Do Muslims really abhor music and entertainment?

The answer to your question is definitely  a NO. Muslims do not abhor music or entertainment. If you look at Islamic History & Quran, Islam acknowledges four most important prophets in History :-

  1. Prophet Mohammed(Quran)
  2. Prophet Muses or Musa(Tawrat)
  3. Prophet Dawud(Zabur)
  4. Prophet Isa or Jesus(Bible or Injil)

Even though Islam Acknowledges a very large number of Prophets only these four came with a Book from God or Allah. Thus the importance of these four is much more than any other Prophets. 


Now if you study Prophet Dawud he was blessed by the almighty with a sweet voice and he propagated the teachings of Zabur(the Book he was enlightened with) using ancient hymns and spiritual songs.  When Allah himself blessed his prophet with a sweet voice so that he could spread his message how can he be against music ?


Secondly if you look at Islamic history Sufi Music is an important part of it. Sufism and Sufi Music have spread more Islam than any King with Sword could do. Thus Islam in its true sense is never against Music.


However Islam does not support vulgarism nor does any sane person. Entertainment/music which is vulgar  is discouraged by every religion. The Fanatics of any religion misinterpret the holy Scriptures and thus create confusion in the minds of gullible followers.  No religion is hateful it is the fanatics who interpret it as such, for the fulfilment of their vested interests.
