For My Dear Precious Sisters

May Peace Be Upon You.
This is just a polite reminder to those who use Facebook and other social networking sites.  

Dear Sisters in Faith.
Dear sisters using the sites in itself is not bad but the way they are being used is indeed thought provoking. 
Many of my precious and good sisters are wasting their time on such sites. Moreover they are posting their snaps on them for all to see. 
I am sure all of us have read that Allah tells us in the Quran that women need to cover themselves from non-mahram men. Most of the sisters post photos which every other man can see along with their husbands and brothers or fathers.
I make this request, very humbly, to use the sites but not to overdo it. Do not waste your time on it. Please do not put your snaps on it. Kindly read the ayahs in the Quran on Hijab. For your help I can quote some here too....
33:59 O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad): that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful. ...

 Al-Ahzab [33:59]  

24:31 And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! turn ye all together towards Allah, that ye may attain Bliss. 

Al-Nour [24:31]
