“Use Social Media Wisely”, Cautions Islamic Scholar

Islamic Scholar cautions persons on wiser use of social media

A renowned Bauchi-based Islamic scholar, Sheik Ahmad Tijjani Guruntum, has cautioned youths and women against the misuse of the social media platforms, noting that such misuse often leads to misinformation and breach of peace.


Sheikh Guruntum gave the warning during a weekly lecture in Bauchi, tagged “Misuse of the social media by youths and women”, noting that the manner that social media is being deployed in posting all manners of contents to the public without caution was unfortunate and saddening.
He lamented that Muslim youths and women spend almost 24 hours of their time on internet, using their phones and computers to access Facebook, Tik Tok, WhatsApp, among other platforms, without necessarily considering their Islamic books.

He said that the various platforms on social media were meant basically to accelerate development in the society as the world had become to a global village. 
Guruntum emphasized that Islam upheld morality and abhorred indiscipline and immorality.
According to him, instead of using social media to post immoral things, which they would be questioned about on the Day of Resurrection, Muslim youths and women should rather use the platforms to propagate Islamic knowledge.
He asserted that abuses and unguarded comments by social media users could bring about disunity and misunderstanding among people in the society.
The cleric, therefore, admonished those in the habit of propagating disunity and misunderstanding through social media to desist from such behaviour for their own good and the good of humanity.
