Firstly, I would like to thankyou for this wonderful and comprehensive website. Whenever I felt unsure, or disheartened about some other rulings on various matters, I consulted this site which put my mind at ease. It's not "way out there" like MWU! and it's not "way down there" like islam-qa.com
However, I do have some concerns regarding the authority on which you give your opinions on. I know you do not claim to be scholars giving fatwas, and that a lot of what you say is your "opinion" ... but you see, when discussing various matters with other people who give me say, a ruling from islam-qa and I show them something from here - they ask me, "Is the answerer a scholar?"
How would you respond to this?
What is your "islamic training" so to speak?
Also, your approach to issues tend to be a little liberal. What is your religious background in terms of ... i dont know, salafi, sufi, shia, sunni, modernist, progressive... in between?
