    why should we not give da'wa to a na'at khawan?

    if Muslims make a mistake, at least we should make the effort to correct them

    it could be possible that a na'at khawan has been misled. whose job is it to bring him back to the right path? we should at least ask for clarification about someone's acts, to which i see no evidence

    anyone who joins dr tahir is to be banished? it does not matter if there are hundreds of sunni scholars giving da'wa against dr tahir, there can still be well known people who are misled easily

    AbdalQadir time to move along! will check pm's.

    the least he could have done was come up with his own rhythm rather than stealing it from bollywood (which probably also stole it from hollywood/west)

    i'm just talking generally. we perhaps shouldn't advertise on a poster that a nasheed 'artist' will attend. a nasheed reciter is much better for me.

    as for the fakes: i get your point, AQ, but what message does it give our kids? they will turn up to the masjid for a jalsa and see a nasheed 'artist' and this goes into their subconcious that it's ok to commercialise na'ats etc.

    it's ok to wear a trendy hat, have a kafir style beard and hold the mic like the kafir popstars and it must be ok because our masjid invited this guy.

    i was talking about the message it gives to our undiscerning youth...

    i can't wait for the day when a mujahid sunni scholar openly blasts these na'at khwans we invite from pakistan who are only here to make money. but, it's not a one man job anymore. all the ulama need to be united on this and no matter what, they shouldn't invite anyone to a jalsa who isn't 100% sunni, whose beard is short, who sits with sulah kullis or is sulah kulli himself and performs na'ats like it's a pop concert.

    i don't.

    given the times and how much we've been let down in the name of Sunnism, i think it's a great thing. they will at least honestly be saying who they really are

    i also suggest the following titles:

    Ash3ari artist
    Mawlid artist
    kalam artist
    3aqidah artist
    fiqh artist
    wa3z artist
    khutbah artist
    nasheed artist
    scholarly performer
    da3wah artist
    purification of the heart artist
    tasawwuf artist
    interfaith dialogue artist
    creative writing Islamic scholarly spin-doctor
    na3t concerts
    nasheed concerts
    hadrah concerts

    ... add more

    a lot of the "scholarly" people we know in these times are excellent artists and performers. they have made an entire "halal-certified entertainment industry"

    This is actually a good point brother. I also agree.

    is it me being pedantic again or is it better to call na'at and nasheed reciters 'reciters' instead of 'artists' because the latter leads our minds towards pop artists etc.
