"Violence in the Quran" link in See also

Koreangauteng have been adding Violence in the Quran as "See also" links in various Sura article, e.g. [1]. The reason seems to be the user's interpretation of the suras, e.g. "Citing 109:1-6" is given as the reason for adding it to Al-Kafirun. I think making such connection goes against WP:OR among others. Per WP:BRD I think it's appropriate to revert until consensus is reached. HaEr48 (talk) 04:35, 29 March 2020

Thank you. I have removed the Al-Kafirun 'See also' wikilink. Koreangauteng (talk) 21:02, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Definitive list of the Sheikh-ul-Islams of the Ottoman Empire?

I found differences between the ENwiki List of Sheikh-ul-Islams of the Ottoman Empire and the TRwiki tr:Osmanl? ?eyhülislamlar? listesi. Is there a definitive list of Sheikh-ul-Islams that can be used to check this?

Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 18:30, 4 April 2020 (UTC)

That article cites ref 3 for the list, though I can't verify it. Eperoton (talk) 20:22, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Biographies of Contemporary Sunni scholars

Assalamu Alykum, I have created a number of biographical articles about contemporary Sunni scholars. The list can be found at my user-page. Alhamdulillah, I'm doing well and I can contribute in fixing biographies of Deobandi Sunni scholars.

Islam and Football

At Talk:Mandatory_Palestine_national_football_team#Henshaw we are having a debate about a statement from a 1979 sports encyclopedia that says: "Islamic beliefs throughout the Arab world resisted Western cultural institutions such as soccer until well after World War II". Any insights on this would be helpful. Onceinawhile (talk) 13:51, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

Please review this edit

In a recent edit,[3] User:Balolay removed pregnancy from a list of conditions that exempt from fasting during the Ramadan. The source of the statement remains Fasting (Al Siyam) -  - p. 18, el Bahay el Kholi, 1998. Perhaps somebody could consult the source and see if pregnancy is indeed not included there, or provide another source for the claim in the edit summary: "Pregnant women are not exempt unless there is risk of complications". Debresser (talk) 11:07, 12 May 2020 (UTC) This clearly states that pregnant women should fast unless they fear risking their or their child's lives. This article clearly states that even if pregnant women choose not to fast during Ramadan while pregnant they have to fast to make up for those fasts at a later date after pregnancy is over. Which makes them not exactly exempt from fasting Balolay (talk) 13:40, 12 May 2020 (UTC)
The question remains what Fasting (Al Siyam) -  - p. 18, el Bahay el Kholi, 1998 says about fasting for pregnant women. Because it would seems from the fact that the previous version of the article said that pregnant women are exempt from fasting and used this source as a reference, that the source says so. If indeed it says there that they are exempt, then we have different opinions, and the article should mention both. Debresser (talk) 18:04, 12 May 2020 (UTC)
This article also says no exemption in safe health conditions for pregnant women. Regarding the: "to make up for those fasts at a later date after pregnancy is over ... makes them not exactly exempt" - from what I understand, everyone (the travellers, the sick etc.) has to make up for the missed fasts whenever in the future they are able to do so. In this sense no one is "exempt from fasting". If "exempt" is confusing, the term "deferred fasting" can also be included. -- AhmadF.Cheema (talk) 00:51, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
Making fast up later would happen outside of Ramadan, thus making the woman exempt from Ramadan fasting. As far as Ramadan fasting is concerned exemption is the same as deferred fasting. However, I understand that in the article on sawm the two would mean different things.VR talk 23:57, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
@Debresser: That source says "Pregnant and nursing women may break the Ramadan fast but shall fast a number of days, equal to those missed, after pregnancy or nursing ceases." This is on page 36. I agree that both opinions should be mentioned.VR talk 00:05, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
I've used this wording to hopefully capture both views. Lemme know if its problematic.VR talk 00:10, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Sexual slavery in Islam

I would be grateful if some people with subject knowledge could assess the sweeping edits currently being done to that article. I'm getting the impression that this is the wholesale replacement of one interpretation with another, based on very selective sources, but I simply don't know the subject area. In any case I suspect these big deletes/replacements need some talk page discussion before being implemented. - Also notified WikiProject Women's History. --Elmidae (talk · contribs)

Requesting wider attention

I felt article Islamic_literature is in bit of neglect so I added my note on talk page there, requesting to take note of Talk:Islamic_literature#Article_review. If possible requesting copy edit support. Suggestions for suitable reference sources at Talk:Islamic_literature is also welcome.

Thanks and greetings
