Their lots of websites claiming 2b legit islamic sites but they aint (Mostly US or Zionist). If any1 knows any fake websites please let me & other muslim brothers & sisters know so they can be aware of being falsely mislead. The Internet is now the most popular place to find Info about something, but as u know their are a lot of false sites out there & lots of muslims now use the internet to find more infomation about Islam, as well as non-muslims who maybe thinking about reverting but might be put off after coming across a false site thinking it is the truth, so this is a very important topic.

Jazakallah

Wa Alaykum Salam,

Good suggestion MashaAllah. Also, along with avoiding the wrong sites, keep in mind the good sites. Muslimah has already started a topic with a few very useful links.

thequran.com is false site

U should all ways double check sites, u can kinda telll if a site is fake, i remember going to 1 website which said music is allowed & kept pulling out some quotes, but i knew it was false.

The web is being used by enemies of Islam to try to corrupt muslims/non-muslims by showing a Quran that has some false things written in it. They are also very clever somesites my have all the correct infomation about Islam but the Quran might be changed on their site.

So if ur want 2 read the Quran in english be very very careful, if u can u should get 1 from ur local mosque or islamic shop just 2 b on the safe side.

Jazakallah

Assalamoalaikum

Just wondering if anyone can either approve or reject this site:

www.searchtruth.com

I've found it quite useful, but I don't want to trust it wholly unless it has been approved, so any feedback would be much appreciated.

Jazakumullah Khairun

Assalamu alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Possibly it is not a good idea to publish these links. It means we are giving the Anti Islamic sites free exposure.

Wallahu A'alam We concur with the following:


"Caution: There is Another anti-Islamic Site There"

Why issuing an alert letter is precisely the wrong thing to do?
By Khalid Baig
Posted: 21 Ramadan 1422, 7 December 2001

The alert letters keep coming. Beware here is the latest anti-Islamic site. Then a URL so you can verify that it is indeed as described. Then a passionate request to tell all the Muslims in the world about it.

Sincere. Misguided. Counter-productive.

Little do the senders realize that they are actually helping the very sites they are trying to fight.

The failure is in realizing that the Internet is a very different medium and the rules that applied to the previous media do not always apply here. If there is a bad magazine or book out there, you can tell others about it. We can be sure that nobody will rush to the closest bookseller to buy it. The warning may be useful, if there was a chance that some people could have bought the book out of ignorance.

In the click-click world of the Internet, the first thing most people will do is to click on the URL, thereby increasing the hit counts and boasting the morale of the site owners. Second, it will help it with search engine placement, as some of them will use the increased curiosity traffic as a sign of popularity. You just helped create the monster you wanted to fight!

It is common sense. If you don't want people to visit a site, just don't tell them about it.

It is very easy to setup a page on the Internet. It is very difficult to draw traffic to it. The most anti-Islamic site will die if it faces a frozen counter. That would happen if you just leave it alone. But if you are out there telling everyone about it and asking them to do the same, you are in effect volunteering as their publicity department. That is exactly what they need.

If there is a well-established site (like CNN) it makes sense to launch a protest campaign. But for most of the sites the prudent course is just the opposite. Leave it alone. Let it die of neglect. A natural death. The greater the lack of attention, the faster will be the death of this would be monster.

So the next time you receive an alert letter about an anti-Islamic site, just delete it. If you respond to the sender, do not include the original text of his alert email, because even that may help some search engine ranking.

There were dozens of anti-Islamic sites that sprang up recently but died soon after because, luckily, our enthusiasts had not noticed them and had not publicized them through their alert letters. The ones that receive the alert letter mention will, unfortunately, survive and may thrive.

On the Internet, the best use of your energies is to promote the good Islamic sites. Let the good drive out the evil.

Now, may we request that you send this article to all your friends?

Yes very well said & true, not giving out any more URL's is the best option.

I think the purpose here was just to warn ppl of these dodgy sites so that they do not take deeni knowledge from them - therefore I think there was some good in posting these sites. As has been seen many ppl are confused about the authenticity of a site and without asking how can they find out wat is or is not a good authenticated islamic site, offering wholesome islamic information.

Assalamu Alaykum,

Jazakumullah for your opinions. The last message makes most sense to me although the article posted by our respect scholar 'Ulamaa ID 03" makes very informative and valid points. If letting Muslims know the incorrect sites with warnings then inshaAllah they will not be influenced by those sites.

In regards to this, the following topic has started:

this is what they say about abu hurayra(Radiallahu anho)
Abu-Hurayra and the Shaping
of Traditional Islam
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Many Muslims and non-Muslims who study Islam are overwhelmed by the number of
Ahadiths narrated by or attributed to Abu Hurayra. The corruption that entered traditional
Islam came through many false hadiths. Thousands of these hadiths were narrated by Abu
Hurayra. Next to QURAN, the word of God, Abu Hurayra is the second source for many
religious matters for traditional Muslims.

Admin: Text removed

If we apply the supposedly rigid criteria used to select those who narrated hadiths, Abu
Hurayra will be the first one to fail the test and his hadiths will be the first to be counted
among the fabrications.
