About the Book: Is the issue of music a controversial one in Islam? With the prevalence of computers and various electronic devices today, music and singing seem to be everywhere, and contemporary Muslims may be confused about their status in Islamic teachings. The Music Made Me Do It: An In-Depth Study of Music through Islam and Science examines this topic in light of authentic Islamic sources, in order to clarify the prohibitions and allowances regarding music and singing.

In addition, the author describes the social, psychological and physical effects of music on individuals, citing well-documented contemporary research in the fields of medical and behavioural sciences. The interweaving of the two perspectives makes this book a valuable asset for anyone interested in exploring this pertinent Islamic issue.

What Others Say   “…a book that should appeal to a wide range of people… Questions are answered and doubts and objections that people raise are quelled, and inspiring stories are included for those whose hearts are open to repentance.”  (Abdur-Raheem Green, UK)

“…an excellent work…for those who would like to know the true position of Islam regarding music… I do encourage everyone to read it… ” (Dr. Ahmed H. Sakr, USA)

    Most books on this topic generally skew towards one particular school of thought and ignore the human aspect of the issue. In this case, we must accede that music is alluring for everyone – young and old, except for one who has trained his or her mind to experience it with extreme discomfort. From pleasure to noise takes a lot of effort but like a bitter pill we swallow it. Does this mean such people are unaffected by some forms of music – absolutely not. We are affected either way and what I enjoyed in this book was the acknowledgment of the human effect of music on our thinking and mood as well as the scientific argument of how music addiction can effect us in a negative way. Islam is a way of life and so we take the rapid infusion of music in every aspect of our life as un-welcome and un-healthy, only for the sake of Allah, and work towards reducing its footprint in our individual and collective lives. A fantastic book for the ‘rational’ youth who are being trained to question everything.

    A remarkable book containing concrete evidence for the prohibition of music from Quran, hadith, caliphs,scholars to its disastrous effects on the human body through scientific based evidence from various experiments carried out over the years. If, this book is read with sincere intentions to improve ourselves, it would convince you 110% why you should bid farewell to music.A MUST READ
