  • Omar Walid Ragheb Cairo University



The information revolution and digital communication technologies formed the nucleus of major transformations in the modern era. This transformation was not limited to technical transformation and information and communication technology only, but also extended to various aspects of social, economic and political life....etc. This revolution has resulted in many challenges and changes facing contemporary societies, including our Islamic societies, as a result of the astonishing development in smart communication technologies and tablets, and the applications and software it left behind, which had a great impact on the process of easy access to information and virtual communication, and thus penetration and intrusion into cultures and societies. With ease. These rapid transformations in our Islamic societies have weakened their ability to clearly distinguish between right and wrong values ??and cultures that cross the borders of countries and nations, and thus weakened their ability to pick and choose between conflicting values ??in the contemporary world. In short, the effects of digital transformation appear through the lifestyles that social media reflects that do not exist in the reality of our Arab and Islamic societies, where the manifestations of wealth, consumption habits, eating and drinking methods, fashion and entertainment, as well as the presence of power at the top of the ladder of values, glorification of the authority of sex, pornography and tendency Individualism, irresponsible liberation, justifying illegal relationships and encouraging family disintegration and deviant behavior in exciting ways that hide behind implicit calls to adopt and encourage them, making it difficult for individuals to distinguish their content easily, which negatively affects the structure of societies in terms of intellectual and moral education
and religious.
This research is an attempt to shed light on the extent of the reflection of communication and information technology on the value system of our Islamic societies, and work to avoid the negative effects of this transformation with deep awareness and enter into the conflict generated by it with a strong will by confronting the authority of digital information that operates outside the scope of the personal awareness of individuals in an attempt to modify their behavior to serve its goals and objectives.
