Not able to start topic on Islamic Books forum?

Recommended Posts

As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu

 

I am not able to start a new topic in the Islamic Books forum, neither in the main page nor in the 4 sub-categories. Is this category restricted to the Mods and Admin only?

Waalaikumussalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu brother Arslan:

 

As far as I know, the forum is open for members. I see brother dr76 started a thread back in July, 2014 so it should work for all members. Insha'Allah I will try to assist however we may have to wait for an administrator. Let's start with: do you see a 'start new topic' button in the books forum?

Oh, I just read the topic 'started' by dr76 and see that members are indeed restricted from posting in the books section; the post was moved by admin sister ummitaalib. Sorry about that.

 

Brother Arslan, please feel free to start a topic and I would be happy to help move it to the books section (if appropriate). I hope that helps and I apologize for my confusion.

JazaakAllah.

 

Where the button should be it actually says "You cannot start a new topic". This button is not clickable.

 

I am, however, able to reply to a topic as I see a textbox when I click on a thread.

No need to apologize. Insha'Allah, might post a book tomorrow. Getting late here.

 

JazaakAllah for your help.

Assalaamu 'alaykum warahmatullah

Yes the books section (as well as the events section) is not open to all members. The decision was taken initially to restrict posting of unauthentic books and events. Perhaps we can lift this restriction and moderate more closely inshaAllah.

 

Brother Arsalan, while browsing or searching, please feel free to report any posts which have doubtful info....Though a lot of posts were removed many remained and we were not able to read thoroughly every single post when the forum made changes.

 

May I take this opportunity to say Jazaakallaahu khayran for your valuable and much appreciated contributions. May your reward be in abundance for the time spent in propagating haqq..aameen

Insha'Allah, will post a book later on tonight. In the mean time, could you explain to me why it says "Dawah Team" under my name. Dont remember signing up for that...

Insha'Allah it seems to me that, since the books section is not open to all members, a separate group of membership (i.e. dawah team) was created to facilitate beneficial topics and posts. Will wait for administrators to confirm and clarify.

Yeah, that seems to be what happened here.

 

Anyway, I've posted in the books section, only thing left is for it to be approved by a moderator insha'Allah.

Yes sister Acacia is correct. Brother Arslan, hope you don't mind but you're stuck with being on the "Dawah Team" so you have more options available to you. Unfortunately permission is not granted to individual members or some such technical problem. Sister amaturrahman also has been added

 

I didnt realise posts would need approving. Maybe the first few only, so let us see what happens
