Are you Affiliated with Wikipedia or it's Sister Organisations?

  • No, we are not a part of Wikipedia, and in the foreseable future we will not be.

What Makes You Different from Wikipedia?

  • Wikipedia, despite some best efforts by some of it's users is not neutral when it comes to Islamic culture, beliefs and Muslims.

Where's the Proof That Wikipedia Has This Problem?

  • Islam related or Muslim related articles hosted on Wikipedia often end up having the Muslim point-of-view totally or partially removed, making things unnecessarily negative, and in some cases are even censored out. This is particularly the case when it comes to persecution of Muslims in India for instance where glaring facts are routinely omitted or deleted out even after they've been put in, or for example when it comes to the realisation that the world's first university, which was founded by a woman in Morocco, does not appear anywhere on Wikipedia's main article that deals with the oldest universities in the world.

Are you publicly editable?

  • No, publicly editable encyclopaedias lead to incongruency, point-of-view, edit wars and unreliability. This project aims to correct the mistakes of Wikipedia and other websites aimed at Muslims, but not necessarily made by them.

What is the Overall Purpose of This Project?

  • To show Western Muslims that they have a collected identity, no matter their background; and also to show some non-Muslims that we too have our own story. This is why our articles are in English.

What Types of Muslims is this Project Targeted Towards?

  • Anyone. Even non-Muslims.
