Question: Virtuous Shaykh, I hope you will direct some golden advice towards the youth who are ‘practicing’; they dedicate themselves to the internet – may Allaah reward you with goodness.

Response: It is known that the internet contains good and evil. Whoever desires the good will find it; the internet contains Islamic sciences, linguistic sciences, industrial sciences etc…

[However] it also contains pure evil, a lot of evil. It has reached me that its evil is much worse than the satellite channels.

My advice to my brothers is: With regards to the internet as well as satellite channels is that they should have Taqwa of Allaah regarding themselves; they should know they were not created [for the internet] rather they were only created for the worship of Allaah, the Exalted and Majestic.

And if they lower themselves to the level of resembling animals – by fulfilling their whims and desires – then they have lost the Dunya (Worldly Life) and Aakhirah (Hereafter) – refuge is sought in Allaah.

Upon my Muslim brothers is to safeguard their religion and safeguard their time. They should not waste this precious precious precious life. [1]

By Allaah, a single minute is more honoured than a thousand Dirhams. Think about it, when death comes to a person and it is said to him: ‘give us all the world and we will delay [your death] by one minute.’ He will say: Yes.

For this reason Allaah, the Exalted and Majestic, said:

 {Until, when death comes to one of them, he says, “My Lord, send me back; that I might do righteousness in that which I left behind.” No! It is only a word he is saying; and behind them is a barrier until the Day they are resurrected} [23:99-100]

I ask Allaah to give us all a good ending.

It is mentioned in a Hadeeth:

There is nobody who dies except he will feel sorrow. If he was a person who used to do good, he will feel sorrow that he did not increase in his good deeds. If he was a person who did much evil, he will feel sorrow that he did not seek the pleasure [of Allaah] and avoid [His anger].

Safeguard your life my brother; By Allaah it is more valuable than gold and silver. If a person does not waste a single Dirham from his money, how does he then waste his life upon which happiness or wretchedness is based?!

O Allaah, make us from those who are happy. O Allaah make us from those who are happy. O Allaah make us from those who are happy. O Lord of the Worlds.

نصيحة للشباب الذين يعكفون على الإنترنت

المرجع: http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=161212

السؤال: فضيلة الشيخ! أرجو أن توجه نصائح ذهبية لبعض الشباب الملتزم الذين يعكفون على الإنترنت وجزاكم الله خيراً

ألجواب: معلوم أن الإنترنت فيه خير وفيه شر، والذي يبتغي فيه الخير يجده، وفيه علوم شرعية وعلوم لغوية وعلوم صناعية وغير ذلك، وفيه شر محض وشر كثير، وقد بلغني أنها في خطورتها أشد من القنوات الفضائية. فنصيحتي لإخواني:

بالنسبة للإنترنت أو للقنوات الفضائية أن يتقوا الله في أنفسهم، وأن يعلموا أنهم ما خلقوا لهذا وإنما خلقوا لعبادة الله عز وجل، وأنهم إذا نزلوا بأنفسهم إلى ما يشبه الحيوانات وهو إشباع الرغبات والشهوات فقد خسروا الدنيا والآخرة والعياذ بالله،

فعلى إخواني المسلمين أن يحفظوا دينهم، وأن يحفظوا أوقاتهم، وألا يضيعوا هذا العمر الثمين الثمين الثمين، والله لدقيقة واحدة أعز من ألف درهم، أرأيتم إذا حضر الموت لو قيل للإنسان: أعطنا كل الدنيا ونؤجلك دقيقة واحدة لقال: نعم.

ولهذا قال الله عز وجل:

{حَتَّى إِذَا جَاءَ أَحَدَهُمْ الْمَوْتُ قَالَ رَبِّ ارْجِعُونِ * لَعَلِّي أَعْمَلُ صَالِحاً فِيمَا تَرَكْتُ كَلاَّ إِنَّهَا كَلِمَةٌ هُوَ قَائِلُهَا وَمِنْ وَرَائِهِمْ بَرْزَخٌ إِلَى يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ} [المؤمنون:99-100].

أسأل الله لنا جميعاً حسن الخاتمة، ولهذا جاء في الحديث ((ما من ميت يموت إلا ندم، إن كان محسناً ندم ألا يكون ازداد، وإن كان مسيئاً ندم ألا يكون استعتب))

احفظ العمر يا أخي، والله إنه لأغلى من الذهب والفضة، وإذا كان الإنسان لا يضيع درهماً من الدراهم فكيف يضيع هذا العمر الذي عليه مدار السعادة أو الشقاء، اللهم اجعلنا من السعداء، اللهم اجعلنا من السعداء، اللهم اجعلنا من السعداء يا رب العالمين
