"So abstain from the pollution of the idols and abstain from false vain words." (Ch. 22, V. 30) Some may argue for the permissibility of “light music” in Islam. However, this position is seriously questionable.

Quite often we tend to overlook the great importance and virtue of consuming halaal. The truth of the matter is, just one morsel of haram, that is carelessly eaten or drunk, can have devastating consequences.

Luqman (alayhis salam) is a well-known sage, whose advice to his son has been mentioned in the Noble Qur'an. Luqman's advice contains rare wisdom. The Qur’ân contains ten precious advices Luqman offered his beloved son.

Luqman’s (AS) full name was Luqman bin Anqa bin Sadun and his sons name was Tharan. Luqman was a wise and righteous man of African descent and was a distinguished man among his people. He was either from the area of Ethophia (Habshah), Nuba (south of Egypt) or Sudan. He was believed to live during the time of Prophet Dawood (AS). An entire chapter of the Quran is named after this great personality viz. Surah Luqman-Chapter 31.
