My suggestion is that you should limit the number of questions posted on the basis of how many you can answer in a reasonable time
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Brother Burhan, Salam
My suggestion is that you should limit the number of questions posted on the basis of how many you can answer in a reasonable time. The current situation is that people around the world keep submitting questions and at any time the number of un-answered questions are in thousands. We understand that as a human being you have certain limitations and it is not possible to answer all the questions within few days. So why don`t you limit the number of questions per day so that you can answer them with convenience. I have observed that most other Islamic sites use a limiting factor on the number of questions that can be posted.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Limit Questions on site
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, may Allah Subhanah bless and reward you for your valuable suggestion and advice in your efforts to enhance and support our humble efforts. It is indeed true that at times it is not humanly possible to answer all the questions that are asked on this humble forum promptly, and it did occur to some brothers that maybe we should put a ceiling to how many questions can be asked per day so that each query of our esteemed brothers and sisters seeking knowledge in the deen are answered promptly.
The only thing that stopped the moderators from following this path of limiting questions was that at times, some matters asked require absolute immediate responsesespecially if they relate to marriage, divorce, inheritance, faith, or even in some extreme cases, where one is so distressed with the trials of life that he/she is contemplating suicide or murder!
Beloved brother, we assure you that we are doing everything in our capacity and capability to answer all the questions received on the forum on a timely basisbut invariably, in spite of our best efforts, we always fall short and are unable to do justice and serve our beloved brethren to their satisfaction. We sincerely and humbly seek the forgiveness of our beloved brethren and of our Lord Most Merciful for our severe shortcomings in the service of His Deen and we assure you that we shall redouble our efforts to improve the situation.
Beloved brother, may Allah Subhanah bless and reward you for your genuine concern and your invaluable comments and suggestion that help us to further serve in the noble Cause of our Merciful Lord, albeit in this most insignificant and humble way. We humbly seek your understanding and your forgiveness and the forgiveness of our Lord Most Gracious for our severe shortcomings, and in all humility and fear hope and pray that our Lord Most Merciful will accept our humble efforts in spite of all our shortcomings, and take us not to account for something which is beyond or capacity.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
