Girls posting pictures on social media

Recommended Posts

What really annoys me is that these women who put hijab and posts pictures on facebook and their insta account not to mention the rest of the platforms. Both Sayed sistani and khamenei doesnt allow it. And when i ask them if they're committed they'd be like yes of course... if you mention them the picture issue they start giving all the excuses possible which is even more disappointing. What kills me more is to see them doing the duckface! Do you think imam al mahdi is proud of these women? Shame.

Bismehe Ta3ala,

Assalam Alikum Sister Zaman,

The creators of Fassidbook and InstaHaram (IH) knew what they were doing when they put this medium out in public.  It has created a generation of narcissism and a platform to waste hours of time looking and observing other people.  Where the masses will then ignore the real issues that need time and effort.  Like raising a family, speak against injustices around the world, helping the poor and destitute.

I have told friends and family absolutely no pictures of me and my family are allowed on your accounts.  I also do not have either accounts, Alhamd'Allah.

People have self satisfaction when they see a "like" or when people comment like "you're cute" "gorgeous" "beautiful" some need the attention because they don't have love and affection at home or people who should show love and care for them but don't.  So they end up putting themselves in public on FB and IH to gain some sort of gratification.  

M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

Excellent points.

However, it works both ways. Brother (or sister?) @yasahebalzaman.313, it won't help you to get sucked into that. If you can find an effective means to discourage them from doing that, then use that means. Telling them it's wrong won't be fruitful. Nowadays even something so simple requires a smart strategy.

Yes as for men, they are allowed to post picture if it is for work, not for fun and taking selfies or whatever. All these people tend to seek attention because as sister laayla said they lack affection and self confidence. However it is obvious that any act of haram that you do comes against you and creates a flaw in your personality. Like these people who lack self esteem due to their silly behavior, they are weak. Try to explain them that they will tell you you're crazy, judgmental or their IQ won't just comprehend your statement. But as i noticed also that they don't know that their marjaa forbids it, like sayed khamenei says it is allowed only amongst family and if the act isn't at risk of becoming haram, so they take this conclusion and act freely accordingly.

It's not just the girls. Guys are equally guilty, if not more. 

And disallowing something doesn't make much of a difference unless it is backed with convincing arguments. Tarbeyat of a generation is a gradual process and requires a lot of effort. In order to produce convincing arguments, followers of esteemed Scholars need to cut down on holier than thou attitude and put themselves in the shoes of the guilty generation.

It is not enough that our scholars forbid something? Isn't this why we follow leaders? we trust their judgments and their decisions in leading the ummah. That is the principle of one following a marjaa and referring to him beside other aspects. It's not about committing an act of haram it's about seeking attention also, hence this act makes our fellow shias weak and vulnerable. These actions are not for us, they are for the westerners and the non muslims. We are stronger than this.

@The Batman I do what i can of course. When i see something wrong and i see it necessary to act or say something to benefit to other party i don't hesitate. And i'm a sister :)

Hahaha omg that duckface!!! I hate it too. So disgusting!! What are they thinking!?? Sadly, they don't even think. They see everybody doing it and they do it too automatically.

These types of things are perfect tricks of shaytan for that make humans experience a wide variety of bad feelings. From envy to doubts about hijab and wanting attention. Hopefully this could stop!

How could I guide a sister under that situation?

I will not say details, but it kills me to see a sister wearing hijab in real life, to post photos of herself on the internet, because "she needs to talk with people because she's stressed, or has fights with her family, so she needs to talk to other people different from her family sometimes"

Salam.

you need to prove her that shes sick or Ignorant, if she knows this isnt what islam recommend for a female, then she must know shes sick. lack of love? Kindnesses? eager to have attractions? attentions?

anyway, a pious man doesnt like such woman. she will marry to a same person as she's, or worse.

Wassalam.

Assalamu alaykum dear sister,

I share your concerns, and what is more heartening is that sisters themselves are speaking out against these absurdities. May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى reward you for your efforts, and increase you in your taqwa.

Wearing a hijab, and then uploading photos on social media defeats the very purpose of hijab.

The onus of stopping this corruption rests on the shoulders of you and your likes, dear sister. We young men stand to face the charge of 'mansplaining' if we do the same.

I guess this trend is the new normal now.

Salam,

I agree with you that the amount of muslim women posting pictures of themselves on social media has increased a lot but I dont that in itself is the problem. The problem is the type of photos they're posting and the type of people who have access to viewing their photos right?

So many girls just post pictures of themselves doing poses for no reason and it attracts unnecessary attention and serves no purpose. The muslim women and girls these days really need to understand the importance of not putting up too much online and especially of themselves. Of not showing the public what your up to or showing everyone your beauty.

What you can do is maybe just very kindly advice the girls that you're maybe close to?

Subhan-Allah,

I've been struggling with this situation recently. Since I've become a revert, I've started understanding things I didn't understand before,  I've begun on telling my youngest sister to stop with the duck face and my mother stops me at my place and says not to bully her because it's a phase my other sister went through. I insist that she doesn't have to go through the same thing, but I cannot argue with my mother no matter how much I disagree. 

I can't call my sister sick, that'll cause more problems. My mother gets very sensitive towards my sisters, which is understandable. I could explain in private if someone with the proper knowledge could guide me to help them.

Assalam.

if they are Christian, Hazrat Maryam s.a is the key( the Holy mother of our holy prophet Isa-Jesus a.s). if they arent Religious or they dont practice it, reminds them what they need to hear, otherwise, let them be, dont force it.

Wish you all the Best, Enshallah.

Wassalam.

Wa-salam,

We're all Muslims, I was the only one to astray because I decided to stay in the U.K. as a teenager when they all left to go live in Lebanon. My sisters and mother have been through a lot.

Its so sad to see what modern popular culture is doing to our sisters and women in general.

Two students one male and one female post their graduation pictures on social media.

On the guys picture everybody is commenting: You will conquer the world now! Congratulations, PHD next for you! Very proud of you, knew you would do great! Etc.

On the girls picture everybody is commenting: Wow you look so beautiful! OMG, that dress looks sooo good on you. That hairstyle suits you so well. My beauty princess XOXOXOXO. Etc.

Modern popular culture just teaches women to be judged by their looks and that self esteem is only acquired thru the validation of others. It is systematically teaching the women that they are not good looking and that if they want to look good they have to look like these movie stars that we have insistently told everyone that they are the ideal human beings, all you need to do is to dress less, buy the same expensive clothing they have, buy a bunch of make up and then post your pictures to the world and watch how they will validate you, then you can finally feel good about yourself.

If I one day have a daughter, i will IA make sure she gets the validation she needs, to be called a princess and beautiful by me, her father, and teach her that she is more than just her looks and that people will only respect her if she respects herself first. So that she does not let TV tell her what to feel about herself and then crave the validation of the public in order to feel good.

The modern popular culture is a tool of ibliss(la) and the cure is the Ahlul Bayt(as) and their sunnah, whether it is regarding how to raise a daughter, or being a daughter or being a women in general.
