Fiqh of Social Media

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

Omar Usman’s book the ‘Fiqh of Social Media: Timeless Islamic Principles for Navigating the Digital Age’ is indeed a timely and timeless gift to the Muslims worldwide. We all know about social media and how it has become a part of our daily life. It so happens that we often lose time and even get distracted due to the pomp and glare of the social media.

This book guides Muslims on how to navigate the Digital Age from an Islamic perspective. I like the section on ‘Takathur’ wherein the author writes:

“Allah says in Surah al-Takathur, “Competition for more distracts you until you visit the graveyards.” This ayah is traditionally understood as a warning against competing with others in regard to wealth and family. These are worldly forms of currency. 

“Social media adds a new form of currency – attention. This is measured in likes, comments, shares, and followers. We compete with one another over these metrics. The same way label wealthy people as successful, we now do the same for those with large online followings.” 

I am sharing the PDF of this significantly important work, which is indeed the need of the hour.

May Allah bless the author for writing this book.

Baarakallaahu Feekum.
