@Themoother:@18.104.22.168:I've gone ahead and moved the paragraph comparing the amount given by each religion, seems out of place in the lead. I could not find the original survey on ICM website. The comparison of Islamic giving Vs total humanitarian giving may be problematic - isn't some of the aid given by Muslims humanitarian? Jonpatterns (talk) 10:56, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
User at 22.214.171.124 - Read WP:V and WP:RS. The lead summary needs to reflect the main article and match what the cites are saying, not what your "Shia sources" are telling you. If you have concerns about the summary, explain it on this talk page. RLoutfy (talk) 06:05, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
No edit war. Discuss your concern here. Mohamad Ariff, on p. 38, in para 3 states zakat recipients to be: the poor, new converts to Islam, slaves, etc. The quran.com provided Shahih International translation is controversial and has been criticized by scholars (we also can't use WP:Euphemism in wikipedia articles such as "bring hearts together"). Read the cite. RLoutfy (talk) 10:29, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
I have no issue with any of your edits other than the shia content which you are removing and changing. So leave this alone and there will be no issue. You have no right to re-word this section even though your change contradicts the source info.126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:17, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
@188.8.131.52 and other 120.18.*.* addresses, Which source does it contradict? Please provide cite and its pg number. Your edit to the lead disrespects wikipedia's WP:LEAD guidelines, because the lead is supposed to a summary of the main article, not new material from non-RS sources. The Sahih International translation provided by quran.com is also an unacceptable source. The wikipedia community has discussed quran.com as a source previously, and you can read the concerns about it here. RLoutfy (talk) 12:04, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
IP, please see WP:OWN. Edit summaries like "Shia section must stand as is. Editor may edit anything else" are severely frowned upon. You need to defend your changes on their own merits. --NeilNtalk to me 12:17, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
IP, I will break my edit into two. Take a look at the second edit that deals with Shia content only, and lets discuss your concerns. RLoutfy (talk) 12:19, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
Yes, now we are in agreement. You kept the well cited initial info and added what you wanted and i have no objection to that.184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:03, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
