UmmahBoard.Com is a forum where you can come and seek and share Authentic knowledge based on Quran and Sunnah and the ‘as-salaf as-saliheen’, which refers to the first three generations of Muslims (starting with the Companions of the Prophet), otherwise known as the Pious Predecessors. And we believe as ‘Imaam al-Asbahaanee (d.535H) – rahimahullah – said: “the sign of ‘Ahlus-Sunnah’ (The people of sunnah) is that they follow the Salafus-Saalih and abandon all that is innovated and newly introduced into the Deen”.

Terms and Conditions for all Users

As-salaamu Alaikum! (Peace be unto you!)


People who do not follow these guidelines may be warned, or may have their IP and/or user name banned. Discretion will be left to the administrators of this forum and will depend on the severity of the event.


There are other forums where this type of prohibited behaviour is tolerated or even encouraged. If you can not follow these guidelines while on this forum we ask that you post elsewhere.


Please take the time to familiarize yourself with these guidelines. These guidelines are in place to ensure a productive community for everyone to promote the true image of Islam


The mission of our e-Islamic community is to help foster a better understanding of Islam. To facilitate this, we have laid a set of guidelines that all members are required to read and adhere to. The Staff of this forum will edit or reject any post that violates these rules, and terminate the membership, based on the severity of the violation, of any member who acts in a manner inconsistent with the letter or spirit of these rules.

No list is able to encompasses all the possible violates that may lead to action by the Staff. The Staff will use its discretion in dealing with posts and members that are judged to be detrimental to the community.


Unless the reason for the Staff's action is obvious, a PM (meaning Private Message) will be sent to the member detailing the action. Additionaly, the member can read his\her warning log that can be found in the User Control Panel. Members are encouraged to seek clarification at any time. Pms to the Staff will always be answered, insha'Allaah (God-willing).


Although the administrators and moderators will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this site, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of UmmahBoard, nor vBulletin Solutions, Inc. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message. The author of each post/thread shall be responsible for its content and shall be held liable for any legal consequences resulting in any illegal behaviour.


The owners of UmmahBoard.com reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any content item for any reason.

If the entire body of rules were to be summed up in one word, it would be: respect. Respect for Islam, respect for fellow members and respect for the community as an entity. Remember, a little common sense goes a long way.

When posting in our forum, members must adhere to the following rules:


General Guidelines

1. Help build an e-Muslim community that supports each other, and promotes the Islamic image.

2. The purpose of this forum is to educate non-Muslims and Muslims about Islam.


Post Etiquettes

posting only to increase post count

5. When quoting an article, story, poem, review or any written material, you must mention the author, if known to you, and the source from which you copied these materials. Give credit to where it belongs. No copyright material is to be posted and the poster shall be held liable if at a later date it is found to be illegally posted.

10. Racist remarks will not be permitted since racism doesn't hold a place in Islam

11. Posting porn or material of a sexual nature are prohibited and will result in an instant ban.

12.This is not a Fiqh discussion board. Prolonged threads arguing over Fatwas and the details of Islamic law will be closed. Avoid asking questions that require a Scholar or Shaykh, as there is no one on the board qualified to answer your questions. Please use other knowledgeable means such as a scholar, Imam or knowledgeable person in your area or provide sources.

13. No sectarian issues allowed. We are promoting the unity of Islam. Allah (Exalted is He) said in Surah Al-An'âm, verse 159:

Verily, those who divide their religion and break up into sects (all kinds of religious sects), you (O Muhammad -- Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) have no concern in them in the least. Their affair is only with Allâh, Who then will tell them what they used to do.

14. Do not upload, post or otherwise transmit any contents that is unlawful (haram), illegal, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libellous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.

15.Promoting Religions other than Islam While interfaith discussions are allowed promoting another religion is not allowed on the discussion board. This discussion board was created to promote Islam, not another religion. There are many other discussion boards on the Web which you can promote your religion other than Islam.

16. No attacks against Islam in any form will be tolerated on this discussion board. This includes, but is not limited to attacks on the Qur'an, Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), his family and companions, or any other prophets in Islam, or Islamic scholars, past or present. While some may complain that there is "freedom of speech" please remember this is a privately owned discussion board which was created and is maintained to serve the purpose of promoting Islam, encourage peace between muslims and non-muslims. What is allowed in speech is determined by the Admin and not the member.

17.When a long article/post has been posted, and you want to comment on the article/post, do not quote it since it is a waste of space.

18. Do not say "Islam says X" unless your position is based upon sound evidence - which means the Qur'an and the Sunnah. Always cite your sources. If quoting the Qur'an, give soorah (chapter) and ayah (verse) number. For ahadeeth, you must the name of the collection, volume/book number and hadeeth number. Unless you quoting from an agreed-upon authenthic collection (i.e. Bukharee, Muslim) you must also provide authenthic information.

19. Members cannot post images of military weapons or vehicles in their avatars, signatures or profile pictures since our goal is to establish Islam in a peaceful manner, and such images may be interpreted as a violent call.

20. No praise of, condoning of, or calls for violence or other unislamic behaviour will be tolerated whatsoever on the forum. This includes inciting and glorifying combat under the pretense of Jihad. This forum shall not be used in any sense to communicate violence and any such incidents will be reported to the authorities.
