A discussion on some of the harms of internet technologies, specifically social media in its various forms. The misuse of these technologies for evil is commonplace today. Many Muslims let their guards down online and do not give thought to how they interact with the internet and what this is doing to their time. The issue of seeking knowledge versus click-happy sociability and the overall absorption of time into a vortex of techo time-wasting is explored also.

A case study in researching the works of the great Imām, al-Bārabahārī. The noble speaker uncovers some of the allegations of Western "academics" against this great scholar of the Salaf. Theses atheist, orientalist "intellectuals" base their attack on ridiculing the Salaf, insinuating that they are feeble-minded since they did not open up their "reasoning" to taʿwīl (figurative interpretation), like the Ahl al-Kalām (people of theological rhetoric) did. In addition, the speaker uncovers poor research, in essence, lies quoted by these "academics" to attack Imām al-Barbahārī, blind reliance on heretical figures that oppose the actual writings of al-Barbahārī. The speaker concludes by warning the Muslims not to rely on unreliable sources (via Google etc.), this not being the approach of research for the upright Muslim.

Our noble brother Abū ͑Abdillāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī (hafiẓahullāh) gives an excellent short, yet comprehensive reminder regarding the importance of studying tawḥīd, and the need for its dissemination to the people in general due to the widespread ignorance concerning what is obligated upon the Muslim with regards to singling out Allāh alone in worship, upon the correct understanding of the meaning of Lā ilāha illā Allāh and its conditions, and the importance of knowing and abandoning shirk and its many forms and manifestations.

The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-salām) said, "O young men, those among you who can support a wife should marry, for it restrains the eyes from casting (evil glances), and preserves one from immorality..."

Abū ʿAbdillāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī (hafiẓahullāh) explains the importance of knowing the meaning of Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allāh. If we want to be upon the methodology of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa ṣallam) and enter into Paradise; if we want to be upon the Daʿwah Salafīyyah and not deviate from it; if we want to firmly hold onto the rope of Allāh; then we need to stick to the Sunnah of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-ṣallam) and understand what it means when we say, "Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allāh."
