Welcome to Janathi Message

Ramadan 2008 (The Blessed Month)


Internet and Islam

Muslims, especially the youth of today need to have an understanding of the technological advances of this time and age. It is the era of the fast motion where internet has a major role to play.

What can internet bring for Muslims?

The use of internet is a fast means to obtain a wide range of information, from update via news, shopping, to live one to one conversations. With its quick & easy way, we can access information on all fronts, without leaving the house.

Some concerns.

As with all man made inventions, internet comes with some drawbacks as well. It’s very important that the users should know that the internet is just a tool. Just as quickly as it can search for a topic on Islam, it can equally provide information of pornography, gambling, violence, terrorist and extremist ideologies, proving harmful for the user, child or adult alike.

As well as the general free access to all sorts of information the internet also shows a variety of opinions. As well as finding the Ahle Sunnah Wal Jammah methodology we can also be easily drawn towards fancy looking websites (such as Ahmadi, Shiite, Salafi, Deobandi etc..), which claim to teach Islam, however these websites are solely designed to trap the innocent user into believing in such ideas which are nothing but wrong interpretations and misquotations, causing the user to go further away from the truth. More alarmingly, this is not where it stops; the Non-Believers have also created corrupted sites to confuse the people who have little or no knowledge of Islam.

When browsing the internet, it is extremely important that you obtain information from such sites which abide by the Ahle Sunnah Wal Jammah ideology.

It is the responsibility of parents and the educated amongst us to guide the youth to access the correct information.

Now for the good news!

Janathi Message has worked very hard to develop a website that presents with an array of literature that looks into our beliefs, backed with evidence from Quran and Sunnah. We are further trying to compliment this by introducing books along with “Ask The Imam” facility. We also provide links to other Islamic websites.
