Haraam is a widely-used synopsis to define all that is forbidden by God. This can be an act of sin or evil or consumption or benefit from flesh or otherwise of certain animals, or those animals that are not forbidden deemed not to have been slaughtered in accordance to God's prescribed teaching. The most obvious example of things that are haraam or harām are products forbidden by Muslim dietary laws, such as alcohol[Qur'an 5:90] and pork[Qur'an 5:3], however, whether the said verse refers to alcohol or stronger intoxicants is debated.

Forms of Haraam

Other than alcohol and pork which are considered Haraam or illegal to consume in Islam there are a lot of other forms of haraam that are considered very sinful and are unlawful.


It is haraam to eat meat that was slaughtered without the name of Allah. Meat that is slain with the name of Allah is considered zabiha and is halal or lawful to eat. Dhabiha (, ) is the prescribed method of slaughtering all animals excluding fish and most sea-life per Islamic law. ... Halal (حلال, alāl, halaal) is an Arabic term meaning permissible. In the English language it most frequently refers to food that is permissible according to Islamic law. ...


Shirk is considered haraam and is the most forbidden act in Islam. It is when one equates something else with God. It is very sinful to commit shirk in Islam and it is not considered easily forgiven by God. This does not cite its references or sources. ...


It is also haraam to be a hypocrite in Islam. People that go around committing acts of violence, consuming alcohol or doing forbidden things and claiming that they are a Muslim are considered hypocrites. They insult what Islam really is and are not easily forgiven by God, but it is forgiven. Hypocrisy is the act of pretending to have beliefs, virtues and feelings that one does not truly possess. ...


Adultery is also very sinful in Islam and is considered haraam. It is forbidden in Islam for a man and a woman to have an illicit relationship and to have sex outside of marriage. This means no married man or woman can have an illicit relationship with someone other than their spouse and no form of homosexuality is allowed which is also haraam[1]. However, the Qur’an gives a man permission to have sexual relations with his wives: “The believers must (eventually) win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess, for (in their case) they are free from blame” (23:1-6). A Muslim is not to have sexual relations with a woman who is married to someone else “And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you” (4:24). This article is about the act of adultery. ...


Sex outside of marriage, though, is circumvented in the Qur'an by allowing prostitution, in the form of temporary marriages. "We used to participate in the holy wars carried on by the Prophet and we had no women (wives) with us. So we said (to the Prophet ). "Shall we castrate ourselves?" But the Prophet forbade us to do that and thenceforth he allowed us to marry a woman (temporarily) by giving her even a garment, and then he recited: "O you who believe! Do not make unlawful the good things which Allah has made lawful for you.""(Bukhari (60:139), quoting Sura (5:87)) Whore redirects here. ...



Wearing revealing clothes is also considered haraam. Women and even men have a duty to be modest in Islam and it is forbidden to wear clothes that accentuate the body. Women should cover and wear loose clothing that covers their private parts and should also wear a hijab over their head as a form of modesty. Men should not wear tight jeans or shorts that go above their knees. “Higab” redirects here. ...


Any act of violence, theft, threatening to hurt someone, fraudulent behavior, rape or being untruthful toward other Muslims is also haraam and extremely forbidden in Islam. Islam means submission and Muslims that act in such a way toward other Muslims are considered disbelievers.

In information theory, noise is a force that operates against the flow of information; it is the bringer of chaos determined to interfere with messages and disrupt narrative and order.
But in Haraam, the recent solo release by Nonhorse (aka G Lucas Crane), the play of noise vs. signal is seen not in the usual hierarchical perspective that personifies noise as an antagonistic villain purposely attempting to confuse and derail, but instead it presents an acoustic celebration and exploration of the phenomenon of disruption.
Like a good tight narrative, listening to Haraam from beginning to end gave me the sensation that I have experienced something real, and in the end I feel as if I fully comprehend the struggles of Nonhorse in the endeavor to make a whole out of a collection of found fragments.
