IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR EXTREMISTS
It is also important to mention here that some members on the site make Islam impossible to follow by overeacting and making all expressions Haraam. This does not do anything nor does it help in any way whatsoever besides the fact that it causes arguments. The forum is text based so only words should be looked at, no members should be judged or insulted. If one does have genuine concerns, be a sensible person and report the issue by using the contact form. Do not start arguing and telling everyone off like a scary headteacher. It only upsets the members who post and in turn, put them off.
