Can I have a minute of your important time? If yes, then continue reading.
There is a message floating around the network for quite a time, especially on whatsapp. You probably have seen it in form of text or video.
That message is about: Stoppage of Qurani Ayat on Whatsapp.
Why, they say. Well, because they get deleted and it is in the signs of the ‘Judgement Day’ that the believers will themselves delete the Qur’an.
That’s what they are saying in the message. The part about deleting of Qur’an by the hands of believers themselves and its being the sign of the Judgement Day is authentic. But the way they are conveying is not.
Deleting of Qur’an is not that easy. Its Allah’s book. He has taken the responsibility of its protection.
I have done some research on this, consulted a few scholars, just to get a clear picture on this misconception. Think about it, if you won’t share it, then in a way, YOU ARE DELETING IT.
We share to spread awareness, as a reminder, we share, because we want to reach out to as many people as possible. Right? And as we spend most of our time with our devices, what better way to reach out than this.
When we delete the Qurani Ayat from our phones, that is not out of disgrace. If you are doing it out of disgrace then that can be held against you otherwise you are okay. You see, once the message is conveyed, once we have it memorized, we move it to another place or even if we simply delete it, we are not doing it out of disgrace. And that is nothing like deleting Qur’an.
Don’t confuse yourself. First get a better understanding of things, consult, do researches and then spread it. We have already too many false facts spread on the net, I think we can do without more.
Thank you for your time.
