Repeat Ifreet

145

Dear Islamica,

I’m not sure where to turn. I’m really embarrassed to get advice from my friends or family because I don’t think they’ll understand. Every time I try to pray, I hear my favorite N’Sync song playing over and over again in my head. I try to block it out, but it’s hopeless. I need help! How do I say “Bye, Bye, Bye” to the song forever repeating in my head??

– Repeet Ifreet

This is what you get for listening to bad music. Music like this (if you consider it to be music) is probably the reason many Muslims only consider the drum (daf or duff) permissible.

After all, when’s the last time you’ve had some daf stuck in your head? Unless, of course, your name is Homer Simpson.
