ISLAMIC versus MUSLIM:
Our general guideline of what is allowed versus not on any of our media properties is not only based on the Muslim faith but is a universal one, that is to enjoin and encourage the good and forbid the wrong, that is anything that is illegal or immoral.
For clarification we have to differentiate between “Islamic” and Muslim Weddings? As there is no one definition, the following are our working definitions: ‘Islamic Wedding is one that conforms to Islamic laws, customs and values.’ This one represents a high ideal, and due to the vagaries of culture and time it is challenging to conform to and open to interpretation. PMW and it’s associated media properties besides providing valuable planning tools and information also contain fashion an art-form. By its very nature, fashion is subjective. ‘Muslim Wedding is by or about Muslims’ and affords a wider perspective. This website focuses on the latter. It is a discourse on beauty, belief and culture. It is not meant to proselyte or promote religion per se. It provides a platform to provide social commentary. In some areas, it ties into our common humanity, the universal language of beauty, freedom and love. Muslims come from all cultures and in that manner, eg some women wear Hijab and others do not. We try to be inclusive of everyone. Besides the blog the same applies to Social Media and the Web in general. All text, pictures and video is freely published by anyone and out there for viewing in the public domain. We do not and cannot control it. Besides the prohibited activities below, our general guideline, is to promote the dignity and beauty across Muslim cultures without questioning peoples faith.
Our Editors and Employees may or may not be Muslim. These guidelines are for them also. PMW may create and curate content. When curating third party content the general guideline is again to promote that which is beautiful and dignified as well as avoid anything which is sexual, promiscuous, and undignified. Third party content especially on Social Media may not be Islamic or Muslim, that is acceptable. Some Social Media channels like Pinterest and others target mainly a female audience as do most wedding sites. In this case it is acceptable to show eg Women’s nightwear, but not images that are provocative, vulgar, obscene, objectionable, contain nudity, obscenity, profanity, pornography, violence and anything that is lewd or offensive in nature or promotes harmful ideas about female sexuality that objectifies women.
Using ” women’s empowerment” as a way to glorify the female body as a sex object is not acceptable. We want to promote people being healthy and strong, not perfect. We want them to be kind to their bodies and loving accepting of who they are. We want to promote real weddings and real brides over models with hour glass figures. who are the archetype of physical perfection. These words and terms are not all encompassing and as long as the spirit and intent behind them is carried through, the work of PMW can lead to goodness, kindness, sharing, compassion, peace, beauty and more.
