Prohibition in the... what???[edit]

Why is this article about prohibition of musical instruments when it is about anasheed. That topic is worth being displayed in it's own section or a different article completely.

I totally agree. This article reads more like a discussion of islamic rulings, than an article on islamic culture. How about a section on the modern impact of Anasheeds, or on the first ever nasheed? Come on. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.111.179.214 (talk) 20:19, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Agree too. Also problematic is the article seems to strongly push a minority viewpoint as the norm. Al-Azhar[1] and Qaradhawi[2] disagree on the claim that music is haram, so exactly which major mainstream Sunni institution (non-Salafi) supports this? And why then is the minority (Salafi?) view presented as the norm again?

Article also does original research by giving its own interpretation of the "silk, adultery and musical instruments" hadith, an interpretation not accepted by the Sunni establishment (see fatwas above).

Anybody familiar with Muslim cultures realise that obviously most Muslims through history didn't see music as 'haram'. Why also is it that the use of instruments is presented as a 'modern' innovation when they were heavily used even in religious service until the collapse of the traditional Islamic orders in the 20th C.?

Sometimes it feels like Wikipedia lets the fundamentalists impose their revisionist views on every single Islam-related article, it's a real shame. 183.89.33.130 (talk) 00:40, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Move article[edit]

This page and the page titled Nasheed should merge under the term Anasheed. Anasheed is a more correct title.


Move to Islamic music

There is a nasheed section in the "Islamic Music" article, which is much more comprehensive. I believe that this stub should be moved there.

Absolutely. This entry is not only poorly written, the subject matter belongs in the larger article.Jemiljan (talk) 22:42, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Nashid نشيد is singular in Arabic Anashid أناشيدis plural... AnonMoos (talk) 14:10, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Agreed. It does not make sense to why the plural of the word is the title of the page. Would it make sense to title the page song as songs (notice how "songs" redirects to "song").

Disagree. I don't think this article should be merge with any other article. Anasheed is different than Islamic music. Second their is no such thing that exist in Islam call music though Anasheed does exist. Anasheed is mainly vocal singing.

Citation needed for English word:[edit]

Taken from the top of the article:

Citation needed for the english word anasheed with plural anasheeds. When looking at the Arab word that seems retarded (well, 'murica...) as Anāshīd is a plural. islamicvideonasheds.blogspot.com uses the english word nasheed with plural nasheeds.
Also the Arab words became nashīd and Anāshīd in Latin letters - shouldn't it be Nashīd and Anāshīd, or nashīd and anāshīd?
