Use of Internet and Other Modern Systems of Communications for Religious Purposes
Since the modern advanced means of communication are being used for the dissemination of the ideas, ideologies, the exchange of knowledge, researches and in conducting business deals, they have occupied a very special import in the modern word.
From among the modern means of communication the Internet is even more important. Through the Internet information of every type can be gathered even from the remotest parts of the world within minutes for nominal expenses. Unfortunately, this highly successful system of communication is being so abundantly used for negative, immoral and evil purposes that this aspect of it cannot be ignored or belittled.
With this perspective, the Islamic Fiqh Academy of India made this issue the object of its collective thinking in its 12th and 13th seminars held respectively during 11 to 14 February, 200, at Darul Uloom Islamia, Basti U.P and during 13th to 16th April, 2001, at Jamia Syed Ahmad Shaheed, Katoli, Malihabad, Lacknow. At both the seminars the tow aspects of the problem were discussed separately. Precisely speaking, while the theme of the 12the Seminar was “The Use of Internet and other modern means of communication for religious purposes. The 13th Seminar centered round The Use of Internet and other means of communication for conducting marriage and business transactions.
Fundamentally, the Academy holds that the use of the means has to e governed by the ends and objective for which to use them. We therefore are required to use the lawful means for reform, calling human beings to Isla,, enjoining the people what is right and forbidding them what is wrong. They, likewise, may also be used for other lawful ends and concluding business and other social contracts, proceeding with coution about the delicacy of the matters, as required by the Sharia. We, on the other hand, are asled nu the law of Allah to stay away from employing them in the acts of disobedience to Allah and His Apostle.
The Papers presented to the seminars have been collected in the present volume. In fact, the volume has two parts. While the first part discusses the various aspects of the use of modern means and systems of communication for religious purposes, the second one deals with the legal aspects of the use of Internet and similar other advanced systems for concluding the Nikah and business transactions.
After the demise of Maulana Qazi Mujahidul Islam Qasmi, the founder of the Academy, an editorial board was constituted which comprised several learned scholars associated with the Academy. The editorial board was assigned the task of revising the present collection of papers and then to select the important ones, curtailing the details wherever necessary. The Editorial Board completed the whole editing work and offered the scrutinized the book to the people of knowledge for their religious benefit.
O Allah! Show us the Truth and make it easy for us to follow; and show us Falsehood as it is and made it easy for us eschew from it. Ameen
