In the olden days, where technology is barely
at its developing stage, communication and transportation takes a lot of time,
and energy. People often travel kilometers in extreme hardship just to deliver
massage. Scholars and students of knowledge travel long distance in search of
knowledge. In recent years however, there has been a rapid technological
advancement which makes communication easier and faster. As a result, the world
is now a global village where information is disseminated round the globe
within seconds. An important tool in achieving this goal is the internet and
social network. Social Networks are sets of social entities where people,
organizations, etc. are connected by a set of social relationships friendship,
co-working, information exchange, etc. (Nassar, 2013). Today, there has been an over whelming
increase in the number of computer users with people from various categories of
life subscribed to social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram
etc. People spend a lot of time suffering the internet and interacting in these
social networking sites. The average youth today spends four hours per day
interacting on social networking site (Andrew, 2016). Most of these internet users utilize
them for fun, very few use them in a beneficial way. As a result, a lot of time
is wasted in unproductive conversation. Islam teaches us to be very mindful of
how we spend our time. Hassan Al-Basri beautifully said “Oh Son of Adam,
you are nothing but a number of days, whenever each day passes then a part of
you has gone”. Since the internet is now an indispensable part of our
daily life, there is a need for scholars to utilize this opportunity to convey
Islamic knowledge through Da’wah.

 

The
Arabic word Da’wah simply means a call or an invitation. In the Holy Qur’an
this word has been used to indicate the process of calling or inviting mankind
towards the truth or to the right path prescribed for mankind by their Lord (Abdussalm,
1996).
The internet if well utilized by Islamic scholars, will play a very vital role
in inviting mankind towards the truth.
