Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Request for input in discussion forum[edit]

Given the closely linked subjects of the various religion, mythology, and philosophy groups, it seems to me that we might benefit from having some sort of regular topical discussion forum to discuss the relevant content. I have put together the beginnings of an outline for such discussion at Wikipedia:WikiProject Religion/2011 meeting, and would very much appreciate the input of any interested editors. I am thinking that it might run over two months, the first of which would be to bring forward and discuss the current state of the content, and the second for perhaps some more focused discussion on what, if any, specific efforts might be taken in the near future. Any and all input is more than welcome. John Carter (talk)

Help required[edit]

I would like help improving this article, if anyone can spare the time.
Thank you. :-) --

Siyyid Kazim picture[edit]

I just want to say that the picture you have in the article Siyyid Kazim seems to be one from the Bab, and please, remove it if you aren't sure it is from Siyyid Kazim. We all know wikipedia wants to have verifiable content, have Wikipedia verify that picture? We really don't want Baha'is seeing Bab's picture when they want to learn more about Siyyid Kazim's life, (is enough avoiding searching for the Bab in Wikipedia to don't see the picture). As an individual I ask Wikipedia to give me information I can trust on.

Arabic original of Live like Ali, die like Hussein?[edit]

I've seen this phrase used in English amongst Shia (and made a small stub mentioning in), but I'm having trouble finding how it's originally phrased/spelled in Arabic. Any ideas? Not just the literal translation, but the saying itself before it was translated to English. Thanks! MatthewVanitas (talk)

IMPORTANT: Muhammad FA status suggestion[edit]

(Made mistake of nominating without discussion on talk page, so removed what I earlier wrote here; apologies). I added a message on Talk:Muhammad suggesting nominating page on Muhammad for FA status. Would anyone from Wikiproject Islam be willing to contribute? Please see Talk:Muhammad#IMPORTANT: Featured article nomination suggestion for justification and why it fits Wikipedia:Featured article criteria. Thank you! Akhi666 18:30, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Tahera Ahmad[edit]

Hi there folks, I could use help improving this article. It is currently facing deletion and I think it's mainly because I'm not the strongest writer. If anyone here would mind helping flesh out the article? I would appreciate it if you would help only and not comment at the afd unless you truly feel it needs deleted so as to avoid canvassing concerns. I've collected several sources to show that I believe this woman has done notable things and if communicated properly would help others see what I saw. Thanks again.

As one of the priciples of all the Muslims, Ma'ad is not well elaborated on WP. Please help to expand it.--Salman mahdi (talk) 04:57, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Islamic State (ISIS)[edit]

This WikiProject was recently created and I'm trying to determine if there is any level of interest in it. Right now, this WikiProject consists of just one editor. I'm notifying several related WikiProjects in order to gauge whether there is sufficient interest in this one that it should be allowed to grow or be deleted. Thank you. Liz Read!

Hi can anyone do a review of the article, Al-Masjid an-Nabawi? RRD13 দেবজ্যোতি (talk) 10:40, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Muslim Prayer category[edit]

Hello, I recently reviewed and accepted the article Jawshan Kabir. I wanted to add it to a Muslim Prayer category, but I couldn't find one. Is there one? If so, could someone point me in the right direction? If not, perhaps one should be created? Thanks!

Found it! Sorry all! Happy Squirrel (talk) 15:56, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Vive Charlie[edit]

I don't know if people here are aware of this new article, but this website, which is not related to Charlie Hedbo, is involved in what appears to be an attempt to enrage Muslim opinion in the UK, an exhibition of cartoons of Muhammad, which it is co-hosting along with Sharia Watch and the fringe far-right party Liberty GB.[1] The article begins "A group of MPs are calling for an investigation into a far-right website described as a training manual for anti-Muslim paramilitaries – amid fears that an upcoming exhibition of cartoons of the prophet Muhammad in London is designed to incite Islamist violence."
