At that time, the aim of my thread was to stop the evil eye. But this has become even more terrible.
Many may think that this is old stuff, but we all meet challenges at various times of our lives. One of them is seeing our friends and family growing up, the dangers and Fitnah of the Selfie's and how we are sharing our private life with unknown non mahram's and others.
I personally find it despicable and try hard to stop friends family members from posting selfies on social media. It's not just selfies that are being posted, its even stories of a day out*, family fun, private moments and so on.
I also hate profile pictures* of people. Even innocent photos causes another to wonder off in the wrong direction. One day you see a Shaykhs profile picture, then next day you start seeing photos of others and the opposite gender, and then you start downloading other apps to get closer and closer, eventually you start going in the wrong direction* and then it's too late.
I was hoping if members could share anecdotes or short talks on the dangers of selfies etc.
Also try these threads for encouragement:
