The Use of Music in Islamic Religious Education

What is music? This question has been discussed through the history of Islam and different scholar have had and still have different answers to the question. In many ways music is a controversial question as music in some Islamic traditions is considered sinful. In other Islamic traditions music has always been an important part of worship. Within the contemporary discussion about music in Islam it is possible to find Islamic hiphop artists, pop stars as well as the total ban of every kind of music. These differences as well as the question about what is music are visible in the Islamic religious education taught at Muslim faith schools in Sweden. In this paper I discuss how music is used, what purpose it serves and how the teachers motivate the use of different kinds of music within Islamic religious education. The differences are construed in relation to the ideological positions of the teachers. The paper is based an ethnographic study in three different Muslim faith schools in Sweden.
