I've heard about not keeping your phone switched on in your pocket when you are handling flammable liquids (such as petroleum), as the 'spark' emitted by the phone when receiving an incoming call could ignite the flammable liquid.
But what about the 'warning' below? (i received it in a recent email)
"As Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu
Received this warning from another group - Inshallah Take care
To those who have a cell phone:
Don't answer a cell phone while it is being CHARGED!! A few days
ago, a person was recharging his cell phone at home. Just at
that time a call came through and he attended to it; with the
instrument still connected to the mains. After a few seconds
electricity flowed into the cell phone unrestrained and the
person was thrown to the ground with a heavy thud.
His parents rushed into the room only to find him unconscious,
with weak heartbeats and burnt fingers. He was rushed to the
nearby hospital, But was pronounced dead on arrival. A Cell
phone is a very useful modern invention. However, we must be
aware that it can also be an instrument of death.
Never use the cell phone while it is hooked to the mains! ( I
always do this when my battery is flat !!)
FORWARD THIS TO THE PEOPLE THAT MATTER IN YOUR LIFE, I JUST DID!
"Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You
have guided us, and grant us Mercy from You. Truly, You are the
Bestower." (Surah Al-Imran 3:8) <
