The debauched and Najat Al-Sagheera
Since I have no trade or business to keep me busy or use to pass my time, I absolutely have nothing to do. So, I started exploring social media networks to kill time instead of gossiping about others. However, I found out that that these sites included much more bad things than I expected. Well, I am not the first one to be so disappointed, because long before me and before Twitter, the veteran singer Najat Al-Sagheera sang: “Does he think he can toy with me?”
I thought Twitter was a place to pass time usefully, but eventually found it was a place for robberies and lies and a place full of debauched people who follow poets without thinking, as described in the Holy Quran. The only difference now is that they follow bloggers, though they both say things they do not do!
Many poets wrote poems about chivalry, gallantry and good manners without having any of these virtues themselves. They do not even think about what they write, but still write it because they found some audience that enjoys reading their words and wishes to become as famous. Some people found Twitter as the perfect platform to get famous without showing any respect to rules and regulations. While some users only tend to spreading lies, fraud, blackmail and saying what they do not actually do, others are so honest that one would ask to use their old ghutras as blessed prayer mats.
The Holy Quran described poets as people treading all paths. Almighty Allah meant that they talk about everything, which absolutely applies to some bloggers who talk about all topics and concerns. Therefore, I only follow those I know to avoid joining the debauched. I only follow accounts with real names to avoid being toyed with. After all, Najat AlSagheera might be prettier than me and has a nice voice, but I am taller and handsomer than the ugly bloggers you follow!
