Islaamic Nasheed

Postby Shehzad Sattar » Mon Dec 19, 2016 11:22 pm

Question: A considerable amount of discussion has taken place with regards to ‘Islaamic Nasheeds’; some have given a formal, legal opinion of it being permissible, whilst others hold them to be an alternative to music. What is your opinion with regards to the above, your eminence?

Response: The phrase ‘Islaamic Nasheeds’ is incorrect, because it is a newly invented phrase. Hence, for this reason there are no such things [known as] ‘Islaamic Nasheeds’ in the books of the pious predecessors, and from the rulings of those who are considered and relied upon to be from amongst the people of knowledge.

Rather what is well known is that the Sufis [1] are the ones who have accommodated and incorporated these ‘Islaamic Nasheeds’ into their Deen, and they name this Deen of theirs as (السماع) ‘As Samaa’[2].

In this day and age, when different parties & groups have arisen and increased, this has resulted in all these groups & parties adopting their own fanatical zealous anthems which they have named as ‘Islaamic Nasheeds’. This labelling of ‘Islaamic Nasheeds’ has no authenticity or soundness [in our Deen]. Therefore, it is not permissible to accept these Nasheeds or to circulate and promote them amongst the people.

Allaah is the possessor of all prosperity & success.

الأناشيد الإسلامية

المرجع: مجلة الدعوة – رقم1632، تاريخ 05/03/1998

السؤال: سئل فضيلة الشيخ صالح الفوزان هذا السؤال: كثر الحديث عن الأناشيد الإسلامية، و هناك من أفتى بجوازها و هناك من قال إنّها بديل للأشرطة الغنائية فما رأي فضيلتكم؟

الجواب: هذه التسمية غير صحيحة و هي تسمية حادثة فليس هناك ما يسمى بالأناشيد الإسلامية في كتب السلف ومن يُعتد بقولهم من أهل العلم، و المعروف أنّ الصوفية هم الذين يتخذون الأناشيد دينا لهم و هو ما يسمونه بالسماع، و في وقتنا لما كثرت الأحزاب والجماعات، صار لكل حزب أو جماعة أناشيد حماسية قد يسمونها بالأناشيد الإسلامية، هذه التسمية لا صحة لها، وعليه فلا يجوز اتخاذ هذه الأناشيد و ترويجها بين الناس، وبالله التوفيق
