Allah is the One Who makes us listen to the music. Allah is the One Who makes us enjoy it. We could have heard the music and be terrified. Yet we enjoy music. Allah is the One Who creates it and Allah is the One Who gives us that pleasure through it. In the Heaven there is the most beautiful form of music.
There is music in the Heaven. God gives that in our hearts as a pleasant feeling. All our people have fun, they all dance, they all laugh and play music. Yet that is a mistake according to radicals. Music is a blessing; music is an immaculate beauty. It is an amazing beauty that polishes the human soul and refreshes the human heart. There is music everywhere even in birds, even in waterfalls.
Islam prevails everywhere. One can mention the Name of God while having fun or in a wedding. There is no such thing as saying one cannot talk about God in a place of entertainment. This is the result of a mindset that tries to spread irreligiousness presenting it as if it is something in demand. That is because people are very fond of music and entertainment. These people say “Do not talk about God when there is music and entertainment. Simply keep quiet.” Irreligiousness is the result of such a mentality.
God is the One Who directly creates music. Is it music what comes to your ears? No, it is not: It is merely sound waves. The waves come to one's ears but it is not the ear that hears; ears are deaf. They simply transmit the sound waves; they transmit the waves as electricity and the brain listens to those sound waves as music. There is no music; see that there is no music until it reaches the brain. There is no music in the place music is played. It is really weird that there is no music outside; there is no music outside the brain.
If you regard arts as unsavory, if you despise music, painting, sculpture and architecture, if you attempt to run away from a house with paintings, if you say "dogs are evil, you should chase off them when you see them," such a country would never advance. The reason why Europe advanced is because they are open to arts and science.
Religion is a system that gathers all the beauties of the world inside. There is joy in religion, there is merriness, there is fun, there is music in religion. Ladies can wander around comfortably, they can wear revealing clothes if they like and cover their heads if they like; no one interferes them. They can laugh as they like, they can have tattoos if they like. Religion would not interfere with such things. Religion commands us to have a good conscience and be conscientious, to be honest, to be reasonable, to be meticulous about what is lawful and what is not. Religion is the other name of joy.
People saw that they can be religious in their hearts and souls. They have seen that they can listen to music; they have seen that women can wander around without covering their heads yet be religious and perform their prayers at the same time. Therefore, religion has become widespread covertly in Turkey and found a great foundation everywhere.
It is alright to listen to music, it is alright to have fun and to laugh. Anything to the contrary would disrupt human nature; it would destabilize one's balance. May God forbid, you would make yourself fall ill if you disrupt your nature. Be joyous, be happy, have fun, laugh and be playful. That is how God created you. Otherwise, you turn in on yourself, you become ill, your health would then be disrupted, you would then lose your strength to think. It also makes it impossible for you to live by Islam.
Music is lawful by religion, paintings are lawful, having fun is lawful, sculpture is lawful. I mean, lawful things are innumerable. Things that are forbidden by religion are concisely defined in the Qur'an and they are very few. God says, 'I have deemed everything other than those lawful for you.' How do you come up with all those forbidden acts on your own?
Where is the verse in the Qur'an that deems music unlawful? Where is the verse in the Qur'an that deems paintings unlawful? What gave you that idea? There is no such ban in the Qur'an. Consequently, by doing so, you have created a hell for yourself. You have made lawful things unlawful and you hope that you will be given a beautiful reward in the Hereafter. May God protect you from Hell. Coming up with prohibitions in the name of God means ascribing partners to God.
Why are you pushing for difficulty? There is music in Islam, there are arts. You can laugh and have fun, you can dance as you like and perform your prayers as well. Then you can go travel and swim if you like. Killing every aspect of social life has no place in Islam. You deem all lawful things unlawful. God has given all those to you as blessings, and by wiping out these blessings, you are struggling against the religion of God.
