In this short clip you can see Yusuf Chambers of iERA sternly warn his followers about the extreme dangers posed by music. He describes how it distracted him from his prayers until he realized the only solution was to stop listening completely:
And I’m telling you that from my own personal experience you’ve got to get music, you’ve got to kick it out. It is the calling of the Shaytan. It is one of the ways the Shaytan will put you off worshipping Allah and really establishing Islam in your lives…
Apparently Shaytan – or Satan – has other ingenious ways of misleading people from the true path. According to Presidential hopeful Ben Carson he was directly responsible for planting the theory of evolution in Darwin’s head.
“I personally believe that this theory that Darwin came up with was something that was encouraged by the adversary and it has become what is scientifically politically correct,” he said.
Carson has of course also been in the news for asserting that doesn’t think a Muslim should ever be president – although he has now sought to soften this stance.
