Social media, Workshops

Social Media and Islam

This workshop is based on 5 key questions:

  • What is social media?
  • Why do you use social media?
  • What are the advantages of social media?
  • What are the disadvantages of social media?
  • What are your limits/boundaries on social media?

The main purpose of this workshop is to raise awareness of the impact of social media on our lives. The session aims to make you more wise, critical and accountable about the way you use social media in light of Quran and Hadith.

The session was delivered in 1hr 30min workshop to women of all ages. Every time we approached a key question, there was time for disucssion in pairs and then an oppertunity to feedback. We also used post – it notes to gather peoples views on the positive and negative impacts of social media. You can see some example suggestions below.

You can find the powerpoint and speaker notes below
