No Music, No Dancing

The last time I posted on music in Islam, I was challenged by readers who said music is widespread in Muslim countries. I'm sure this is true, but here are two letters in pdf form the Nashville Islamic Center sent to Nashville public schools requesting Muslim students be excused from both music and dance classes:

Date: August 7, 2007

Subject: Music Class

Dear Sir or Madam:

This letter is a request for Muslim children in schools who wish to be excused from music class. In the Islamic faith, music is strongly discouraged and in many cases prohibited. I would like to request the class teacher and the principal to accommodate this basic religious need of our children by giving them alternative activities, such as computer classes, reading or other assignments....

Subject: Dancing Class

Dear Sir or Madam:

This letter is a request for Muslim children in schools who wish to be excused from dancing class. In the Islamic faith, dancing in a mixed (co-ed) group is not allowed. I would like to request the class teacher and the principal to accommodate this basic religious need of our children by giving them alternative activities, such as computer classes, reading or other assignments.

Please allow for these accommodations. If you have any questions, please contact any of the Mosques or myself (480-6146).

On behalf of the Muslim community in Nashville, Salahadeen Center of Nashville, Al-Farooq Islamic Center, Masjid Al-Islam and Islamic Center of Nashville, thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours sincerely,

Rashed Fakhruddin,

Islamic Center of Nashville, Director of Education
