SP Answers: Blogging and Propriety

From SunniPath

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question:

Can you comment on the latest internet trend relating to blogs and blogging? Are there dangers in crossing adab in blogging? What types of blogs and blog content is useful and what should be avoided (other than obviously haram topics)?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate.

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

Allah Most High tells us about His Beloved Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him)

If you follow him, you will be guided. [Quran, 24.54]

It is understood from the language of the verse, as the Quranic commentators say, that the sense of tahtadu (guided) here is guided completely.

Abu Uthman (Allah have mercy on him) said,

Whoever holds themselves to the sunna, shall speak with wisdom; and whoever holds to their whims shall speak with reprehensible innovations. [Isma`il Haqqi, Tafsir Ruh al-Bayan]

The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,

Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should say the good or remain silent. [Bukhari and Muslim]

This is the criterion for anyone who seeks to speak or act:

if it is good, go ahead; if it isn’t, don’t; if you are unsure, weigh it on the scales of the Sacred Law ask yourself: is what I’m saying or doing pleasing to Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him)?

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,

Faraz Rabbani
