    Any chance that you might feel inclined to tell us why it would be such a thing?

    You might want to consider that by expecting others to "prove you wrong" as opposed to presenting your case for consideration you may easily appear arrogant and therefore readily dismissable.

    You know, Al-Queda made it a point to destroy music, and just art in general, when they seized areas in Afghanistan. ISIS does similar things.

    You really are not painting a good picture of yourself with a thread like this.

    Are we talking Rap and Country and Western? Because I can see Rap and Country and Western as tools of Satan.








    J/K there are some good songs in both genres. Not my favorite genres, though.

    In the "Heavenly Choir"? But the same as books, control the publishing houses and you can control what media gets published. And it all comes back to money.

    You know....Shaytan, who was cast out of heaven, after he refused to prostrate before Adam.

    Music with instruments and poetry.

    There are many versions of Satan. I'm guessing that in your definition Satan is evil? That's not uncommon, I just don't want to jump to any conclusions.

    I understand that some Muslims interpret Islamic scripture in such a way that music is considered to be bad - and the Quran certainly hints at that. Why do you think music is Satan's tool?

    Music is a distraction. So, how is it not a tool?

    Why? Is it because you love music?

    How is music good for our society? It kind of addiction. I see this one guy at the gym who is constantly into music. I believe he loses he surroundings because he is way to in it.

    Plus, there is a song that plays every day at the gym. The hook goes like this "Sign with the devil, sign with the devil, sign with the devil."

    I appreciate culture, and music has been an integral part of human culture since forever.

    There you go, making broad, baseless assumptions again.

    Studies have proven that listening to music actually allows us to concentrate better than without it.

    Well, you're not the first one to consider the evils of music.

    Does Jazz Put the 'Sin' in Syncopation?

    SovietChild, you want to impoverish your life by removing from it all potential "tools of Satan" on the grounds they are "distractions" from your god? I'm sure your god wanted to create you so that you could restrict your life -- the life he gave you -- to a teacup.

    How ironic that you deny life and consider that to honor the deity you believe gave you the life you deny!

    Sure, it relaxes one, and it gives one a good feeling but is everything that relaxes us is good for us? Probably not.
