  • Dr. Subhi Ibrahim Sharqawi


This Research Indicates That The Islamic Religion Has An Unprecedented Cognitive Vision Of The Concepts Of Art And Aesthetics, And That The Perfectionism Of Islam Is Reflected In Its Comprehensiveness And Integration Of Aspects Of Life, And That Those Who Intend To Talk About The Arts In Their Various Audio And Visual Forms Misused The Term Of Forbiddance; Because There Are Many Qur’anic Texts That Have Not Been Precisely Interpreted To What They Really Refer In Terms Of The Understanding Of Those Who Possess The Rational-Legal Ruling.

The major challenge we face in

Directing The Arts In Its Correct Direction In Accordance With The Objectives Of Islamic Law Is Mainly Caused By What The State Of Art Has Ended Up With Today, From The Reduction Of Its Message And Its Function, To What Is Represented In Video Clip Songs, Hot Movie Scenes, And Other Aspects Of Cheap, Vulgar Art, And Its Distancing From The Constants Of The Nation, And Its Identity And Its Concerns, It Is A Situation Worthy Of Research, Analysis, And Study, And What Made Matters Worse Is What We Are Witnessing Today Of Frenzied Campaigns Against The Nation’s Culture, Especially Its Islamic Arts, Which The Principles Of Islam Had An Impact On Its Formulation And Preservation Of Its Independent Entity.

The Research Mainly Addresses Music And Singing, How And The Importance Of Employing This Art And Resiling It To The Origin It Should Be In Terms Of Islamic Standards Of Art And In Line With The Islamic Aesthetic Theory And Its Features Represented In The Connection Of Beauty With Truth And Faith, And The Negation Of The Utility Of Adornment, Aesthetic Enjoyment, And Transcendence Of Class, And Finally The Aesthetic Of Hearing From The Position Of Music In The Muslim World, Music, And Musicians From The Standpoint Of  Islamic Law Which Aims At Placing Art At Its Zenith To Achieve Well-Fare And Well-Being Of Human Life.
