buddhuu Does Religion Deny Music to Children? (291* d) RE: Religion denies music to children? 02 Jul 10

Mousethief: "Changing the subject slightly: I think, buddhuu, the problem with your analogy is that denying ALL music and denying rock-and-roll and/or jazz to one's constituents aren't even on the same level. They're not even in the same ballpark. They're not even playing the same sport. I may not want my child to listen to rap songs that glorify slapping one's bitch ho and shooting police officers, but that's not even LIKE the same thing as not wanting her to experience music at all."

I see your point, but I suggest it isn't as clear cut as it may seem. Islam, overall, does not ban all music. Some adherents interpret teaching as dictating that no instruments should be used. Possibly some frown upon all music. Certainly some traditions within Islam do embrace music, as is shown in Sufi Qawali - which variously features instruments and unaccompanied singing, and which I like very much.

So, I don't think I was too wide of the mark comparing some Christians and Jews objecting to some music, with some Muslims objecting to some music.

Obviously, YMMV. Our perceptions vary.
