Asalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Respected Mufti Sahab, as an arts teacher in Islamic School, for kids aged 5-7 years, we try to practice and sing along one nasheed once a month just for a change from Secular Studies. This month I was thinking of doing a nasheed on expressing our love for Rasoolallah(saws) since love theme is everywhere around these days be it in stores, libraries, public schools etc.
I’m particularly referring to this nasheed 👇🏻
But I donot understand whether it’s fine or will I be unknowingly promoting the theme of this month?
Should I do some other nasheed which is not about love like “Amantu Billahi…”; “ALLAH created everything…” etc?
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
We take note of the details of your query. You should not specifically choose a nasheed regarding love in the enquired situation for the month of February. As Muslims, we stay far from any form of emulation with the non-Muslims and their religious cultures. You should choose an alternative nasheed.
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
