The Youtuber, Social Media Celebrity Syndrome!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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

You are so right! I also don't understand how make up has become so popular among our women. It seems like the most normal thing for teenagers to do and parents not speaking out against it.

How can you be a Hijabi, modest & wearing make up every day? The main purpose of make up is to look good in front of others and to be honest I don't see the purpose in doing so when you go to school, work, etc.

Also, there are haram ingredients in make up so we must be careful about that since it has an effect on the soul.

What I also don't understand is when most of the women get married, they wear so much make up that they look totally different than they are in reality. I am not even kidding about this, some women on their wedding day put make up for hours and hours.

 

However, I don't have a problem with women wearing (halal) make up occassionaly on Khushali's or when going out with family.

 

Edit: i found this topic: 

 

On the last page (page 3) there are 2 members that explain it quite well :)

how about people start seeing within themselves and their mistakes than focusing on other people and the things they do wrong.

Because it's our duty to guide our ummah to the right path. We need to prepare for the Imam of our time

The fact is we are commanded to enjoin good and forbid evil.

It's in the Holy Qur'an.

our jihad is to look at ourself and work to become pious rather than judging other people, that's one of our main goal in this worldly life to reach Jannah.

We are to look after ourselves, our families, and our Muslim brothers and sisters.

Not just our selves.

This is what Amr bil Ma'ruf and Nahi an al-Munkar is about.

It's our duty to guide them. We did the right thing, it's now up to the brothers and sisters what they want to do with this information. As @The Batman said, this is what Amr bil Ma'ruf and Nahi an al-Munkar is about, which is WAJIB

The OP is concerned about these people. By saying these things the OP is not oppressing them or "judging" them but rather: guiding them and helping them. A lot of young people don't know that this stuff is wrong.
