  Naught for Naats.
There is a mosque very near my house that is blaring out naats right now prior to the khutba for the Friday prayers. I must say, I don’t really approve of this noise pollution. I have nothing against naats or anything, but why do I have to be forced to listen to them being sung by totally untrained voices at full blast? I wish you could hear them. Different people who have absolutely no aesthetic sense are singing them one after the other. It seems like a free-for-all, as if they’re inviting anyone who is willing to come off the street and lend their scratchy, out-of-tune voices to the mic. It sounds horrible, I’m sorry to day. Naats, when sung properly by someone who knows what they are doing can sound very nice, but I’ve rarely heard such performances. I’m all for spirituality, but this does nothing for me, except annoy me.
