Saudi Arabia: Edicts on music wade into controversy


A fatwa by a Saudi scholar banning participation in prayers led by an imam who held the view that music was not forbidden in Islam has waded into controversy.

Shaikh Adel Al Kalbani last week said that music was tolerated in Islam and that people could listen to songs.

However, his view was promptly resisted by conservative religious scholars and social media users who said that the pro-music fatwa was not valid.
