1. Create a new MS Word file. Before typing your answer please add the following information
on the first page:
? Student Name:
? Student ID:
? Course Name/Code:
? Assignment Question:
? Attempt Count: (1 or 2) [Type 1 if it is your first attempt. Type 2 if you are uploading a
revised version of your assignment after checking the plagiarism percentage.]
2. Please upload as a Word Document only; do not make a PDF file and upload it as this hampers
grading and giving comments on your work.
3. Before you upload, you should suffix your name to the file name along with the course code
and your attempt count. E.g., if a student is uploading AQD 101 assignment for the first time,
then the file name should be as follows: AQD101_FirstName_1
4. Students who wish to re-submit their assignments are requested to re-upload their
assignment files and change the attempt count. For example if the file name was
AQD101_firstname_1, you may rename it as AQD101_FirstName_2. Assignments re-uploaded
with the same file name as the original file will not be scanned well by the VeriCite system
resulting in the same similarity index value instead of reflecting the new percentage. After you
re-upload (which is your second attempt), please also email your course faculty, informing them
about it so that they can verify and grade your work accordingly.

IOU’S Plagiarism Policy
All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the universe and peace and blessing be upon the last
messenger Muhammad and all those who follow his path with righteousness until the Last Day.
Please read and understand this policy in details before attempting any assignments at IOU.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “He who deceives us is not one of us.” (Saheeh
Definition of Plagiarism:
A common form of deception in studies is plagiarism. Plagiarism is sometimes misunderstood to
refer to copying alone; however, plagiarism is much deeper than just copying. It includes
quoting without proper references, collaboration, and stealing other people’s ideas while
passing them off as one’s own. Plagiarism is the “failure to acknowledge the ideas or writing of
another” or “presentation of the ideas or writing of another as one’s own” and should be read
to cover intentional and unintentional failure to acknowledge the ideas of others. In this context
“others” means any other person including a student, academic, professional, published author
or other resource such as the Internet. The Islamic Online University believes that failing to
acknowledge the use of ideas of others constitutes an important breach of Islamic and academic
values and conventions of the institution.
IOU Stance on Plagiarism
The Islamic Online University will not tolerate plagiarism in any form, and any student caught
plagiarizing will be penalized. Depending on the severity of the plagiarism, the penalty could
range from reduction of marks to rejection of the paper itself.
With respect to the assignments, the following constitutes plagiarism:
1) Copying someone else’s assignment
2) Collaboration and working together on an assignment
3) Copying and Pasting entire articles of the internet
4) Quoting someone else’s work without referencing the author
5) Using someone else’s ideas or words without referencing them
To avoid plagiarism, be sure to:
? Use quotation marks around a quote and cite the source.
? Reference all quotations and citations
? Reword/paraphrase. Don’t write word for word what you have read. Take notes first in
your own words, then write your assignment from your notes (not the text).

You may also test your understanding of plagiarism by using this link:
IOU reserves the right to submit all academic assignments to a plagiarism checker to produce
similarity ratings for each assignment. The similarity indicator provides a rating of how similar
text in the assignment is to resources available on the Internet.
In line with universal academic writing practices, IOU prefers that text be paraphrased in the
words of the student and not quoted directly, with the original author of the knowledge being
duly cited and referenced.
As a University-wide norm, IOU recommends that the similarity indicator does not exceed 20%.
Result of Plagiarism
Assignments that contain a rating higher than 50% will be automatically rejected and validated
for plagiarism with a manual check by the tutorial assistant or relevant academic. The student
will be given a grade of 0 and there will be no second chances for submitting the assignment.
The Tutorial Assistant or relevant academic will use the similarity rating in determining the final
grade of the submission.
Remember that we are Muslims studying Allah’s religion, and so plagiarizing in Islamic Studies is
a sin and can rob your studies of reward.
May Allah bless you all with success with your coursework. Ameen.
