Music and Islam don't mix.

7:40 PM

A lot of Muslims these days are becoming more Americanized and more of following culture instead of following what Islam says. They give themselves the titles of Muslims, but what does being a Muslim really mean and do you abide by it? Some "Muslims" make excuses and exceptions and throw things here and there thinking it's acceptable, when really the Satan/Devil is making you think it's acceptable. That's why Islam has many denominations: Sunni, Shi'a/Shiites, Sufi, Ahmadiyya, etc. But Islam isn't supposed to have all these denominations. You are supposed to abide by Allah's teachings in the Quran, the holy book for Muslims, and not go against or change what Allah has said. If you do you are not considered a Muslim. Not a moderate Muslim, not any type of Muslim. Religion would be easy if we could just make it the way we want it but it's not. You have to work to get to Jannah and not work to get to Hell. Just like to get an A+ (100%) on homework/tests/projects, what do you have to do? You have to work for it because if you don't chances are you aren't going to get a good grade. It just doesn't work that way. In my "About Me" tab, I said I was a Sunni Muslim. Yes, I've got sunnishine (ha, ha...get it? Like sunshine?). But really I'm just a Muslim. But if you taking it up with denominations, Sunni is the right path to go down. Sunni Muslims actually follow the Quran and the Hadiths (a book of what Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) did that we should follow). They don't change or add anything besides what the Quran and the Hadiths says.

For example, some "Muslims" make music and instruments halal/acceptable. Yea, you see a hijabi (a lady that wears a hijab/head covering) or Muslim on television listening to music or your friend wants you to listen to it or you're having a dance party. You think you got the groove on and the music is pumping loud? Yeah no.

 Music is haram/unacceptable. The only "music" that's acceptable is songs/nasheeds that contain the duff, tambourine, and your voice.  The duff and the tambourine are the only instruments acceptable in the Hadiths. And just because on YouTube it says nasheed, don't be fooled. Nasheeds are supposed to mean songs that only contain voice and no instruments in arabic but some "Muslims" try to trick us into listening it when they put instruments in it like the violin, piano, guitars, etc.  What's with that? I see bands like 786 (meaning Bismillah ir rahman ir rahim but putting it into numbers is against Islam), SHAM, Sami Yusuf, Hamza Robertson, and Native Deen and I'm just like whoa, what happened? It's totally haram/unacceptable. I've done that before by accident. Just don't be fooled. The Satan/Devil is trying to get into your head.

Just think about it. When you listen to songs (i.e. Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber), you feel like to dance and the music stays with you forever. You feel like you have no control over your body. It's true and it's pretty sad. You like hear a song from the store and right then and there you're like mesmerised and you know the lyrics word for word. But when it comes to the Quran, it takes time to memorized the Quran word for word. Isn't that sad...you know devilish songs but you can't even remember your own holy book? Listening to such songs is making your heart like a brick/stone wall , but the wall is just so overbearing and difficult to break through when you are reading the Quran,you feel annoyed by reading/listening the Quran after listening to all the music that has taken over your mind.Music has a way of holding onto your soul and never letting go so don't let it take hold of you my brothers and sisters.Be strong.

It just shows that you need to stay away from songs, especially ones that make you dance, are inappropriate, are about love, and just all of them that take control of you. Don't think that just because one song isn't going to harm you because you never know what Allah has planned. I saw on the news that somebody committed suicide because the Ozzy Osbourne song influenced him because the lyrics talked about comitting suicide. Look what music does to you? Now the parents of the boy are suing Ozzy Osbourne for singing about suicide.

Don't fall down that ditch, my Muslim friends. We need to stay strong to our iman (faith). Don't let go of it because once you do, you are playing with the burning fire of the Devil.
