Welcome to the forums

Just a ward of warning - that link will probably be deleted as it contains music on your page

Hope you enjoy your stay here

Also Music is Haraam in Islam (forbidden), so it would be wrong to add words of the Adhaan to music like you have done,

I'll try and post more info on Music soon

Islam forbids secular music and musical instruments. This is not to say that Muslims have no such thing as song (a normal human expression) in their faith, there are many 'Islamic songs' in existence, known as Nasheeds (Arabic) or Naats (Urdu). Many Islamic gatherings are as vocal as traditional Christian churches, with Naats/Nasheeds replacing Hymns. But as far as secular and instrumental music go, then this is not acceptable to Islamic sensibilities.

What you did was an honest mistake, so no offense taken. But it isn't really such a good idea though, as it is sort of offensive.

Islamic naats/nasheeds can be found in many places, nasheeds are most famous as the English ones are called nasheeds, mainly because Arabic is the main Islamic language in the USA, not Urdu like Britian. Yusuf Islam, formerly called Cat Stevens, does them, although he has somewhat controversially moved back to popular music again, and does use instruments sometimes.

There are also a lot of more traditional Urdu naats. These ones are the ones that are often read (read is the proper word for naats, as they are poetry with rhythm like a song) in the Mosques I go to. Some of them are from the twelth century!

blimey, hardcore is right! made my heartbeat go crazy there (and not in a good way). it sounds like part of the call to prayer, the 'adhaan'. you may know that muslims pray 5 times a day, so the adhaan is heard in every masjid 5 times a day to summon the faithful to prayer. it is in arabic and very meaningful. search on youtube or google for 'adhaan' (or adhan) or 'muslim call to prayer' if you want to know more.

you mention on your page how music has such a profound effect on human emotions and actions. that, I believe, partly explains the extreme caution towards music in Islam. We believe we humans are here on this earth to worship God, and music is a pretty big distraction from that purpose.

peace

Possibly, I'm not sure. I was think of Mawlya (can't spell the name, it consists of words I have only heard and never read). I think it is the best naat.
