Why I Left Music?|Müziği Neden Bıraktım? (Video)

Dear friends,

One of the biggest issues facing Muslim youth today is the obsession with music, parties and dance clubs. This lifestyle undoubtedly distracts us from our purpose in life and keeps us away from the truth.

Today I want to share a story with you. This is the story of Aiman and Nour who turned around their lives completely and are now active practicing Muslims. I hope you like it and find it useful.  فِي أَمَانِ اللهِ God may protect us…

Kıymetli dostlar,

Günümüz gençlerinin karşılaştığı en büyük sorunlardan bir tanesi müziğe, partilere ve eğlenceye düşkün hale gelmesi. Şüphesiz ki bu hayat tarzı bizim dikkatimizi dağıtıp amaçlarımızdan saptırmakta doğruluktan uzaklaştırmaktadır.

Bugün sizlerle bu konu hakkında bir hikaye paylaşmak istiyorum. Eymen ve Nur hayatlarını tamamen değiştirerek iyi birer Müslüman oldular. Umarım siz de videoyu beğenirsiniz. Allah’a emanet olun…

  1. Before explaining its effects on nerves it is necessary to briefly describe an intricate & awe-inspiring part of the nervous system itself. These details are quoted here from the “Foundation of Biology” (by William D. McElory & Carl P. Swanson & others; published by Prentice-Hall, Inc; Englewood Cliffs, New Jersyy U.S.A. 1968) & “How your Nervous System Works” (by J.D. Ratcliff; Reader’s Digest – Book of Human Body) :-

    “Many reflexes that help control the internal environment involve a special part of the nervous system (ANS). This system consists of nerves making up the motor pathway to the heart, stomach, intestine & other internal organs These nerves are not under voluntary control; that is, you can not make your heart beat faster on command.”

    “The two major divisions of the automatic nervous system are called the sympathetic & parasympathetic nervous systems.”
    Sympathetic nerves leave the middle regions of the spinal cord “Parasympathetic nerves leave the central nervous system from the upper regions where they travel in cranial nerves (i.e., 12 pairs of nerves attached to the brain & serving head & neck), & from the lowermost regions of the spinal cord where they travel in spinal nerves.

    “Most internal organs of your body are supplied with both parasympathetic & sympathetic nerve fibers.”

    “In general, these two types of nerves work in opposite ways. For example, impulses traveling along sympathetic nerve fibers toward the heart increase your heart-beat rate, whereas impulses traveling along the parasympathetic nerves leading to the heart disease its rate.

    “When we examine the effects of sympathetic stimulation of various organs, a pattern begins to emerge. We find that sympathetic stimulation causes a number of events:

    1. Widening of air passage leading to the lungs;

    2. Constriction or narrowing of blood vessel in the skin & in the
    intestinal tract, resulting in blood being shifted from the digestive organs
    and skin to the muscles;

    3. A general slowing down of movements in the intestinal tract;

    4 An increase in the force & rate of heart-beat:

    5. Release of the blood sugar from the liver;

    6. Release of the hormones adrenaline.All of these activities prepare the human being for emergencies such as running or fighting. The widening of air passages makes it easier for the human being to breathe faster & get more oxygen. Blood is shifted from regions where it will not be needed during the emergency (the intestinal tract, for example) to skeletal & heart muscle which will need oxygen & blood sugar.

    The heart beats faster & stronger so that blood circulates through the muscles at a higher rate. Blood sugar is released from storage in the liver into the blood stream where it will be available to supply muscles with energy.

    In short, sympathetic stimulation prepares the man for emergencies, & in this process, increases the blood pressure, retards the function of digestive system & increases the sugar contents of the blood.

    The function of Parasympathetic nerves system is opposite to the sympathetic system “It widens the veins, releases noradrenalin hormones & generally retards activities.

    “The two nervous systems run parallel to each other & in co-operation from one part of the body to another. The co-operation of the two systems is essential for maintaining the equilibrium of the body, which in turn has a great bearing & effect on the physical & mental health of man.

    Should at any time there be a lack of co-operation between these two systems, physical or mental disorders could arise resulting in one disease or another.”

    Some actions or movements outside human body can adversely affect the natural equilibrium of these two systems. One of those things is music.

    A brisk & lively musical programme, particularly if it is accompanied by musical instruments, disturbs this equilibrium of the various systems; digestion is badly affected; palpitation of the heart is increased; blood pressure goes high & abnormal secretion of hormones leaves a lasting bad effect upon general health.

    Music stimulates mostly the sympathetic nervous system; & it may create insomnia (lack of sleep); it may cause tempers to flare-up; sudden laughter or nonsensical talks are amongst its possible effects. It may even lead to mania (a kind of madness)..

    Such people may be seen to move their hands & feet in dancing pattern even when not listening to music.

    Dr. Vollf Adler, who was a professor in the Columbia University, found out that a best melodious record of music can badly harm the nerves of a human body; & the warmer the weather the more the harm. He proved that music upsets the nervous systems unnaturally, & causes considerable fatigue.

    This research of Dr. Adler had a widespread effect on many Americans; many stopped listening to music altogether. The belief that music was harmful for a progressive nation like U.S.A., reached a stage when a member of the Senate proposed a resolution to ban the music in the country. Relevant proofs & arguments were put before the Senate. But in a nation steeped in lust & materialism, not many senators could be found to vote for that resolution.

  2. S O M E   O T H E R   A I L M E N T S   A N D   M U S I C

    It is an accepted fact that mental tension creates many ailments. Excitement & tension are like a fire which destroys the natural functions of human body.

    And it has already been shown that music creates excitement & tension.

    Not only , but even  are caused by mental tension.

    It has been mentioned earlier that music releases the hormone ‘adrenalin’ in abnormal quantity. This hormone clots the blood vessels, & finally leads to heart attack. This relation between excessive release of adrenalin & heart attack was discovered in France in 1957. (Falsafa-e-Tahrim-e-Musiqui).

    Professor Celie experimented by injecting adrenalin into a monkey.  (Ibid).

    Dale Carnegie quotes Dr. Joseph Montagu to have said that stomach ulcer is caused by mental tension & violent anger. (Ibid).

    Many of the present-day common diseases are the legacy of our so-called civilization which creates tension & exhausts the tolerance of physical & mental faculbes.. The ailments, which are caused by such condition, are diabetes, rheumatism, & even the birth of deformed or disabled children. (Ibid).

    Concentration on listening to musical concerts or Jazz bands at times causes such violent tension that mental stability is thrown out of window.

    The daily ‘Kayhan’ (Tehran), in its issue No 6626, published a news of the Reuter Agency: About 50,000 youths had gathered in Melbourne (Australia) for a musical concert. The concert overwhelmed them so much that they started assaulting each other with fists & knives. Many were seriously injured; some girls were molested The police was called in & with much difficulty controlled the situation. The point to ponder is this: The youths were so much excited that they did not know what they were doing.

    Now that we have come to Jazz, & important finding must be quoted here from The Reader’s Digest (Vol. 49, No. 565, May, 1969):

    “Otologists say that  by blasting their ears with electronic pop music.

    “Experts know that prolonged exposure to a noise level above 85 decibels will eventually  in the frequency range most important for understanding human speech. Dr. Charles Lebo, of the Pacific Medical Centre took measuring instruments into two San Francis co dance halls where the cacophony from amplified instruments caused sound intensity from 100 to 119 decibels in the low frequency range.

    “Lebo estimates that under such conditions 80 per cent have their hearing sensitivity temporarily reduced by 5 to 30 decibels; 10 per cent suffer a temporary 40 decibel impairment.  (Time).

    • Salam, brother Imran.
      May I ask, who are you, really? Mashallah for creating such an amazing mind like yours. I admire that. 🙂 I’m reading your blog right now, and impressed.
      Greetings and warm regards from Indonesia.

  3. I guess the Video is not in English hence havent watched it… But It’s somewhat my story too.
    I was associated with Bollywood Industry and was in the Music Scene. Alhumdulillah, its been a year I left Music and Live Performances and I wear a Beard too now 🙂
