This page lists tasks that need to be done. Some of the tasks listed below may be out-dated and no longer suitable for the site. So please let us know of what tasks may interest you before you begin work on them. If you have any questions about a certain task, please ask on the talk page.



  1. Rewrite the sparse commentary on Scientific errors in the Qur'an, getting rid of the poor English, poor attempts at humor and generally unprofessional and arrogant approach
  2. Rewrite and expand Good stuff in the Quran (removing it from the Humor category) or open a new article titled Good Teachings in the Quran?, refuting all of the "positives". E.g. "Give charity" is limited to Muslims only, "Be good to family" is limited to Muslim family members, "Don't be racist" Muhammad refers to blacks as Raisin heads, etc.
  3. Add more references for the statements made in Diacritical Marks of the Qur'an.
  4. Need a "Responses to Apologetics" section for Qur'an and Semen Production (Qur'an 86:7) [1] (see bottom)

Jihad and Violence

  1. The Story of Umm Qirfa: needs additional references from the original sources used in the comic. Contact arabic language people and ask them to translate the arabic text used in the comic strip. Deal with this rebuttal [2] in a "Responses to Apologetics" section.
  2. Armenian Genocide
  3. Islam and Violence - Core article following the structure of other core articles. To include terrorism and other violence in Islam.
  4. Muhammad's Raids and Battles
  5. The Meaning of Qatal - Possible rewrite to include more information. Useful links: [3], [4].
  6. Split Images_of_Jihad_(Indonesia) and other image pages into sub-pages so it loads only 10-15 images per page (better server load)

Women's Rights and Issues

  1. List of Wives and Concubines of Muhammad - use primary sources for references (hadith etc), and if possible look for other wives as well in all available sources including the ones cited for this article. Look for any other articles mentioning the wives. Double check the list for accuracy and see if we missed any names. We want all possible historical records for these wives that support that they were his wives.
  2. Add additional thighing evidence from [5] - fatwa 41409
  3. Add info on marital rape to Rape. e.g. [6]. Gather relevant hadiths or fatwas (wife must have sex or angels will curse her, etc)
  4. Khadijah - Rewrite and expand. Include the fact that Muslims often try to use her high social standing as "proof" that women are equal in Islam. What they neglect to explain is that she was a "great businesswoman and independent woman"[7] BEFORE Islam (during the so-called "Period of Ignorance- Jahiliyah) and you cannot find any examples of successful women AFTER Islam during Muhammad's lifetime. Useful links: [8]
  5. Polygamy in Islam - Needs a complete rewrite to adhere to our policies and guidelines. Include information from the ScienceDaily article on the talk page
  6. Add any possible victims from [9] to : Honor Related Violence
  7. Add stuff from Talk:Rape in Islam to Rape in Islam, for the meaning of 'right hand'.
  8. Expand Adultery is permitted in Islam with any relevant hadiths/info from this post.
  9. Aisha and Puberty - Add some of the info from here
  10. Muhammad's Companions and Pedophilia - add section about Fatima's marriage to Ali, aged 9-11

Quran, Hadith and Scholars

  1. Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Islamic Silliness - Possible additions [10]
  2. List of Fabricated Hadith - Expand on the section dealing with Muhammad's Farewell Sermon, thus creating a stand alone article. Then replace the existing text with a summary of the new article and redirect links where appropriate.
  3. Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Wives and Concubines of Muhammad - Add all the tabari quotes
  4. Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Muhammad the Warmonger has more sources concerning the Banu Qurayza than our Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Banu Qurayza page. The QHS page for Banu Qurayza should be the page that contains all available sources concerning them, while the sub-section in "Muhammad the Warmonger" should only be a summary of sources with our "main article" template added.
  5. Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Sexuality - Add more hadiths relating to sex or sexual issues in this life and afterlife (virgins, sexual power of men in heaven etc).
  6. Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Muhammad the Mass Murderer: add more assassinations
  7. Qur'an,_Hadith_and_Scholars:Muhammad - fix/rename titles of linked pages from "names" to nouns, e.g. Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Muhammad the Cross-Dresser‎, change to Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Muhammad and Cross-Dressing, fix links in QHS template too.
  8. Qur'an,_Hadith_and_Scholars:Aisha#Fatwas - Add additional hadiths linked in Fatwa box [11]. So "See 12, 13, 14" on our page ... should all be added on the page


  1. Islam - Rewrite existing article in a similar vein to Wikipedia's article. This is an important article because it is linked on almost every page. The existing content can be moved, deleted or merged with other pages.
  2. Use more hadiths from here [12] to add to 72 virgins and any other article
  3. See: Talk:Honor Related Violence (Pakistan)
  4. See: Talk:Islam and Freedom of Speech (Links)
  5. See: Talk:Muslim Statistics
  6. Muslim Conspiracy Theories - This claim ([13], [14]) about Michael Jackson's death (the theory in general) may deserve its own section. Check the net to see how widespread it is.
  7. Create categories for every country found here. Then add categories to all relevant pages
  8. Zakat - Expand this stub using the info on Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Zakat, including real-world examples on Islamic charity being denied to non-Muslims and being used to fund jihad [15] (paragraph above conclusion), [16]
  9. Islam and Freedom of Speech - Keeping the basic article there, create separate pages for the "In the Modern World" sections (e.g. Muhammad Cartoons Controversy, Nigeria and the Miss World Pageant etc.), adding/updating with extra information where needed
  10. Allah the Polytheist - Responses by D335, Shapur II, Anthony Rogers, and Sam Shamoun to Osama Abdallah's apologetics can be found here. Try to somehow incorporate all the info into the article. If this is not possible, then create a "Responses to Apologetics" section.
  11. Islam - incomplete page
  12. Quotations on Islam from Muslims - Currently the page is in a terrible state. Needs a complete overhaul. The page should resemble Quotations on Islam from the Noteworthy without the "short bio" sections etc. that are there now. The quotes also need to be updated (there are so much more shocking quotes available today).
  13. Punishments - Ideally each type of punishment should have a general article and a QHS page, together with its own hub page. For example the content from Amputation should be moved to another title, e.g. Amputation in Islam, freeing that page to serve as a "hub". Then the the QHS quotes should be moved to Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Amputation. After this is done, the Amputation in Islam page should be expanded to include information that is gained from the quotes and to respond to the dishonest apologetics etc.
  14. Literature on Islam - Similar to the "Notable Former Muslims" task. Create pages for each linked book.
  15. Notable Former Muslims - Just as much "new content" as it is an Expansion/Improvement. Create short but concise informational stubs on each notable former Muslim to replace the out-going links we have in that page at the moment. Who they are and brief info on their apostasy. The information for this should already be available in the existing links which can serve as an "External Link" in the new pages.
  16. Funding of Islam, Moderate Islam & Rule of Islamic law; articles are incomplete and may need to be rewritten.
  17. Islam and Freedom of Speech - Add section on recent Pakistani Blasphemy cases and murders
  18. Rewrite Islamophobia, some very good points raised here: Anglophobia or Islamophobia & here: How the Term "Islamophobia" Got Shoved Down Your Throat. Analyze the Runnymede's definition of the term
  19. Expand and rewrite Historical Persecution of Non-Muslims
  20. Rewrite Lying for Islam (taqiyya). Make it not about "taqiyya", but lying in general according to Islam. Emphasize the fact that lying for Islam is generally referred to as Taqiyya but is not limited to that strict definition. See this to get an idea of what is required
  21. Update Muhammad and the violation of the Qur'an and add if needed from the new part 2
  22. Al-Azhar fatwa on adult suckling - misses out some stuff (workplace, 5 times etc), see :[17] and research other sites too. Also rewrite to look better.
  23. Overhaul Allah: I sent Jibreel to blow into Mary's Vagina to include BOTH interpretations of the verses in question - if you use only the Quran to understand then it says Allah ("We") blew into Mary to conceived Isa - this can be for the Quran-only Muslims. If you use the tafsirs then they say it was Jibreel. Also include supporting Tafsir's to back up what Kathir says; Jalalayn and Ibn Abbas.
  24. Victim of Islam
  25. Check if hadith pages are back on the CMJE site and then restore if they are ([18])
  26. Replace Broken link fixes for old usc MSA website --> Link search (gives error after 500 links, total links: 1000) - Use text search and replace beginning part of URL with new URL
  27. See: Talk:Quotations on Islam from the Noteworthy
  28. Necrophilia, get the original sources (need Arabic help) Other links: check and add where appropriate or make new article. Additional info: jtf (check video), [19], [20], FFI, MEMRI, video 1:40
  29. Nikah 1, 2, 3. Include definition from Lane's Lexicon (the actual PDF not just the summary)
  30. Ahmadiyya - add criticism of how they continue to be apologists for mainstream Islam by passing off distinctly Ahmadiyya beliefs as Islamic ones, e.g.: [21], [22]

Difficult tasks

  1. - add everything from here, if sources can be attributed

Create Content

  1. Made Victorious Through Terror - links: [23],
  2. Quran Identifies the Sex of the Worker Ant - links: [24],
  3. Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:72 Virgins - Gather all sources from 72 Virgins and related pages
  4. Breastfeeding in the Qur'an - links: [25], [26], [27]
  5. Islamophobic Muslims - a page that gives a brief narrative of the neologisms creation and lists Muslims who would fall under the label, thus showing how ridiculous and/or misapplied the term is. ([28], [29], [30], [31], [32], [33]) Maybe also add a section about Shi'ites and Sunnis who constantly demonise each other and who should also fall under this label. Also a section on Muslims who espouse the exact same views of Islam which critics/"Islamophobes" claim about Islam. ([34], [35], [36], [37], [38]), [39], [40], [41]. Muslims claiming they are all "Osama" or "terrorists":[42], [43], [44], [45]
  6. Abdul Azeez ibn Baaz - mainly to cover the "flat earth" incident. Interesting links: [46], [47], [48]
  7. Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Reproduction - Gather all the sources regarding embryology and semen production etc. When finished, add it to the Reproduction hub page. Interesting narrations: Sahih Bukhari 8:76:562, Sahih Bukhari 4:55:551
  8. Internet Jihad - Article covering the Islamic phenomena of Internet Jihad. Muslim hacking of internet websites, death threats to internet critics, the tracking down and murder of critics etc. and the fact that Muslims openly discuss hacking sites and do not see this illegal activity conflicting with their faith. Useful links: [49], [50], [51], [52], [53], [54], [55]
  9. The Extremist Majority: What a Billion Muslims Really Think - An article analyzing all the data gathered in our Muslim Statistics page, showing that extremists are a majority in Islam. One possible way of doing this effectively is by starting off with a list of all major Muslim countries. Then put statistics available for each subject (e.g. Jihad, Shari'ah punishments, etc.) next to each country. If one country has only little support for Jihad yet has a large number supporting the execution of apostates, the percentage who support execution are obviously extremists regardless of their views on Jihad. Then you find the Muslim population figure for that country and calculate the number of extremists. An example of this can be viewed here. In reality, the number of extremists would likely be even higher than your final calculation, because there would likely be many who don't support killing apostates yet support Jihad etc. Also add examples of intolerance which clearly shoe the extremists are not a "small" minority ( [56], [57], [58], [59], [60], [61], [62], more examples can be found here)
  10. Converts to the Nation of Islam - Article listing famous converts to "Islam" who are actually converts to the Nation of Islam (orthodox Muslims hate them and none consider their members to be "Muslims"... except for propaganda purposes)

Computer Virus[66] (first ever PC virus created in Pakistan), 5. Suicide Bombing[67][68][69][70][71][72][73][74][75][76] (not a Muslim invention, but a first in many countries).

  14. Muslim Desecration of Other Scriptures - Article covering the reaction to Qur'an burnings etc.(useful links: [77], [78], [79], [80], [81], [82], [83], [84], [85], [86], [87], [88], [89], more here) and Muslims/others desecrating other scriptures without a violent backlash (useful links: [90], [91], [92], [93], [94], [95], [96], [97], [98], [99]). Also cover the fatwa which allows Muslims to use the Bible as toilet paper [100].

In particular, this term applies to apostates who hides their apostasy, and peaceful Muslims who refuse to participate in jihad. This is made clear in Q.4.150-151. See also 4.66 , 4.74, and 4.88." For more help and ideas, see: [109], [110], and [111]

  19. Top 10 Absurd Arguments Used to Defend Islam - inspiration for article [112], When Muslims shout "Allah Akbar!" during persecution of non-Muslims it's really in support of the persecuted [113], Aisha was not really the pre-pubescent daughter of Abu Bakr, but his adult sister [114], When Allah says to beat your wives he really means to send them away [115], Yemeni passenger who stormed cockpit shouting 'Allahu Akbar' may have been looking for toilet[116], Qur'an talks about (white) raisins, not virgins [117]. Once complete, link to Top 10 Lists under "Main Articles"
  20. Create article on Muhammad's wives (call it: Muhammad and his Wives) based on the Sources.

For references just use the hadith/verse numbers. Link the Sources page at the end in See Also and that will be enough as sources. It would have separate sections for the important wives (Aisha, Safiyah etc) and a combined section for other wives where there's not enough material to warrant a separate section.

Also look at pork eating non-Muslim countries and compare public health to health in Muslim countries. Interesting links: [119],
  23. Was Muhammad an illegitimate child? - sources that point out Abdullah died 4 years before Aminah gave birth to him.
