    Grief got a reaction from ZahiK in Is All Music Haram?   
    Monopoly is halal, do you think Imam Mahdi(atf) plays it? No. This thread is about fiqh and not reaching the higher levels of piety.
     
    There are many things that are halal that our Imams (as) didn't or wouldn't do that we do. He was asking a fiqh based question and I gave him a fiqh based answer.
     
    The discussion of spiritual ascension is a completely different one that talks about staying away from even things that happen to be halal, etc., but that is going off-topic because it does not relate to the question he asked.

    First, it's good that you are asking these questions. I used to ask these questions when I came to Islam and it helped me see the truth of this religion.
     
    Second, can I ask you to please get your post count to 50 so that I can PM you! :P .
     
    Third, answer your question more directly...
     
    No all music is not haram.
     
    All music with bad themes or music that negatively impacts your mental state (like party music) is haram. Music that doesn't have bad themes is halal.
     
    For example, classical music is halal.
     
    The notion that all music is haram comes from the other school in Islam and not ours.
     
    Quick examples of halal music (Sorry for the large amount of Blackmill... I love Blackmilll; He's great :P ):

    Grief got a reaction from Rightly Guided Benefactor in Isaiah   
    It is sad that some people do not take time to investigate the facts about what is truly going on in Israel and how those criminals are disobeying God while people like you and your friend sit in the USA, free from the troubles of the oppressed in Palestine. May God guide you and may God destroy those oppressors that will never have anything to do with our beloved prophet Jesus (AS) or Moses (AS).

    Too bad Israel isn't going to listen to this. You seem to live in dreamland where everything is perfect.
     
    In reality, things are very different.
    A thief (that isn't stealing out of necessity) doesn't really care about Jesus's command, now does he?
     
    So what are you going to do? Go to the authorities? Okay, but if the authorities are meant to love their enemies, they should forgive the thief for taking your house and let him keep it.
    I couldn't care less about Christian fiction.
    What I am asking is this:
    Do you, as a self-respecting human being, condone the killing of innocents in Palestine by Zionist leaders and allowing these criminals to snatch land, kill children and destroy families with no penalty imposed on them? Yes or no?

    Genesis 3:19 - By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food till you return unto the ground; for out of it were you taken: for dust you are, and unto dust shall you return."
     
    SubhanAllah. Sometimes when I read the Bible, I can see that the same God that wrote the Quran wrote it. You can just feel  in your heart that the books of God were written by the same author.
     
    This is the symbolism of us praying on dust (Earth tablets) as you can see here:
     

     
    The tablet that is in front of him is what we prostrate on. It is made of compacted Earth. When we rise from prostration the first time, it symbolises our creation and emergence from the Earth (just as the Bible stated above), then, the short few seconds that we are in a sitting position between the two prostrations that are present in a prayer, we say "Astaghfirullah ha rabbi wa a'tuubu ilayh" meaning "I seek forgiveness from my lord and I am repentant towards him". This symbolises our lives, the sole purpose of which is to repent unto God and ask for his forgiveness. It also shows how short life is.
     
    Our Prophet (pbuh) was asked once, "what is life?" and he replied "the distance between two prostrations".
     
    Then, we go down into the second prostration after the repentance which symbolised our lives. This portion represents our death and how we will return to this Earth and become dust once again, just as we were given rise through it.
     
    Then, rising from this prostration symbolises our final rise on the Day of Judgement, when we will be brought back to life to be judged once again, but we don't go back into prostration after this. We stand up instead. This shows how the afterlife is eternal  and how we never die when we are present in it, while this life only lasts the few seconds between the two prostrations.
     
    I thought it was interesting to see the parallel. Thanks for sharing your quote about arrogance as well. It is a good reminder.

    "Do not walk proudly on the land, as your feet cannot tear apart the earth nor are you as tall as the mountains." Quran 17:37.

    Marriage is not all about halal or haram or "THIS IS MY RIGHT", etc. These are guidelines, but the general essence of marriage as portrayed by Islam transcends fiqhi rulings... They are the base, but the true purpose is much higher than the dry substance that forms this base...
     
    Islam gives the general description of a marriage as a partnership in which both partners are understanding of each other and their situations (financially or otherwise) and are supportive of each other and generous and kind towards each other and forgiving of each others' lapses.
     
    They [your wives] are clothing for you and you are clothing for them. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He accepted your repentance and forgave you. So now, have relations with them and seek that which Allah has decreed for you.
     
    So the woman should try and be a little understanding of the husband's wishes and possibly his financial situation and bear with her not getting her wishes until a more suitable time. Marriage is not a tug or war nor is it a blame-match nor is it a competition for superiority over one another.
     
    Compassion, understanding, love and compromise.
