(Tasvir Afghanistan): 'Islam and Music', a scholarly book written in
Pashto by a talented poet and writer Qazi Muhammad Hassan Haqyar was published and arrived in the market last week. The 140-page book looks into different aspects of the music under the Islamic jurisdiction, investigating the issues deeply with regard to modern fatwas (Islamic verdicts).
Haqyar argues in his book that most of the Ulema (Muslim scholars) in the past as well as in the present are of the view that listening music is lawful unless there are other reasons for making it haraam (prohibited in Islamic law) in some cases.
"Music is also poem, but not in the shape of words and phrases, rather in the form of meaning and spirit," the book reads as in a place. Muhammad Hassan Haqyar was born in 1972. He obtained his Masters in Sharia (Islamic law) and has authored six books.
