  2. Is the following correct?

    "We have with us a book called Ahadeeth ul-Ma`azif fil Meezan by Shaykh `Abdullah ibn Yusuf al-Juday al-Iraaqi which is a brilliant book having saheeh ahadeeth on this topic and he has deduced (the prohibition of music) from the ayahs of Qur`an al-Kareem…."

    Sheikh Juday is widely known to have very different views on music to the answer given.

    1. Akhi from what i have seen (from his book) is that he opposes and refutes Music. Could you inform me about the views/books you are talking about ?

    2. See below link which i believe is by the same sheikh juday and the same book

  3. Brother i called up Shaykh Zubayr's student now and informed him of the matter. He informed me about Shaykh Juday and his achievements. He is a famous `Aalim and has issued many books propagating salafiyyah such as Al `Aqeeda as-Salafiyya fli Kalam Rabbil Bariyya . The online link you gave doesn't really give a scan of his book to be sure so allahu `alam.
