Is it right to make heart ( <3 ) (on facebook) under posts like hadees or ayat?
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
It is permissible to express ones liking to a ayah or Hadith by “liking”, “showing love” or commenting with a heart on social media.
However, the “liking” is not to be restricted to social media. One should act upon the ayah or Hadith that they “liked”. It is an unfortunate phenomenon of our time that we are always “liking” Islaamic posts online but we do not heed to the purpose of the post; our lives remain unposted.
And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
