I’m seeing the image on the left go viral on Facebook and Tumblr, and again, I’m surprised at how heedless people are about verifying information. 

If you apply even a little bit of common sense, you will realize that this is false. How can just telling someone about the Day of Arafah carry such a massive reward? 80 years is almost equivalent to the reward of Laylat ul-Qadr!

Spreading false information about the deen is not a light matter, my brothers and sisters. It carries grave consequences. So please, fear Allaah in this matter and verify whatever information that comes to you before passing it on.

It shouldn’t be that hard right? May Allaah forgive us our ignorance and foolishness. Ameen.
