Facebook news agent

 Assalamualaykum!


Alhamdulillah am still breathing beside my wonderful man and my little womb explorer, he's doing very well and getting active especially in morning and at night :$ :$ :$ . Oh well, have you notice that spreading message via facebook is now very common and fast way? Well there's a pros and cons on this as usual, we are the one to choose whether it is for good or for bad. If you noticed, people are tend to share something that interesting to them, like a news, or pictures or quotes. Whatever it is we have to think for a second right before we click the share link. Yes, think whether it will brings bad or good, whether it will gives benefit or not or if it is just for fun, whether it will hurts anyone and what bother me the most is whether it will ruins someone dignity or not. 

I am so speechless when I saw this piece of newspaper with very big and obvious title "Ustadzah commits adultery with widow while her husband in Mekkah" on facebook. Well, I am not speechless of the news because it happens everywhere and it doesn't mean I agree with that action,  but I am speechless when I saw people are very keen to spread the news throughout the facebook and some even give harsh comment on this woman because she is ustadzah you see? It is such a humiliate news to reveal and spread actually, don't you think about that woman at all?  I am pretty sure that the case is still under investigation, and the woman did mentioned that she was framed. 

What if she actually innocent? Who's gonna fix the broken dignity? I am disappointed on the newspaper, because they take others dignity so lightly just to sell their newspaper out and now we become their agent to spread such news. The way they write the news is very shameless and cheap and as it is confirmed that this woman who is actually so-called religious practicer had committed adultery while her husband is in Mekkah. Then the facebook spreader of course will put this line along with their post "This is a true story and a reminder for all of us." WHAT??!! :o :o :o How would you know if it is a real story? :f

Don't we listen to this Quranic verses and hadith on covering your muslim brother and sister's disgrace?

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لا يَسْخَرْ قَومٌ مِنْ قَوْمٍ عَسَى أَنْ يَكُونُوا خَيْرًا مِنْهُمْ، وَلا نِسَاءٌ مِنْ نِسَاءٍ عَسَى أَنْ يَكُنَّ خَيْرًا مِنْهُنَّ، وَلا تَلْمِزُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ، وَلا تَنَابَزُوا بِالأَلْقَابِ، بِئْسَ الاِسْمُ الْفُسُوقُ بَعْدَ الإِيمَانِ، وَمَنْ لَمْ يَتُبْ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ الظَّالِمُونَ. يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيرًا مِنْ الظَّنِّ، إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ، وَلا تَجَسَّسُوا﴾ 
“O you who believe! Let not (one) people laugh at (another) people perchance they may be better than they, nor let women (laugh) at (other) women, perchance they may be better than they; and do not find fault with your own people nor call one another by nicknames; evil is a bad name after faith, and whoever does not turn, these it is that are the unjust. O you who believe! Avoid most of suspicion, for surely suspicion in some cases is a sin, and do not spy… (49:11-12)”

And the hadith: 

"He who relieves a hardship of this Dunya (this earthly life) for a believer, Allah will relieve a hardship of the Day of Resurrection for him; he who makes it easy for an indebted person, Allah will make it easy for him in the Dunya and the Hereafter; he who covers a Muslim (his mistakes and shortcomings), Allah will cover him in the Dunya and the Hereafter; Allah will be in the slave 's need, as long as the slave is in his (believing) brother's need…" [Saheeh Muslim]
Hope you got my point, it is about how we should be more selective on spreading message especially in social network like facebook, because it can spreads very fast like an unstoppable virus and once you have posted it, someone else will share it the never ending circle will be formed then people are talking about it on real world as well. Can you see that? Open your mind, yes widely. Use your brilliant brain to think for a moment right before you click on share. May Allah preserve us from being a bad spreader without we notice it. And have a blessed Ramadhan ahead! Just eleven days left!
