Fair use rationale for Image:ICARDA logo.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:ICARDA logo.JPG. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. --EoL talk 17:56, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:ICARDA logo.JPG[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:ICARDA logo.JPG. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:44, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Talk related to Eid al Adha.[edit]

I have seen you reverting here i think we should use both the reference supporting for 3 days as well as 4 days and phrase it accordingly as they would be appropriate in this case as we have supporting references for both.
If you get specific that would be wrong because the point of 4 day contradict the statement in the 2nd paragraph see bellow:

Eid al-Adha is the latter of the two Eid holidays, the former being Eid al-Fitr. The basis for the Eid al-Adha comes from the 196th verse of the 2nd sura of the Quran.[5] The word "Eid" appears once in the 5th sura of the Quran, with the meaning "solemn festival".[6] The 3 days and 2 nights of Eid al-Adha are celebrated annually on the 10th, 11th and 12th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the twelfth and last month of the lunar Islamic calendar. In the international Gregorian calendar, the dates vary from year to year, drifting approximately 11 days earlier each year.

And its better to use both. We also can not go on approval of any admin we only go on the supporting references. Thanks --Ibrahim ebi (talk) 08:10, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

I removed the contradicting details (I had forgotten to sign in). I prefer not to mention the two durations as there are many more references stating that it is four days. However, if you have a reference that states where it is celebrated as three days we could mention it specifically for that location and preferably not in the introduction. We could also add a table showing the countries and the official days off work for each (I read that some countries only have 1 day holiday) but again we would need references for each.

Actually there is one more and i think you should correct that one too in the third paragraph
Like Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha begins with a Sunnah prayer of two rakats followed by a sermon (khuṭbah). Eid al-Adha celebrations start after the descent of the Hajj from Mount Arafat, a hill east of Mecca. Ritual observance of the holiday lasts until sunset of the 12th day of Dhu al-Hijjah.[7] Eid sacrifice may take place until sunset on the 13th day of Dhu al-Hijjah.[8] The days of Eid have been singled out in the Hadith as "days of remembrance". The days of Tashriq are from the Fajr prayer of the 9th of Dhul Hijjah up to the Asr prayer of the 13th of Dhul Hijjah (5 days and 4 nights). This equals 23 prayers: 5 on the 9th-12th, which equal 20, and 3 on the 13th.[9]
Hmm i dont have problem with the holidays if you mention it clearly in the article.
Frankly I was referring to Sura al-Baqarah verse 203 as here
And remember Allah during [specific] numbered days. Then whoever hastens [his departure] in two days - there is no sin upon him; and whoever delays [until the third] - there is no sin upon him - for him who fears Allah . And fear Allah and know that unto Him you will be gathered.[Sura al-Baqarah verse 203] as it describes the appointed days (Tashriq).
Quran in English by M.Yousuf Ali page 80. or you can check any other translation by your self.
I think you should specify that the Holidays last for 4 days as here This is a four-day public holiday in Muslim countries. as the current version looks like the days of tashriq is of specific 3 days exclusive of the Eid day which is not the case.
