Welcome

Fiqh of Social media is meant to provide a faith based approach to navigating family, friendship, and community in the social networking age. It is understanding the life implications of the technology we use, and how to manage them without letting them manage us.

From Our Scholars

hussain_kamani_social_media“The Fiqh of Social Media project is important, just as we teach our children to tie their shoe laces, we need to teach them and ourselves how to navigate social media, and proper etiquette of its usage. Today the virtual world has become an extension to our lives. If we don’t take a hands on approach, we may not recognize our own kids.” -Mufti Hussain Kamani

Testimonials

“The fact that Social Media is something we use on a daily basis and for majority of us, it’s the main way of staying in touch with people. It’s good to get well researched information coming through on email through these newsletters and also on my Facebook feed through the page. And I like the fact that you use research regardless of religious based or not.” -Ammar M.

“Many of the problems you address are not limited to just social media. They also address the psychology of our generation and how we can overcome the problems that we don’t even consider to be problems.” -Tareq

“I have greatly benefited from your emails after my recent subscription, and found out about many things I’d never thought of before. I am a senior in high school”  -L.K.

“I enjoy your articles and I always try to apply it in my own life while using social media. You discuss current issues that every active person on the social media can relate to (like showing off or may be shaming people online) and this is probably what resonates with me the most. Trying to curb out these negativities and using social media with the right intentions and for the right reasons.”  -Aisha (UK)
