There are many templates in use in Islam Wiki; these are only a subset, representing some of the most important and commonly used ones on FANDOM (Wikia). If you feel that a template belongs on this page, please contact the admins and they may add it.

  • Category:Templates will cover ALL templates in the wiki including ones listed on this page.

What are Templates?

Wiki templates provide a means to insert the same content over and over in different (or the same) pages. This saves editors the hassle of duplicating the same text again and again, and also helps ensure consistency.

Templates are generally shown with the format required to use the template (e.g. {{delete}}). Clicking the template name takes you to the template's page, where you can see what it looks like and how it is used.

Detailed Instructions on the Usage of Each Template Should Exist on:

  1. A subpage using {{documentation}}; or
  2. The template page itself (inside "noinclude" tags); or
  3. The template's talk page.

For more info on FANDOM (Wikia) templates, see w:Help:Templates.

Article Management Templates

Nominate an Article for Deletion

{{delete|<reason>|<user = user>}}

  • Add this to an article to nominate it for deletion. It will add the article to Category:Candidates for deletion. If a moderator, admin, or beuarecrat approves than it will be deleted.

Disambiguation Articles

{{disambig|<phrase>|<refers to>}}

  • If you have several articles that have similar or identical names, you may wish to create a "disambiguation" page at the main article name, with the articles taking an extra phrase in brackets afterwards. For example:
The Prince <-- disambiguation page, with links to:
The Prince (frog)
The Prince (human)
  • Using {{disambig}} marks an article as a disambiguation page by adding a banner to the article and categorizing it under Category:Disambiguations. Add links to the various articles under the banner.
  • For more information, see w:Help:Disambiguation.

Stub Articles


  • These articles are very short, or don't have all the information they need.
  • Using {{Stub}} marks the article with a banner and adds it to Category:Stubs.

Cleanup Pages


  • These pages need to be cleaned up.
    • Like they need to be reorganized, they have a lot of grammar errors or do not follow the Wiki's Manual of Style.
  • Using {{Cleanup}} marks the article with a banner and adds it to Category:Pages requiring cleanup.

General wiki templates

T is for Template


  • This template allows you to show example template code (with a link to the templates) without inserting the template itself.
    • It is an alternative to writing it out by hand.

C is for Category


  • This template easily links to a category in a page, without adding the page to the category and hidng the Category: namespace.
    • It is an alternative to writing it out by hand like :Category:category.

U is for user


  • This template easily links to a user's page, without writing out the whole thing to hide the User: namespace.

Where You May Find More Templates

  • Templates Wiki
  • Templates from Wikipedia may be copied with the proper acknowledgment, but some need tweaking to work properly on FANDOM, so it would be preferred to use a FANDOM version if possible.
  • You may copy templates from other Fandoms or Wikias but remember to credit them.
