All Praise be to Allah who has blessed us with the oppurtunity of being from amongst the greatest of nations, with the greatest of Prophets, Muhammed bin Abdillah عليه افضل الصلاة والسلام …
There is a problem that has crept into society. We are oblivious in noticing what harm it is actually causing in our lives. This very problem is the problem of broadcasting everything on social media. What good is there in it?
Okay, post a picture of this function you went to last week. Then post a picture today of your day out, and the Starbucks you bought. Not so bad.
Then you post a family picture. A picture of you and your spouse, smiling with a glint of happiness in your eyes.
There are many people who are jealous. They wish to have your life.
Then you were blessed with a beautiful baby boy. The world already knows by your posts.
It gets sickening.
Like everyone is trying to be better than the next person. What is this? Pride? Jealousy?
I’m not saying don’t post anything. But don’t be extreme.
Alhamdulillah, I was blessed with visiting the Haramain Shareefain recently. You must have heard about the blast that occured just outside Masjidun Nabawi صلي الله عليه و سلم. I had just broken my fast.. and when we heard the sound, most of the women ran towards the doors and the first thing they did was take out their phones. For what exactly? To capture something, to have a video of the ‘blast’. Its ridiculous.
Photography is so saddening.
You are in the city of Rasul salAllahu alayhi wa salam and you are taking selfies? You are disobeying your Messenger salAllahu alayhi wa salam, and that too in his blessed city?! How do you actually muster the courage that infront of the Raudha Mubarak, people stand and take selfies… how my Nabi (salAllahu alayhi wa salam)’s heart must be?
Besides this… its just ..
Like you have a boyfriend, its a haraam relationship, yet you take pictures with or of him and post on social media.
Now I understand why my Nabi salAllahu alayhi wa salam would cry for us… look at how lost we have become..
May Allah guide us on the straight path and grant us steadfastness. آمين.
P.S: I’m sorry for the lack of posts from my side. I’ve been having a bit of writers block. Infact I wrote this post more than a week ago, yet it never was perfect. So I just added more to it..

Concern of the Parents for the Deen of the Children
Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned:
The father of the house needs to see that the aa’maal of the house are taking place diligently and consistently. If he is away from home or on a journey, then he should make the necessary arrangements and ensure that his children are punctual on their Deeni programme. If he is away, then he can phone up and find out. He needs to take it very seriously and personal. Then only will he see the true deeni colours coming into the children.
But if he takes it casually and lightly and at the end they fail to come onto Deen, then he should not be shocked and surprised over the outcome. Just as in education and school related matters parents attach so much of importance, ensuring that the children go for tuition and complete their assignments and projects on its due time and are concerned that they do not fail and suffer worldly disgrace, in the same token, in regard to their Deen if parents want them to become successful and not to fail, then they should be to a greater extent concerned that their children receive the proper upbringing and Deeni attention.
