Singing Not in Accordance With Islam: Grand Mufti


Amid support for the all-girls rock band of Kashmir pouring in from all sections of the society, Grandmufti of Jammu and Kashmir Bashiruddin Ahmad today termed singing as “un-Islamic” and asked them to abandon it.

The Grandmufti issued a decree here today, terming singing as un-Islamic.

“I have said that singing is not in accordance with Islamic teachings,” Ahmad told PTI.

The cleric said he has advised the members of the rock band to “abandon” singing as it is against Islamic teachings and will not help them in playing any constructive role in the society.

“Society cannot be built or developed by doing un-Islamic acts like singing. I have advised these girls, and other Muslims as well, to stay within the limits of modesty as prescribed for them,” he added.

Following is the full text of the fatwa issued by him:

The statement I have given for the girl is that they cannot related with such things as music. I suggest them to think and abide by what Islam says.

This is not good. Whatever condition our country is in, all these uprisings, is because of the shameful behaviour of people. That’s why it’s better for girls to stay behind veils, so that such bad things can stop from happening.

The way these girls dress up ¦in revealing clothes is not good. They should be blamed if any unfortunate incidents take place with them. It’s because they invited men, and it’s not the opposite gender’s fault. Co-education is not good. They should be educated separately from boys. This will help improve the condition of the country. I suggest that whatever they want to do, they should not do publicly.

I would like to suggest to the parents of such girls to not support their girls. They should sing in their rooms, or within the family, but singing in public, in front of unknown men, I do not appreciate that. This gives rise to a bad situation. The condition of society is not good, and for the betterment of the country all this should not happen. One should sing for oneself.

All this singing business in public provokes men. Our daughters should be taught to be in control, this will prove good for the nation. Even in times of pre-Independence, this was not the condition, the way it is now after independence. Girls should live within limits. They should remain in veil. And should always keep their heads covered. This is the most important aspect. If they go out they should be in veil.

They should remain in poise and should specially keep their heads covered always, even in front of relatives. Because it is said that open hair attract men. Even if they want to go out, they should remain under veils.

This is very important. Girls should stay behind veil, they should not perform in front of unknown men.

They should not have been abused on Facebook. But they should have been told or advised. They can sing, but singing in public, which would provokes men, is not good. They should remain in veil.

This will only help the country. It will bring peace and order. We should tell the women that they are daughters, wives and mothers and should not perform in public. This is fatwa, too, and my suggestion too, that our girls should not perform in public, or else their is no difference between our women and film actresses.

The all-girls band, which came to limelight in late December last year after their performance at the annual ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition here, had defied the convention by stepping into the male-dominated field of music.
The girls’ band has received abusive and hate messages on their Facebook page for defying convention by choosing the field of music.

However, support has been pouring in from all corners on social networking sites for the band and Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has also backed them.

Omar came out in support of the girls yesterday saying police will probe the threats.

“I hope these talented young girls will not let a handful of morons silence them,” he said.

    OPEN LETTER TO 911 TERRORIST, LARRY SILVERSTEIN

    Shalom Larry,

    RE: Ownership, Control, and Insurance of The World Trade Center

    I would like to know if the article below is correct:

    The World Trade Center complex came under the control of a private owner for the first time only in mid-2001, having been built and managed by the Port Authority as a public resource. The complex was leased to a partnership of Silverstein Properties and Westfield America. 1 2 The new controllers acquired a handsome insurance policy for the complex including a clause that would prove extremely valuable: in the event of a terrorist attack, the partnership could collect the insured value of the property, and be released from their obligations under the 99-year lease. 3

    Ownership Change

    Author Don Paul investigated this and related issues for his 2002 book, which contains the following passage detailing financial aspects and ownership changes of the complex preceding the attack.

    On April 26 of 2001 the Board of Commissioners for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey awarded Silverstein Properties and mall-owner Westfield America a 99-year-lease on the following assets: The Twin Towers, World Trade Center Buildings 4 and 5, two 9-story office buildings, and 400,000 square feet of retail space.

    The partners’ winning bid was $3.2 billion for holdings estimated to be worth more than $8 billion. JP Morgan Chase, a prestigious investment-bank that’s the flagship firm of its kind for Rockefeller family interests, advised the Port Authority, another body long influenced by banker and builder David Rockefeller, his age then 85, in the negotiations.
    The lead partner and spokesperson for the winning bidders, Larry Silverstein, age 70, already controlled more than 8 million square feet of New York City real estate. WTC 7 and the nearby Equitable Building were prime among these prior holdings. Larry

    Silverstein also owned Runway 69, a nightclub in Queens that was alleged 9 years ago to be laundering money made through sales of Laotian heroin. 4

    In December 2003, the Port Authority agreed to return all of the $125 million in equity that the consortium headed by Silverstein originally invested to buy the lease on the World Trade Centre. The Port Authority rejected a request by the Wall Street Journal to review the transaction. 5 A press report from November 2003 about the same transaction noted that it would allow Silverstein to retain development rights. 6
    The lease deal didn’t close until July 24th, just 6 weeks before the attack. 7
    Insurance Payouts
    Don Paul also documented the money flows surrounding the loss of Building 7.
    In February of 2002 Silverstein Properties won $861 million from Industrial Risk Insurers to rebuild on the site of WTC 7. Silverstein Properties’ estimated investment in WTC 7 was $386 million. So: This building’s collapse resulted in a profit of about $500 million. 8

    The insurance money flows involved in the destruction of the original six World Trade Center buildings were far greater. Silverstein Properties, the majority owner of WTC 7, also had the majority interest in the original World Trade Centre complex. Silverstein hired Willis Group Holdings Ltd. to obtain enough coverage for the complex. Willis undertook “frenetic” negotiations to acquire insurance from 25 carriers. The agreements were only temporary contracts when control of the WTC changed hands on July 24. 9
    After the attack, Silverstein Properties commenced litigation against its insurers, claiming it was entitled to twice the insurance policies’ value because, according to a spokesman for Mr. Silverstein, “the two hijacked airliners that struck the 110-story twin towers Sept. 11 were separate ‘occurrences’ for insurance purposes, entitling him to collect twice on $3.6 billion of policies.” This was reported in the Bloomberg News less than one month after the attack. 10
    The ensuing legal battle between the leaseholders and insurers of the World Trade Center was not about how the 9/11/01 attack on the WTC could be considered two attacks, when the WTC was only destroyed once. Rather it seemed to revolve around whether the beneficiaries thought it was one or two “occurrences.” The proceedings before U.S. District Judge John S. Martin involved a number of battles over the insurers’ discovery rights regarding conversations about this issue between insurance beneficiaries and their lawyers. 11 12

    In December 2004, a jury ruled in favor of the insurance holders’ double claim. 13

    A Parable
    To put these events in perspective, imagine that a person leases an expensive house, and immediately takes out an insurance policy covering the entire value of the house and specifically covering bomb attacks. Six weeks later two bombs go off in the house, separated by an hour. The house burns down, and the lessor immediately sues the insurance company to pay him twice the value of the house, and ultimately wins. The lessor also gets the city to dispose of the wreckage, excavate the site, and help him build a new house on the site.

    Well, Larry what do you think? It looks like the Goyim think you set it up from the start! They think us Jews would do such things to the Goyim!

    All the article proves is how clever you are, and how dumb the Goyim are.

    Is it true you sing Frank Sinatra’s song, “I Did It My Way” in the shower?
    Larry if you are buying any property in the future, give me a call. I will buy the property next door and make sure I take out an insurance policy covering the entire value of the property.

    The Nazi Fascist state of America works hand in hand with Saudi Arabia.
    Islam is the religion of the Saudi Arabian monarchy!
    Islam is a Fascist ideology & will be used by these people to take control of the world.
    Mohammed was a Fascist, just like Hitler!

    TRUTH

    Truth is not necessarily what you believe, i.e., cannot be conformed to your opinion. Truth exists outside your knowledge and opinion and is a consistent pattern of facts. Without consistent truth you have nothing to rely upon. You can be told ninety-nine truths, but then be told one lie with the intent to deceive you. Anything said with the intent to lie… is a pattern of deception.

    Follow Jesus, not Mohammed

    “In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12)

    Are we able to receive Jesus’ Words here in this saying? For Messiah plainly says that to treat people the same way you want them to treat you, “is the Law and the Prophets”.

    Matthew chapter 22: “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And He said to him, “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ “This is the great and foremost commandment. “The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ “On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:36-40)

    Those who follow Messiah have both a simpler Way, as well as a much more difficult Way. The simplicity is Jesus telling his follower’s plainly that to love God and your neighbor IS all the rules, regulations, and “the Law” (that encompassed in the Torah) that one is to live by. The difficulty is that his followers retain the sinful nature which rejects the living out of those two great commandments.

    Jesus of Nazareth says, “For everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.” & “But it shall not be so among you. But whoever desires to be great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever of you desires to become first, he shall be servant of all.” & “I am the Good Shepherd…and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one flock, and one Shepherd. (Luke 18:14, Mark 10:43-44, John 10:11,16)

    “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life…”, and “All who are of the truth listen to MY voice.”

    Those eternally valuable truths…

    “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, and no one gets to the Father except through me.”
    “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

    The Father sent One beloved, error-free Messenger who can bring freedom from your hopelessness, but his voice has been drowned out, hidden, obscured.

    The Beloved One says plainly,

    “All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him”. (Matthew 11:27)

    … and…

    “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Messiah Joshua whom You have sent. (John 17:3)

    It is a difficult truth to receive, but in truth, the teachings of the One who calls himself the Light of the world have been covered, buried and for all practical purposes, lost. His Voice has been drowned out by thousands of other voices. In fact, at the most essential level, his Voice has been replaced by a book, ‘the Bible’ or “the Scripture” or “God’s Word”, by a clever slight-of-hand which says that the book IS his voice.

    His statements, “All who are of the truth listen to MY voice”; and “nor does anyone know the Father except the Son”; have been changed (and thus corrupted) to:

    ‘All who are of the truth listen to the bible’

    ‘Nor does anyone know the Father except those who control Christendom’, thus pointing people away from the ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS THE FATHER.

    …beware of the all too common self-justification and self-deception of, ‘oh yes, that is true, but not of ME or MY church’…

    CHRISTENDOM IS NOT CHRISTIANITY!

    THE WORD OF GOD IS A PERSON, NOT A BOOK!

    • Hi respected LLSilver, “Jesus” was a mere story character in the book, “according to Mathews”. “Jesus” never lived on this planet. Even the author is not known!!

  2. Here is one time when I have to agree with the Grand Mufti. When you see the likes of Madonna on stage, it is vulgar! She is no better than a prostitute! If she wants to be a prostitute, then let her go down to some Red District & sell her body to the customers, but it is wrong to have such people performing on stage and young girls watching her, thinking that this is how one should act!

    NO! This time I must agree with my Mohammedan foes!
