Islam Wiki is one of the largest and most successful Islam wikis. This page lists some of the rules and guidelines that you should follow when editing in order for this wiki to become better!

General Guidelines

  • Be civil to other users at all times and listen to the moderators and admins, they're here for a reason.
  • Decent edit summaries and clear and transparent explanations are universally appreciated. Other editors need to understand your process, and it also helps moderators to understand what you did. Please state what you changed and why. If the explanation is too long, add more on the talk page.
  • Assume good faith, try to consider what the person on the other end of a discussion is thinking, a rational being who is trying to positively contribute to the project — unless you have firm, solid, and objective proof to the contrary. Merely disagreeing with you is no such proof.
  • No personal attacks. Don't write that the user is an idiot, or insult them. Instead, explain what they did wrong, why it is wrong, and how to fix it. If possible, fix it yourself.
  • Be graceful: Be liberal in what you accept, be conservative in what you do. Try to accommodate other people's quirks the best you can, but try to be as polite, solid and as straightforward as possible.
  • Sign your posts on talk pages by using ~~~~ which gets replaced by your username and timestamp when you hit submit. But don't sign on mainspace articles.
  • Use the preview button; it prevents edit conflicts.

Manual of Style

  • Know about the topic when updating articles, we don't want to spread false information about Islam, as long as you know what you're doing than you are fine.
  • No plagiarizing when you are adding content, please do not copy and paste information from other wikis like Wikipedia, WikiIslam, etc. You may GET information from those wikis but you MUST credit them and do NOT copy and paste the information.
  • Do NOT vandalize articles as that will lead to a ban/block.
  • Use English when editing and adding content, it is fine if you include words that are in different languages but remember to include a transliteration and translation.
  • Write in an Islamic point of view ALL the time as this is an Islam Wiki, for example this sentence: "Islamic view of Jesus" should be "Isa" or "Jesus".
  • Articles should be in a similar arrangement ALL the time, please remember this when adding topics or articles.
  • No pictures of prophets or God EVER as this is a Muslim wiki.
