When Al Jallafa is a Social Media Advocacy Approach | Articles and studies

While the Messenger of God, prayer and peace be upon him, was in his mosque, which was lined with pebbles, a Bedouin came to Medina to visit his bowels. He wanted to relieve himself, so he sat down and urinated in a corner. of the mosque; So the noble Companions revolted to fall into it; So the master of creation, the Messenger of God, prayer and peace of God be upon him, forbade them, instead he ordered them to leave him until he urinated, saying, “ That he doesn’t slap him. And he said to them, “You were sent as facilitators, and you were not sent as insolvents.” And he dealt with the matter with the greatest kindness and simplicity, and said to them: They cast sins on his urine. -that is to say a bucket- of water, then he approached the Bedouin with the affection of the father and explained to him that none of this is proper in these mosques, so what was the Bedouin who compared the revolt of the people against him and their attack to fall on him with the tenderness of the Prophet, prayers and peace of God be upon him and his company, except that he raised his hands calling: Oh God , have mercy on me and have mercy on Muhammad and have no mercy on anyone with us, then the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said to him, “You have been quarantined. “

No one ever doubts the sincerity of the honorable Companions’ zeal against religion and the Prophet’s Mosque, but sincere jealousy and passionate passion which provoke an uncontrolled attack on the wrongdoer and the exaggeration of his deeds are completely counterproductive; You can imagine if the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, was not in the mosque and people fell on this Bedouin, what would be the result?

Then watch the interaction of the Prophet, prayers and peace be upon him, to understand the situation, treat the error in context, simplify the scene, advise gently, turn to the wrongdoer and contain him with great pity.

This scene we conjure up as we see battles erupt from time to time on social media, especially Facebook and Twitter, over events, situations and people. Unfortunately, the scene that prevails in these arguments is arrogance of expression, fighting spirit, verbal attack, and passing of superior judgments, and it all comes – along with Extremely Sorry – in verbal vases full of verbal arrogance, lack of taste, abandonment of transactional ethics, display of mocking muscles towards others, tyranny of insults and obscenities, and distribution of immoral descriptions, all under the title of defense of Islam and defense of Sharia.

Al-Hutaya when he leads the call on social media

In some of his books, Sheikh Muhammad Al-Ghazali mentioned the expression “Al-Hutay’a when he is busy calling on Almighty God”, and how skilled he was in this invocation; Al-Hutay’ah is the satirical poet, and differs even from all Arab satirical poets in that he satirized his wife with a poem in which he said:

He has the body of a flea and the legs of a mosquito.

A face like a monkey’s, even uglier

Her eyes sparkle when you see her

She frowns at the afflicted and moans

He also slandered his mother, so he slandered her, so what he said about her was:

step aside, sit away from me

May God rest the worlds from you

Your life – as far as I know – is a bad life

And your death may please our two companions.

And when there was no one left, he did not slander him himself; One day he looked in the mirror and said:

Today my lips refuse to speak

Human, so I don’t know who I’m talking about

I see a face that God has disfigured

ugliness of face and ugliness of its wearer

The most striking thing we notice in social media battles today over legal issues and issues is that many fighters carry satirist psychology and practice what they see as defending Islam by responding to their adversaries and refuting their statements.

Shaykh Muhammad al-Ghazali says in his book (Problems in the Path of Islamic Life): “I once wrote about al-Hutay’ah when he was engaged in da’wah; She asked: What do you expect a man whose nature is fierce, but to preach with seagulls of words and bad expressions?

The nature of some people diverts religion from its destination to its own destination, so instead of giving advice, it pushes back! Instead of giving, you take back! Then he said: “Psychological illness can be hidden behind enthusiasm for values ​​and jealousy for truth. A clear example of this man who commented on the division of the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace , said: It is a division whereby the face of God is not destined.

What is this way of supplying camels?

لا تجدُ أحدًا ممّن يمارسُ دورَ الحُطيئة في الدّعوة إلى الله تعالى بجلافةٍ وغلظة إلّا وهو يحفظ ويتلو ويستشهد بقول الله تعالى في سورة آل عمران: {فَبِمَا رَحْمَةٍ مِّنَ اللَّهِ لِنتَ لَهُمْ ۖ وَلَوْ كُنتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لَانفَضُّوا مِنْ حَوْلِكَ ۖ فَاعْفُ عَنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ وَشَاوِرْهُمْ فِي The question is ۖ, so if you decide, then rely on God ۚ because God loves those who trust. The general public who oppose him are included as enemies of religion in order to single-handedly justify his harshness.

And if we see with a little effort the context in which the noble verse was revealed, we will find that it was revealed in the battle of Uhud, when the ranks of the Muslims were disturbed and a third of the army returned to Medina, and the archers disobeyed orders and rushed for the spoils and separated their places, and a group of Muslims was defeated and fled from the battlefield, leaving the Prophet , may God bless him and grant him peace. , a battle in which the Prophet, may God prayer and peace be upon him, tasted great pain and lost seventy of the best companions, but the command comes from Almighty God to his Prophet to be gentle, merciful, emphasizing the quality of tenderness in him and avoiding harshness while he is in his most angry hours.

Commenting on the verse, Sayyid Qutb said, “It was God’s mercy that was granted to him and they obtained it; So I did, prayer and peace be upon him, merciful to them and good to them. If he was tough and hard-hearted, hearts would not be united around him and feelings would not gather around him. People need merciful care, great care, a generous screen, and a friendship they can afford, and a dream that does not limit their ignorance, weakness, and lack; Needing a big heart that gives and doesn’t need them to give, and carries their concerns and doesn’t concern them, and they always find attention, care, kindness, tolerance, friendliness and contentment, and c t was the heart of the Messenger of God, peace be upon him, and his life with the people.

And this gentleness and kindness should be with all creation, including non-Muslims. Imam al-Tahir bin Ashour says in (Al-Tahrir wal-Tanweer) commenting on the verse: “Meekness here is a metaphor for generosity of creation with the militant nation and Muslims, and forgiving estrangement polytheists and removing obstacles.

The attempt to justify impertinence in social media battles, that it is a defense of religion, is answered by a wonderful position of Musab bin Omair, may God be pleased with him, who is the first ambassador of Islam sent by the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, to Medina to pave the social environment before the migration; He was sitting in Asaad bin Zarara’s orchard, so Usayd bin Hudair and Saad bin Muadh heard of him, and they were on shirk, so Usayd bin Hudair came to see him first. We will withdraw if you have a need yourself, so Musab said to him: Where do you sit and listen? If you accept something, you accept it, and if you hate it, we will abstain from what you hate. He said: I am righteous. So he pointed his spear and sat down with them. the Quran to him, and they said: By God, we would have known Islam in his face before he spoke of his brilliance and ease.

After that, Saad bin Muadh came carrying his spear, angry, wanting to kill Musab bin Omair; The scene was close to this, so Ibn Ishaq said, “He stood before them swearing, then said to As’ad bin Zurara: O Abu Umamah, by God, were it not for the kindness between you and me, you would not be don’t throw this away from me, are you cheating on us in our homes with what we hate? Musab said to him: Or sit and listen, and if you are pleased with something and desire it, you will accept it, and if you hate it, we will take it away from you. Saad said, “I have done justice. Then he pointed the spear and sat down. He introduced Islam to him and recited the Quran to him. They said, “So we have known, by God, Islam on his face before he speaks; to brighten it up and make it easier.

Both men stood swearing – that is, verbally insulting and insulting – Musab bin Omair, may God be pleased with him. How did Musab cope with this? By assimilation and rational, logical and explaining speech he will present words to them, if they hate him he will stop them and not insist on them or impose on them. the entry of Usaid bin Hadeer, the entry of Saad bin Muadh, and the entry of the whole tribe of Saad bin Muadh into Islam at this time.

By God, if Musab had done as those who think they are the ambassadors and agents of Islam do today, they would repel the harsh, brutal and miserly response under the pretense of victory for Islam; What will be the result? !

Those with a fighting spirit who practice defamation under the guise of advocacy; They exhaust themselves and waste their energies and those of those who take them as adversaries, and you always see them ecstatic, thinking that they are fighting for the truth and for the defense of Islam, but one look makes you see that after the dust from none of their battles cleared, they left the ground a clear bottom, so they didn’t build them where they thought it was. They repair, they demolish while they believe to build.
