VIRTUAL LIFE IS TO ENHANCE KNOWLEDGE By Abu Maryam Ibn Is’haq (Abumaribi)
VIRTUAL LIFE IS TO ENHANCE KNOWLEDGE
One of the most useful assets to mankind in life is knowledge. Knowledge has to do with anything that is acquired, which can be as a form of information or education. Knowledge is thus shared verbally.
Knowledge takes two forms; Beneficial knowledge and non beneficial knowledge. We all know the good one to mankind is the knowledge that is beneficial, the later may lead to mankind stray from the path of righteousness.
The amounts of degrees or certificate one posses is never the standard for measuring a person’s intellectual asset. Institutions are only a formalised learning center that require established procedures before one is admitted. Institution that grant certificate only serve as a framework, and this is just one means of acquiring knowledge. Knowledge acquisition can be derived from many means, which is not limited to just attending an established institution for certification.
As Allah has willed it to happen, the advent of another means of sharing knowledge evolved; The virtual lifestyle, which now makes learning easy to some extent. The seekers of knowledge need not travel long distance or go abroad, like the days of the past, before getting some knowledge. Virtual life makes it easy for those that know it’s utilisation, in learning certain knowledge and skills at the comfort of one’s bedroom.
The invention of some technologies are to ease the life of mankind; virtual platform is an essential part of this. Utilizing this technologies as it is supposed to be used will serve as a beneficial means for those that are goof in it. The user of this platform of knowledge need to be mindful of what course the technologies is used for, as the virtual life also form part of mankind deeds.
Whatever is intended to passout in wordings should be given careful thought before sending it to the world on the internet. Virtual life and it’s action, unlike physical and spiritual life, tends to be farther in reach when information is communicated through it. The sender of certain information should endeavour to make the wordings more of beneficial than non-beneficial. This is to avoid any liability attached to the misworded act. Allah reminded us:
مَّا يَلْفِظُ مِن قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ
“Not a word does he (or she) utter, but there is a watcher by him ready (to record it).” [Surah Qaf, 50:18]
