Muslims destroying Music instruments. Why do the Taliban & ISIS make it a priority, when they conquer a territory, to destroy musical instruments? Music is considered dangerous to the cohesion of the Muslim community. This is because music can become a passion that distracts from religion. Music encourages dancing with the opposite sex. Music inspires the imagination that leads to independent thinking.
Islamic doctrine decrees that Music is forbidden. There is tolerance for a simple hand drum daff. Destroying Music instruments is a pious duty.

Music as we know it today, produced by wind and stringed instruments, is haram (forbidden). When we look at the tradition of the early scholars of Islam they made all kinds of statements against it. Some scholars refer to music – they refer to it as Quran of Shatan.
Music can touch the soul of man. But Allah did not create music. Therefore, Muslims view it as created by Satan.
So when Prophet Mohammad PBUH warned us about it, something which was dangerous for our souls. That’s what Islam is there to do – to protect our souls. So we need to stop and turn back to Allah and love him and worship him through our love of him by obeying the messenger of Allah.
Muslims must live as a distinct community. Rejecting music, which is associated with the West, is one of several key elements to ensure Muslim do not integrate.
We need to do that in order for this ummah to succeed. It is the only way. We can chase the dunya – replicate the West, their lifestyles. But where does it lead? What is it the end of it all? Wretchedness. We have something which the rest of the world does not have. We need to preserve it, to take care of it, to live it as it deserves to be lived.

There is a proven text concerning the prohibition of musical instruments, as in the hadith of Abu Maalik al-Ash‘ari , who heard the Prophet PBUH say: “There will surely be among my ummah people who will regard as permissible adultery, silk, alcohol and musical instruments.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari in a mu‘allaq report (5590); See: as-Silsilah as-Saheehah by al-Albaani (91).
Does one offer compensation for destroying Music instruments
Destruction. This means the destruction of evil items, such as breaking and burning idols, breaking musical instruments, smashing wine vessels, burning down taverns in which wine is sold, destroying books of heresy and atheism and promiscuous movies and three-dimensional pictures, and so on.
Among the items for which there is no obligation to pay compensation if they are destroyed are: musical instruments; crosses; vessels for wine; books of misguidance.
Canadian Muslim leader will not enact Islamic prohibitions as a punitive measure.
Imam Abdool Hamid:
Muslims do not want to take over for the sake of taking over, but to improve the lives of people. That is why Islam came. To do that, they have to make changes. So it may seem from one perspective that Islam took over so to speak. To view excerpt
Music is vital to the soul of Western civilization. It is against our interests to live with people that want to break our soul. But as with many other small measures that propel Islam forward the question is not if BUT when.
