  • Hello Guest and welcome :)

    There are a few things to note

     :blank: Please make sure that you list your gender and then join the appropriate group (Male/Female) as there are 2 boards that are hidden that are only for males and only for females, to be able to ask more personal gender specific questions (keep in mind that the staff have full access to these boards)... anyone found out that they have lied to gain access to the opposite genders boards will be banned.

     :blank: Also there are a few boards that allows you to post anonymously, so don't feel shy to ask a question, you may post it without anyone knowing that it was you asking the question (keep in mind again that the staff all can still see who posted, in case if some abuses this privilege)

    A Few places that you can post anonymously are:
    Prayer Requests
    Revert Support Area
    Ask A Muslim
    Women's Chat
    Men's Chat
    Youth's Chat
    Family Chat
    Debunking The Myths and Falsehoods of Islam

     :blank: To help deter spam, New users can not use signatures, add their website to their profile, or post external links (this is only for new members, once you have become an active member you will be allowed to do so, unless you abuse the privilege)

     :blank: To also help deter spam, double posts will automatically be merged together, please be patient if you have a question and it hasn't been answered yet

     :blank: Post Collaboration
    you can add multiple authors to your posts if you and another member (or several members) have worked together to create an article (a topic, ect)

     :blank: Glossary
    you will notice some words are white, if you hover over these words it will explain their meaning, feel free to suggest words and/or better definitions
    example: what does salah mean?

     :blank: There's a few different things as well to help members,
    The Knowledge base, Articles, and Blogs to help post useful/helpful information
    There is also the gallery to post helpful/useful images
    There is also the downloads to post helpful/useful files/information
    There is also a directory to post helpful/useful links

     :blank: If you would like to help us, there is also donations
    these will be used to cover the costs of running the site
    these will be used to help out those in need (on a case by case basis)
    these will be used to help teach others about islam, supply them with materials needed (quran, prayer mat, possibly suitable clothing for prayer, ect) as well as finding them a mosque nearby, a teacher to help them along and other unforeseen costs of reverting

     :blank: in your profile, you will see a setting for Buy Me A Drink.... if you turn this on and place your paypal information there, members can send you donations if they wish to
    you will also find in your profile that you can change the color of your member name to something different (each member can choose whatever color they like, it does have to be hexadecimal (#fff for instance would be white) there are many sites online where you can get html color codes from (this one is a good one: Html Color Codes)
    you can also add a custom title as well as some personal text, you can use bbcode
    you will also notice that there are 2 settings for your location.... one is for your location (you can type anything in that you like) the other is to select your country and the flag will display on your profile and posts
    you can also add your social networking profiles if you wish
    if you have a blog here in the forum, an icon will display on your posts for a link to your blog (I still need to add this to the profile page)
    if you have it set to display your email address, it will only display on your profile, not in posts (this is because guests and bots are not allowed to visit profiles but they can visit posts)
    there is also a referral link in your profile for you to use to refer new members to the forum, each time a member joins using your referral it will show on your profile and posts the number of members
    you will notice an activity bar, this resets monthly, just to give an idea of if a member is active or not

    PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS FORUM IS STILL IN TESTING SO THINGS WILL PROBABLY CHANGE BUT THE ABOVE MENTIONED WILL REMAIN, JUST THE LAYOUTS MAY CHANGE! I WILL STILL BE ADDING MORE THINGS THAT I FEEL WILL BE HELPFUL BUT FOR NOW I BELIEVE EVERYTHING IS PRETTY MUCH READY TO GO LIVE, JUST NEED PEOPLE TO TEST THINGS OUT AND MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS WORKING! THANK YOU!
