Whatsapp, BBM, etc

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: What does mufti saheb suggest regarding the use of whatsapp, BBM etc. Is it not advisable to use, or fine?


A: Since the use of these features are dual purpose, for both right reasons and wrong reasons, it will be advisable that one refrains from using such features unless there is a genuine need and one is sure that he will not fall into any sin.

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