ALPRAISE IS FOR ALLAH. SO MUCH GOOD ADVICE I PRAY MY GREAT LORD GIVES ME THE BLESSING TO FOLLOW THE GUIDENCE, MAY THE SHAYKH BE REWARDED GREATLY FOR HIS GOOD EFFORTS.SALAAMS TO ALL MY MUSLIM FAMILY OUT THERE.
Subhan Allah! I am very impressed with Shk Nuh’s speech. He is absolutely correct about pictures, TV etc. and their broad reaching impacts on faith and true knowledge. When he speaks about the effects of computers on children’s brains, learning under pratical teachers rather than cyber-training and games, he speaks for the few of us who feel outnumbered by the “nerds” in Silicon Valley that want their children to start using computers at a very young age. Shk Nuh should slecture the school teachers at Granada Islamic School Santa Clara, because these poor folks need enlightenment in this area.
Assalaamu Wa-alaikum my brother. I was listening to a few lectures and I just noticed that right at the very bottom of the page of your website, there are these words; “© 2007 Halal Tube | Powered by Allah | Disclaimer | Suggestions?”
I immediately found this offensive as I believe that the whole site is human-powered and therefore if there are any mistakes, it will be by us-even though we may have the best of intentions to spread Islam.Do you not think that saying that halal tube is powered by Allah is a bit too extravagant and it seems to imply that it is indeed the work of Allah- when indeed, it is an effort by a few of his slaves trying to do good. Please tell me I’m not looking into it too much. It has troubled me and as my duty and intention of good faith I thought I would bring it to your attention. I apologise if I have upset you in any way-this was not my intention. I am the worst of men and really have no right to tell anyone anything. I have no formal education or a degree but of what little I do know, this statement has caused me concern.
Wa alaikum Assalam dear brother.
I agree with brother Mohammed Raqeeb. The phrase “Powered by Allah” should be modified, e.g have something like: Powered by servants of Allah” or something better.
Hope you dont find the suggestion offensive
Al-praise is for ALLAH AZZA WA JAL alone. My dear respected brothers every-thing that is, and every-thing that isn’t all things seen and unseen are powered by OUR ALLAH may HE be for-ever honored, but most men know not. no offens my brothers. your elder sister in faith Tahirah Amatullah Goldsmith
I find this argument on photography to be weak. (Mind you, I like Sh. Nuh and I generally find him to be compelling).
While there are very obvious misfortunes that come with inappropriate use of images (in photography, drawing, and film), it’s no different than many other things which can be (ab)used freely. Money, weapons, etc.
The ahadith are not elaborated on here and they need to be addressed with more context and detail.
I’m 100% with him on the fact that society is increasingly dumber and less able to think independently as a consequence of television. (I don’t own one, by the way.)
But overall, this isn’t an especially compelling argument for the prohibition of images. The argument against music is FAR more powerful and compelling.
