“‘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)

“Afghanistan: Taliban ‘sentences TV To Death,’ Destroys Scores Of Musical Instruments,” by Zaini Majeed, Republic World, December 30, 2021:

After Kabul befell the hardline Islamist faction Taliban, the group had assured Afghans of “freedom” and that there was “no need to flee the country.” “Don’t be scared,” Afghan TV presenter of a political debate programme told the public as at least eight armed Taliban men surrounded him LIVE on camera. Now, the so-called Taliban that pledged press freedom and “no threats” for TV crew was seen forcing a man to take an oath to “never watch TV” again. And then, the Taliban sentenced a TV to death.

The incident occurred on Wednesday, 29 December in Afghanistan and has rattled the Afghan population. The now-viral footage, first shared by a Pakistani journalist, Hamza Azhar Salam, is doing rounds on the internet and shows Taliban members terrorising households across the central Asian country that was exited by the US troops in August on orders of President Joe Biden as his foreign policy required American forces stationed in Kabul to finally abandon 20-year war and “come home”.

‘Not permissible in Sharia’
In the chilling video, the Taliban that has enforced strict sharia law for governance after the political takeover is seen forcing a man to take an oath that he would never watch TV again. This is purportedly due to the belief among the Islamist extremists that it is not permissible in sharia (Islamic law) to watch TV. The Taliban men are seen smashing a television set and destroying scores of musical instruments including harmonium as it is “haram” [forbidden] in Islam. Pakistani journalist Hamza Azhar Salam who first shared the footage appeared to normalise the behaviour as he stressed that “things can change in future.”

While the Taliban’s act wasn’t condemned, Salam reiterated that the incident was similar to what maulvis [Islamic religious scholars] practised in Pakistan. “They were also against TV, Radio, and other modes of entertainment before they jumped on the bandwagon and now benefit from these platforms,” he said. “Taliban may do the same in due course,” he wrote, sharing the disturbing footage. It remains unclear whether the musical instruments destroyed were lifted from music shops across Afghanistan or that if the owners were punished too….
