Disturbing Blogs by Muslims

Disturbing Blogs by MuslimsQ: Asalamualaykum

I was advised to speak to Ulama regarding certain disturbing blogs authored by Muslims that bring out the tales and experiences of boys and girls seeking marriage partners, their experiences and other gossip. The blogs are written in a very comical and unpleasant manner, making a mockery of people and serve as cheap gossip and entertainment for the reader with very minimal or no benefit at all.

Unfortunately many many Muslim girls are being entertained by such trash.

The blogs also contain  explicit and immoral scenes! I started an awareness regarding it but on a small scale, however obviously I cannot contact the author because he is male. I feel something should be done immediately because many learned girls are also being entertained by this blog.

Jazakallah khair

Also I would like to know what is the fatwa of reading such literature.

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

We thank you for your query and for your concern in the matter. May Allah Ta’ala reward you.

We are perturbed by the contents and nature of the information on this and other such portals. This is clearly un-Islamic and falls within the category of futility and non beneficial information. The Hadith has taught us to seek refuge from such futility that has no benefit and contaminates one’s spirituality and thinking.

Unfortunately, the internet is a largely uncensored space and the responsibility lies with the user to distinguish what is suitable and what is not. What can be done though is for concerned individuals to combat these scourges  through the very avenue that they are being promoted. Using social media, blogs and email, awareness can be raised on the issues of concern and those wanting to follow the guidance will be informed correctly and empowered. Truth will prevail over falsehood and if we make a sincere effort, though outwardly small, Allah Ta’ala will bring about the desired results, Insha Allah.

Darul Ihsan does addreses social ills through its various publications and will endeavour to address this matter shortly, Insha Allah.

Was Salaam
