Important summary for the future[edit]

The article is permanently semi-protected. There have been coordinated off-wiki attacks on the article, as well as long term abuse by one or more block-evading individuals editing via IP edits and/or sockpuppet accounts. Such edits should be dealt with as WP:Revert, block, ignore, including edits to this talk page.

  • There is no credible dispute that multiple Reliable Sources have described image File:Maome.jpg as Muhammad prohibiting Nasī’ / prohibiting intercalation. Several such sources are listed in the Archive 3 RFC, and additional sources were listed in the more recent RFC.
  • There is no credible dispute that multiple Reliable Sources have used this image for the purpose of illustrating this topic.
  • At one point the image caption described this as happening at the Farewell Sermon. The sources using this image generally do not make that claim. While it is believed Muhammad prohibited intercalation at the Farewell Sermon, we do not know whether he did so at multiple times and places. The image caption should not make claims about the time or place.
  • Accuracy of the image contents: Photographs did not exist fourteen hundred years ago. This image is obviously an artist's attempt to depict or recreate events of the era. Was Muhammad wearing a blue robe when he said these words? Maybe, maybe not. Was he standing at the top of stairs when he said these words? Maybe, maybe not. It is undisputed that Reliable Sources consider this image suitable for illustrating this topic. Anyone viewing the image will immediately know it's an artist's impression of the event. Readers know that details of image do not have photographic-accuracy.
  • Exactly zero time should be wasted engaging long term block-evading individuals simply demanding that Images of Muhammad be removed.
  • Exactly zero time should be wasted engaging attempts to attack the expert-judgement of multiple Reliable Sources.
  • Exactly zero time should be wasted engaging attempts to attack incidental details an artist's depiction.
  • Exactly zero time should be wasted engaging any other desperate excuses, when those excuses are clearly just another ploy for removing images of Muhammad in general. Alsee (talk) 09:58, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

The current Islamic year is[edit]

This paragraph will constantly need to be updated and may not be indicated (see MOS:EPHEMERAL, MOS:REALTIME). WP:ASOF has a template that could remind that the paragraph needs to be updated through categories, but I doubt that this is necessary here... The external links section also already has links to calendar calculators, etc. —PaleoNeonate – 18:50, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Maybe that there also is a way to use one of the age templates to automatically update both values... —PaleoNeonate – 18:52, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
