A problem with this page is that a lot of Arabic words are given Persian-langauge style transcriptions into the Latin alphabet. They should be given Arabic-language transcriptions, acompanied by Arabic script where relevant.

Following observation is pested here for general information and evaluation for an unbiased approach

This image is a textbook example of replaceable fair use, since anybody could take a photo of the shrine and publish it under a free license. If you are the Flickr user and have taken the photo yourself, there's no need for a fair use claim; please see donating copyrighted material, and e-mail the Wikipedia mailing list to verify its copyright status. If not, I am afraid Wikipedia can't use the file. Unless the copyright status of the image is verified, I am going to speedily delete it due to a clearly invalid fair use claim - contrary to what the notice says, the photo is not a "unique historic image". - Mike Rosoft (talk) 08:59, 29 December 2013 (UTC) (talk) 07:53, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Pic of Shrine Sharif Razi has been removed, see the statement: You haven't answered my questions, so I have removed the picture from the article Sharif Razi, and will delete it within a few days. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 09:07, 31 December 2013 (UTC)Nannadeem (talk) 11:44, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Because the photo is under a clearly invalid fair use claim! You claim that the image is a unique historic photo, which is not the case. (Please read messages on your talk page.) And, for goodness's sake, stop claiming that I take these actions because of my personal prejudice. I have explained that much on your talk page, too (in a message which you have conveniently removed). - Mike Rosoft (talk) 16:31, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

All academic encyclopedias I've checked use this version. e.g:

  1. Brill's Encyclopedia of Islam, 2nd ed: [1]
  2. The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Islamic World, "Shīʿī Islam" ("This was also the period of other renowned Shīʿī scholars, such as al-Sharīf al-Rāḍī (d. 1015)")
  3. Medieval Islamic Civilization: An Encyclopedia (Routledge), "Ali ibn Abi Talib" ("The chief vehicle of ‘Ali’s intellectual legacy is the Nahj al-Balagha, a text of sermons, letters, and aphorisms that was compiled by al-Sharif al-Radi (d. 1016)" Eperoton (talk) 12:52, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
