A Veiled Chick’s Outburst 02 ☁ Why Facebook Irks Me ~ Besides, All Books Come to an End



A Veiled Chick’s Outbursts comprise short and long articles, poetry and artwork, of a more personal nature about my experiences or issues that exasperate me be it something I heard, read, watched, witnessed or observed. It’s my way of letting off some steam, my incensed breathings (*^_^*).

Gary Turk’s Look Up


  1. Your post makes me sad ya Rabab, not just because you will no longer be on Facebook (actually, I’m not really surprised, and I know how to communicate & follow your writings) but because what you wrote is very true!

    I’ll talk about myself. Facebook at certain times actually made me miserable! For personal reasons and also with all the news and posts about politics. Yes, it’s a source of information (that you need to check if it’s true or not first). It’s a means to communicate with family and friends that life makes difficult to meet. But you’re right, it’s a prison and, what makes me sadder now, I’m still not ready to break free and get myself out of that prison. I tried before, I think I told you, but I returned and still don’t like being there but still stuck!!

    However, I’m happy I came across you there, one of the very few times I sent a “friend” request to someone I don’t know but Alhamdulillah I did it. You’re a beautiful person with a beautiful mind and personality, and you may be surprised, but I actually learnt from you a few things (and I swear, WAllahe, I’m not giving false praises or compliments, I genuinely like you because simply, you’re a true person).

    I promise I will give more attention to my email when I receive notifications of your new posts dear insha’Allah.

  2. Salam Rabab,

    I hope everything is in fine state on your side in-sha’-Allah.

    I never thought about Facebook like this before. Though I always feel that if someone spent half an hour (just say) on Facebook, in all that time maybe he/she really does something meaningful for 2 minutes. (Definitely, this does not go for everyone. This is merely my opinion.)

    For me, it’s not so much different as you described here. But if it’s true that I made 100 random friends here then it’s also true that I made one or two friends whom I really care and love and by whom I truly believed I am loved. (I believe that you know a name very well among a very few names who really matter to me (^_^).)

    I truly envy you. What you have done is not so easy. I hope one day that I will also be able to remove all those unnecessary things, which does not actually matter to me.

    You take care dear.

    With Love,

    1. As-Salamu Aliekum My Dear,

      You know when someone (So Special) like you tells someone (So Ordinary) like me that I meant something in her life (regardless if it’s a small or huge role), that thing is called “Made My Day.” You really have Made My Day (*^_^*).

      I don’t have enough words to express my happiness.

      I supported you because your every word seems so true to me. I love you because I can’t resist myself from doing so.

      Rabab, it was truly a blessed day for me when I met you. And I thank Allah for that day from the bottom of my heart.

      In-sha’-Allah we will be connected forever (^_^).

      With Love,

  3. Assalamu Alaikum Dear Rabab,

    This is by far one of my favourites! I indeed feel the steam. A very refreshing article that is absolutely to the point!

    There came a point when I shared some of these thoughts and feelings and so I closed my FB account, however I do not possess your skill and language to have been able to express my thoughts and feelings like you have done mashaAllah! I respect your choice and decision.

    May Allah (SWT) put barakah in your work and Allow you to use your talent in His servitude. Ameen.

    Lots of love,
    Roukaya xxx

  4. Facebook . . . I could not agree more!

    Never joined and never will.

    What ever happened to pen and paper? Unfortunately societies are becoming detached from reality and such things as Facebook promote this.


  5. Everything you say is true and when I found out Facebook was experimenting by changing our messages to each other, to see how we would react, it was the final straw. I am grateful they’re out of my life.
