Ilm Sieve: Islamic Search Engine

Look what I found! The very FIRST Islamic search engine on the Internet! People like to call Google, “Shaykh Google” but I think this is the only website that can be legitimately called “Shaykh Ilm Sieve”! 🙂

Check it out: www.ilmsieve.com

The whole concept is to have a Muslim-friendly search engine that doesn’t spew out anti-Islamic trash the instant you type in Islam or Muhammad. But that said, it only takes from websites that are Islamically safe and not contain any trash. You can even go and type in something filthy like “porn” and you will get links to Islamic websites that discuss this issue. Kind of funny but also very cool.

The other cool features this website has is:

-Install the IlmSieve search engine into your Firefox Browser

-Contribute websites that you think should be mentioned

-Report websites that sound fishy

-Give feedback about what you like or dislike about the website

The things that I didn’t really like about it:

-They aren’t very Sufi-friendly…citing only websites that are anti-tasawwuf, but I think the brothers who made this are still learning so it’s understandable. I know this will get some brother very angry but remember give your brothers 70 excuses!

-They don’t have this blog mentioned on their website! 😦

But they have a nice feedback section so I mentioned the above in their. I would encourage everyone to do the same! 🙂

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdik la illaha illa ant
