Possible dupe of: Question quality
Dear Islam.SE users: we are deluged with low-quality beginner questions. By "beginner" questions, I mean questions that, if you spent less than five minutes searching even Google, you would find the answer. Seriously.
Islam.SE and all SE sites are expert Q&A forums. The point is expertise; you ask really hard questions and get really good answers. Not your common day-to-day stuff that you can find out with, seriously a little googling.
I know you don't want to hear this. I don't want to either. But either we start down-voting beginner questions, or we lose the site. It's not something to take lightly. Other sites on Area51 were shut down due to a lack of quality questions (and quality includes, being sufficiently experty).
Nobody likes down-voting, especially me. I know we can do better. Please, lets make this site an expert site for hard questions, not a beginner site.
