Ali pageEdit

Hi Sa.vakilian Hi

During the last few months, I had some time off, so I looked at the pages relating to Islam on wikipedia. Over the last few years, a lot of incorrect material against Islam has built up on Wikipedia. I went through thousands of books in the London School of Oriental and African Studies library and on the internet. Looked through Sunni, Shia and the Roman books from that period. There is a lot of material on Wikipedia about Islam that is totally incorrect. One just has to look at the pages "Islamic views on slavery", "Muhammad and slavery" and "Ma malakat aymanukum". Even people Muhammad cared for deeply and provided for through the Bait Al Mall charity have been presented as slaves on wikipedia. Unfortunately the Muslims on Wikipedia spend more time fighting each other and discrediting people from the early history of Islam like Ali and Abu Bakr than they do actually going through wikipedia and correcting the incorrect material on Wikipedia that is in many cases totally incorrect and against Islam. In the process, unfortunately these arguments, give Muhammad and Islam a very bad name. I looked into Ali's family and Abu Bakrs family and realised that many early Scholars like Jafar al Sadiq and Qasim his grandfather from his mother side are as much related to Ali as they are to Abu Bakr. Ali even raised Abu Bakrs son Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr. Muslims are best off showing Ali's knowledge on the Ali's page and his scholarly achievements and his character. Fights between the Shias and the Sunnis give a very bad impression of Ali, Muhammad and Islam. The same is true on all the other Islam pages. Pushing sectarian views just gives a bad impression of Islam. Many of these views are based on history books written hundreds of years after the events and are exaggerated. Even Al Tabri and Nahj al-Balagha were history book written 300 years later. People ignore the Quran but concentrate on history books that were written 300 years later. Many of the conflicts on wikipedia are over the land at Fadak. Considering the level of resistance Muhammad was having at the time, I am sure many people at the time of Muhammad would have been saying Muhammad invented a religion to enrich his family. He took away the land from the Jews in Madina and gave it to his family members. Many people these days would then have said the same. You only get a complete picture once you read through the Sunni, Shia and the Roman books from the period. It was a tragic story of the Arabs going into Syria and Iraq that had just gone through the Byzantine-Sassanid Wars. Many people in Syria and Iraq hated each other. After going in, the Arabs from the desert started getting tempted by money and wealth in Syria and Iraq. What started as a small thing of Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr showing the Egyptians the house of Authman ended with Marwan and the Kawarij manipulating every one and a huge loss of life. Cousins fighting one another. Ali had a very difficult situation on his hand. Just image what was going through the minds of Hassan and Husein. Its a very tragic story, a lesson to all of us, a choice between Money and children or God. Aisha later realised she had been manipulated. When Marwan became the governor of Madina you could see the tensions between Aisha and Marwan. Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr and Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr were both killed by the umayyads. Later there were very close links between Abu Bakrs family and Alis family. Jafar al sadiq is a result of that. Its better to make the effort and find the truth, even if it hurts ones views and is contrary to ones views. If you have some time please look at the pages "Islamic views on slavery", "Muhammad and slavery" and "Ma malakat aymanukum". Try to be more constructive. We could change the future but not the past. Send me a message on my talk page if you want to assist in improving the image of Islam on Wikipedia. Thanks --Johnleeds1 (talk) 20:30, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Book by Sulaiman NadviEdit

Seyyed jaan,
Can you verify that Hadhrat Ayesha Siddiqa By Allamah Syed Sulaiman Nadvi is a reliable source on Islamic history? I am doubting that. Saintali (talk) 21:26, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

I did some Google search, the closest I could find is Seerat-e-Aisha by Sulaiman Nadvi. Saintali (talk) 08:41, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment CentreEdit

Hello! Now, some of you might be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:
  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with, the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".
  • Co-Director: The current Director for the centre is me (Dom497). Another user that would be willing to help with some of the tasks would be helpful. Tasks include making sure recruiters are doing what they should be (teaching!), making sure all recruitments are archived correctly, updating pages as needed, answering any questions, and distributing the feedback form. If interested, please contact me (Dom497).
  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

GAN December 2013 Backlog DriveEdit

Hello! A GAN Backlog Drive will begin in less than 4 days!

In past Backlog Drives, the goal was to reduce the backlog of Good article nominations. In the upcoming drive, another goal will be added - raising as much money as we can for the Wikimedia Foundation. How will this work? Well, its pretty simple. Any user interested in donating can submit a pledge at the Backlog Drive page (linked above). The pledge should mention the amount of money the user is willing to donate per review. For example, if a user pledges 5 cents per review and 100 nominations are reviewed, the total donation amount is $5.00.

At the time this message was sent out, two users have submitted pledges for a total of 8 cents per review. All pledges, no matter how much money, are greatly appreciated. Also, in no way is this saying you must make a pledge.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or leave a message on the Backlog Drive talk page. And remember, there are less than 4 days before the drive starts!--EdwardsBot (talk) 03:15, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

GAN December 2013 Backlog DriveEdit

Hello! Just a friendly reminder that the GAN Backlog Drive has begun and will end on December 31, 2013!

If you know anyone outside of the WikiProject that may be interested, feel free to invite them to the drive!

If you have any questions or want to comment about something regarding the drive, post them here--EdwardsBot (talk) 00:08, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

March 2014 GAN Backlog DriveEdit

It's that time again! Starting on March 1, there will be another GAN Backlog Drive! There will be several changes compared to previous drives:

  • This drive will introduce a new component to it; a point system. In a nutshell, older nominations are worth more points than newer nominations. The top 3 participants who have the points will be awarded the Golden, Silver, or Bronze Wikipedia Puzzle Piece Trophy, respectively.
  • Unlike the December 2013 Backlog Drive, earning an additional barnstar if you reached your goal has been removed.
  • The allowance to have insufficient reviews has been lowered to 2 before being disqualified.
  • An exception to the rule that all reviews must be completed before the deadline has been created.

Also, something that I thought I would share with all of you is that we raised $20.88 (USD) for the WMF in the December 2013 drive. It may not sound like a lot but considering that that was raised just because we reviewed articles, I would say that's pretty good! With that success, pledges can be made for the upcoming drive if you wish.

More info regarding the drive and full descriptions regarding the changes to this drive can be found on the the drive page. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message on the drive talk page.

I look forward to your participation and hope that because of it, some day the backlog will be gone!

Main Page appearanceEdit

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of the article The Twelve Imams know that it will be appearing as the main page featured list on March 21, 2014. You can view the TFL blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/March 21, 2014. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured list directors Giants2008 (talk · contribs), Crisco 1492 (talk · contribs) or SchroCat (talk · contribs), or at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured list. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad.   Thanks! © Tbhotch (en-2.5). 04:59, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

@User:Faizhaider, Salam. As you see above, the list will be appeared on the main page, Thanks God. I suggested to one of the director to change the date and replace it with Amir al-Momenin's birthday (13th May). Best wishes.--Seyyed(t-c) 18:51, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
I can change the date if you like, but May 13 is not going to be possible. That is a Tuesday, and TFL only runs on Mondays and Fridays. The 12th (a Monday) is available, but it's up to you whether you want the slot. Please let me know quickly whether you want the date change, so I can pick an alternate list for next week if necessary. Giants2008 (Talk) 21:04, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Salam alaikum man, this might make you laugh. Seven years ago, you added a source by Fred Astren at Islamization of Iran but there is no title or ISBN number.

Jafar PanahiEdit

Hello, A while back I was working on the Jafar Panahi page. As far as I know there is no full biography on Panahi so the article is a bit limited. The one section in the article that was already very large when I started working on it and that I have not significantly contributed to relates to his political imprisonment beginning in 2010. In my opinion this section needs a lot of work and clarification. I am not sure if all of the information is up to date and accurate and am concerned that it may currently be misleading. I was hoping that either you or someone in the Iran project could take a look at the article and make sure that it is currently accurate. Thanks, --Deoliveirafan (talk) 01:47, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Hello, Unfortunately, I don't have enough information to help you ;-)--Seyyed(t-c) 14:22, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Wahhabism and ISISEdit

I have moved my response to you here from Mhhossein's page, as I didn't want to clutter her page up! I don't mind you intervening at all, every contribution is welcome. Basically I only copy-edit in Wikipedia, though I do check footnotes quite a lot (presently wading through the ISIS ones as you will see from the View History pages!). I haven't looked at the references in the ISIS article yet that are supposed to support the Wahhabism claim, mainly because I have steered clear of the subject as well beyond my expertise and knowledge. As I am cleaning up the footnotes in the ISIS article, I will have a look at this now, and those that don't support I will tag. As for the other article, on Wahhabism, what you say doesn't surprise me. Quite a lot of Wiki article footnotes don't support claims in the text, and this can go unnoticed and unrectified, sometimes for years, in my experience, going by the retrieval dates. Doubtless readers who do notice just say, "Well, it's Wikipedia, what can you expect?" Depressing. I think I had better not get into the whys and wherefores of ISIS's links with Wahhabism, but thanks for the information you gave. --P123ct1 (talk) 15:27, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

PS So it was you who added the Kharijites part, was it? I seem to remember whoever it was had to fight to get it in, and it's still there!
-P123ct1; Yes. I provided sources which have accused ISIS for Kharijite beliefs. Surprisingly, some of them are Salafi themselves. Of course, ISIS does not accept it due to extremely negative connotation of this title. In addition, I think you should start a discussion in the talk page of the article and ask those who believe ISIS is Wahhabi to provide reliable source for this claim. --Seyyed(t-c) 17:25, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Seyyed I might do that, after I recover from the exhausting battle I have been having with editors, two in particular, over exactly how to call ISIS a "terrorist" organization in the article. You say ISIS don't accept being called Kharijite and having looked at the Kharijite Wiki article I can see why. There is another question I have wondered about. Why don't ISIS like the "Daesh" name? They take that as an insult as well. Do you know why? (I might add your answer to the text, if you have a reference for it, or I could find one, if I knew exactly how to spell that word, or acronym, in English, there are so many variants.) --P123ct1 (talk) 17:59, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't know why they dislike Daesh. --Seyyed(t-c) 18:41, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Islamic State and ISISEdit

On another point, I notice you speak Arabic, so perhaps you can help answer a question which is proving to be a bone of contention between me and another editor, who can speak Arabic (I can't). It's on the same article, ISIS, which I've noticed you have edited as well. What do ISIS now call themselves, "The Islamic State" or "Islamic State"? I haven't trawled through all the footnotes, but notice there are discrepancies in some of the articles in English. I came across a translation from the Arabic in one footnote (you click on a link for the English) and it says "Islamic State" without the "The". My adversary (!) insists the translation should be "The Islamic State" and Werldweyd(sp?) I notice once said the translation from the Arabic is "The Islamic State". I noticed there was once an unresolved dispute about this in the al-Baghdadi article as well. I do know "al" means "the", but beyond that I know nothing. What is the correct name, do you know? It would be nice to straighten this out as the ISIS article is hopelessly at sea on this, both versions are dotted throughout it. --P123ct1 (talk) 15:27, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

الدولة الاسلامية means The Islamic State, however using capital letters for Islamic State in English may solve the problem as well. What's your idea?--Seyyed(t-c) 17:30, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean by using capital letters for Islamic State. Sometimes the press says, for example, "The new group, Islamic State ...", and sometimes, "The new group, the Islamic State ...", but obviously never "The new group, The Islamic State ...". In view of what you say, I think it should be called "the Islamic State" in the article's text, but "The Islamic State" in headings and infoboxes. That is useful information I can quote if necessary if people dispute changes. Thanks. --P123ct1 (talk) 18:26, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
In my view, it is not important at all.--Seyyed(t-c) 18:39, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
I am surprised you say that. This is an encyclopaedia, after all. Good encyclopaedias are pretty rigorous about things like this. --P123ct1 (talk) 22:16, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Seyyed: عصر به خیر this editor P123ct1 obviously is incompetent to distinguish between Arabic and Farsi. And to P123ct1, be advised that I certainly don't cut people heads off. Your two-faced underhanded statement(s) about me are racist and a violation of WP:PA. Back off already! Worldedixor (talk) 00:56, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Seyyed: I have removed my ill-advised joke from my earlier comment here. I meant no harm by it. I am sorry you were drawn into this. --P123ct1 (talk) 07:59, 2 August 2014 (UTC) ]

Seyyed: I think I understand now why you didn't think it mattered whether it was "the Islamic State" or "The Islamic State". I don't think Arabic makes the distinction in names of organisations, publications, etc between "the" and "The". In English a big fuss is made of this (as I know from my former employment). For example, one newspaper is called "The Times", never the "Times", and another is called "The Daily Telegraph", never the "Daily Telegraph". So I don't think it matters whether the ISIS article calls it "The Islamic State" or "the Islamic State", as you said, but there will need to be consistency in the article, one or the other, and I will handle that. --P123ct1 (talk) 14:12, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi! I think this is an important distinction to make, as it can mean two different things. ISIS is claiming to be THE Islamic State, not just AN Islamic State. For example, Iran claims to be AN islamic state (more specifically, an islamic republic), but ISIS is claiming to be THE only true, legitimate, etc., islamic state. Hence the "The" part plays a definitive role in its self-styled name. My two cents. --ExperiencedArticleFixer (talk) 05:56, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank for your comment. At present I am not active on this article and you can discuss with @Mhhossein:.--Seyyed(t-c) 07:03, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Hadith of MubahalaEdit

Salam alaikum Seyyed, I decided not to buy a new computer yet so I will still edit in sha Allah but at a slower pace. Would you still like some commentary and help with improving the article? MezzoMezzo (talk) 04:27, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Alaikum Salam, I worked on ISIS and some others articles during these days. I am busy at work, university, family life, etc. however, God willing I will try to return to that article.--Seyyed(t-c) 17:54, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Let's Improve The Fourteen InfalliblesEdit

Salam Alaykom seyyed. I'm going to improve the The Fourteen Infallibles, hence I've prepared a new background in my sub-page, which is a combination of the old back ground and recently gathered materials by me. But, unfortunately, I don't know which parts should be omitted because outcome is a rather long text consisted of 6 paragraphs !. Please help by omitting unnecessary parts. By the way, a another editor has proposed his own essay on this issue which should be considered along with the above materials. Thanks Mhhossein (talk) 14:27, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Alayko Salam. Sorry, I am too busy this week. God willing I will join in the cumming week. God bless you. Best. --Seyyed(t-c) 04:29, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog DriveEdit

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

GA CupEdit

Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!

As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:

For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.

For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).

The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

WikiProject Good Articles - GA CupEdit

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup
 

WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.

Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.

Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.

ConsultEdit

I have recently encountered an aggressive editor who insults me and my religion and makes personal attacks, and I would like your advice on how to handle this, please.

1- here, this editor, Andres Feder, insisted on insulting religion by repeating the phrase "degenerate religious thinking", and here by referring to “all religious fiction” and saying that "all religious texts are fictional", even when I told him that Wikipedia does not care what our beliefs are. He further insulted me by saying, "You can believe in whatever figments of imagination you want!", after which I warned him and asked him to respect the beliefs of others.

2- He always pretends that I am upset because of the policies, but I try to respect the policies and his behavior has irritated me.


-Me: "This is the last time you are insulting my beliefs, I respect yours so please respect mine." [1]

- Editor: "If these policies cause you offence, you are free to set up your own wiki and use any sources you want there". [2]

-Me: "Of course We are not talking about the policies. The policies are highly required for maintaining an encyclopedia. This is you who causes offense to one's beliefs." [3]

3- The editor tries to use insulting sentences and examples even when we are discussing something else. When I asked "Lightbreather" to guide me on this, Feder came in and said " Not to support the Iranian dictatorship or any other church-state".[4]

Or here he used this example which is in fact an insult to Khomeini: "According to Ayatollah Khomeini, God likes sick-minded and deranged forms of punishment"[5]


4-I tried to solve the problem through his talk page, but he made more attacks and removed exchanges:[6] There he said, "you expect me to respect someone who everyone knows was a deranged madman?" (referring to the Iranian Ayatollah Khomeini).

5- You gave him another request to be polite, but he removed that message, too: [7]

6- Some other insults are here: [8]

What can I do for this? Please help me solve this problem. Mhhossein (talk) 19:21, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

@Mhhossein: Rest assured, your behavior irritates me too. For instance, here where you imply that my cleaning up the Arba'een article could be counted as "vandalism". False accusations of that kind are a well-known symptom of a problem editor: [9]. My goal is to have an encyclopedia with reliable, serious information - if that is your goal too, you shouldn't have any problems with my edits.--Anders Feder (talk) 23:34, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Anders Feder: Read that again carefully and you'll see that there it is mentioned that I don't account your edits as vandalism and I assume your good faith. why can't you understand sources or policies are not being discussed here, we are addressing your behavior toward others. Mhhossein (talk) 03:07, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
@Mhhossein: Read that again carefully and you'll see that there I didn't write that you "accounted" my edits as vandalism. I wrote that you said you could. Which you couldn't, because it wasn't vandalism by any stretch of imagination, regardless of whether you thought it was in bad faith or not. Why can't you understand that behaving properly is as incumbent upon you as it is on everyone else.--Anders Feder (talk) 03:37, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
@Anders Feder:; You remind me the old days of 2006-2007, when I was younger and had many challenges here in wikipedia. Non of my old friends and opponents are not active today. By the way, while you have correct understanding of the policies, your aggressive approach bother the others. You completely, violate Wikipedia:Etiquette, particularly Wikipedia:Civility. I warn we do not tolerate such manner in wikipedia.--Seyyed(t-c) 11:00, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
Warn away to your heart's content. I see I have been around longer than you have, and am dismayed to see how various groupings such as your own have consolidated areas of Wikipedia for pushing propaganda in place of encyclopedic content. The basic idea seems to be to post so much dubious content that good-faith editors eventually stop bothering trying to rectify it.--Anders Feder (talk) 11:22, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
I am happy to meet someone who is active here longer than me and completely aware of the policies. Please clarify where and when I propagate ideas in wikipedia. As you can see in my contributions, I have always asked people with different viewpoints to participate to make better article based on a broader consensus. You can examine my approach in Hezbollah article when trying to make it Good article by collaboration with the Jews and Sunnis. You just blame the others who are disagree with you and attack them without providing evidence for your claims. At least, you can see if I wanted to propagate here I could do it here[10].
No, I don't. You are the one blaming me for disagreeing with you without providing evidence for your claims. If you have done good work in the past, that isn't reflected in how you are responding to me here.--Anders Feder (talk) 00:19, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

@Mhhossein and Anders Feder: I read your discussions from the beginning in the Talk:Arba'een to check the Etiquette. Let's suppose Anders Feder is right. However, you use negative prejudice, as if you are certain that Mhhossein wants to propagate his religious views. You could use polite manner instead of saying "teachings which are all religious fiction"[11] and [12]. You completely neglected most of Wikipedia:Civility. You could have said, "I disagree with you about the religious ideas and teachings and Wikipedia does not consider religious texts as reliable academic sources." When you attacked directly to all religious ideas instead of what is necessary for the article, then Mhhossien was obliged to defend them [13]. At this time, the discussion was far from what could improve the article. Wikipedia is not a forum to attack or defend any religion.[14][15] Mhhssien, repeatedly reminded you that the issue is not the validity of the religious ideas but it is the reliability of the sources.[16] Then I entered, and showed you how a constructive discussion can solve the problem and you accepted.[17] As you see in this case, your etiquette lead to controversy instead of consensus building. --Seyyed(t-c) 00:59, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Please, do tell me by which policy or guideline Mhhossein was "obliged" to defend any political or religious view. I am very very interested to learn of it.--Anders Feder (talk) 01:04, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
@Mhhossein and Anders Feder: When you changed the issue from discussion about the article to discussion about the religious teaching, it is a natural reaction. I do not want to support his manner and a professional editor should avoid such discussions. You see, your manner is very good trick to mislead the other editors and have led to controversy many times.--Seyyed(t-c) 01:12, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
No, I don't see that at all. When was the last time you had a chat with Mhhossein about his manners, by the way?--Anders Feder (talk) 01:20, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
I guess you try to change the issue as if the problem is Mhhossein's manner. He might misunderstand WP:NPOV and WP:Reliability but he did not violate Wikipedia:Civility as you did frequently. In my view, he could act more cleverly so you could not disturb him. --Seyyed(t-c) 01:27, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
I'm not changing the issue at all. I am telling you what the issue is.--Anders Feder (talk) 01:29, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
@Anders Feder:The issue is violation of Wikipedia:Civility by you.--Seyyed(t-c) 01:32, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
No, it isn't.--Anders Feder (talk) 01:33, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
@Sa.vakilian:Of course it is. I reminded this to Anders Feder and told him what the real reason of my concern is [18]. Mhhossein (talk) 03:43, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
@Mhhossein:No, it isn't - no matter how many times you say it. As I've told you repeatedly, I have not attacked any religion - rather, you have chosen to be offended that your religion is not a reliable source.--Anders Feder (talk) 04:56, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
@Anders Feder: Your previous recorded behavior explicitly shows whether you attacked or not, let the world judge it! Mhhossein (talk) 05:09, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
@Mhhossein:I agree!--Anders Feder (talk) 05:34, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Request for checking persian wikiEdit

Hello Seyyed. With regards to a proposed merger of the muslim holiday articles Mid-Sha'ban/Barat Night, I found that only the Persian Wikipedia has two separate articles as well. Since you speak Persian and are described on the Iran-Wikiproject as an expert in Iranian islamic matters, I would like to ask if you could please check the two Persian articles (Mid-Sha'ban and Barat Night). Do they describe the same subject like on the English Wikipedia or is there really a difference? Thanks! HyperGaruda (talk) 20:48, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Aggravating newsEdit

I've seen the many images you uploaded to Wikipedia, and which were subsequently migrated over to Commons. I fully concede that you thought you were doing the right thing: Sajed.IR did (and still does) state that all its content is available under the GFDL.

Unfortunately, the people running Sajed.IR did such a slipshod job of maintaining the necessary provenance details that it's impossible to tell whether or not they actually had the copyright to any of the images, and therefore whether the release was legitimate. (And in fact, on at least one occasion, they "released" photos that were actually owned by the BBC.)

So we can't trust Sajed.IR's statements that their content is GFDL-available, and thus all the images you uploaded because you thought they were free, have to be deleted. You can still re-upload Sajed-sourced images as non-free, though. DS (talk) 00:24, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

@DragonflySixtyseven: Hello, the issue relates to several years ago and I was not aware of this problem at that time. I have not uploaded any file in recent years. I agree with you about Sajed.ir; however, some of the photos were taken more than 30 years ago and therefor they are in public domain according to the Iran's copyright law. --Seyyed(t-c) 02:46, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Could you post that comment on the deletion request, then? Thanks. DS (talk) 02:59, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

who is called sunni?Edit

Recently i have started editing on Shia–Sunni relations. There is an issue. At this article, a wahhabi muslim had been considered as sunni muslim and concludes that the Shia and Sunni don't have good relations, but in fact shia and wahhabi muslims don't have good relations. I think that should make a difference between sunni and wahhabi, because at recent years we see unity between shia and sunni in many muslim countries.

For example, we see this sentence at that article :"Some tension developed between Sunnis and Shia as a result of clashes over Iranian pilgrims and Saudi police at the hajj". This tension was happened between shia and wahabbi muslim no shia and sunni.

This is my honor that you help me. Thanks.Savior59 (talk) 06:52, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

@User:MezzoMezzo, Salam Alaykum, can you please help me with this question. From one view point, all of those who consider the Rashidun as legitimate Islamic rulers are Sunnis. This definition even contains Mutazilis. From the other view Sunnis follow particular schools of theology and Fiqh which are considered by Wahhabis as Bid'ah. On the other side Shias tolerate traditional Sunni schools and live with them peacefully in most areas, while they do not consider Wahhabis as Sunni and have negative view towards them. --Seyyed(t-c) 03:54, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Walaikum as salam, man I am sorry for being so late. Long, long story. Anyway, my attitude is to go by what sources say: anthropological and sociological studies consider Wahhabis a subcategory of Sunni because, as you hinted at, the mainstream/objective view is that Sunnism is determined by a sect's position on leadership in the beginning, i.e. the Rashidun or the Ahlul Bait. Or, in the case of Ibadis, some of the Rashidun and not others. The various relations and positions of modern day movements like Wahhabism, Deobandism, Barelvism etc. don't relate to that and thus would have no bearing, as there are even non-Wahhabis/non-Salafis among Sunnis who also don't follow one of the four traditional schools. Also, I would agree with the claim that Mu'tazilah were technically Sunnis and a number of modern academic professors have suggested as such, but unfortunately most Sunnis of all different varieties react too emotionally, sort of like on the issue of Ahmadiyya being Muslims or not, so discussion becomes difficult.
That's my own personal viewpoint as one editor; I cannot claim that absolutely true. Everything has to go back to what reliable, mainstream sources commonly say. MezzoMezzo (talk) 04:21, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Salam Alaykum, Thank for your complete answer.--Seyyed(t-c) 04:47, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi!Edit

ASA, Sa.vakilian. Thanks for thanking me. I see you haven't clarified that apparent contradiction in the article yet. I'd like to understand Ali's story, could you please do it? Thanks. --ExperiencedArticleFixer (talk) 05:37, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

@ExperiencedArticleFixer:, I propose to read The Succession to Muhammad (book)[19], to understand the historical event. Wilferd Madelung has reviewed the story in detail. IF you want to be familiar with Ali's viewpoint, you can read hid letter to Malik al-Ashtar, the governor of Egypt.[20][21]. Best wishes.--Seyyed(t-c) 06:58, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! They seem like valuable sources, I'm going to check them out. The article still needs to be corrected! --ExperiencedArticleFixer (talk) 07:26, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

When doing difficult-to-get right edits, it is a good idea to use a sandbox. You can create a sand-box by clinking on this link and saving User talk:Sa.vakilian/Sa.vakilian sandbox1.

You appear to be well-meaning, but you made mistakes in your attempts to edit List of casualties in Husayn's army at the Battle of Karbala. These included:

  • Deleting the code for numbering <ol>
  • Claiming that the battle took place in 680 AH. In real life it took place in 61 AH.

Iraq Invasion of Iran (1980)Edit

 

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Iraq Invasion of Iran (1980), and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CbL9IHqYmI.

It is possible that the bot was mistaken and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) CorenSearchBot (talk) 20:46, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

@CorenSearchBot: OK. There is a too long template on the Iran-Iraq war. Thus I want to shorten it by making a new article. Please, let me to improve it. --Seyyed(t-c) 20:51, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Iraq Invasion of Iran (1980)Edit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Iraq Invasion of Iran (1980) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CbL9IHqYmI. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Qpalzmmzlapq (talk) 20:47, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

@Qpalzmmzlapq: OK. There is a too long template on the Iran-Iraq war. Thus I want to shorten it by making a new article. Please, let me to improve it. --Seyyed(t-c) 20:51, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

@Sa.vakilian:, go ahead and do so. Qpalzmmzlapq (talk) 20:54, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
@Qpalzmmzlapq: Can you please remove the tag and wait until tomorrow.--Seyyed(t-c) 20:59, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
@Sa.vakilian: Done. Qpalzmmzlapq (talk) 21:07, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
@Qpalzmmzlapq: I tried to improve the new article so that it does not look as a copy of the main article (Iran-Iraq war). However, I have not removed the information from the main article yet. I look forward to receive the other editors viewpoint. I hope this attempt satisfies you.--Seyyed(t-c) 15:43, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
@Sa.vakilian: It looks good. Just remember that the page has cite errors (it will tell you at the bottom of the page). Qpalzmmzlapq (talk) 16:12, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attributionEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Iran–Iraq War into Iraq Invasion of Iran (1980). While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. --Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 22:01, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

@Diannaa: Excuse me, I should have mentioned it. However, I do not want to duplicate it, but I want to shorten the main article (Iran-Iraq war), if the other editors accept.
Yes, I do know your intention is to move the material out of the main article. I see you are now mentioning this in your edit summaries; thanks for that. -- Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 23:37, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

I see you are still not adding the required attribution, as required under the terms of the CC-by-SA license. Please have a look at this edit summary as an example of how it is done. Please let me know if you still don't understand what to do or why we have to do it. Thanks, — Diannaa (talk) 14:44, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 5Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Morteza Avini, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page American. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Asian 10,000 Challenge inviteEdit

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:29, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

March Madness 2017Edit

G'day all, please be advised that throughout March 2017 the Military history Wikiproject is running its March Madness drive. This is a backlog drive that is focused on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • updating the project's currently listed A-class articles to ensure their ongoing compliance with the listed criteria
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various task force pages or other lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the military history scope will be considered eligible. More information can be found here for those that are interested, and members can sign up as participants at that page also.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 March and runs until 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2017, so please sign up now.

For the Milhist co-ordinators. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 07:24, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Questions Regarding Early Presidential Primaries (1940 and Back)Edit

I've been working collecting data on the results for the Democratic Presidential caucuses or state conventions that were held in earlier years, 1940 being the starting point given I was interested at the time in the Anti-Third Term movement that had sprung up then, and while I can't access all the data in question anyway (I'm using the New York Times as a source, but I'm not a subscriber and so can't look at the articles in detail), I've provided them in the talk pages. Having gotten down to 1928 now, however, I'm not certain how best to display the information given, and I'm not sure if there really is a precedent(s) for it given the operational differences between the Modern Primary and the more Archaic Primary of yesteryear. For example;
  1. In 1928 Al Smith clearly won the Democratic Presidential Preference Primary in Ohio over Senator Atlee Pomerene, but the latter was awarded the entirety of the delegation. The situation in question is in an article I provided on the talk page for the '28 Democratic Primaries, but when you have delegates not being bound or awarded based on the results of a Primary, should that be counted as a separate contest? How should we display that on a map? Should one be given preference?
  2. Depending on the year in question you either end up with a handful, none, or a whole slew of favorite-son candidates ready to represent State delegations, and these candidates technically have "won" delegates. However in some cases, like those I identified for the 1968 Republican nomination race, are far more than the infobox could possibly handle when combined with the actual candidates (even if we are just talking about candidates and favorite sons that won delegates, that would make 17). Should we give preference based on delegates won? On actual candidates vs. Favorite Sons? What about if they've withdrawn and endorsed a candidate? Should Favorite Sons be combined somehow (for map and infobox purposes) and explained separately in another section?
  3. In a number of the Presidential Primaries and even Caucuses I have encountered language that the delegates in question are officially unpledged or uninstructed, but have a strong preference or are generally understood for being for a certain candidate. Under those conditions, should those delegations be considered Unpledged, or should they be considered as being for the candidate? Should the votes of those delegations be included in a candidate's vote total?
These are the major questions at the moment. I'll also be asking a few others Presidential Elections Wikiproject as well to chime in, so if you have any ideas on how best I should proceed, I'd ask that the responses be put into Talk:Democratic Party presidential primaries, 1932. Thanks ahead of time. --Ariostos (talk) 03:15, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
@Ariostos: Unfortunately, I can not help you with the early Presidential primaries and your knowledge is far more than mine. Ex cues me.--Seyyed(t-c) 04:11, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

April 2018 Milhist Backlog DriveEdit

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

Happy NowruzEdit

 
This graphical design of mine, even though is not prestigious enough to represent Nowruz, but as a symbol of good faith for the beginning of a new friendship, is presented to you.

Happy Nowruz, the most accurate new year festival with respect to astronomical calculations!

I have decided that if a group of few users can be formed, together we start a new wikiproject, to make a tree-view of detailed content of all policies and guidelines for handy usage of ourselves (in Iran wikiproject) and the new users. Here is the proto-type of what I have in mind. I have always felt lack of any such tool for wikipedia contributors. If you were interested, I would be glad to see you in this wikiproject. --Shahreman (talk) 07:12, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
