Prayer Time

  |      |   

Part of the impediments to meditation is song because it distracts the heart and dissuades it from comprehending the Qur'aan or reflecting on it or acting upon its embodiments. Qur'aan and song can never get together in the heart owing to the contrariety between them. The Qur'aan prohibits to follow one's whims and enjoins decency and abstinence from vain desires whereas song encourages and beautifies the contrary to all that. It arouses the souls to desires, stimulates their potentials and motivates them to all that is hideous.

Ibn Al-Qayyim
