After the cartoon controversy on Facebook, some Muslims removed/deleted their facebook accounts while most continued to use their accounts on one pretext or another. I was one of the users who removed their accounts from facebook. But I found that my fellow Muslims, rather than appreciating or encouraging this move, started raising questions, making fun and even fighting with me on this move! I tried to answer them to the best of my abilities, but was not able to convince many, infact anyone 🙂 So much so, that I started wavering a bit as well. I found this excellent fatwa on askimam.org, which made me come back on the track, Alhamdolillah. Hopefully for some of you, it might be helpful to take the decision to quit facebook.
