Welcome to islamicity discussion boards!

For a smooth running of the discussions, the board members are requested to abide by the following guidelines of conduct in the conference room.

1. We manage here an Islamic discussion board, thus all members are requested to maitain the deorum as per the standards of an Islamic cultural society. Any joke, or casual statement which the moderators find insensitive, may result in edition or deletion.

2. A generally pleasant demeanor and cordiality in language is requested during discussions.

3. Use of any profanity or obscenities of any kind within a post, even disguised with *asterisks or dashes etc will either lead to editing or deleting of the entire message.

4. Use of upper case and bold/large (font) is not permissible for the whole of the message body, however it may be used to add emphasis to words or phrases contained within your message.

5. The subject of your message should be in accordance with the theme of the forum. (if the text is found irrelevant to the theme, it may be deleted).We also request you to avoid straying from the 'topic' of discussion.

6. Please stay within the thread while answering to a former response in the existing threads. Creating new threads to address someone on a topic which is already being discussed in a pre existing thread, rolls the screen unnecessarily and pushes the older ongoing discussions down the list and below the display window.

7. We request you to always choose a topic for your message, and take care that it is not obscene, provocative or insolent.

8. Spamming of any kind is not allowed. Any response to spammers will be deleted along with the spam. This includes multiple copies (2 or more) of one message in one and/or many forums. (if this behavior is spotted several times, by the same user we may remove ALL the copies of that message, including all the responses below them).

9. Posting several messages at random and not responding to the generated questions or dialogues following the original posts may also be considered as spamming.

10. We will not tolerate personal attacks on participants from ANY Community (personal attacks are defined as comments that reflect upon the person instead of their opinion). Furthermore, any insults intended to ANY religion or ANY prophet of God, or ANY holy scripture shall be removed.

11. Slanderous, defamatory, obscene, indecent, lewd, pornographic, violent, abusive, insulting, threatening and harassing comments are not tolerated. ALL comments by the person who adopts such a manner may be removed and the person will lose the privilege of participating in the forums in future. We will try to block attempts from the same person to sign up with a different name as well.

12. Materials that are explicit in nature, pertaining to sexuality will not be tolerated - even when the purpose is genuine.  

13. We request you not to post URLs of sites the sole existence of which is to slander a religion or spread lies about it.

14. Graphic materials will not be entertained. Members can post URLs to such texts, however, all such texts should go with a forward warning the readers about the nature of the material. URLs posted without warning shall be removed.

15. Participating in discussions with multiple user names to make it appear as these are different individuals and not one(and the same) person, will be regarded as deceit and such user names will be blocked permanently. (this does not deny the privileges to maintain anonymity for genuine reasons).

16. We don't allow impersonation of other participants or such accounts will be removed.

17. Screen names that are obscene or slanderous shall be denied access permanently.

18. If any board member is found inadequate in observing any of the above rules, he/she may be prompted once, twice or thrice by the moderators before denying him/her all access to discussion boards in future.

19.Your participation in discussion forums is a privilege and not a right. "Free Speech" here means that you don't pay for speaking your mind as opposed to any other belief(s) you might have. We reserve the right to remove any comment or comments that are not in line with the above rules, without giving reasons, notifications or explanations to anyone.

We wish everybody a pleasant stay and an enriching experience on these forums.


Rasul Allah (sallah llahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "Whoever knows himself, knows his Lord" and whoever knows his Lord has been given His gnosis and nearness.
