Anāshīd Are Not Islamic
Shaikh Ṣāliḥ Al-Fawzān, may Allāh protect him, said:
Calling anāshīd [chants] Islamic is wrong. Say “anāshīd” only [without calling them Islamic]. This is the view of the Sūfīs, [who have] turned singing into [a form] of worship [for themselves].
Sharḥ Ighāthah Al-Lahfān, 25-6-1437 H, as quoted by Shaikh Fawāz ibn ʿAlī Al-Madkhalī.
