Is it permissible to use facebook?

Question: Is it permissible to use facebook?

Answer: No, it is not permissible to do so. The Quraan-e-kareem tells us to not go near zina. By using this site

, one is exposed to an array of Haraam activities and an avalanche of ghair Mehrams and their information. Do not let Shaytaan trick you into believing that you will use it to propagate Islam.
