Fann Al-Tarab

One has to always remember that Islam isn’t a religion; it’s a din, a way of life. It includes religious, political, economic, and cultural controls so as to totally bind and shape its adherents’ societies. This, as a matter of course, includes music.

Hence all Muslim music must fit within the cultural component of Islam and adhere to the basic mores and manners (Adab) espoused therein. Above we can see a faithful Muslim street musician doing just that. 😆

And we Americans thought that Rap “music” was bad! 😆
