Benefit: Tap and Follow? Protect Your Religion

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  Ustādh Abū Ḥākīm discusses the laissez-faire approach to following individuals on social networks. He discusses the lack of scrutiny exhibited in simply tapping and following everyone and anyone who shows some indication of religiosity or adds known URLs or retweets known reliable preachers. In some cases, in the past, unscrupulous characters have gamed others by creating generic, plausible names or slogans on social media and retweeted known speakers only to show their true colours once their following is large enough. The noble speaker encourages the listener to treat who you follow online according to Islamic principles of who to take knowledge from. 

The benefit is excerpted from the lecture entitled: Ḥidāyah (Guidance) and Its Fruits, from the 2018 Summer Seminar: The Methodology of the Salaf in Times of Fitnah.

Case Study: Researching al-Barbahārī - Don't Depend on "Shaykh" Google

  Abū ʿAbdullāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī

A case study in researching the works of the great Imām, al-Bārabahārī. The noble speaker uncovers some of the allegations of Western "academics" against this great scholar of the Salaf. Theses atheist, orientalist "intellectuals" base their attack on ridiculing the Salaf, insinuating that they are feeble-minded since they did not open up their "reasoning" to taʿwīl (figurative interpretation), like the Ahl al-Kalām (people of theological rhetoric) did. In addition, the speaker uncovers poor research, in essence, lies quoted by these "academics" to attack Imām al-Barbahārī, blind reliance on heretical figures that oppose the actual writings of al-Barbahārī. The speaker concludes by warning the Muslims not to rely on unreliable sources (via Google etc.), this not being the approach of research for the upright Muslim.
