I'm only ever on this one.
I joined one called Annaseeha, but haven't posted since my intro.
So, I guess this is my favourite forum.

I don't know if turn to Islam is a forum is it? I have seen some pretty cool stuff there but I have never registered.. I have registered on two other (Islamic forums).. one where I was severely censured by one dear sister who replied to my one post with 72 lol and didn't approve any of my subsequent replies to hers, so I left in a hurry.. and another one on a temporary basis but it is so chaotic (it actually exists on your current list) it is such a poor forum that I felt it might be a good idea if this forum bought it and improved it a little..

I have joined atheist and anti Islamic forums galore before to try to improve the image of Islam but the people there were so happy to live in their own world that I was banned shortly there after..

obviously I like the community here, else I wouldn't post since posting is in general a complete waste of time.. I am just here because I enjoy the company of Muslims and since I know so few Muslims in real life, this makes up for my real life disadvantage in many ways.. a very large and versatile community and the people are genuinely lovely and harmonious and I got to make some wonderful friends to whom I now keep contact outside of this forum .. al7mdllilah

I go there occassionally to advertise our IslamicBoard shows and events. They are double our size and have less than half the staff we do. You can't blamem though because you wouldn't want to trust just anyone with the biggest/most active forum on the net.

I find Ummah good on the large scale. Once you post, you'll be caught by a wave of posts. Our forum here can be considered a mini-Ummah, except I'd like to say we are a bit more strict and rigid on what's posted etc.

I really never thought I'd be in the position I am today, alhamdulillah. And I'll admit I'm bias when I say I love IslamicBoard the best.

You are describing IA forums. If you can't defend your position with daleel and result to childish "nuh uh" posts then Ummah isn't the place for you; they let anyone speak there, even kafirs and munafiqs . They have been accused of being everything from a hardcore sufi site to a terrorist recruiting site by folks who couldn't hack it there.

I think there's too many Islamic Forums, that are too similar to each other. We should work towards merging the similar ones.

I've contacted a few forums, to be completely honest. I've also contacted other big ones not mentioned on the list, and asked them if they'd consider merging. What would your opinions be on merging? IslamicBoard with the upperhand, however. They will come to this forum and adopt our rules, which are prett much similar with all forums, except Ummah.

I'm in the talks with 2 very big forums, actually. I'm deeply considering the merge, if they agree.

I registered on many other Islamic forums (themuslimszone, fisabillallah, Islamic-Life, and this one)
but I have to admit that this forum and http://www.islamic-life.com/forums are the best two I have ever registered on. Well, I am not active on the others anymore.
Islamic-Life forum which used to be called iDawah in the past is a perfect source for those who aim to give dawah. There are no many active members there, but its an amazing place of knowledgeable people.
I strongly recommend people who is active in Dawah to have a look on that forum

Thats what kept me active in LI for around 2 yrs so far, I hope the "strict administration" we used to have here remain unchanged inshaAllah

I am also a member in some Christians forums but I am not that active there.

Ummah Forums is the worst i have come across. I mean all people do is talk about absolute nonsense. Full of Idle talk and the tone in which many speak is a lot to be desired aswell.

Anyway, I tried to post my favorite forums web address but it seems im not allowed to write it. I'd say in terms of advice this site is one of the best, if not the best but anything concerning in depth Islamic issues..., I generally tend to ignore them. So many websites/groups claiming they are on "Haq" (The True Path) and its very hard to distinguish who is indeed the one to follow

Anyway, May Allah SWT guide is all in this blessed month.

They also speak misguidence, make tafkir on Muslims, breed hatred between Muslims and speak the wrong aqeedah on many issues without the knowledge

The only takfir I have ever seen on there was by one guy in particular who, all joking aside, is a true khawaarij and people definitely called him out on it.

The aqeedah "problem" there is new to me... unless you are one of those maturidi/ashari guys. There are quite a few knowledgeable brothers on there and I have benefited greatly from the Learn about Islam section on there.

I am not aware of all these labels that come up every other week, all I know is that whatever benefit there is in that forum it certainly doesn't exceed the harm caused by it; it acts as a misguidence for less knowledgable muslims and most likely puts off people new to islam or people looking into islam

Best solution is to get it shut down or parts of it closed, especially the world affairs section

If it wasn't for Ummah, I would not know my Islam as my community is horrible with regards to educating the muslims.

I don't think the current affairs section there should be closed (perhaps the marriage section though), I just think the kafir trolls who try to rile up the younger, more boisterous members there should be banned.

So far as labels, the only group I see on there that gets slammed are the madkhali-leaning salafis and for good reason as well, given that they are a fitnah to many communities.

See what I mean about labels I've never even heard of a 'madkhali-leaning salafis'. I only learn about these groups from ummah and when I do hear about them, I also learn the about hatred between, you get some people wishing jahanam on them, some people making tafkir, Then you have muhajiroons (who ever they are) wishing death on everyone, its just crazy and unislamic.

You come here and everything is civilised and discussed in a civilised manner with proper cited sources, you won't find people acting the internet mullahs and preaching their own views.

The reason the current affairs section should be closed is because of the false jihad ideas that get spread their, suicide bombings, killling muslims, fighting muslims govts.

All that acts as fitna and breeds corruption and hatred

I see you take your news from BBC and don't take the advice from Surat al-Hujarat. After that drama that went down in January at Ummah it still baffles my mind that people still choose to think ill of brothers and sisters in such a manner.

I have seen the madkhali salafis in person. They almost made me lose my Islam with some of the poison they spew in the name of the deen. Count yourself lucky that your community isn't riddled with them.

I'm not talking about news sources I'm talking about citing sources in matters of deen. Some people fail to back up some of the crap they come out with proper islamic sources.

What went down in january? and its quite hypocritical to mention that 'people' (which I think includes me) think ill of those brother and sisters when those same people have nothing good to say about muslims anywhere all you ever read about is munafiqs, fasiqs, murta'ds, kafirs etc. guess where I learnt these terms?

Sorry about your bad experiences within your community, we don't have any of that here. But the way you're describing these people it just sounds like you're describing the common ummah member? I think I've come across the worst of ummah but I know there are many knowledgable mebers

Thats enough from me, my rants aren't really gonna make a difference, just warn people here about some of the dangers of ummah forums

In January, a kafir journalist (Glen "Omar Hamza" Jenvy, who has since taken his shahadah alhamdulillah) posed as a muslim on there and started calling for the extermination of the jews in the UK after the genocide in Gaza. Nobody took him up on his offer or even responded to him in any way but he still wrote a "story" about how Ummah was full of terrorists and whatnot and it got sold to Sun... and then BBC, ABC, Yahoo, Sky, Fox, etc took it from there and ran with it. If it weren't for a third party blogger (Richard Tims) and Sajid over there doing some good sleuthing, Ummah would still be tarnished to this day. This is exactly what Allah was talking about in Surat al-Hujarat with regards to verifying news as it comes to you and, frankly, I don't trust anything the mainstream media says about muslims.

p.s. Those terms are in the Quran and hadith, I heard about them long before I got to Ummah.
