Hatred for Music and Dancing

Hazratjee Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) always hated singing and music. Once he narrated the following incident of his childhood:

“I was a young boy and fell off to sleep one night at home after the ‘Esha Salaah. The Hindus of the village began playing their loud music and my sleep was suddenly disturbed. I began crying in my bed and my paternal aunt came into my room to console me. She immediately went to my father’s quarters and woke him up saying: ‘Maseehullah is crying in his bed.’ My father retorted, ‘He is crying for nothing. Why is he worried about them? He should continue with his work as they are continuing with their work.’ My aunt insisted that he should go and stop them as I was going through great difficulty by having to listen to their blaring music. Eventually my father, who was very respected, as well as feared, by one and all in the village got up and went towards them. Just on seeing him they all immediately dispersed.” (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 11)
