New Delhi Date. Thursday, June 24, 2021
Bangladesh’s Muslim religious leader and popular Maulana has issued a strange decree against Facebook’s ‘Ha Ha’ emoji. A few days ago, Maulana Ahmadullah had discussed making fun of people on Facebook by posting a 3-minute video. Soon after, he issued a fatwa describing how it was “haram” for Muslims.
Ahmadullah said, “Nowadays we use Facebook’s haha emoji to make fun of people.” Maulana Ahmadullah has more than 3 million followers on Facebook and YouTube.
It is forbidden to joke in Islam
Maulana Ahmadullah said in his video, “If you use haha emoji to ridicule, taunt or criticize someone on Facebook, it is completely haram in Islam.” For Allah’s sake, I urge you to stay away from this work. Haha don’t use emoji to make fun of anyone. If you hurt a Muslim, he will use language you never imagined.’
