Only banned users, Ulema, Admins and Moderators are allowed to access the Jail Khana forum.
2.22 The admin/moderators have discretion over banning members.
2.23 After much consultation and reflection the Shura of sunniforum.com has unanimously decided that any discussions relating to jihad are strictly not allowed on sunniforum.com. If any such discussions are created, all associated threads and posts will be removed immediately from our forum. However, please note this does not in anyway mean we do not agree with such an integral part of our Deen. We take the safety, security and peace of mind of our members, the Shura, Moderators and Ulama of our forum very seriously and it is for this reason we have decided sunniforum.com will not cater for any jihad related discussions. Jazakallahu khairun for your cooperation.
Section 3: Posting Guidelines
3.1 Read the previous threads so as not to bring up a topic that has been discussed ad nauseum. sunniforum.com has a search feature - use it to see if topics have already been discussed.
3.2 Please follow the general Islamic guidelines of Adaab (proper conduct relating to each other and with the opposite gender).
3.3 Please remember that literally thousands of people are reading your words, including many non-Muslims.
3.4 Use wisdom and kindness when speaking to each other AND to non-Muslims.
3.5 Exercise courtesy at all times. Think and review your post carefully before submitting. Please use the edit or delete button if needed. Avoid personal insults or flames. Please do not involve yourself in something that does not concern you. If you are joking, make sure other members do not take it the wrong way.
3.6 Please read the forum description before posting or opening a new topic, i.e. post in the relevant Forum Categories. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Members should use a "normal font", avoid excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, and punctuation's (e.g.! and?) in your posts. Avoid excessive use of capital letters. This is considered shouting on public forums. Please do not attempt to disguise your text by using *asterisk* or -dashes- to override our language filter (word censor).
3.7 Sunniforum.com contains specific Brother- and Sister- only rooms. Only the appropriate members are allowed to enter these rooms. Although the Administrators and Moderators can attempt to control this, we realise some may access these forums without our knowledge. Ultimately, it is an honour system, and Allah swt is watching and WILL hold violators accountable on the Day of Judgement. Do not let temporary curiosity lead you into gaining the wrath of Allah swt.
3.8 When interacting with the opposite gender on the main public forums, please maintain modesty and make posts to the point and platonic. Extraneous, provocotive or suggestive comments will be edited or deleted.
3.9 No public posting of private e-mail addresses in general forums. Private e-mail addresses may ONLY be posted by brothers and sisters in their respective rooms. (i.e. Sisters in sisters' forum, brothers in brothers' forum).
3.10 Smilies are allowed on all forums. However, once again, please maintain modesty and refrain from excessive usage of smilies, especially on public forums. Smilies can also be considered extraneous, provocative or suggestive, and therefore the Admins and Moderators have full rights to edit such postings.
