    Every body knows.

    Anni : I want you to ask from all Maldivians, for thinking about bringing musicians from Sweden.

    its not Anni who is bringing musicians but he surely loves them a lot. And yes music is haraam and there is no doubt about it. if you really want to hear unimaginably beautiful compositions of music in an equally indescribable atmosphere of bliss, then be a true blooded muslim who is willing to forsake this trash-class enjoyments of this decaying world.. for our life in full is yet to be lived in the gardens of eden inshallah..
