I agree with a post from Dr Shabbir below.

Honorable Brothers and Sisters,

We have been conveying the pure Quranic Message on this forum since 2000.

As long as we had efficient, knowledgeable moderators and participants like Ali Al-Harbi, Arif Shamim, Gemal Shukri and the likes, a uniform Message had been coming across for years. Countless people rallied around the Qur'an and discarded diverging thoughts and confusions.

Unfortunately, for the last 2-3 years, the forum seems to have gone lax due to lesser quality of moderation and paucity of competent scholars with true Quranic knowledge. [This student cannot type much answering very many questions, or make many corrections due to the recurrent arrhythmia.]

As a result, opinions and counter-opinions have allowed confusions to prevail once again. Just examine a few posts during the last 48 hours.

I think, a great responsibility is now resting on the shoulders of the exceptionally good scholars like Captain Faiz Irfan, Azizam Jawaid Ahmed and my Mu'min Brother Mubashir. Please add any other names you consider belong to the same category that, with due apologies, I forgot to mention. [Although only a student, I wish my busy international flying schedule allowed me some time. Arif Shamim]

Misleading the readers on Quranic thought is a huge crime, therefore, with your collective advice, we might have to keep running the forum or close it. Kindly remain vigilant and advise as needed.
