How are you dear brothers and sisters? I want to talk about the language in this forum. I am not trying to offend other people, don't take this in a wrong way. :statisfie In this forum, I see some people using shortcuts for writing words, ex: wud, wat, dat etc... I'm not saying that it should never be used, I'm just saying that in a forum you should write in a way that everyone can read it easily and faster. Write with the correct spelling. The word "wat", why not write "what", all you have to do is add an "h", its not a big deal and it doesn't even take more then a second. Use slang type of language when you are chatting with your friends. I'm not forcing you into this, everyone has the right to do whatever he/she pleases. I hope you think about this. Jazakallah

Assalamu Alaikum

*tries to eliminate 'wud' from language* That's going to be hard..

I agree ekhi, and yea its a forum rule not to excessively use text words, so believe me, this type of thing cut down a lot more subhanallah compared to how it used to be before, but I understand where you're coming from, it does get irritating at times when it's excessively used.

Barak allahu feek for the reminder

That's one of the reason people are very bad at reading and writing, spelling, grammar!!!
I won't be suprised of the reason, by the way they write!

Actually that never occurred to me. May I ask if that applies, as far as you are concerned, to all pictures and reproductions of the male form, or just photos? Because I kind of like my Avatar but I'll change it if it is offensive.

I have a question I have asked before about Urdu but got no answer - do Muslims use Text-type words in other languages? I mean it must be easy to do in Arabic anyway because there are now vowels. But do other Muslim language get written like English does by teenagers?

There is slang......but that's about it....I'm doubtful that they do write it differently.

Malays have their own text language......but that's because they use English alphabet anyway :p

But if they use the traditional alphabet "Jawi" I doubt it can be put into a text type form.....and anyway, Malaysians dont use the Jawi alphabet except in Islamic classes anyway....the English alphabet is the one always used.
