Question

Assalamu'alaikum warahmatullahi wabarokatuh. I want to ask. What is ruling on using website with bad link or such as named with “siakad” which is “si” is used to call animal or people but with belittling them (in my language) and akad sounds like Arabic word عقد, which I think this could be mocking something symbolically. Is using this website allowed? Know that the feature inside it is for academic purpose, it is a word that is shortened from a text, and it is used by many education website. I don't know the purpose of the person who shorten it actually and fear that it is just a waswas.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

We do not know what you mean by what you mentioned about this site.

In any case, there is no harm in using the site for permissible matters.

The mere presence of a phrase or service on the site that contains an Islamic prohibition does not necessitate the prohibition of making use of the site in what is permissible.

We advise you to avoid and repel these whispers and strive to treat them.

Allah Knows best.
