can be a murder weapon or used to butter your bread. The tool cannot be blamed for the actions of the person, that is just foolish and ignorant.

i really like your analogy, very nice. :)

and so true.

Maybe with respect to corruption, this is correct. But what about it being used to monitor people? This is not affected by people using it appropriately or inappropriately.

/\ Also the analogy is not quite accurate. Having a knife doesn't poke, add, or invite you, to anything.

The sad thing about Facebook is that these days it is extremely difficult to find a person without a Facebook account.

i luv facebook. i would de if one day i wasnt able to check it.

This is where it becomes a problem.....You really need to work on that.

Personally, Im more of an MSN kinda guy. It allows me to keep in contact with those I want to be in contact with, does not broadcast every movement I do, and is nice, discreet, simple and effective for its goal. If your goal is to purely keep in touch with friends that you dont see much in real life or to communicate with them wirelessly in real time (without a phone of course) then it does the best job.

Also it does not eat up your time. It does not distract you. It can be used to eat up time and distract you, but you have to go looking for that (those menial conversations). In most cases, when your board, you can on and chat with friends to relieve your boradness or if you just wanna go on to tell someone a couple of things, then you can get on, do that then get off without being distracted. It is a controlled system, and you decide how much to control it depending on your situation. Also, every word you type isent exposed to everyone and there mothers.

And trust me, there are some C.R.E.E.P.S out there and some VERY M.E.A.N people that you may never suspect as being such. They may be "watching" you, and talking about you and God knows what to you and you would never have a clue. You'll probably even smile/greet at them the next time you see them. All this because they have more access to your everyday actions/movements/conversations then they should

Facebook will eventually die out anyways, its the trend cycle. Back in the day I use to hear myspace was just as popular as Facebook is now.

You can already see twitter catching up to it fast already, even though they have slightly different indeed functions, there still pretty much the same thing.

There are so many more productive things you can do on the web anyways, instead of spending 24-7 on facebook and commenting on other peoples lives and alot of the time its not even friends, its just people that you hardly ever talk to in real life.

Being (hallal) social is encouraged, but wasting every second of your free time on FB is not.

There are is a time and a place and a Maximum and a Minimum for everything, FB is no exception.

If you find yourself at the point where you find yourself severely stressed if you cannot get online to check your FB for a couple of days, or if you spend hours on FB doing pretty much nothing productive/same thing over and over again/ just aimlessly browsing other peoples profiles (and alot of the time its not to long ago that you aimlessly checked up on those profiles) then you really have to take a step back.

If you must use facebook, don't spend hours on the site just browsing and browsing. Being social is encouraged, but not to the degree where that's all you care about or that's all you do or that's what you spend ridiculous amounts of time on when you get internet access.

Anything that is "out of the ordinary" or one which goes "bigger than expected" is always met with criticism and the one's who do not wish well tend to demonize it in their own way. When i first opened my account on facebook (i have also tried other Social Network Services like myspace etc) i found it extremely helpful to connect with friends i haven't met in years (i changed 3 schools in different countries, and since it has been a while since we passed out there was no way of reconnecting with them).

The other way in which i benefited with facebook, was that it helped me to increase in contacts and connect with friends from a "business" viewpoint.

So in my opinion, this is just another Social Network which you could effectively use for your well being. Of course our resistance is when Social Networks tend to become "un social" and addiction of anything is deemed unreasonable.

I guess in today's time one must look for the positivity in what such applications should offer and not really give too much weight to the negative aspect of it.

Everything after the first line was not directed on you. When you said "I would die if one day I wasn't able to check my facebook" is what I responded to with "This is where it becomes a problem.....You really need to work on that." because you shouldn't be that addicted to FB in the first place.

However, at least your not on it 24-7 or are not using it inappropriately (inshallah) and are keeping in contact with good (inshallah) friends via it as a medium(Despite the fact that there are better mediums as a mentioned in my original post) . However, despite all that, you still shouldn't be that affected to that point if you weren't able to get a chance to log on to facebook for much longer then a day.

After the first line was pretty much directed towards the thread and giving my two cents/advice about FB and such.

well, yeahh facebook can be used for good, but tbh 80% of shia youths are corrupted by it. i myself used to have one, but have since deleted it, as it caused nothing but haram, leading to pain, and if i have one wish, its honestly that i had never had facebook.

i personally have nothing wrong with facebook - just because those out there use it for reasons that others disagree with, it isnt our business. i use it to stay intouch with family overseas and share family photos to update them.

Technology is expanding, if you dont agree with it, i think technophobes need to go live in a cave :squeez:
