Regarding: Review, Revisions, Collaboration, Corrections & Critique
On the authority of Tamim al-Dari (رضي الله عنه ) it has been reported that the Nabi, (صلى الله عليه وسلم), said: ‘Religion is nasihah.’ We said: ‘To whom?’ The Nabi, (صلى الله عليه وسلم), said: ‘To Allah and His Book, and His messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.’
Al-Ghrubah is a work by diverse hands, by individuals that may have varying views, vision and idiosyncrasies as regards outlook, subject matter or style. We try to produce coherent and concerted content, but, as is the nature of such collaborative endeavors, a certain amount of variance is to be expected irrespective of such efforts.
We will try to keep matters of terminology, transliteration and transcription consistent, but with different authors, there may be some difficulty in regards to formatting both in general; as regards different aesthetics in terms of layout, writing style and word choice, and specific; as regards transcription or transliteration of Arabic terms or phrases as for example with: الله (Allāh, Allâh, Allah, Allaah). We are currently attempting to draft and implant a ‘style guide’ in hopes of addressing apparent inconsistencies, but any such glaring or obtrusive occurrences observed by the reader can be pointed out here, and will be addressed, inshallah.
Additionally, as a result of advice, examination, existing errors, epiphanies or editing, articles may undergo revision, when such is the case the entry and the basic nature of the changes will be posted here. We invite the reader to point out any and all errors or irregularities they may come across either in style, layout, typography, grammar, or content so that they may be reviewed or rectified.
None of the current contributors here are an ‘alim or talib-ul-ilm, and as such, we depend solely upon the established works of qualified and trusted ‘Ulamah, translators and individuals of knowledge and taqwah when compiling compositions. If any errors in transcription, translation, content or concepts are noticed, please inform us so that they may be rectified; especially in regards to ayat or issues of fiqh and aqeedah. If there is an issue of legitimate ikhtalaf regarding a matter or issue touched upon here and one feels it has not been properly addressed or conveyed, please bring such issues to bear as well and we will attempt to redress them.
Finally as regards our philosophy concerning issues of ‘Copyright’ and Ilm-ul-Din, anyone is free to use in part or total any article, image or content found here, with or without citation, notification or permission.
