Transmitting cultural values and religious beliefs to the present generation was once considered the sole responsibility of the teachers and elderly members of the family.
However, with the rise of social media, this vital task of spreading the message of the Qur’an is now way more unchallenging in comparison.
The fact is, our world is turning into a global village with people belonging to different races, religions, cultures, and countries.
However, despite the apparent dissimilarities, they all profess astonishingly similar ideologies of life in general. This is precisely why social media proves so effective in reaching out to the entire world with ease, teaching them Islamic values while preaching to them the messages of our Holy Prophet (PBUH).
Case in point, here are 4 ways social media consistently assists the spread of Islam:
1- Islamic Content for Everyone, Despite Their Religion
Different websites, social magazines, applications, and channels provide intelligible services these days to spread awareness about Islam. This helps both Muslims and Non-Muslims learn the basics of religion without any obstruction.
2- Easily Connects With the Best Islamic Scholars
Additionally, we get to connect with the best Islamic scholars online from the comfort of our homes through social media. No matter which part of the world one is from, there are no restricted boundaries when it comes to broadening our horizons about Islam.
3- Positively Influence Others and Vice Versa
Furthermore, social media platforms make it possible for us to influence others, especially Non-Muslims, without bias.
We can share short influential stories about our religion or even a few motivational Qur’anic verses to highlight Islam in good light for others. Moreover, anyone can subscribe to or follow social media Islamic pages, sites, and applications whose purpose is to inspire people spiritually.
4- Greater Fundraising Opportunities
Lastly, there are multiple platforms we can turn to on social media for greater fundraising opportunities that support Islamic principles, including Zakat and charity. This keeps poverty from rising, strengthens the whole community, and gives people the opportunity to earn Allah (SWT)’s rewards in this world and the Hereafter.
An overwhelming majority of Islamic scholars capitalize on the efficiency and effectiveness of social media in spreading Islam. All in all, it’s fair to conclude that while technology came with its own challenges, it has indeed been of assistance in engaging with the community of believers worldwide.
