Submit an Essay/Op-Ed

Jump to: navigation, search

This is the submission form for essays/op-eds. Views contained in essays/op-eds are not necessarily endorsed by WikiIslam. Please see the Essays/Op-Eds Disclaimer for details.


Essays/op-eds should adhere to the following guidelines (this is a growing list currently under construction):


  • Use capital letters and fullstops where appropriate. Do not use SMS language or excessive ALL CAPS.
  • Although essays/op-eds can be informal in style, keep the level of your tone and language within reason.
  • Make sure your submission is 1000 words or longer, and at least 3 paragraphs.


  • Do not submit racist, homophobic or sexist content. This includes derogatory comments towards Arabs or other ethnic groups often associated with Islam.
  • Do not submit content endorsing/supporting racist, homophobic or sexist organizations, political parties or individuals.
  • Focus on issues related to Islam. Do not use essays/op-eds as a platform to debate or attack atheism/theism/religion or to claim "_____ is just as bad as Islam."
  • Original research and higher criticism is welcome, but the thesis must be credible (I.e. explained and backed up by supporting evidence).
