“Music is the recitation of the devil,” warns Toronto Imam

Shaykh Said Rageah (الشيخ سعيد راجح) was born in Somalia and in the late 80sn moved to North America. Rageah has a Bachelor’s in Islamic studies and a Masters in Shari’ah and he has had several posts over the years, including: founder of Masjid Huda in Montreal and Masjid Aya in Maryland, advisor for Muslim Youth magazine, and member in the Aqsa Association.






 

He is also the founder of both Muslim Magazine and Al Aqsa Association, and served as the Chaplain at both the University of Calgary and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). He served as an Imam at the Abu Hurairah Mosque in Toronto, the Chairman for the Journey of Faith Conference and as an instructor for the AlMaghrib Institute.

 

In one of his lectures few years ago at Abu Huraira Centre Rageah explained the Islamic Law regarding the issue of playing and listening to music:

 

“[Reading a question submitted to him by a woman] She says should the parents have let their children listen to music of any type and is music in general haram [prohibited]?

 

“Music, there is a difference between singing and music. Music in general is haram [prohibited]. Music, all kind of music, that you use the instruments, you know, piano, guitar, bass, all of this is haram, haram, haram [prohibited].

 

“However, there is a nasheed [liturgical hymn], Islamic nasheed that is permissible. So, a person can listen to Islamic nasheed, but the children should not listen to music and I tell you especially these young children.

 

“When you play music in your house in reality you are inviting shaytan [devil] to your house, you’re inviting jinn [demon] to your house and that’s why you see especially [when] we treat that people who have jinn [demon], so every time you go back you would find that this person is committing a sin (معصية) and one common thing that most of the people are committing is the sin (معصية) of listening to music. When you play music all the shayateen [devils] are welcome to your house.

 

“It is like someone calling Allah Akbar [Allah is the Greatest], Allah Akbar and you see all the Muslims coming to the masjid [mosque], because they heard the adhan [Islamic call to prayer], likewise when you play music in your house all the shayteen [devils] around that area will come on to listen to the music, because music is the recitation of the shaytan [devil].

 

“Therefore it is not permitted. But, some brothers and sisters are very smart. If the music is a Western music [it] is haram [prohibited], if it’s Arabic music [it] is halal [permissible].

 

“I swear by Allah [والله]. And some of them say: Oh, no. this is Somali music… [A sentence in Somali language] we know this lady; you know her music is not haram [prohibited]. Simple because they know that person her music is not haram [prohibited]. That is not a reason. All the music is haram [prohibited].”

What do you get when you play Islamic music backwards ?
You get your camel back , you get your prayer rug back , You get your flies and smells back.
What they never get back is a job because they never had one, and their virginity because their uncle took that when they were ten via the poop chute. ( Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan have said the hardest thing to endure was listening to Afghan soldiers rape screaming little boys at night . A street survey in Kandahar found 65% of men had no issue with raping little boys ).

Islam – the killer of culture and literacy.

I think all Imam need to be followed around and their bank accounts audited. I believe the money trail is being funded through these evil leaders. We need some good private investigators to snoop around and find out more about these creepy Imams.

Yannie Znayew whined: “Well, that Imam totally nails it if he’s talking about country music, which is nothing more than a collection of redneck anthems justifying their hateful status in the world.” Yet another hateful comment exposing the leftist mindset!

@ Rae Fraser – islamics are evil and they plot the down fall of the west. It truly is that simple.

If they were to all be killed off tomorrow I would not complain.

I think that masturbating yourself between the thighs of a baby girl is really sick and depraved . I did not know that if you abstained from the consumption of pork and alcohol and prayed 5 times a day to a paedophile—-then all is good—

And (get this) if you commit suicide and kill a bunch of women and babies then you go straight to Heaven where you can FUCK Perpetual Virgins for Eternity. .
I am not making this up. This is ISLAM. Sue me.

You really have to question a culture that reduces their society to a pile of shit and then travels to our country and wants to also reduce this to a pile of shit. What is most disturbing we have our PM getting on board with this.

When the inevitable take over of the western world by the Islamists comes, I was wondering who would be left with the balls to actually fight back? The only ones left will be China, Russia and Israel. Should make for an interesting alliance.

Once a liar, always a liar.
mortgage (n.)
late 14c., morgage, “conveyance of property as security for a loan or agreement,” from Old French morgage (13c.), mort gaige, literally “dead pledge” (replaced in modern French by hypothèque), from mort “dead” (see mortal (adj.)) + gage “pledge” (see wage (n.)). So called because the deal dies either when the debt is paid or when payment fails. Old French mort is from Vulgar Latin *mortus “dead,” from Latin mortuus, past participle of mori “to die” (see mortal (adj.)). The t restored in English based on Latin.

The ghost of Qutb lives on.
Always liked that ‘roadhouse’ tale related by Qutb.

It would be music to my ears if I were told that this toxic “Imam” were deported back to Somalia where his Muslim nonsense makes sense. It is utter nonsense in Canada and Muslims should to told to stop with their drive for Sharia Law here. We Canadian do not want it. And a note to Jannie Znayew: I am listening to a country music station right now and I understand your concern about it. The country crooner is singing about Jesus Christ. That’s your problem isn’t it. Phony bastards.

I think they should all go do something to themselves.

I can’t even click and listen to these nitwits spouting their stupidity. But the comments in here are priceless. Haaaa! Give them some ACDC….“I’m on the highway to hell!”

A lot of radio station =s are going to go down when the islamics finally take over Canada – I will not be around, but at this rate I would suspect it will happen by around 2060 – same time as global warming. ;-)

Have to kill them off soon – all of them – make Hitler and Stalin look like choir boys – otherwise everything you see around you today will be gone.

Nothing good ever comes from an islamic state – should anyone wish to argue that point give me 5 examples of good from the islamics of today

Whew ! There are a lot of Canadian bodies in that room soaking in that garbage. Under he protection of freedom of religion they get to spew this stuff, and way way worse, unfettered.

Now I’ve heard everything & as soon as he finishes with his blathering, he’ll go home & listen to Adele’s latest album, little creepy hypocrite.

get this piece of shit the hell out of here. he does not represent Canadians or our values. he is NOT integrating. he does not respect us.
fly him out of here and make him listen to Rush 2112 all the way back to the shithole he came from.

Wait for a ban on “music”, so as not to offend the perpetually offended Muslims! Women artists will be the first to be banned!

a bachlers degree in sharia , I hear they come on a roll and are available almost anywhere there is a washroom.

A bunch of clowns, other than the fact that there were four of them, they put me in mind of Speak no evil, Hear no evil, Think no evil. They actually looked like monkeys.

Many more people have died due to Islam than have ever died of alcohol. Nothing but Brain Dead Morons.

There is no scientific evidence that Jesus Christ ever existed but there is a lot of historical evidence that says he did.
There is no scientific evidence that Muhammad ever existed but there is a lot of historical evidence that says he did not.

I am so sick of their garbage, go back to the middle east and the dark ages.

I only stood 30 seconds. My attachment to Allah is not good.
commented 2015-12-11 18:01:27 -0500
I only listened to the first minute or so of this drivel because I had to turn on some music to drown them out. The sound of their voices, let alone their message is nauseating.
commented 2015-12-11 17:01:08 -0500
Was this a talk given at a men’s group? There are no women there. Perhaps all the women were out dancing and singing.
commented 2015-12-11 15:13:20 -0500
The answer is very simple! Surround these people with music, and they will leave. But wait, I see them in the malls buying stuff, and being surrounded with music. So, maybe this custom is outdated, and they are permitted to hear music. But wait, maybe they wear ear plugs. I am soooo confused!
