Taken from: http://www.turntoislam.com/forum/showthread.php?p=453484 This is not your average "Music is Haram" thread. I know this will come as a shock to most of you, it was great shock for me too. Subhan Allah, The so called Islamic Nasheeds, that brings tears to our eyes, and forms a substitue to listening to the Qur'an, is a GREAT misleader, as you will come to know after watching this lecture. May Allah bless this brother for conveying this very important knowledge. And Alhamdulillah for opening our eyes to this truth. Brothers and Sisters, I know this might be very hard for some of you. You might go "Ohh nooo!! Dont tell me that's haraam too" But there is a wonderful alternative to it, as the brother mentions. As for proof, he deals with that too. The lecture deals with the normal music, and "Islamic" Nasheed too. Please leave your comments only after you have watched the video lecture, for the brother adresses almost all the arguments we might have trying to defend the many "Islamic Nasheeds". Alhamdulillah once more for this. Only those believe in Our verses who, when they are reminded by them, fall down in prostration and exalt [Allaah] with praise of their Lord, and they are not arrogant. [Surah As-Sajdah 32:15] And when they hear what has been revealed to the Messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they have recognized of the truth. They say, "Our Lord, we have believed, so register us among the witnesses. [Surah Al-Maaidah 5:83] I've posted the videos here. In case they dont show up, the links are posted at the end of the post.
