View Full Version : Why Islam prohibits music?

Music induces hypocrisy, vice, neglect, vanity and a host of other attendant evils in the human being, the worst of which is its insidious ability to turn a person away from remembrance of Allah, His Book and His deen.

Imam Ibn Taymiyyah :rh: said regarding a person whose habit is to listen to music, "His state of emotions becomes less passionate when he hears the Qur'aan. On the contrary, when he listens to instruments of the devil (music), he dances a lot. If the prayer is established, he either prays while sitting down or performs it as fast as when the roaster picks seeds. He dislikes listening to the Qur'aan and does not find beauty in it while reciting it. He has no taste for the Qur'aan and feels no love for it or pleasure when it is read. Rather, he finds pleasure if he listens to Mukaa' or Tasdiyah. These are satanic pleasures and he is among those whom Allaah mentioned in the Ayah, And whosoever turns away from the remembrance of the Most Beneficent (Allaah), We appoint for him Satan to be a companion for him. [43:36]." [Awliyaa' Ar-Rahman].

Brilliant post bro AbiruSabeel.

I think we should also promote the beauty of the Qur'an and Islam - starting with the adhan and its effects on non Muslims in sha Allah.

Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Lyndsey Lohan, and many more celebrities have expressed they find the call to prayer, comforting and soul centering.

I am reminded of the ayah, "verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest" 13:28

I wonder sometimes, if they have the good sense to recognise truth when they hear it, though? I mean, Morgan Freeman is an atheist, and recently made that documentary about belief. So I do not expect any change of heart there - what I find deplorable though is how he will take what he wants from our deen and leave the rest - as in his comment about the call to prayer being nice. There aint no such thing as an half way atheist :D These guys don't know what they want. They just like to "be" - and "not be questioned"... they abrogate their own existence and they do not know it. Flip flopping between conflicting opinions and then claiming "I don't have all the answers" - lol - their excuses do not reflect sound reasoning. Is the atheist really all that intelligent? After watching Morgan Freemans documentary, I would have to say no.
