    Question! "Forum Scholar"

    As-Salaamu Alaykum,

    One issue that has come up is that now there is a "forum scholar" named Abu Mus'ab and apparently some members feel that only this person should be allowed to discuss legal issues.

    Keep in mind, I have been a member of this forum for over 13 years.

    Is this an actual forum rule now?

    If so, how does a member go about getting "qualified" by the administration to be deemed capable of discussing legal issues?

    Can a member be banned for discussing legal issues without being deemed as "qualified" by the administration?

    Thank you.

    I think you misunderstood the whole point of not speaking without knowledge completely,

    It was a general reminder that we as laymen should know our limits and refrain from giving our own 2 cents on issues like Fiqh,

    As far as I'm aware Abu Musab is the only qualified Alim on this forum, if you are one too then your the second one​ on This Forum of Allah عز و جل knows how many members,

      AbuNajm you are a mystery. AbuNajm you have baffled us.

          It wasn't longer than a year or so since my last activity. As for details for the log-in, I like to keep mine simple. I've had the same on-line name since I began participating online in Muslim forums in the late 90's.

          I get busy on projects and translations so there are usually stretches of time when I don't participate much online.

              No, I haven't. I might have had brother Tarek's before that.

              May Allah AWJ free our sister and grant her patience. Her and all our brothers and sisters wrongfully imprisoned. Ameen.

                  I apologize for the misunderstanding.

                  وأنتَ فجزاكَ الله خيراً

                  I would never refer to myself as an "Aalim" or "scholar", even if others thought I qualified as one.

                      By the way - Sister 'Aafia disappeared in 2003 until 2008, she was found and later sentenced in 2010.

                        According to (one of) the admins of the forum, he is not the "forum scholar" nor does he have any special title.

                        Although it did seem that way to me. Maybe because he himself is an admin/mod so he gave himself that position.

                          Thanks for the link. Yes, I was an upstanding member of IslamicAwakening forum. That is until the forum changed their beliefs and methodology and began to target with bans any individuals who were popular/knowledgeable and held different beliefs and methodologies.

                          Good to know. I think some are confused about that subject.

                          Just to be clear, this thread has nothing to do with Abu Mus'ab. I don't know the brother or have anything to say about his level of knowledge.

                          It struck me as strange that someone referred to him as the "forum scholar" and suggested that no one had the "right" to discuss legal matters aside from him.

                          It would help to hear what you said from a moderator or administrator directly.

                              Akhi I mentioned him because he was the only Alim I know on the forum who's qualified and does the QA sessions,

                              The rest of us are just laymen, and the problem is many of us don't know our limits and start giving our own opinions on issues like Fiqh or other aspects of Islam which we are not qualified to speak about,

                              Since your on the subject the respected Sheikh didn't give himself any position due to his mod privileges or anything like that, I know he's qualified because I read the link below,

                              https://darulilm.wordpress.com/about/

                              Shows what he studied and who he studied under,

                              And for information he didn't even tell me this,I found out from another brother who posted the link,

                              We had other alims on the forum in the past a d they left, even AbuNajm, haven't​ even heard of him till recently, and he's been in the forum since 2003
