Everything has moved more online, be very responsible. I am not saying it is haram to use technology. But I am saying the way we use it will determine whether it is halal or haram. Please use it responsibly.
I've had cases of people who've communicated with me regarding some things that they have done, very embarrassingly, that have actually been spread across the globe. And sometimes I've even heard from the family members of those who've passed on of some of the content that the deceased had put up online. That was very embarrassing, and there was absolutely no way of eradicating all of it, because it has it had spread to many different platforms. So ask yourself when I do something and post it online, if I were to die right now, would I be proud of what I've posted online? Would I like Allah? Would I like the angels? Would I like the rest of the people to know me for what I've
posted online? And then you post based on the answer to that question, and inshallah, if you have belief, and if you are conscious of Allah, and if you are concerned about the day of reckoning, and if you're concerned about the day that you're going to be meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala then you would definitely only post that which would really be in your favor, and never ever held against you. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive our shortcomings. May Allah bless us and our offspring. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us people say, I've become very bored. What should I do? My brothers and sisters to tackle boredom, do something constructive, not destructive. Remember those words to
tackle boredom. Do something constructive, not destructive.
