Contribute Rules - IslamiCity

IslamiCity is one of the largest English Islamic Websites that features articles on a wide range of topics. (Religion, Interfaith, Social, Political, Humor, Science, Family, Youth, etc).

We accept article submissions from anyone who can add relevant content to our pages. We also accept articles that have been published previously.

Some simple rules:

1. We do not have any restrictions on the length of the article, but please keep in mind, in an environment of information overload, short is sweet. Under a 1,000 words is a good guideline.

2. Formatting:

  • Please write your article in a Word document, with no fancy formatting or fonts. Simple Times New Roman 12pt. font, or whatever the default is on your computer, is fine.
  • Include a line break after each paragraph
  • Do not indent.
  • Do not use HTML tags in your piece. If you would like to submit your piece already formatted in HTML, send us an HTML document using Microsoft FrontPage.

3. Please include a short (30-60 words) bio with your piece, and include and email address to which you would like to have correspondence sent. If you have a website, please include that as well.

4. Please provide link to sources. If you make a statement that isn't common knowledge, especially statistics, please provide links for substantiation.

5. Please title your submission. We may decide to change it at publication, but at least we'll have something off which we can work.

6. Please send your article as an attachment to [email protected] . Feel free to also paste your text into the body of the email, but this is optional.

7. Please note IslamiCity does not pay for most submitted articles.

8. If your submission is not published, please don't stop sending. Acceptance depends on a variety of factors, including timeliness, style, and any number of editorial requirements of the moment that may not necessarily reflect on your writing ability.

9. You will be notified when your article is published.

    Everything under IslamiCity is categorized under the major hubs you see in this panel. Due to overwhelming content, each of these hubs can be considered a home page of its own.

    Faith is where the tenets, pillars and spiruality related content is found.

    Science section features not just Science but also Nature and Technology. This section is more for the technologically minded.

    World section is for the News Buds. It covers day to day World Affairs, Politics & News.

    Life section is all about Society, Art, Culture, History, Sports, Food, Music and much more.

    Values section on the other hand is very special. We created it for only one thing in mind; to create a peaceful corner that features just inspiring and uplifting material, focused around Universal Values to be reflect upon -- at a time never needed more desperately than now

  6. Inspiring Themes

    We feature each theme with a beautiful image. Click on these beautiful images & start exploring the theme/value behind it.
