score guide?

Hello. Can you tell me if there is any score guide? Guillotino (talk) 10:38, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

See the article scoring rubric here: Going to post this on your talk page as well. IbnPinker (talk) 20:27, 22 August 2021 (UTC)


Thanks for making me an editor here Alan. Can I create articles here now?-Raman (talk) 17:49, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

No problem. Glad to have you on board. You can submit ideas for articles but we will need to see more contributions from you, and then we will grant you that privilege. --Asmith (talk) 22:08, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Possibly incorrect permissions for new users

Hey ASmith. We talked via email a week or two back.

I'm getting around WikiIslam, and I noticed that the novice users page creation permissions appear to be set up incorrectly.

Recall WikiIslam:Sandbox,

You can also create sandboxes under your username such as User:Your username/Sandbox 1 if you expect yourself to be the only editor of the page.

I go to User:Graves/Sandbox_1, which I cannot edit. If I go to , I get

You do not have permission to create this page, for the following reason: You do not have permission to create new pages.

The same applies for UNcreated (yet) Wiki sandbox pages such as WikiIslam:Sandbox/Hello

HOWEVER, this isn't the case for,

I think this is a mis-confuration, so I let you know.

Graves (talk) 17:31, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this up. It needs to be fixed and I updated the public sandbox for now to make it clear that new users should request these pages to be made for them for now (once made, new users can edit these without admin approval). I made three of them for you at your preferred url:,,
Let me know if you need anything else. IbnPinker (talk) 18:59, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

Request to upload image to WikiIslam

I need to upload an image for an upcoming article. I cannot upload images directly to WikiIslam (no permissions), so I temporarily mirrored it here,

Can one of the admins upload it to WikiIslam? Thanks Graves (talk) 09:40, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

Done. The file name is Al-Bari-page.png . Do you have a link to the Discord? The Discord would be the best way to discuss such things imo.--Asmith (talk) 17:04, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

Hi ASmith. I'd be interested in joining the Discord server, but I don't have a link. Can you send one to the email address I registered with (to keep it discreet)? Thanks.

And thanks for uploading the image. Graves (talk) 18:13, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

Request to create an article

Hello. I would like to create an article on Spinning Wheel. Regarding the propaganda claim that Islamic science invented the spinning wheel. I have gathered many source that expose this claim. Can you start a blank article or a sandbox? I am also not able to make a sandbox. Guillotino (talk) 18:11, 4 August 2021 (UTC)

Hi Guillotino. Thank you for your idea, but after discussion with out team we came to the conclusion that this does not fit our scope. Please see our page WikiIslam:Scope and Article Relevance. This is a subject that would be better discussed on our Discord I think, do you have a link?--Asmith (talk) 06:44, 8 August 2021 (UTC)
No I dont have any Discord link. Can you give it? Guillotino (talk) 20:40, 14 August 2021 (UTC)

Can you create an article for Historical Errors? There are many errors. Guillotino (talk) 08:59, 22 August 2021 (UTC)

You can find the article here Historical Errors in the Qur'an. Thanks!--Asmith (talk) 20:52, 22 August 2021 (UTC)

We actually already have a section on historical errors in the scientific errors in the Quran page, so in that case this would lead to a lot duplication. I think it has always worked well on the scientific errors page because people refer to it for all the strong Quranic factual errors in one convenient page (whether natural world or history). Regarding the one about the Kaaba as a place of safety that was deleted, I think you were probably in any case right to remove it for others reasons, which is that one of the verses quoted, Q. 5:97 says "Allah made the Ka'ba, the Sacred House, an asylum of security [haram, forbidden] for men, as also the Sacred Months". Of course, no-one would consider this as a prophecy that the sacred months would never be violated, since that was already happening, so similarly with the Kaaba, Muslims would just say this was one of its appointed purposes, not a promise of divine protection nor a prophecy.Lightyears (talk) 21:48, 22 August 2021 (UTC)
I know it's there, but I think it might be useful to move it out to another page. That article is already big enough. I think the the best course is this: the historical errors should be summarized on the scientific errors page, and then a redirect should be placed to the historical errors page. That is the general Wikipedia standard operating procedure, I think it would fit here.--Asmith (talk) 00:12, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
Specifically I think we'd leave a few important examples of historical errors on the scientific errors page along w a summary of the section and then link at the top to the new page where we could proceed to list say dozens of historical errors. IbnPinker (talk) 00:17, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
Pending any other arguments I'll go ahead and implement this tomorrow. IbnPinker (talk) 00:19, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
That sounds a good approach. If I may recommend which ones to move from (rather than having also on) the sci errors page to the new historical errors page, it'd be the less interesting or famous ones which a visitor on the fence might more easily rationalise away as a mere absense of evidence thing or alternative meaning apologetics: Samaritans in ancient Egypt, John the Baptist's original name; Supernatural destruction of cities; Humans lived hundreds of years, Ancient mosque in Jerusalem. That would leave ones that people often mention as effecting them plus one or two that are quite new and need good exposure: Wall of iron; Mary part of the trinity; Mary and Miriam (popular and significant, though somewhat divides academics); Ezra; David invented coats of mail (very strong but quite new, needs more exposure); crucifixions in ancient Egypt (ditto); Singular Pharaoh; The three Noah's flood sections (a major topic - possibly could become even more concise on this page. The oven boiled is a pretty strong new point that needs the exposure). It's so useful to be able to just share one link rather than two for all types of factual errors (only a small percentage of people would click through to the main historical errors page). I do so regularly, as do countless others, so I'm glad the historical stuff is not being moved completely.Lightyears (talk) 10:24, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
Great points you made; implemented the change as you suggested. The pages can evolve on their own now and if we keep around 10 solid ones on the scientific errors page, that should suffice the sharing-one-link purpose. IbnPinker (talk) 12:43, 25 August 2021 (UTC)

Hadith templates guide

Hi, I replaced a couple of recent hard coded hadith refs with the templates. There is a page which details how to cite the various alternative hadith referencing systems available on quranx (such as the Dar-us-Salam system) using the templates. I can never remember which page it is at first so here's the link It seems there are lots of legacy al-Tirmidhi hard coded refs around the site (often with's erroneous book numbers) but it would take a long time to replace those with the templates. Lightyears (talk) 00:47, 16 October 2021 (UTC)

Thank you! Which pages had the hard-coded hadith references?--Asmith (talk) 01:12, 16 October 2021 (UTC)

No prob :) It was Scientific_Errors_in_the_Hadith It had a couple of new direct links to quranx and in order to link Ibn Majah and an Abu Dawud hadith using the Dar-us-Salam ref system (since the default USC index only has half the hadiths for that collection). Both can be linked using the templates so I changed those to illustrate. There are a dozen or so links to al Tirmidhi hadiths on still on the page and more throughout the site, especially the QHS pages (probably other hadith collections too besides Tirmidhi).

New article

You created a link in the Slavery in Islamic Law article to the Wikipedia article that has the url for, "Maria the Copt" but I believe you can create an article here on wikiIslam itself using the Quotations in Arabic from that Wikipedia article. I also observed that the Slavery in Islamic Law article is not online yet. Please do the needful. Thanks! -Raman (talk) 19:40, 27 October 2021 (UTC)

Iddah article

This may be interesting for you!-Mushrik (talk) 21:54, 10 December 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the link to the article @Mushrik. The 'Iddah in Li'an is missing in our article. But I want to first write down a separate article upon Li'an, and then add the 'Iddah in Li'an in the 'Iddah article. Lehrasap (talk) 09:38, 13 December 2021 (UTC)

New article

I want to create a new article, so please create a draft page I can use. Thanks!-Mushrik (talk) 18:26, 15 December 2021 (UTC)

@ Mushrik, I am also relatively new here. I have learnt that admins will soon create a separate sandbox with your name, where you could write your articles. Once you complete your article, then admins will create the new draft page and transfer your article there. In the meantime, you could create your article in the common Sandbox (as I did in my early days), and then notify the admins. Lehrasap (talk) 20:34, 15 December 2021 (UTC)

@Lehrasap, It says, "There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, or search the related logs, but you do not have permission to create this page." I am unable to create any Sandbox, whatever the combination.Mushrik (talk) 01:55, 16 December 2021 (UTC)
Mushrik I have created a sandbox for you here User:Mushrik/Sandbox--Asmith (talk) 03:57, 16 December 2021 (UTC)
Thanks!-Mushrik (talk) 17:41, 16 December 2021 (UTC)

Possibly Admins don't get the Notifications

I completed the first drafts of two more articles, and want the feedback from the admins:
1. Remarriage to Ex-Spouse after the Divorce
2. Blasphemy laws and the insult of Non-Muslims in Quran/Hadith

Créer et éditer des pages

Salut. Peux-tu me permettre de créer et d'éditer des pages car çame pénalise. En fait, j'aimerais être responsable de la partie française de wikiislam. Merci SOS (talk) 12:21, 24 August 2023 (UTC)

J'ai répondu par email--Asmith (talk) 01:53, 27 August 2023 (UTC)

Hello, are you currently reviewing updates please?

Hey ASmith - I hope you are well and have had a great holiday period! Other users previously reviewed and accepted/edited many of my updates but I've not had a response in about a month from them - so I was just checking if they were still coming through okay, as some have been here for about a month? Or if you're taking a break just let me know and I'll reach out to another editor. Cheers, CPO675

No problem at all! The work you do here is amazing btw :) So thank you

Keep up the good work! Also you can sign your name and time with 4 tildes--Asmith (talk) 05:27, 25 January 2024 (UTC)

Ahh cheers I'll try it out on this post. Also if you could give feedback on this article that would be amazing thanks. It's on the two seas verses, supposed miracle and how it's been interpretated (apologies if you've already been reviewing it). My URL shows CPO675 (talk) 12:51, 26 January 2024 (UTC)

Also on that page I'm not sure if you are able to add photos? Primarily those from the Islamic apologist site? One was originally shown on the former "Wikiislam two seas miracle archived page", . Specific photo link is: - or the picture of the "Encircling Ocean",  from In God's Eyes: The Sacrality of the Seas in the Islamic Cartographic Vision on P56 and P57 - though FYI I do not own the rights to those photos. So if not no worries at all, would I be able to get the page published as is please?

And also given the recent updates the 'Science and the Seven Earths' page, I think we should change it to 'Science and the Seven Earths and Heavens' (or something similar) - Do you agree? Cheers

CPO675 (talk) 23:04, 4 February 2024 (UTC)

Also I don't know if it's possible to make another sandbox page while the current one is being reviewed - as I've noticed a lot more verses for 'miracles and myths' in the Quran I can add to, though I don't want to keep extending the main scientific errors page, especially with what's probably among the weakest evidence on the whole page - so I think making a new page for this similar to the 'historical errors in the Quran page' has been used for further one's makes sense. We can also remove some of them on the main scientific errors page to reduce it's size. Please let me know what you think/if it's possible :) CPO675 (talk) 20:15, 10 June 2024 (UTC)

I can make you a new one. We've been working on the French Wiki, so I appreciate the patience. I'll go ahead and create your sandbox, also reviewing all of your recent edits now.--Asmith (talk) 01:37, 13 June 2024 (UTC)
