Wikifeqh, The Wikipedia For Islamic Religious Law

Seyyed Mehdi Khamoushi, the head of the Islamic Ideology Dissemination Organization, announced this week the coming launch of Wikifeqh, an online encyclopedia which is based on “wiki” technology and includes articles on Islamic religious law and the principles of Islam.

At a meeting with Islamic religious law lecturers, Khamoushi stressed the need for using advanced technology for education and dissemination of Islam, and indicated the significance of social networks and wiki-based online encyclopedias in the modern world. The authors of the articles include religion students from the major Shi’ite religious seminaries in Iran and Iraq. (Tabnak, October 24)

In recent years, top clerics in Iran have made increasing use of advanced telecommunications and information technology for education, study, and dissemination of Islam. For example, major clerics make use of the internet and cellular technology to issue religious rulings, provide religious consultation, and fortune telling.

Last month it was reported that the religious seminary in Qom launched a new service allowing web surfers to watch and listen to religion lessons given by Shi’ite clerics in the religious centers of Iran and Iraq. In addition, most senior Shi’ite clerics in Iran now have their own official websites.
