Question: O Noble Shaykh, may Allah treat you well; I was blessed with a child. Is it permissible for me to spread the news of that via the internet or Facebook so that Dua can be made for him?
Answer: Not at all! Do not do this. You make Dua for him; his family is to make Dua for him. Do not busy yourself with these affairs. Everyone who has a child is going to post about it on the internet?!
