Turkey: Directorate of Religious Affairs Considering Banning Imam From Preaching Because He Sings Rock Music

Turkey: Directorate of Religious Affairs considering banning imam from preaching because he sings rock music JAN 18, 2019 3:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER
Whenever I note that Islamic law forbids music (aside from nasheeds, a cappella songs encouraging jihad), I am excoriated as a greasy Islamophobe, but it’s nonetheless true: Hadith Qudsi 19:5: “The Prophet said that Allah commanded him to destroy all the musical instruments, idols, crosses and all the trappings of ignorance.” (The Hadith Qudsi, or holy Hadith, are those in which Muhammad transmits the words of Allah, although those words are not in the Qur’an.) Muhammad also said: (1) “Allah Mighty and Majestic sent me as a guidance and mercy to believers and commanded me to do away with musical instruments, flutes, strings, crucifixes, and the affair of the pre-Islamic period of ignorance.” (2) “On the Day of Resurrection, Allah will pour molten lead into the ears of whoever sits listening to a songstress.” (3) “Song makes hypocrisy grow in the heart as water does herbage.” (4) “This community will experience the swallowing up of some people by the earth, metamorphosis of some into animals, and being rained upon with stones.” Someone asked, “When will this be, O Messenger of Allah?” and he said, “When songstresses and musical instruments appear and wine is held to be lawful.” (5) “There will be peoples of my Community who will hold fornication, silk, wine, and musical instruments to be lawful ….” — Reliance of the Traveller r40.0
“Turkey: Liberal Imam on thin ice,” DW, January 17, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): If Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs, or Diyanet, gets its way, imam Ahmet Muhsin Tüzer will be forbidden from preaching in his small mosque because of his second love: Turkish rock music. Singing breaks a taboo.
