Kanpur Dehat, Uttar Pradesh, Dec. 12: Muslim scholars have called upon Qazis (Ulama who are authorized to conduct Muslim marriages) to boycott marriages playing DJs or wedding bands (band-baja). At a meeting of the Muslim community, it was decided and declared that playing DJs is un-Islamic and that the Qazis should stop attending and solemnizing such nikahs (marriages).

Leading the call for the boycott are Maulana Anees ur Rahman, Imam Jama Masjid, and Maulana Sayyed Ali, Imam Noori Masjid of Kanpur Dehat, a district in the administrative division of Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh.

Speaking to a TV channel Maulana Anees ur Rahman said, “When it is impermissible (to play music), how can it be allowed?” Maulana Sayyed Ali added, “This decision has been taken in the interests of the community, for their benefit in this world and the hereafter.”

It may be recalled that prominent Muslim scholars have repeatedly declared that they will not officiate the nikah if there is singing and dancing in the ceremony. They emphasize that it is not compatible with the Islamic ethos and culture and results in israf (wasteful expenditure), which is considered haram (impermissible).

The Ulama feel that this will curb social vices within the Muslim community and the bride’s family will be saved from unnecessary financial expenditure.
