Is Tassa drumming haram? Are there any arts/cultural acts of our Indian heritage that are permissible to participate in without violating the sharia?
Tassa drumming is haram in Islam. Islam is a complete way of life which came directly from Allah for the guidance, success and salvation of man. Culture and arts have been created and invented by men, and hence, has no place in any revealed religion. What we see as cultural acts of Indian heritage are not permissible in Islam. They all violate the teachings of our sacred shariah.
And Allah knows best
