ISIS Branch In Libya Declares War Against Music, Burns All Instruments
I guess that means Jihadi Johnny will never learn to play Give Peace a Chance. In the twisted world of Mohammed’s minions, listening to music and flying kites and free societies is pure evil. But slavery and beheadings and rape is music to their ears …
Hadith Qudsi 19:5, “The Prophet said that Allah commanded him to destroy all the musical instruments, idols, crosses and all the trappings of ignorance.”
By Umberto Bacchi, International Business Times – “The Islamic State (Isis) propaganda machine has published photos of its militants in Libya burning musical instruments they said were confiscated in line with the radical group’s interpretation of Sharia law.
Black-clad gunmen are seen setting fire to a pile of drums, brass and woodwind instruments at a countryside location and then watching the fire burning in images posted online by an Isis media branch.
An accompanying message claimed the instrument-burning took place in eastern Libya, possibly near the city of Derna.
Under the jihadi group’s rules, instrumental music is banned as well as what it claims are other un-Islamic activities such as smoking and drinking alcohol.
In September, it was reported that Isis had imposed a new school curriculum in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, banning art and music as well as all classes on history, literature and Christianity.
Libya has been embroiled in fighting since the overthrow of late dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
Battling for control of the country currently involves pro-government forces, Libya Dawn, an umbrella group including radical and moderate Islamists, and Isis local offshoots that recently infiltrated several coastal cities.
The group’s expansion into the Mediterranean country has sparked international alarm.” Read more.
Flashback: Good Sounds Lead To Bad Behavior: Sharia Law’s Growing Jihad Against Music – “We can all point to things that brighten our day, but as diverse as those lists may be, music, of one sort or another, finds its way onto most people’s lists. Alarmingly, any engagement in music is becoming illegal in some corners of the globe, and the ideology behind this snuffing out of a beautiful art form threatens to affect the rest of the world as well. We are referring to Islamic Sharia law. Already, in countries such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Mali, musicians have been killed or threatened with removal of their fingers or tongues simply because they make music. Music stores and instruments have likewise been destroyed in the hopes of silencing virtually all styles of music.” Read more.

It’s something we have not done before,’ said Imam M.A. Azeez of Salam Islamic Center, which organized the evening at the Crest… The imams of Sacramento’s two biggest mosques declared that music is not permissible according to the Prophet Muhammad, Allah’s messenger.” Read more.
