Music is characteristic
of almost every religion. It may be holy, as with the Psalms of David, or it may
be demonic, as with Druid Witchcraft music. Islam has no music. There is no song
book, no singing at the mosque, and Islam is not in the everyday music of the
Muslim. The only music in the Middle East is a compromise of the teaching of Mohammed,
and many Arab writers are now trying to justify music without offending Mohammed.
This is very strange for a religion that claims to be an extension of the Bible.
This will be a short section because Mohammed had no patience for music:
Mohammed'S DISLIKE OF MUSIC
Hadis, Book 2, Chapter 12, No. 21, Abu Omahmah reported that the apostle of Allah
said: 'Sell not singing girls, nor buy them, nor train them, and their price is
unlawful...' Attested by Ahmed, Ibn Mahjah
Hadis, Book 2, Chapter 12, NoNo. 283, Abu Omahmah reported that the Messenger
of Allah said: 'None raised up his voice with a song but Allah sent him two devils
upon his shoulders who beat his chest with their heels till he stopped.' Attested
is grossly arrogant for the Mullahs to praise Jesus as a good prophet, for he
sang hymns at the Last Supper. This means Jesus had two devils. This illustrates
the double minded ways of Islam. They praise and flatter in one breath and damn
with the next.
Bible, Matthew 26:30 And when they (Jesus and his disciples) had sung an
hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
Hadis, Book 2, Chap. 10, No. 4, Abu Hurairah reported that the Messenger of Allah
said: 'Bells are the singing instruments of the devil.' Attested by Muslim.
What a jolly fellow. How did Mohammed get such a sour attitude toward music?
He tolerated singing only at non-religious festivals, but there was no singing
at prayer times, at the mosque, or in any religious events. Musicians were of
no interest to Mohammed.
Hadis, Book 2, Chapter 12, NoNo. 20, Na'fe reported: I was with Ibn Omar
on a journey. He heard the sound of a flute and put his fingers into his ears
and turned to go another way. Then he said to me after we walked some distance:
'O Na'fe! do you hear anything?' I replied: 'No.' Then he took his fingers out
of his ears and said: 'I was with the Messenger of Allah. He heard the sound of
a flute and did what I have done.' Attested by Ahmed, Abu Daud.
Mohammed was very superstitious, so he feared strange sounds. His fear of music
shows that Islam had no power to change the culture of its day. Even now, the
chief culture of Islam is rooted in Pre-Islamic Bedhoin culture.
Hadis, Book 2, Chap. 12, No. 25, Qatadah reported that the Messenger of Allah
said: 'Allah never sent a prophet who had a sweet voice.' Attested by Tirmizi.
It is a dull prophet who cannot tolerate music under the inspiration of God
as in the Psalms of David. Worse, this paranoid Mohammed attacked any prophet
who didn't hate music like he did.
BIBLE SANCTIFIES AND DEMANDS MUSIC
FROM THE BELIEVER
Bible, Psalms 40:1-3, I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me,
and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry
clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put
a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear,
and shall trust in the LORD.
Those who truly belong to God have a song in their mouth which God put there!
If Mohammed had no song in his mouth for Allah, then we must assume that Allah
and Mohammed were not of the same mind as Jehovah.
Jesus was a singing Savior as we see next:
Bible, Matthew 26:30, And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount
This was the night before Jesus was to be crucified, yet He wanted to sing praises
Apostle Paul told the Church that they MUST sing:
Bible, Ephesians 5:18-19, And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be
filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual
songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
This is why Bible believing churches today have books of spiritual songs always
ready to sing, and Christians have sung at the worst of times as Paul and Silas
did in prison:
Bible, Acts 16:25, And at midnight Paul and Silas (who were in prison) prayed,
and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
Mohammed lied when he claimed that there are no singing prophets, how about Habakkuk?
Bible, Habakkuk 3:1, Speaking of his own prophecy-- A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet
upon Shigionoth (musical instrument).
19, The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and
he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed
prophet Habakkuk even invented the instrument to accompany the prophecy he gave
We have seen that Mohammed's claim, that he extended the Bible by His revelations
in the Koran and Hadith, is impossible since the God of the Bible gave much of
his revelation to be set to music. Jesus loved to sing, as did the Apostles. Allah
is a god of no melody, indeed, no sweet voice comes from the god of the sands
of Arabia! What a sterile and cold faith which cannot put its joys, hopes, and
doctrines into song! Allah cannot be the God of the Bible, because the God of
David and Solomon ordered us to sing about Jehovah:
The Bible, Psalms
104:33, I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my
God while I have my being.
Bible, Psalms 105:2, Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his
Bible, Proverbs 29:6, In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare:
but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
By discouraging and forbidding singing of praise to Allah of Islam, Mohammed showed
us that Allah and Jehovah God of the Bible are mutually alien to one another.
Since Mohammed forbid the Muslims to sing of their faith, we must agree with Solomon
in the last text above, Mohammed is "an evil man," and in his doctrine "there
is a snare."
