      lol.
      I like how he hits the pavement wearing a t-shirt that says Progressive.

      It’s true, sometimes something hard needs to hit someone in order for them to realize that they’re wasting their time.

      Lol I like how he hits on those girls in abayas. It’s sad to say that that does actually happen.

      The hitting of non-mahram women in Saudia is reality brothers. I’m sad to say it, but it happens there. Alhamdulillah you guys did not hear of it or witness it.

    7. Muslim August 14th, 2007 at 8:31 pm

      actually that is not as bad as the gay men in Saudi. In my opinion that is worse.
      but both are haraam and wrong.

      These types of videos are actually common in the Arab world, perhaps not in Saudi. But what was uncommon and is now common in Saudi is showing women dressed in hijabs that are not covering their hair properly and all.

      Man that’s not a big deal. their are a lot more things we are doing that is worse then improperly positioned hijabs.

      I guess the Wahabi/Salafi dawah is not doing anything for the youth in Saudi, so I guess this is a way to help them, Insha Allah.

      Firstly can i start of by saying this is a music video which highlightes some of the problems within the saudi regime! but from what i gathered it was not sending this message just to saudis but to all muslims in every part of the world! you will get free mixing in saudi and in any other muslim country so you really got to stop all thinking they should all be pious and fear allah because they happen to live in the same country where the holy city is!

      ok now Luqman your post was suggesting that the salafi dawah or what your kind may know it as the ” wahabi movement” is to blame for this problem within saudi? You started off straight away with criticism! you based your whole decision on this lame video!

    11. Mujahideen Ryder August 15th, 2007 at 8:40 am

      Ahmed, I’m confused, first you said the video is unrealistic and then now you say it’s sending a message to all Muslims ni the world? Hahah, iz all good akh. I agree with you in the message sending. The only reason I made a big deal about it in Saudia, is because it was made there and most likely be popular there.

    12. ahmed.a.a August 15th, 2007 at 9:48 am

      no no akhi you misunderstood me , the music video from my opinion is not what i consider a good reminder for muslims even though it attempts to, i said the video is not just concentrating on problems with muslims in saudi but rather around the world so i assumed who ever was behind the video would rather target all muslims than just saudis but that does not mean im standing up appaulding the creators of this video bro lol and brother may i say this is not the first music video from saudi there have been few low key ones in the past , anyways the sheiks in saudi are doing all they can to bring the goverment around and implement sharia more efficiently inshallah.

    13. Mujahideen Ryder August 15th, 2007 at 9:59 am

      According to Yahoo News it was the first Music Video. I think the people who edited and directed the video didn’t focus on Saudi, but just Young Muslim men in general, but it was filmed in Saudi to place emphasis there to show that even in Saudi.

      I think the parents, ulema, and elders of Saudi should provide healthier and halal alternatives in Saudi for the youth such as sports or interactive stuff, like paintball or something.

    14. GoogleygooiZdaSpook August 15th, 2007 at 12:03 pm

      right, the focus was not persay Saudi, but the youth in general, riiight, what about a music video about the real face of saudi regime? The guise was progressivism, but just like the youth here and the much larger communities in general, we see the lack of any real attachment to higher ideals because clear hypocrisy is visible. At least thats my argument.
      You wanna talk to me about by my beard? What about your missiles and secret weapons contract deals??!
      Secondly, I think someone earlier has alluded to this, what ExAcTly is this video-music implying here? That I can engage in all forms of hedonistic behaviors and vice, and ~THEN I can go to the straight path?!. This music video seems more like a user’s manual/guide from the devil.
      Actually I was a bit harsh. This video is quite accurate for portraying the truth. This music video is a documentary because it portrays the eventual success of the university student big-pimpin demselves and finally found Allah swt after graduation.
      I may lack sufistication and intellect of modernist/progressivist, maybe a backward-gonowhere traditionalist or an ignant-najdi-salafi, but one thing I can say is that this video may be in vein and sadly a bit(waay?) too late.

      Wolf in sheeps clothing man.

      Some people need to chill. There is no Ijma’ on music and anytime you see a Muslim listening to music you must assume they follow the weaker opinion that says it’s halal. As for the hitting on Saudi girls in abayas, Allah knows best but sometimes people need to see how ugly they are in a mirror before they know they have done wrong. Assuming you follow the Hanafi madhhab, I saw nothing wrong with it.
      If they did sin, may Allah forgive them.

      i can assue you imam abu hanfina and all the other imams of the school of thought all agreed music is haram!full stop!

      I think you need to see the state of the youth in this time and age, especially in the non-Western countries, where the youth are becoming worse as they attempt to copy the west…in order to understand the importance of this video, and the strong message its sending. Yes, some of the clips you may find disturbing, such as the smoking…hitting on girls, the motorbike race, the wedding scene (that made me cringe, lol)…but this is exactly wats happening out there…so wen a kid watches it…he thinks OMG look at me, i do that and its so wrong (well iA thats wat they think).
      If the Saudis were to make a non-music video with no such in-your-face scenes, then they wud be attracting a totally diff audience..as the kids who are into music wont find this video worth watching. However, by making it the way it is, iA it attracts the young lost youth, and iA it helps us all become more aware and better iA.

      holy canoli! are you kidding?? This is a HUGE deal! Women wearing hijabs improperly is just the first crack. I’ve heard that some are starting to take beta carotene so their eyes shine brighter and actually look attractive thru their full coverings! disgusting! this is a huge problem for our society!

      And I assume you know of the dissertation written and submitted for peer review by imam Ibn Sao Wott in the 16th century concerning this issue. All scholars in the National Academy of Guys with Beards agreed with him. They said “so what?”

    20. Ibraheem August 18th, 2007 at 2:22 pm

      There is a Maliki opinion by ibn Hazm that Music is disliked though it is highly contested. The only way you can say it is halal is by mixing madhabs but what else can you do?

    21. Ibraheem August 18th, 2007 at 2:25 pm

      I’m just doing my best to do Hasn al-dhan so I have to make as many excuses as possible.

      A Saudi Dissident? a disenfranchised muslim? or an American living in Saudi who is non muslim?

      good song

    24. Abu Abdu Rahiman September 10th, 2007 at 10:56 am

      Listening to music and singing is a sin and cause for the sickening and weakening of the heart. The majority of the scholars of the Salaf are unanimous that listening to music and singing and using musical instruments is Haram (prohibited).
      Evidence that Music and Singing are Haram

      1. Allaah said, what translated means, “And of mankind he who purchases idle talks to mislead (people) from the Path of Allaah without knowledge, and takes it (the Path of Allaah) by way of mockery, For such there will be a humiliating torment.” [31:6].

      Al-Wahidi , along with other scholars of Tafsir (explaining the Qur’aan), said that “Idle Talk” in this Ayah is singing. The following companions gave this Tafsir: Ibn Abbas, Ibn Masud, Mujahid and Ikrimah . Ibn Masud said, “By Allaah, whom there is no God except Him, idle talk is singing.”

      2. The Prophet said (which means), “From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. And there will be some people who will stay near the side of a mountain and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, ‘Return to us tomorrow.’ Allaah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and He will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection.” [Al-Bukhari Volume 7, Book 69, Number 494v].

      This Hadeeth states that musical instruments are Haram, and there is no disagreement among the scholars on this. In his book, Ighathat Al-Lahfan, Ibn Al-Qayyim said, “When the Prophet said, ‘render as lawful,’ he meant that it was unlawful, then the people made it lawful.”

      3. Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet said, what translated means, group of this nation will be transformed into monkeys and swine.” They said, “Do not they testify that there is no god except Allaah and that Muhammed is His Messenger?” He said, “Yes. And also they fast pray and perform Hajj.” They said, “Then, what is their problem?” He said, “They use musical instruments, drums and female singers. (One day) they will go to sleep after a night of drinking and having fun, In the morning, they will be transformed (by Allaah) into monkeys and swine.” [Iughathat Al-Lahfan].

      4. Allaah said, criticizing the Kuffar’s worship around the Kaa’bah, what translated means, “Their prayer at the House (Kaa’bah) was nothing but Muka’an and Tasdiyah.” [8:35]. Ibn Abbas, Ibn Umar, Atiyyah, Muj ahid, Ad-Dhahh’ak, AlHasan and Qatadah said that Muka’an means whistling, and that Tasdiyah means clapping of hands.

      ——————————————————————————–

      Sayings of the Scholars Regarding Music and Singing
      Imam IbnTaymiyyah said, “Listening to music and sinful fun are among what strengthens the satanic ways the most. This is exactly what the disbeliever’s used to do. Allaah said, And their prayer at the House (of Allaah) was nothing but Muka ‘an and Tasdiyah. [8:35]. Ibn Abbas, ibn Umar and others said that Tasdiyah is clapping of hands, and that Muka’an is whistling. This was the Mushrikeen’s way of worship. The Prophet and his companions worshipped Allaah , according to His order, in their prayer, reading the Qur’aan and Dhikr (supplication). It never occurred that the Prophet and his companions gathered to listen to singing that is accompanied by clapping or using drums.”

      Imam Ibn Taymiyyah also said regarding the person, whose habit is to listen to music, “His state of emotions becomes less passionate when he hears the Qur’aan. On the contrary, when he listens to instruments of the devil (music), he dances a lot. If the prayer is established, he either prays while sitting down or performs it as fast as when the roaster picks seeds. He dislikes listening to the Qur’aan and does not find beauty in it while reciting it. He has no taste for the Qur’aan and feels no love for it or pleasure when it is read. Rather, he finds pleasure if he listens to Mukaa’ or Tasdiyah. These are satanic pleasures and he is among those whom Allaah mentioned in the Ayah, And whosoever turns away from the remembrance of the Most Beneficent (Allaah), We appoint for him Satan to be a companion for him. [43:36].” [Awliyaa' Ar-Rahman].

      Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim said, “Of the tricks of the enemy of Allaah, Satan, that he uses to trap those who do not enjoy much intelligence, knowledge or sincerity in religion, are M ukaa’ and Tasdiyah. These people of ignorance listen to and use musical instruments that are prohibited and which lead the hearts to abandoning the Qur’aan. These hearts are indulging in sin and disobedience of Allaah. Music, then, is Satan’s Qur’aan and the barrier between one and Allaah. It is the way to sodomy and adultery. With it, the lover finds what he seeks and dreams of sinful love. Satan has trapped the weak hearts in the love of singing and made it beautiful to them. Satan reveals to his agents’ fake proofs that they use as evidence to the beauty of singing. These people accept Satan’s revelation and, as a consequence, abandon the Qur’aan. When you witness them while listening, you will find them silent in humbleness, sitting idle and their hearts are concentrating and totally enjoying music and singing. Their hearts will feel closer to music, as if they were drunk. They dance and move in a suggestive manner, like faggots and whores. And why not? They are drunk with the pleasure of listening to music and singing and act accordingly. For other than Allaah, and for Satan, there are hearts that are being broken by sin, and fortunes that are being spent for other than Allaah’s Pleasure. They spend their lives in joyful fun and make a mockery of their religion. Instruments of the devil are sweeter to their ears than the Qur’aan. If one of them listens to the Qur’aan from beginning to end, it will have little effect or excitement on him. If Satan’s Qur’aan is being performed and heard, they feel joy in their hearts and one can see it in their eyes. Their feet dance, their hands clap, their breathing intensifies and the rest of their bodies feel joy. O you who are trapped in this sin, you who have sold your share of Allaah to Satan, what a losing deal! Why not feels this joy when you listen to the Qur’aan? Why not feel pleasure and comfort when the Glorious Qur’aan is recited? But, everyone seeks what he feels is suitable for him, and ends up with what is really suitable for him.” [Ighathat Al-Lahfan].

      Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Baz was asked about listening to music and songs, “Is it Haram? I only listen to it for pleasure. What about playing the Rababah (a kind of guitar) and old songs? What about using drums in weddings?”

      Sheikh Ibn Baz said, “Listening to music is Haram and a sin. It is a matter that leads to weakening the hearts and abandoning the Dhikr of Allaah and the prayer. The scholars said about the Ayah, And of’ mankind he who purchases idle talks [31:6], that idle talks means singing. Abdullaah ibn Masud , the Prophet’s companion, used to swear by Allaah that it is singing. If singing is accompanied by the Rababah, ‘Ud (Arabic guitar), fiddles or drums, it is even more Haram. Any singing with any instrument is Haram and the scholars are unanimous on this. Therefore, Muslims must be aware of it. The Prophet said, “From among my nation there will be those who render as lawful adultery, silk (for men), AI-Khamr (alcohol) and musical instruments.” [Al-Bukhari]. I advise you and others to read the Qur’aan and keep remembering Allaah. I advise you to listen to Qur’aanic programs on the radio. This way, one will find pleasure and will keep busy so he can stay away from music and songs. As for weddings, the Daff (tambourine) can be used along with innocent singing that does not call to sin. This can be done at night, only in weddings and only by and for women. These songs are a way of announcing an Islaamic marriage. The Sunnah of the Prophet supports the above. As for the drums, they are Haram all the time. The Daffis permitted in weddings and only for and by women.”

      Many Muslims today render music as permissible. This is due to their ignorance or outright defiance of the religion. We ask Allaah that we are among those who listen to the speech and follow the best of what it contains. These are the ones whom Allaah has guided and granted them the bounty of sanity and comprehending minds.
