Mere didacticism is not entertained: instead, we prefer a critical and analytical approach.
Furthermore, the subject should be of real significance for the Muslim Ummah, students and critics
of Islam, and must cover, directly or indirectly, some vital aspect of it.
After a preliminary reading by the Editorial Board, the articles responding positively to these
obligations are sent to referees/ experts on the concerned subjects. The final selection is made
only after receiving the assessment of the referees.
The Editorial Board, however, reserves the right of excluding any article without showing cause for it.

accountable for any statement, comment or information.
