    The piece has been extremely well-written and conveys an unbiased view on the metaverse. My own personal opinion is to not involve facets of ibaadah or religious worship even for educational purposes as we never know when the thin boundary lines that exist are trespassed. A large percentage of the younger generation do not have the requisite knowledge to empower them with regards to Islam and such manifestations of using VR and AR to simulate pilgrimage and others kinds of worship can in future lead them to think that the obligations are discharged by doing these acts in the metaverse. Lifting of knowledge is not going to happen in a single day and these implementations like touching the Black Stone in the metaverse or simulating VR travel on Buraq are the beginning towards that end.
