Sankirtana in the Holy Koran

In this quote Srila Prabhupada, the founder of the world wide Hare Krishna movement speaks of how the chanting of the Holy names of God is part of Islamic tradition also.

Srila Prabhupada: In Muhammadan religion also, dancing and singing is forbidden. I do not know what is there in the Bible, but I understand in the Bible there is sankirtana allowed. I have asked our Kirtanananda to write some article, "Sankirtana and Bible," because he is..., he knows Bible very well than other members. So we shall see very nice how in Bible there is sankirtana. The Muhammadan Koran, they do not... In some of their sections there is sankirtana, not within the mosque, but without.

(Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 7.39–47 – February 5, 1967, San Francisco)
