Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
I pray that each and everyone of you are in the best of Iman, Amal and Healthy both in body and soul. Insya Allah.
The topic above is referred to.
Lately, I notice that there are just so many local Malaysian blogs which dwell on matters that border upon or are entirely engaged in the spreading of fitnah or gnanimah which is haram in Islam.
Most of these writers who call themselves as sopo bloggers seem oblivious to the harm that they are doing not only to our Malaysian society including the Ummah but also to themselves and their families.
I wonder why they fail to realize that each word they type and publish that concerns anyone person or group will be taken into account by Allahu Ta’ala when they do pass away from this earthly existence into the Realm of Al Barzakh?
Surely, being bloggers they warrant at least to be in possession of the powers to consider the various implications of publishing content onto the public online platform of information that is the worldwide web?
Being a blogger does not mean one can simply write as one pleases and go attack someone willfully without rhyme or reason and then act as if one’s infallible.
It doesn’t make sense for one who can put words into order to fail to understand the religious, social and moral responsibilities that goes with the position that one chooses to be as a blogger who publishes his or her material into the internet’s archives.
Yes. Whether one is conscious or not, each and every article or comment is archived immediately into the internet’s archives and burned into the hard disks of the internet service servers one is subscribed to. That’s hard evidence which can be traced all the way back to one’s internet access account here on earth and in reality, one’s personal Book of Deeds in the spiritual realm of one’s being.
The Book of Deeds that keeps a record of each and every deed that we do is incorruptible and untamperable by us unless we totally and truly repent in the very sense of the act.
The so called SOPO bloggers here in Malaysia seem to be having a field day in thrashing the reputation and characters of their intended targets with no sense of fear of the repercussions that awaits them in the Yaum al Akhirat if not the Yaum al Barzakh that each and everyone of us will definitely enter one of these days?
Are we not Muslims who are aware of the implications of reckless blogging?
Those who spew lies and untruths in each and every publishing of theirs without fail seem to be clueless and totally ignorant of all of Allahu Ta’ala’s grave warnings to us?
Astaghfirullah hal adzhim!
Why is this so?
Are we still in the Yaum al Jahilliyyah claiming ignorance of this and that?
Truly we aren’t!
But why do these bloggers blatantly dare to abuse the trust that Allahu Ta’ala placed upon them to uphold the truth and enjoin others to goodness and join forces to combat the evil of this temporal earthly life?
Woe (waylun: an expression implying chastisement) to every backbiter, [who is a] slanderer, frequently engaging in backbiting and slander, that is to say, defamation — this was revealed regarding those who slandered the Prophet (s) and the believers, the likes of Umayya b. Khalaf, al-Walīd b. al-Mughīra and others
Truly, Malaysian Muslim bloggers can be better than the cartoon characters depicted here?
May Allah guide us all.
