RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3500Goal: $3500

Do we need this? This is not an encyclopedia, after all.--Spud (talk) 15:18, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Probably not, unless there's some hotly contested cannon or unless it's a target for Islamophobes and critics of Islam--"Shut up, Brx." 15:31, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
(EC)There's potential for an article on important parts of the main religious books (the Gospels, for instance) but my knowledge of the Quran is too minimal to tell if this article has such potential. The writer certainly hasn't bothered telling us, perhaps we could ask him? SophieWilder 15:36, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
woman changes mind shock:RW's coverage of Islam barely scratches the surface really, and an article on this is probably too arcane. Delete. SophieWilder 15:38, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

who consider the hadith to be an innovation.[edit]

I think maybe you're using the wrong word. Why does "innovation" cause problems? Theory of Practice "Now we stand outcast and starving 'mid the wonders we have made." 21:53, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

bid'ah is considered a sin in islam. The word "innovation" is the closest equivalent. I'll amend Pass a Method (talk) 21:57, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
Bid‘ah may actually be a better article--"Shut up, Brx." 22:36, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
