Don't know if this link had been posted before but it is of a wonderful nasheed together with the translation
an-Nûr mil 'uyûnî wa al-Hûr milku yamînî
al-Husayn has released two versions of that particular nasheed, one with instruments and one "without". The version playing currently on sparklywater is the one "without" instruments. However, ironically, in actual fact it does have instruments, though to a lesser degree than the "with instruments" version. As such, both versions should be avoided.Originally Posted by Sheema
And Allah swt knows best.
Do you know what instruments the one which is meant to be without instruments has? Because our Ramadhan Radio played that particular nasheed, and it only plays nasheeds which the Ulama have approved and which do not contain any instruments besides the duff...Originally Posted by Saleel
Well, I have no knowledge of musical instruments so I can't really say which instruments it has. Though if you listen closely, especially at 2mins 17seconds, it's quite clear it has music.Originally Posted by Live for Islam
Let me just correct myself here, our Ramadhan Radio doesn't play nasheeds with duff either...Originally Posted by Live for Islam
K Insha-Allah, see if I can ask someone about that.Originally Posted by Saleel
mujahideenryder - Yup that's the one.
Man, what about Rahzel. Who needs instruments?
there was this sister with a blog who had some realllly nice nasheed playing. but the blog is no more...the name of the track was "ya rafiq al darb" and the name of the blog site was saffrondiz "washed away mememories".....does anyone have a link to the the track?
There seems to be a new rendition of Qasida Burdah out now... similar to the one by al-Husayn, but this one only contains the duff, and it has Sami Yusuf influence. Hmm. I'm still not convinced that it's permissible, though.
On any account, if it stops people listening to the musical one by al-Husayn, that's a "good" first-step I guess.
It's playing currently on sparklywater.co.uk.
