Muslim.Chat Relaunch

Assalaammu’Alaykum,

The Muslim.Chat team is proud to announce the relaunch of the Muslim.Chat Discord server and community.

Over the past 3 months we have been working hard to rebuild the server after it was destroyed. It doesn’t bother us that it was destroyed but it did teach us many lessons. The biggest lesson we learned is that betrayal and treachery can come from anywhere, including from within and from those who claim to “follow the Sunnah” and claim to be “united as Muslims”.

That being said, we have been given a chance to improve and change the server in administration and structure. This is a process we are improving all the time, so we welcome feedback and suggestions.

Some of our major administrative changes include:

  • The administration team is made up of a group of mature and sincere people with diverse backgrounds and thinking
  • We are transparent about our administration policies, including using Shura and voting on most major decisions
  • Removing gender identification and gender policing [1]
  • Not policing people across Discord [1]

The major structural changes are role-based. Categories (Gaming, Tech, Sports, Languages and others) will allow you to get the most out of Muslim.Chat without being exposed to other topics and enabling you to shape your experience based on your interests.

We have a vision where Muslim.Chat becomes a place for Muslims/non-Muslims to come together and hang out, a place for Muslims/non-Muslims around the world to connect and a place to ask/answer questions about Islam. At the same time, Muslim.Chat adheres to the scholarly tradition of agreement on the adherence to the Sunnah as formulated in Aqeedah Tahawiyyah (Al-Tahawi), and to the known madhabs concerning fiqh by reliable narration as formulated in the Hanafi, Shafii, Maaliki and Hanbali madhabs. This scholarly tradition is used as a foundation for us to operate within but at the same time we do not discriminate those following other doctrines.

You are welcome to join our supportive, non-discriminatory and inclusive community.

For any questions or queries, you can reach us on Discord or through our social media channels.

As a special sign-up bonus, we are giving away 1000 free Sultan coins (our in-server currency) for everyone that joins (just mention that you are joining from Reddit).
