What did the Sahaba and Tabieen say about Music?


 Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَشْتَرِي لَهْوَ الْحَدِيثِ لِيُضِلَّ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَيَتَّخِذَهَا هُزُوًا ۚ أُولَـٰئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ مُّهِينٌ

“And of the people is he who buys the amusement of speech to mislead [others] from the way of Allah without knowledge and who takes it in ridicule. Those will have a humiliating punishment”

(Surah Luqman Verse 6)

What does Lahwal Hadeeth mean in this verse?

Let see what the Scholar Sahaba had to say about this verse:

Abdullah bin Mas’ud (r) (One of the greatest Sahabi and amongst the most knowledge able of the Quran) was asked, ‘What does lahv al-hadith mean in this verse ?” He said thrice emphatically. ‘By God! it means singing.” (Ibn Jarir, Ibn Abi Shaibah. Hakim, Baihaqi).

The scholar of the ummah,Abdullah  Ibn ‘Abbaas (r)[ The son of the uncle of Rasool Allah ] said: this means singing.

Lets see what the Tabieen (the generation after the) had to say about Lahval Hadeeth.

Mujaahid ibn Jabr (a tabai, student of ibn Abbas and the earliest Scholar of the Ummah) said: this means playing the drum (tabl). (Tafseer al-Tabari, 21/40).

Al-Hasan al-Basri (a famous tabai and a great scholar ) said: this aayah was revealed concerning singing and musical instruments (lit. woodwind instruments). (Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 3/451).

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The interpretation of the Sahaabah and Taabi’in, that ‘idle talk’ refers to singing, is sufficient.

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Among my ummah there will certainly be people who permit zinaa, silk, alcohol and musical instruments…” (Bukhari)

Mushriks of Makkah used singing and story telling to distract people from the Quran.


Mushriks of Makkah used singing and story telling to distract people from the Quran.

When the disbelievers of Makkah could not stop the message of the Holy Prophet from spreading in spite of their best efforts, Nadr bin Harith said to the people of Quraish:  Look! I will tell you how to deal with him.”

Then he left Makkah for Iraq and managed to get from there legends and tales about the kings of Iran and Rustam and Isfandyar and started to arrange tale-telling parties to distract the people from the Qur’an and to absorb them in the tales.

And according to Ibn ‘Abbas, Nadr had bough singing girls also for the purpose. Whenever he heard that someone was coming under the Prophet’s influence, he would impose a singing girl on him with the instruction: “Feed him and entertain him with your songs so that he is absorbed in you and distracted from the other side(Quran/Islam).”

[This is narrated in the earliest written Seerah of Muhammad (s) Sirat ibn Hisham who wrote it from ibn Ishaq] See Tafheemul Quran by Maulana Modudi here

The movies, soaps, dramas, concerts, cinemas, singing, CDS of today is what Nadr did 1400 years ago. Is this not enough for us to stop indulging in Music Movies Dramas and soaps?

Story of Prophet Muhammad and the First Wahi for Young Children


Assalamu Alaykum,

This was one of the first stories I narrated to my daughter when she turned 3. I kept the story simple and to the point. My focus is on Allahs love and mercy therefore I refrained from mentioning death. After hearing this story a number of times, soon she memorized the names of all the important personalities in the life of our beloved Prophet Sallallahu alayhe wasallam and also the first few verses of Surah Alaq.

I wrote down what I narrate to her and this is for the parents to read and narrate in their own words. Add lots of emotions and voice variations to make the story interesting and capture the imagination of the young child. Make sure to recite the Quranic Ayahs with proper tajweed and soon your little one will memorize it too.

May Allah accept this small endeavour from me and make it beneficial to all Muslim parents out there.

Just for inspiration and some laughs (you will know why when you listen) I am sharing this voice clip of me narrating this story when Aaminah was 3 years old.

Wsalam,

Umm Aaminah

Story of Ashaab e Kahf for Young Children


Bismillah

Assalamu Alaykum,
I have been narrating Stories from the Quran to my daughter since she was 3 years old. She is 4.5 now MashaAllah.

I used to narrate story of the Ashab e Kahf to her on fridays. I also love this Surah and tremendously enjoy its recitation by Mishari Rashid. I love to recite it as well.  Recently I started including actual verses of the Quran into the story of  Ashaab e Kahf.

She enjoyed the story tremendously MashaAllah and quickly memorized the dua of Ashab e Kahf. I decided to write down the story I narrate to her so other parents can benefit from it as well InshaAllah. May Allah accept from me.

Instead of the usual long long time ago beginning, i decided to narrate it as a Seerah event.How Prophet Muhammad sallalahu alayhe wasallam was asked about Ashab e Kahf by the Makkans. This will  InshaAllah result in developing a strong attachment and love for Muhammad sallahualayhe wasallam.

This story is meant to be narrated by the parent. It would be best for the parent to read this story, memorize the verses and narrate them in their own words, full of emotions. If the child is young, some details can be skipped. I hope you will find the story beneficial.
