I saw this question that contains tag which I replaced with

Is it haram to hang up a picture of Manchester City badge?

Why do we have two tags?

Should we keep them ?

1 Answer 1


This is what I propose. Seems logical.

: shall be used for questions which are asking whether the stated is halal or haram.

and : shall be used in questions where the person knows that the stated is halal/haram, and want to know the reason of and/or the source of that rule/law.

  • This seems to be a good line of division. Is there really a reason to keep "halal" and "haram" separate though, or should they both be slaved to some sort of "explain-this-rule" sorta tag?

  • I can't foresee any utility of keeping them separate per se. I'm up for making it slaves to "explain-this-rule" kinda tag. "reason-for" or "reason" seems good. Commented May 21, 2014 at 18:41
  • Now that I think of it, that might be a good use for "islamic-rules" which is also rather ambiguous.

  • Frankly I almost randomly choose between "islamic-rules" and "islamic-law" can't see their difference as such. Commented May 21, 2014 at 19:26
