Para uma verdadeira compreensão do islão: a proibição da música - ilustração (2)

Mais uma ilustração da diabólica proibição islâmica da música, in Jihad Watch:
«In a tiny workshop on the roof of his home in a Baghdad slum, Farhan Hassan works in secret, lovingly curving wood and tightening strings to make his ouds -- a traditional Arabic instrument.

Only close family and friends know what he is doing, because the militiamen in his neighborhood frown on such frivolities.

(...) [N]owadays few in the country play or make the oud, a pear-shaped, deep-voiced cousin of the lute. Hundreds of artists fled Iraq during the violence in recent years -- and continued instability and the power of religious hard-liners give them little desire to return....

Now Hassan is also hoping to leave Iraq. Like many of the estimated 2.5 million Shiites who live in Sadr City, he has had to cope with some of the city's worst living conditions. Militiamen have closed music stores, prohibited the mixing of the sexes, banned wedding parties, imposed the Islamic hijab on women and murdered gay men -- all while making a living as hired guns....

"I could have gone out on the streets carrying an RPG or a machine-gun and people would either take no notice or commend me on my courage," he mused. "But I would have probably been killed if I had gone out with an oud in my hand," he said with a laugh tinged with bitterness.»
Recomenda-se uma leitura, mesmo que na diagonal, dos comentários à entrada da qual retirámos estes excertos de uma notícia da AP, com destaque para o de Hugh Fitzgerald:

«If one follows strictly, to the letter, Islam, then music is to be banned. And in some settings this is true. For example, think of the vast corpus of sacred music, church music, in Christianity as compared to the complete absence of any analogous music in the mosque. The Muslim apologist (...) points to some examples of popular music and claims that this rebuts those who say Islam bans or at least discourages music, is ignoring the fact that not everyone is necessarily strict in his observances, but that the rules as to What Is Commanded and What Is Prohibited are there, and at any time may, if Islam is taken more fully to heart (and when, or why, that happens to any individual Muslim is not predictable, least of all by non-Muslims) be enforced. See what the Taliban did to wedding-singers in Afghanistan. See what happens to some music and DVD stores in Hamastan, that is Gaza. See what happens to the RAI singers of Algeria, some of them actually murdered by those most fanatical in their faith.

Whatever musical tradition previously existed in lands then conquered by Islam were soon subject to constraints and the result was the musical impoverishment we see today.»
