English 7 - GLOBALIZATION AND THE USAGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA IN THE FRAMEWORK OF ISLAM
Human life has undergone significant social structural change thanks to the development of communication and information technology. It has also brought people around the world closer together as a global community, especially with the emergence of new media channels. This study investigated the Islamic implications of social media in a global society and the harm that secondary sources of information can cause to Islam and the Muslim world in the globalized era. However, as a religion, Islam has always defined halal and haram, as well as unique procedures for maintaining privacy, respect, modesty, honesty and decency. New social media platforms offer unlimited opportunities, but they can also put Muslims at risk. Social media, when used properly, has a powerful impact on Islam because it helps the cause of Allah, improves many people and reduces social ills. On the other hand, unrestricted or unlimited use of social media is rejected in Islam. Consequently, social media can only be considered halal if it promotes the ideals of Shariah. The article suggests that Islamic teachings and Islamic values should be properly taught and inculcated in schools and homes, that children and young people should be closely monitored and controlled, and that Muslims should continue to use and embrace Islamic science and technology in globalization.
