Tap and Follow? Protect Your Religion

Shaykh Abū Ḥākīm

A discussion on the laissez-faire approach to following individuals on social networks. He discusses the lack of scrutiny exhibited in simply tapping and following everyone and anyone who shows some indication of religiosity or adds known URLs or retweets known reliable preachers. In some cases, in the past, unscrupulous characters have gamed others by creating generic, plausible names or slogans on social media and retweeted known speakers only to show their true colours once their following is large enough. The noble speaker encourages the listener to treat who you follow online according to Islamic principles of who to take knowledge from.
