Things you can do

Sexual slavery in Islam

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)

Linking non-Muslim to Kafir

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)
VR: It looks as non-neutral as linking laicist, atheist, irreligious, agnostic or Muslim to Infidel. -- MarioGom ( talk) 19:19, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

We have IslamWiki!!!

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 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 ?

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 the most active wikipedia. Even lay Muslims can be contributors and editors. Myself I'm contributor and editor of 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 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)

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 Wikiquote

  • 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.

Update to peer review page

Hi all, I've boldly updated your project's peer review page ( Wikipedia:WikiProject Islam/Peer review) by updating the instructions and archiving old reviews.

The new instructions use Wikipedia's general peer review process ( WP:PR) to list peer reviews. Your project's reviews are still able to be listed on your local page too.

The benefits of this change is that review requests will get seen by a wider audience and are likely to be attended to in a more timely way (many WikiProject peer reviews remain unanswered after years). The Wikipedia peer review process is also more maintained than most WikiProjects, and this may help save time for your active members.

I've done this boldly as it seems your peer review page is pretty inactive and I am working through around 90 such similar peer review pages. Please feel free to discuss below - please ping me ({{ u|Tom (LT)}}) in your response.

Cheers and hope you are well, Tom (LT) ( talk) 23:07, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
