Poem on Music

Poem on Music

By Kamal el Mekki

O Muslim, lawful things have good attributes.
Where is the good in singing, dancing and listening to flutes?

Can we compare the words of singers and sounds of musicians…
To the glorious Qur’an, it’s lessons, wisdoms and admonitions?

How many singers do you know and give admiration.
And how many do you know of the companions and the following generation?

How much do you spend on singers from your wealth?
Compared to how much you know of Islamic scholars.

Do you see how much is memorised of music songs?
While you ignore the book (i.e. Al Qur’an) to which memorisation belongs.

How much do you memorise of these incantations?
And sway back and forth in intoxication.

Have you not seen those who follow the misguided?
And increase the loudness of music when they should hide it?

And who writes their songs, thinkers, or men of academia?
or maybe scholars like Ahmad and Malik or even ibn taymiyah.

O you who listens to music…
Don’t you see that all the songs of the world and all the lyrics you’ve seen
Wouldn’t compare in reward to even Alif Laam Meem. (Opening letters of Surah Al-Baqarah)
