Social media, serving as a conduit for the propagation of essential knowledge crucial for societal advancement, establishes a virtual sense of community among Muslims. This digital landscape facilitates connectivity, fostering mutual learning, especially in the realm of Qur'anic teachings. This discussion centers on evaluating the efficacy of social media platforms in diffusing Qur'anic teachings within the contemporary Muslim populace. The study utilizes a survey-based approach, primarily relying on interviews to collect primary data. The research consists of three stages: a comprehensive review of relevant literature, conducting interviews to gather in-depth insights, and providing a summary of the findings. The Glorious Qur'an serves as a guiding framework for Muslims, emphasizing the importance of ethical conduct and the responsible use of technology. Social media and digital platforms have expanded opportunities for Muslims to access and share Islamic teachings, facilitating the learning and preservation of the Qur'an and Hadith. The Qur'an encourages the harmonious integration of technology into the lives of Muslims, promoting the preservation of Islamic values and the equitable distribution of its benefits.
