Religious Principles of Interaction with the Media

This principle reduces many problems and damages in Islamic society that are proposed in two forms.

The Sovereignty of God Laws

On how to use the media, what acts as the upstream document and takes precedence over all other principles is religious teachings and divine programs. So what has come from the exalted God in the Qur’an and documentary narrative of saints is the final determinant of exploitation way of different mediums. So life must be divine flavor as the Holy Qur’an says: “[And say, “Ours is] the religion of Allah. And who is better than Allah in [ordaining] religion? And we are worshippers of Him.” (Al-Baqarah 138). If there is no God remembrance, the human will be released to himself: “And be not like those who forgot Allah, so He made them forget themselves. Those are the defiantly disobedient” (Al-Hashr 19).

The Rule of Using the Media Laws

We cannot be safe from media damages without a specific law. So for the use of media in society and family, there should be a media contract that will be used in two positions. First, it’s when the decision is taken to provide communication tools that specify the type of media. Second, it’s when the targeted media are in the hands of humans and the continuity condition use of these tools will become clear. Using media must be subject to religious progressive laws because the exalted God says in the Quran: “Do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]” (Al-Baqarah 195). Unsystematic use of modern tools of communication can bring people into the abyss of collapse. The principle of accountability, education, and awareness include familiarity with Islamic Iranian customs and correct training methods in Islam. The modeling principle includes using models of best correction practices of incorrect behaviors towards religious desirable behaviors including modeling the teachings of the Qur’an, Life of the Prophet and the Imams, Muslim scholars, and Martyrs. Management principles; the principle of replacing, including the replacement of family conversation and interaction, social connectedness, relations with neighbors and relatives, parenting, healthy recreation, and storytelling. The accompaniment principle, security principle, the establishment of an emotional link with prayer: “the prayer forbids one from indecency and evil thing” (Al-Ankabut verse 45).

Establishing an emotional link with religious centers; strengthening modesty, strengthening vision, honoring, and personification. Self-esteem and having a strong character is one of the immunization strategies in the face of injury and virtual media space.

Imam Ali (Upon Whom Be Peace) says: “Anyone who saw himself as great, his lusts despised in his vision.”

Concretizing the end of sins: If humans know the phenomena of sins have less guilt: “Say you, ‘travel in the earth and see, how was the end of the culprits?” (An-Naml 69).

The results showed that young people tend to use the Internet and mobile to change individual and group identity, their social and family values. Moral obligations in the e-Citizen system acknowledge that the emergence of information technology has figured out a new kind of citizenship which despite its many achievements, has challenged the moral and value system of society. So it notes the need for attention and providing appropriate moral strategies. The key means of pious and interactive in the area of interaction with the media in the first meaning is promoting human education that is limited and needs communication and focuses on empowering people to enter into a situation. It is important to hold justification of the need for moral order in life for decision-making. The created information space is by human access to modern media and deeply changing the information heaven causes our brains to be changed too, that’s, ways of thinking about issues, combining data and predict outcomes and actions have to be changed.
