HARMFUL EFFECT OF MUSIC: A CASE STUDY OF WIZ KHALIFA





By
Ibn Abdillah As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori

One American rapper, Wiz Khalifa wore a singlet with an inscription "Wasted Youth". He has tatoo all over his body. This is one of the people many children and young people now love so much and listen to in the name of entertainment. This is a youth who already admitted he is a waste. Music is a disease, it corrupts the mind effortlessly. Allaah says:


وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنْ يَشْتَرِي لَهْوَ الْحَدِيثِ لِيُضِلَّ عَنْ سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَيَتَّخِذَهَا هُزُوًا ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ مُهِينٌ

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. [Surat Luqman, 6]

In our world, it is difficult to differentiate Islamic (Muslim) gatherings from non-Muslim gatherings. Muslims are imitating the kuffaar in almost everything. So, we are now left with only Muslim names and the claim: "I am Muslim, I am a Muslim". Many People are just Muslim by mouth, and not by creed, speech and conduct. There is no difference between many Muslims and people of other faiths in terms of dressing and many other things. Many Muslims have made permissible for themselves what Islaam has prohibitted. One of such things is music.

You can hardly visit a Muslim event without listening to different kinds of music. You would see Muslim children, youths, parents dancing to songs of different kinds in a very crazy manner. This is a bad legacy. Go to weddings, namings and all kinds of events. Even during eids, this is what you will find in many Muslim gatherings. It is more worrisome that some people now claim to be Islamic musicians when music itself is haram according to Islamic injunctions.

Music is surely one of the lizard holes of the Jews ans Christians that Allaah's Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم had warned us about. Ibn ‘Abbaas رضي الله عنه said the words of Allaah in Q31:6 relates singing and use of musical intruments. This is also affirmed by Mujaahid رحمه الله that it means playing with the drum.[Tafseer al-Tabari, 21/40].

Al-Hasan al-Basri رحمه الله said: this aayah (Q31:6) was revealed concerning singing and musical instruments [Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 3/451].

Sheikh ul-Islaam, Ibn Taymiyah رحمه الله said: ma’aazif are haraam, and ma’aazif means musical instruments according to the scholars of (Arabic) language. This word includes all of such instruments. [al-Majmoo’, 11/535)].

In his explanation of that verse (Q31:6), Al Imaam As-Sa’di رحمه الله said:

This includes all manner of haraam speech, all idle talk and falsehood, and all nonsense that encourages kufr and disobedience; the words of those who say things to refute the truth and argue in support of falsehood to defeat the truth; and backbiting, slander, lies, insults and curses; the singing and musical instruments of the Shaytaan; and musical instruments which are of no spiritual or worldly benefit. [Tafseer al-Sa’di, 6/150]

I was in a Tricycle earlier this afternoon. The rider was playing some annoying music. I couldn't stop him. But I detest it in my mind. I later had to interrupt when some little little children started singing the stupid song along with the artiste, word for word. I had to tell them to stop singing it. I advised the rider to stop playing music, but he didn't listen. 

What baffled me most was that the mother of those children was in the vehicle with them, and she couldn't say anything. Probably, those children were not hearing the songs for the first time. Who knows whether that was part of what they listen to at home. Train your children to hate music, otherwise Allaah would question you if they are misguided. 

However, it is important to know that Allaah has the ability to change and rehabilitate whomever He likes. He changed and rehabilitated Amir Muhaddith ("Loon") and Fabulous. They have abandoned music for Sunnah. They are now practicing and committed Muslims. May Allaah help Wiz Khalifa and other people like him out of their satanic prisons.
