Understanding Islam XXXI: Sharia and the Destruction of Culture & The Arts

This post is for all of my artistic and musical friends. If I understand Islam correctly, true Muslims would be content making the world a monochrome and monotonous hell. In Sharia the free expression of idea and art must conform to Sharia demands. Islam has a lot to say about music, dance and other arts. Among other things, it is unlawful in Islam to use musical instruments. It is unlawful under Sharia to use of listen to lutes, cymbals or flutes. It is allowed to use tambourines at weddings or circumcisions. Oh…beating a drum is not allowed either. Islam is not misunderstood… it is militaristically draconian.

Making an image/icon is prohibited and punishment is severe (usually death). Hence the fact that Islam forbids anyone from making an image of Muhammad and creating depictions of Allah. Nor is one allowed to imitate the creative acts of Allah. Essentially people are not allowed to be creative.

Bukhari 7.72.843 ~ Narrated Salim's father: Once Gabriel promised to visit the Prophet but he delayed and the Prophet got worried about that. At last he came out and found Gabriel and complained to him of his grief (for his delay). Gabriel said to him, "We do not enter a place in which there is a picture or a dog."

Make a picture and you’re going to Hell, no questions asked.

Bukhari 8.73.130 ~ As narrated by Aisha (Muhammad’s 6 year old wife): The Prophet entered upon me while there was a curtain having pictures (of animals) in the house. His face got red with anger, and then he got hold of the curtain and tore it into pieces. The Prophet said, "Such people as paint these pictures will receive the severest punishment on the Day of Resurrection."

All writing must submit to Sharia. If you offend Islam it is permitted to kill or assassinate you. Just go ask Salman Rushdie. Historically Muhammad often killed artisans, intellects and poets.
