Things you can do

Sexual slavery in IslamEdit

I would be grateful if some people with subject knowledge could assess the sweeping edits currently being done to that article. I'm getting the impression that this is the wholesale replacement of one interpretation with another, based on very selective sources, but I simply don't know the subject area. In any case I suspect these big deletes/replacements need some talk page discussion before being implemented. - Also notified WikiProject Women's History. --Elmidae (talk · contribs)

Requested page moveEdit

There is currently a requested page move at Talk:Sexual_slavery_in_Islam#Requested_move_30_August_2020, where it is proposed that "Sexual slavery in Islam" be moved to "Concubinage in Islam".

I posted this once above, but that time was wasn't a formal page move request. This one will actually be closed by an admin. Your participation is appreciated.VR talk 00:55, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Linking non-Muslim to KafirEdit

A user has been going around linking occurrences of "non-Muslim" to Kafir.[1] That seems ill advised as kufr has more to do with theology and kafir is at present considered a pejorative. What do others think? VR talk 14:07, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Vice regent, I think it depends on the context. In the case you linked the topic is related to the juridical status of non Muslims anyway, so it's not totally irrelevant. In this particular case, I don't have any clear opinion either way. HaEr48 (talk) 16:34, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

We have IslamWiki!!!Edit

Assalamu alaikum,

I'm Sunni Muslim from Bucharest, Romania. I have found our own Islamic Wikipedia where we can contribute and edite articles about Islam so we can show to non-Muslims what view and opinion represent us and which not and so we can show that Wikiislam is fake Islamic wikipedia and it is anti-Islamic in the same time. And franqly, I have found www.islamwiki.org and over there only Muslims from al branches of Islam are allowed to be users, contributors and editors, but non-Muslims are not allowed to write anything about Islam, because they don't know Islam but only we know. They do what they do so they can give discredit and invalidity to Islam and they want also to defame Muslim Ummah and mislead us at the best of their ability.

Is anyone interested to be contributor and editor of www.islamwiki.org ?

P.S. Even Bahais are allowed to be contributors and editors of IslamWiki because Bahais are another branch of Islam as far as I know. Let's make www.islamwiki.org the most active wikipedia. Even lay Muslims can be contributors and editors. Myself I'm contributor and editor of wwww.islamwiki.org and I'm planning on making extremely long article about Banu Qurayza and I wanna present a long history of Banu Qurayza in such that non-Muslims will be impossible for them to ultimately refute my article. Because, I wanna prove that Muslim and the Holy Prophet did made contract with Banu Qurayza and Banu Qurayza betrayed us and violated the contract, and that's why it happen "genocide" over there. And I need also someone who can verify my article and check my English Grammar and Literature before I publish online the article. Also, I need someone who can tell me what grammatical and literature mistakes I have done before posting the article so I can post it online. I need also Muslims who wishes to make continuos articles and make www.islamwiki.org very active. Plus, we have a section called "counter arguments" where we can ultimately refute and debunk that fake Islamic Encyclopedia named Wikiislam which spread propaganda and lies about Islam and prove that it is also fake Islamic Encyclopedia.

May God reward you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alex Abood (talkcontribs) 07:29, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

Cleavage (breasts)Edit

In the article I have some Islamic interpetation (including a verse from the Quran, though I think there are two verses that address the subject), but I feel that part to be rather insufficient. In my research I have come across terms like haya, awrah, juyub, khimar, jilbab and mahram. I am under the impression that these terms may be significant in understanding or explaining the Islamic point of view regarding exposure of the cleavage of women's breasts, which is a popular Western practice.

Please, help me to find reliable online sources that I can use, and, if possible, explain the matter to me (here, in the article talk or my user talk) so I can frame it appropriately. Aditya(talkcontribs) 06:12, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

Articles on Islam in WikiquoteEdit

  • This is not about WP but about Wikiquote (well in some way it is because WQ is linked in most WP articles on the subject), however comments by neutral users that are familiar with Islam in a current discussion in Wikimedia are needed, and I don't know a better place to found them that here.
