Respected Sahibzada Amer (may Allah grant him a long and healthy life) a very senior murid of sayyidi wa sanadi said,
We focus on staying away from television, as most of the programming is un-Islamic. However, little if any attention is paid to the internet. Inappropriate use of internet is more rampant and morally destructive than TV. Even the most religious and pious families are suffering from its corrupt use. Homes are being destroyed by this misuse.
Watching pornographic material, chatting freely with opposite sex individuals (or even same sex but in a lewd way) and reading indecent stuff leads to loss of modesty (haya) in ones character.
Modesty (haya) is an essential ingredient for being a true Mulsim.
The beloved Prophet (may Allahs blessing and peace be on him) said :
Haya (modesty) and Iman (faith) are two (things) that go together. If one is lifted, the other is also lifted. [al-Hakim]
Al-Haya is part of Iman.
Haya does not produce but goodness.
[al-Bukhari and Muslim]
Every deen has an innate character. The character of Islam is modesty. (Muwatta)
Modesty is part of faith, and faith leads to heaven; while vulgarity is part of unfaith, and unfaith leads to hell. (Al-Bukhari in Al-Adab Al-Mufrad, Ibn Majah and Al-Hakim)
Awareness regarding this issue has to be created in all Muslims.
May Allah save us from the inappropriate use of His blessings. Amin!

A wise person once said:
“Contentment is not the fulfilment of what you want, but the
realisation of how much you already have.”
When angered by someone, leave his presence or have him removed from your presence and drink cold water. If the anger is overwhelming then reflect: Allah Ta’ala too has rights over me and I frequently violate such rights. When He forgives us, we too should forgive the faults and errors of others. What will be my plight if He seeks to take vengeance?
Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi
When you marry you have to divorce a part of yourself.
Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh ul Haq
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
by Abu Abdullah Ibne Ismail
The tears that are shed due to the fear of Allah or out of his love are so great that they should be not wasted.
They are so blessed that one should wipe these tears over his face rather then letting them waste away.

Hearts without trust in God have to listen to a lot of advertisements from hell
Shaykh Nuh Keller, Deenport
Ilm is that asset which not only increases one’s knowledge and respect in his community, but it also makes his heart pure and keeps it protected from evils. It also teaches the heart and soul to live according to the commands of Allah Taa’la.

The most distinguished qualities of a true devotee of Allah are that he keeps his secret concealed, his self safe from sins and performs his duties towards Allah with full responsibility.
Hazrat Royam bin Mohammad
There are two ways of recognizing how to value and appreciate ilm,
(1) Become a seeker of knowledge (taalibe ilm).
(2) Do not restrict this knowledge to knowing only.
Mufti Mohammed Shafi (r.a.)
