Assalamualaikum my brothers, my sisters, my beloved children, there are many social media apps where people enjoy themselves have a bit of fun Subhanallah make sure that is clean fun, because if not, it's going to come back to haunt us. That's the problem. People are mimicking and lip syncing the dirtiest of songs that have meaning that is totally absurd. Absolutely vulgar, pornographic in nature. And we're Muslim. Come on, come on, we can do better than that. So don't just follow a trend because it's a trend and get it done. No, there is no merit in that in the eyes of Allah. When you close your eyes and you're in your grave alone. What will come to your assistance, the remembrance
of Allah, the use of the tongue in the correct way, by repeating words of praise and goodness, that's what's going to come to your help, the prayer, that you fulfill the charities that you gave. But what would happen if we didn't even think of a day we're going to meet with Allah and return to Allah. We're not saying don't have fun, but make sure it's clean, fun, make sure it's something that would be acceptable. And it would be of a good moral standard. May Allah accept it from all of us make it easy for us things are becoming worse. And people are uttering words that are absolutely unacceptable in the eyes of Allah, I want to end by telling you, do you know that when the angels of
mercy and protection that are around you hear the vulgar words come from your mouth, they actually move away from you. So you're left with no protection from shade ban, or no protection from the devil? And you're left with with nothing no mercy SubhanAllah. Don't do that. You don't need to swear you don't need to be vulgar. Because if you do that, it's going to cause a problem for you. You become unpredicted. That's the minimum. That's what happens immediately. Later on, you got to meet with Allah. It has an impact, things are getting worse and worse, don't let it happen. So remember, when you're using any social media application for a bit of fun, perhaps you might want to
say a thing or two, make sure it's beneficial. And if it's not beneficial, it shouldn't be harmful. It could be as a harmless thing but not harmful. And as a Muslim, what is not harmful is that which is free of vulgarity abuse, hurt that which is free of hate that which is free of
cheap words. Like I said pornographic words. No, we don't need that. We don't need that. May Allah protect us all. And I sincerely advise you with this beautiful advice. In fact, it's for me to begin with, and my own folks and then everyone else as salaam alaikum warahmatullah
