With the birth of smartphones and social media we often receive emails on Islamic information without sometimes knowing the source of the information. Kindly advise how we should treat such flow of information about Islam?


There are two aspects: (a) The person/s who run the site, (b) The information on the site. It is of vital importance to know who runs the site. The information being correct or not is secondary as many people place unanimously accepted information to attract visitors and thereafter propagate their incorrect beliefs and ideologies. One of our pious predecessors advised: Verily this knowledge is Deen (religion) see from whom you obtain it.
