RESHARING OF WRONG POSTS



By
Ibn Abdillah As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori
13th Sha'baan, 1439AH

When we make a post that ought not to have been made in the first place due to the error in it, we have the opportunity to repent and remove it from our timeline on Facebook or elsewhere once we are reminded of it on yearly basis. To remain upon falsehood after knowing the truth is one of the greatest forms of arrogance. In the same manner, if you are the type that posts animate pictures which ought not to have been taken in the first place due to its violation of the Sunnah of our beloved Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم, you have the opportunity to repent and remove it from your timeline once Facebook reminds you of it every year. 

Resharing a wrong post or animate pictures (which could be sometimes shameful and meaningless) when you have the opportunity to delete them is an indication that you are upon ignorance or arrogance or laxity/negligence as far as some important aspects of your deen is concerned. None of these adjectives is good for a Muslim. Some men would post pictures of their wives for strange men to see and admire. Those strange men would even make shameless comments. Then, the same pictures would be shared on yearly basis. Where is our hayaa' (bashfulness)? A lot of Muslims are into this. This shows how strange the Sunnah is in our society. It shows how far away many Muslims are from the ways of our salaf (Predecessors). So, it is upon Me and you not to relent in seeking beneficial knowledge and take patience in applying them in all our affairs.

Let's not underrate any sinful act, a small charcoal of fire can get a whole house burnt.

May Allaah guide us right.
