Mission objectives[edit]

Ismaili flag.svg

This is a project aimed at increasing the quality of the articles related to the Shi'a Islam, elevating the articles to "Good article" standard, and then all the way to "Featured article" standard. Shi'a We do this by:

  • Making sure all statments are sourced using the "<ref>source</ref>" model
  • Being well versed with WP:NPOV. This means that no contentious statments should be stated as facts, and that minority views should not be given undue weight.
  • Using the most official sources available
  • <insert>

As of 2006-08-13, we have 0 (Zero) article in the "Good article" standard and 0 (zero) in the "Featured article" standard.

{{WikiProject Islam|class=|importance=|Shi'a-Islam=yes|Shi'a-Islam-importance=}} may be added to the top of the talk pages of the article relevant to this project. This will make them appear on the Category:Shi'a Islam task force articles.
