Policies and guidelines of Wikivahdat are as follows:


Considering the differences between the opinions of thinkers of different Islamic sects, the authors intend to use first-hand sources accepted by the two major Islamic sects (Shia and Sunni) as much as possible. In the meantime, the authors should refrain from any unscientific comments based on nervousness and blind support, and the content that is being uploaded on the domain of Wikivahdat, according to the policy of maximum unity among Muslims.

Another main policy of the authors in Wikivahdat is using the maximum amount of specialized content produced in the field of unity of the Islamic Ummah.


Wikivahdat guidelines are divided into four sections: Content guidelines, 2. Behavioral guidelines, 3. Editing guidelines, 4. Classification guidelines.

Content guidelines

The content presented in the form of Wikivahdat is a content in order to create the unity of the Islamic Ummah and to keep the single Islamic Ummah away from any blind prejudice-based differences and ignorance towards the followers of Islamic religions.

Classification guidelines

The contents of Wikivahdat are classified into issues, persons, currents, institutions, etc. that are active in the field of unity of the Islamic Ummah and rapprochement between Islamic religions. For prominent figures in the Islamic world the following are discussed in Wikivahdat:

- Biographies (including births and deaths, education, specialization, professors and students)

- His works including books and important works of that person or institution

- General proximity views (i.e. positions related to the possibility of approximation, its necessity and approximate solutions) - Specific proximity views of the individual or current or institution (i.e. proximity theories and constituencies, government, scholars, people, elites, as well as critique and analysis of opinions and theories in the field of proximity)

- Arguments in the field of proximity and unity (rational and narrative)

The first priority is on issues related to the unity of the above, and the following are the next priority:

- Scientific method used by the individual or collection

Discussion pages

Wiki pages and articles also have a discussion page where the user can inform the author or authors and editors of the article about the article.

There are templates that are placed at the top of the articles and provide users with brief information. By referring to the information box, the user can know the main and key information contained in the text of the article without reading the whole article.

There are templates that collect article-related links in horizontal boxes at the bottom of the article. These patterns sometimes appear vertically at the top of articles, but the relationship between the titles in these tables is transverse, meaning that all titles fall under one comprehensive title.
