Help with item[edit]

Can someone that speaks Arabic add some more information to Tulul al Hammam (Q21091615). It is a place in Jordan and the mineral tululite (Q19862359) is named after it. Shukran! --Tobias1984 (talk) 09:08, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

@Tobias1984: I modified the description and added coordinates to the item. --Meno25 (talk) 05:31, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Wikidata list[edit]

Can someone create Template:Wikidata list (Q19860885) on ar-wiki? --Tobias1984 (talk) 22:50, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

@Tobias1984: ✓ Done ar:قالب:قائمة ويكي داتا. --Meno25 (talk) 05:37, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
@Meno25: Thanks! I tried it out ( but the bot still has problems recognizing the templates. --Tobias1984 (talk) 08:23, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
@Tobias1984: The template on arwiki is identical to the version on enwiki. I only translated the text. So, it may be a bug in the bot code. --Meno25 (talk) 09:43, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Missing labels, descriptions[edit]

You may contact @باسم: or @Muhends: who are Arabic Wikipedians active on Wikidata about this. --Meno25 (talk) 05:40, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

House of Saud[edit]

Hi Topias, Is it posible to add :

@Helmoony: Will try to this after I connected the author pages on ar-wikisource with the correct items. Sorry for editing your comment, but I think it is good if the labels are shown. --Tobias1984 (talk) 11:30, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
@Tobias1984: Something new? --Helmoony (talk) 16:32, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

ARWikibooks to Wikidata[edit]

Hi @Tobias1984: @Meno25: @FShbib: @ASammour: @وهراني:, is it possible to take a look at arwikibooks and add export links to wikidata, because actually they are articles linked to other versions but the arlink in wikidata doesn't exist. --Helmoony (talk) 17:30, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

@Helmoony: ar:User:Majed has the code to do this. You may want to ask him this request. --Meno25 (talk) 21:25, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
Hello :) I have started working on it today. I will let you know if there is any further update. Majed (talk) 09:30, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Can we merge ?[edit]

Hello, can someone with some knowledge of Arabic understand what is the difference between ar:ميتفورمين هيدروكلورايد and ar:ميتفورمين ? As I understood this is the same molecule. Please ping me if you have some info. Thanks Snipre (talk) 08:27, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

@Snipre: Thanks a lot for your remark! You are fully correct; both of the artilcles are talking about the same compound, which is used as a drug for diabetes treatment. One of the articles is right now a redirect to the other. Best Regards --Sami Lab (talk) 14:41, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Recent deaths[edit]

At Wikidata:Database reports/Deaths at Wikipedia, we attempt to import values for date of death (P570) from various language versions, including Of the dates left, currently about 10% are from Arabic. For the years 1966 to 1990, almost all of them: Summary/2.

If you are interested in adding them, there is a tool at It loads the article (partially or fully) and highlight dates. A simple click on a date adds it to Wikidata. BTW it doesn't handle Islamic dates, but these don't seem that frequent in these articles.
