Social networking

Q: What is the shari view regarding drugs and social networking?



1. Drugs are impermissible in Islam.

2. It is permissible for one to use social networkings for one’s benefit provided one does not get involved in sin (e.g. involvement in illicit relationship, looking at porn or any animate object, taking unverified information, etc).

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
