Here's my thoughts (please share yours):
Pro: It's popular, and it's the obvious uncontroversial choice. If we could make this work, it'd be great.
Con: It's wide. I tried to find a workaround, but that didn't work. It's probably going to look crammed , unless the smallest icon is abbreviated .
Maybe we need to declare this as impractical and move on to something else.
Pro: I expect this would be straightforward to implement. It's also popular.
Con: I feel "iffy" using Allah in a for-profit company icon. However, I'm not strongly against it.
Pro: It's simple, and you can see this design at mosques and halal restaurants. It also seems uncontroversial.
Con: What is it going to look like? It looks different on different devices. Will the icon look like a mushroom? [Maybe I'll try some mock-ups of this.]
- Pro: A lot of people already think this is an Islamic icon.
- Con: There is a reasonable argument that this is Sunni-centric. I think this is a reasonable objection, enough to make me think we should avoid it.
I don't like this one. It doesn't scream "Islam" to me. And it's similar to Buddhism.SE .
I guess doing nothing is indeed a possibility. It's probably not such a big deal, and it would prevent anyone being upset that their choice wasn't used.
