Singing and dancing – Whither the elders?
When the children do something wrong, the elders correct them. But nowadays the situation is such that when the youngsters are busy in singing and dancing, the elders instead of restraining them show their appreciation by raining money on them. This most condemnable custom ought to be changed.
Marriage is sacred. It is a kind of worship as well. That’s the reason a sermon has been decreed during it. Decreeing a sermon in marriage demands that it be respected, that it creates fear and consciousness of Almighty Allah in our hearts and the life after marriage is spent with piety and devotion. It is the responsibility of Muslims that singing, dancing and all such un-Islamic customs should be removed from marriage celebrations.
Islam is a religion of culture and refinement which instructs every Muslims to remain dignified and modest. Thus, all our functions and celebrations should be free of sins and in accordance with the Sunnah.
