Afghanistan: Musician weeps as Taliban burn his musical instrument

Contrary to the article below, the Taliban have not altered the Qur’an. Nor do they have their own version of Islamic law. They just enforce aspects of it that others ignore.

“‘Imran bin Husain narrated that the Messenger of Allah(s.a.w) said: ‘In this Ummah there shall be collapsing of the earth, transformation and Qadhf.’ A man among the Muslims said: ‘O Messenger of Allah! When is that?’ He said: ‘When singing slave-girls, music, and drinking intoxicants spread.’” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2212)

“It was narrated from Abu Malik Ash’ari that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘People among my nation will drink wine, calling it by another name, and musical instruments will be played for them and singing girls (will sing for them). Allah will cause the earth to swallow them up, and will turn them into monkeys and pigs.’” (Sunan Ibn Majah 4020)

“Narrated Aisha: Abu Bakr came to my house while two small Ansari girls were singing beside me the stories of the Ansar concerning the Day of Buath. And they were not singers. Abu Bakr said protestingly, ‘Musical instruments of Satan in the house of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) !’ It happened on the `Id day and Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, ‘O Abu Bakr! There is an `Id for every nation and this is our `Id.’” (Sahih al-Bukhari 952)

This is the height of cruelty. The instrument was central to the expression of this poor man’s soul. This is every bit as illustrative of the cruelty of Sharia as is the flogging of adulterers.

“In Afghanistan’s Paktia Province, Taliban Burn Musical Instrument In Front Of Musician,” by Ajeet Kumar, Republic World, January 16, 2022:

In another jolt against the musicians, the Taliban burned down a musical instrument in front of a singer on Saturday. According to a video tweeted by a senior journalist of Afghanistan, Abdulhaq Omeri, a local musician can be seen crying in front of the Taliban who has burnt all his musical instruments publicly, while the others can be seen recording the video of the miserable condition. As per the details mentioned in the tweet, the incident was reported in Afghanistan’s Paktia province. “Taliban burn musician’s musical instrument as local musician weeps. This incident happened in #ZazaiArub District #Paktia Province #Afghanistan,” Omeri said in a tweet….

According to an earlier report by the Tolo News, the Taliban had ordered to ban all musical concerts at weddings and other social events. Even, they ordered the hotels to separate male and female guests in the wedding ceremony. Earlier, the extremist group had banned music in vehicles. It is pertinent to mention here that the Taliban passed a series of controversial orders against women after they assumed power. Earlier in December last year, the Taliban ordered to remove all the banners and posters that featured pictures of women.

Taliban cites Sharia law behind all recent changes
In the last week of December 2021, the Ministry of Virtue and Vice addressed a letter to all the women athletes wherein it directed women not to visit sports and health centres alone. The Ministry recommended women can “visit the places along with a male companion.” While narrating her ordeal, Ramzieya Saedi, who is a member of the Rostami wrestling team and the national Taekwondo team, accused the Taliban of the worst phase the sports sector is undergoing in the country. According to a report by a local media organisation, the Directorate of Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (DPVPV) has ordered to behad female mannequins, as it violates contentious “Sharia” law….

However, some of the Islamic nations including, Afghanistan has altered the verses of the Quran according to their political beliefs.
