  1. I have an interesting question, and I don't know if there's a definite answer, but wanted to throw it out to the ShiaChat community to see what everyone else thinks. So, I grew up listening to rap and hip hop in the 80s and 90s. Not just these genres, most musical genres, but my passion was rap and hip hop. I used to listen to a lot of music. I used to write rhymes. It was a lifestyle. I live in the West and a lot of people in my community listen to music. Probably the majority. Almost every one of my friends listens to music. Even the quote on quote religious ones. I gave up music years ago and don't regret it. But I do relapse every now and again, though ever so brief. Might just be a few songs, or it might be a week before I pull myself back and straighten myself out. At one point I got myself into "halal rap." If you know, you know. It's all over YouTube. I thought this was the perfect alternative and was enjoying myself for a little while with this. Then I reached a point where I thought to myself, what's the difference between the music I used to listen to, and this halal rap? Sure, the words are more focused on religion. But many of them had instruments behind the lyrics, and I decided that there really isn't much of a difference. If I viewed music as haram, then what I was listening to was also haram. At least it was for me. I'm guessing many others out there had the same sentiments because then came along halal rap with vocals only. With this form the artist uses only their voice to mimic musical instruments. My stint with this was short lived. I soon decided that this new 'vocals only' wasn't so holy, it was a loophole and completely phony. What's the difference between instruments and voices mimicking instruments? I really don't see a difference. Especially when you have these artists doing covers of haram songs with voices only and changing the lyrics. What a joke. Music is truly a test. Everyone's trying to find a way to make it okay. I talk to people and all I hear is, bro drums are halal, bro vocal only is okay, bro the lyrics are about Allah azwj and Islam, bro they don't play these at parties, bro it's not for entertainment it's like Islamic poetry, bro it's all about the deen... Bro, bro, bro. Stop it already. I'm honestly sick of it. And before someone says, bro just listen to Qur'an, let me say that I do listen to Qur'an, du'a, majalis, Islamic poetry, audiobooks, etc. However there are times when I just find myself gravitating towards some form of.. something. I don't even know the words to use. At this point in my life my alternative to music is Islamic spoken word. And even then, some of the stuff out there makes me wonder. But, I digress. And with this long lead up, here is my question: What do you all think of all this halal rap out there?
  2. Salam Alaykum brothers and sisters in Islam and equals in humanity. This is a poem I wrote and recorded this poem for this year's Arbaeen period. May Allah shower you all with blessings infinitely. Feedback and comments are appreciated.
