The next question

00:00:02--> 00:00:08

is from Abdullah Muhammad, from Bangladesh

00:00:10--> 00:00:22

if beatboxing allowed in Islam, first let's understand what is beat boxing. beat boxing is a vocal percussion

00:00:23--> 00:00:33

imitating the sound of the drum machine with your mouth, the lips, your tongue, and your voice.

00:00:35--> 00:01:13

This is there since a couple of centuries ago, it started. Since the 19th century, though the word was then called as beatboxing. Originally beatboxing was imitating the drum machine. And later on as time passed on, they started imitating the other musical instruments and now, lately, almost all the instruments are imitated by the human vocal voice using the mouth, the tongue, the lips. And it was made famous in the 20th century in the late 1960s, by The Beatles, Paul McCartney.

00:01:15--> 00:01:19

History tells us that even Michael Jackson made it famous and so on and so forth.

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

Coming to the question,

00:01:23--> 00:01:28

that is beat boxing, permitted in Islam.

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

Almost all

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

the scholars,

00:01:35--> 00:01:40

they agree that musical instruments are Haram in Islam.

00:01:41--> 00:01:50

There are very few scholars that you may find lately. On the past that have permitted

00:01:52--> 00:02:08

the use of musical instruments, there are various added which have primary musical instruments. I'll just go to one which is very important. It's mentioned in say Buhari, number 5590, that our beloved prophet masala Sallam said

00:02:09--> 00:02:13

that they will be among my followers, some

00:02:14--> 00:02:30

who will make illegal intercourse that Xena adultery and fornication, wearing of silk, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and the use of musical instruments as lawful as halaal.

00:02:31--> 00:02:35

This is one of the signs of the art

00:02:36--> 00:03:08

before the day of judgment before the end of the world. A prophet says this is a sign that there will be some people from his oma who will make zinna adultery fornication, wearing acidic drinking of alcohol and the use of musical instruments as halaal indicating that using music instruments is haram. The Prophet only permitted certain times the use of Duff, that's an open ended drum

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

and eat on weddings.

00:03:12--> 00:03:17

But generally, all the other instruments are Haram. There are various fatwas

00:03:19--> 00:03:22

since the musical instruments, Haram,

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

a human being imitating the Haram musical instrument, according to scholars is also Haram.

00:03:30--> 00:04:12

And when Shay potami was asked, that is beatboxing permissible, he clearly said, even imitating the harem instrument, the musical instruments with your mouth, whether it be drums, whether it be other instruments, it is forbidden, it is prohibited. So beatboxing is not permissible for the Muslims. It is not allowed that a Muslim should imitate the sound of the musical instrument, whether it be drums, whether it be other musical instruments, whether sound This is haram, and the Muslim should abstain from it, even listening to it, and even involving in making sounds of haram musical instruments with your mouth
