What is the methodology used in collecting and publishing the material on AskIslamPedia?

AskIslamPedia works on a simple concept "WE ARE ONLY COMPILERS" i.e. AskIslamPedia strives to compile the authentic Islamic information that is scattered across the world as bits and pieces as of now. AskIslamPedia is the platform where authentic information from different sources is brought under one roof in a structured and organized format. AskIslamPedia is like a Supermarket where you get everything under one roof yet it is not the manufacturing unit, it is only a place where different commodities are displayed for the consumers.


How many languages AskIslamPedia will cater to?

 AskIslamPedia started with a target of reaching 40 most spoken languages of the world but Alhadulillah with the initial response In-Sha-Allaah, AskIslamPedia will be available in 50 languages of the world shortly and with time in every popular language of the world.
