General content guidelines

Here are some general content guidelines to keep in mind when contributing to Mvslim. 
  1. No strictly religious content
We don’t publish strictly religious content, meaning an article about “10 Things That Are Haram For You” or “The Life of The Prophet” won’t make it on Mvslim. We are no religious scholars and we don’t wish to profile ourselves as if we are.
  1. Accessible and attractive for a millennial audience
Content must be accessible for our audience, which is foremost a millennial group of ages between 16 and 35. This is something to keep in mind when sensing the tone and language of an article.
  1. No hate messages or discriminatory content
Of course we do not share or publish any content that contains messages of hate and discrimination, towards any group of people.
  1. No advertising 
Certain articles can easily be seen as advertised content. However, any article that can be perceived as promotional will be declined.

In the mixed society we live today, we went looking for the ideal platform for Muslims. And of course, we didn’t find it. So we made one ourselves.
