Hundreds of students attending a Hisham Abbas concert on Tuesday night at the Nile Academy campus in Mansoura, capital of the Daqahliya governorate in Egypt's Delta region, were surprised when popular Islamic scholar Hazem Shoman entered the stage uninvited to condemn the event, which he described as 'monkar', or sinful. 

Shoman occupied the stage and told the audience that singing is 'haram', or forbidden, to which the students responded with chants against the scholar.

In an effort to prevent clashes between the students and Shoman’s supporters, the academy's vice president Mohamed Abdel Ghaffar and security officials escorted the scholar from the venue after discussions. 

Tuesday night's incident was not the first of its kind for the Islamic scholar who had previously crashed a fine arts party at Mansoura University's College of Pharmacy in the name of Islam. 

Shoman had also claimed presidential hopeful Mohamed ElBaradei's son-in-law is Christian in an attempt to tarnish the candidate's reputation among Muslims.

Responding to Mr.Ahmed
Tell me Mr.Ahmed was Hisham Abbas going to sing Hymns of David or Nasheed ? I bet none of that. The only permissible form of Music in Islam are the one that praises Allah Subhanu wa Tala and songs about his Messengers (SA) and only form musical instrument allowed is an open faced Duff. I am sure Hisham Abbas was going to sing about none of that or was not going to play with Duff. Know your facts right brother.

Music in Islam
Hymns of Prophet David echoing in the mountains have been referred to in the Holy Quran and there is no mention of banning the music has been made. Then how come this "scholar" is making such a hue and cry. What he is preaching does not represent the laws of Islam.
