Iran: youth taught to shun fun; ‘enjoy’ economic war, jihad against kaffirs

Iran: youth taught to shun fun; ‘enjoy’ economic war, jihad against kaffirs

Emotional hostage-taking and indoctrination has enabled mullahs to control the minds of their populations from as young as they can remember….

Ultraconservatives dominating the Islamic Republic are calling on Iranian youth to find joy and fun in the “economic war” their country is engaged in. “Cheerfulness among youth will not materialize through illegitimate music and dancing of a handful of vagrant girls,” said Ayatollah Ahmad Alamolhoda, leader Friday prayers in Mashad, Iran’s second city.

The key phrase is “to find joy and fun in the economic war” that Iran now finds itself engaged in. The message in normative Islam is to fight, to kill, to wage jihad against any and every kaffir in the House of War to expand Islamic theology. Iran has been expanding its influence globally via its proxies and now that it is facing sanctions, its adherents are being instructed that any engagement in fun takes attention away from the mission of jihad (war).

Music and fun, are deemed to be haram in Islam in accordance with the Islamic Fiqh (jurisprudence)…..

r40.1 (Ibn Hajar Haytami:)

As for the condemnation of musical instruments,flutes, strings, and the like by the Truthful and Trustworthy (Allah bless him and give him peace), who “does not speak from personal caprice: it is nothing besides a revelation inspired” (Koran 53:3-4), let those who refuse to obey him beware lest calamity strike them, or a painful torment. The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) 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….”

“Declaring war against fun, joy, and music in Iran goes back to early days of the Islamic Republic, when its founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini banned all music from Iranian radio and television on July 23, 1979.” This edict however did not originate with the Ayatollah Khomeini. He was following the instruction of famous Shafi’i jurist Ibn Hajar Haytami from the latter’s 16th century edict, and the Khomeini was faithfully ensuring obedience to this edict in modern day Iran.

“Referring to the devastating eight-year war with Iraq”, Ayatollah Alamolhoda stated: “Joyous were the Iranian youth engaged in military battles, and the joy of our youth today is stepping into economic war”, which refers to the country’s struggle in the face of U.S. sanctions.  Here we see again the indoctrination of youth and harnessing within them a religious zeal to self sacrifice and engage in jihad against the ‘House of War’ (disbelieving nations). They are taught that bloody jihad is ‘fun’ and ‘joy’, not the ‘trivial pursuits’ of music and dance.

“Youth Should Enjoy The Hardship Of Sanctions, Suggests Cleric In Iran”, Radio Farda (Thanks to The Religion of Peace), May 25, 2019:

Ultraconservatives dominating the Islamic Republic are calling on Iranian youth to find joy and fun in the “economic war” their country is engaged in.

“Cheerfulness among youth will not materialize through illegitimate music and dancing of a handful of vagrant girls,” said Ayatollah Ahmad Alamolhoda, leader Friday prayers in Mashad, Iran’s second city.

This was a reference to videos that emerged earlier this month of schoolgirls dancing to rap – a social media phenomenon authorities are now investigating.

Sermons across the country by the representatives of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, on May 24, made similar calls.

Declaring war against fun, joy, and music in Iran goes back to early days of the Islamic Republic, when its founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini banned all music from Iranian radio and television on July 23, 1979.

Fresh back from exile, the 76-year-old cleric was conducting an audience with the employees of Radio Darya, a radio station that aired songs for holidaymakers heading to the Caspian shores of northern Iran.

“Music stupefies persons listening to it and makes their brain inactive and frivolous. Music is no different from opium,” the Ayatollah said.

Since then, Friday-prayer leaders have repeatedly stressed the necessity of following Khomeini’s guidelines.

Referring to the devastating eight-year war with Iraq, Alamolhoda said: “Joyous were the Iranian youth engaged in military battles, and the joy of our youth today is stepping into economic war”, which refers to the country’s struggle in the face of U.S. sanctions.

Despite such directives, Iranian youth have always found a way to ignore the government approach towards music and fun, taking music and dance underground – at great risk.

Social media has opened a new horizon for the Iranian youth to share their favorite music and dancing clips. And of course, many of them have paid the price for it.

In July last year, state TV aired the so-called confession of a teenage girl whose Instagram account had close to a million followers.

The clips showed 18-year-old Maedeh Hojabri dancing to Persian music or songs by artists such as Justin Bieber and Shakira.

In her so-called confession, Maedeh said that she did not intend to encourage others to copy her….
