In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

We know that Dajjal will use rumours and disinformation as a weapon.
What we are witnessing in our times is a 100% distrust of mainstream Media to the extent that even credible verified news is not being accepted. Muslims, believes conspiracies at the cost of acknowledging problems within our ranks.
Evangelic Christians believe conspiracy theories instead of verified and accepted news. Yesterday on CNN, a guy said in the Interview
If Jesus came to me and told me about Russia Collusion, I would still turn to Trump and ask his opinion.
I have sat in the company of Ulama where certain Mureeds have said, “I don’t care what you are saying, I will ask my Shaykh about this”.
How do we build credibility in this toxic environment?
