Social networks

Q: Is it permissible for a muslimah to give her real name in facebook?


A: With the abundance of wrong that is going on on social networks we discourage even males to be connected to this type of network. Understand the principle, where the harm outweighs the good it will not be worthwhile for a Muslim to be risking himself, his honour and deen in such matters.

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