Q: While searching for a few Islamic questions I had I ran into the following “Islamic” website: http://islam.stackexchange.com/ Where people can post question and answers. A few information in regards to this website:
– This website is owned by the StackExchange network, whose CEO (and founder) is Joel Spolsky.
– Anyone can give fatwa on the website, registration is free and you can add any answer you like even if it goes against the teachings of Islam.
– Website is Pro Gay, even in the answering of Questions in that regards.
The above wouldn’t really be an issue to me, however, the website tend to spread too much false information like:
It is ok to be a homosexual as long as you don’t practice it: http://islam.stackexchange.com/questions/25595/is-bisexuality-allowed-in…
Sexual acts that aren’t penetration are not zina: http://islam.stackexchange.com/questions/28927/is-this-zina-will-allah-e…
Hijab is not mandatory: http://islam.stackexchange.com/a/10746
The list goes on an on. I think this website was made to deter Muslims from the true message of Islam, however, I am not sure how I can spread the word
about it if I am right. My question is:
If this website is indeed bad. What is the job of websites (like yourself) of dissipating such propaganda and alerting Muslims to be beware of such website (which is the first of its kind).
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
