Ramadan: Songs You Should Delete On Your Phone During This Period



Spread the love

Ramadan is the Arabic name for the ninth month in the Islamic calendar.

It is considered one of the holiest Islamic months. It’s also one of the Five Pillars of Islam. These are five principles which Muslims believe are compulsory acts ordered by God.

Muslims believe that some of the first verses of the Islamic holy book, the Qu’ran, were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad during the month of Ramadan. Extra emphasis is placed on reciting the Qu’ran at this time.

Fasting is considered to be an act of worship, which enables Muslims to feel closer to God and strengthen their spiritual health and self-discipline.
Ramadan being considered as an act of worship and an era of cleanliness. There are songs you musn’t listen to during these period.

1. Naira Marley ft Busiswah – Coming


Although, Coming was initially banned within 12hours of its release. Coming happens to be a song with sex lyrics which could make someone to become horny in minutes. Islam doesn’t give audience for bad songs and lifestyles during this period of Ramadan. Trashing Coming by Naira Marley ft Busiswah would help you a lot. The main reason is that it contains explicit lyrics and Naira Marley page on Instagram is also a taboo for Muslims during this period.

2. Kilofeshe – Zinoleesky

Kilofeshe by Zinoleesky is a catchy record and a general favourite that was one of the biggest songs of the latter end of the previous year. But the song advises and advocates for the listener to do however they please and this goes against the core belief of Ramadan whereby personal desires and pleasures are to take a backseat.

So this holy period, you might want to have a rethink on doing as you please as the lines of the song say and rather, listen to the words of the Holy Quran which is the reason for the season.

3. Bounce – Rema

With the period of Ramadan comes the cautionary saying to ‘lower your gaze’ and also to ‘purify your intentions.’ These phrases are important where and when booties you have no business watching are concerned. So unlike Rema who was on a rampage for bouncing booties on his hit song Bounce, this Ramadan is a time to embark on a journey of holiness instead.

4. Naira Marley – Soapy

Soapy, as popularized by street-hop singer and rapper, Naira Marley simply means masturbation. This is a sin in Islam and during the Holy Month should be avoided as abstinence from sexual activity that isn’t between married couples is a no-no during the Holy Month.

5. Omah Lay – Ye Ye Ye

Scientists have made it known that despite being an activity from which pleasure may be derived, sex is also an energy-consuming activity. Well now it’s Ramadan and Allah would rather you convert that energy into consecrating yourself and worshipping him for pleasures beyond the bodily realm. As a result, it is advised you do away with any thoughts and actions which will sap your energy and holiness as you go ‘ye ye ye’ like Omah Lay in his explicit song, thus titled, about sex.
