is whistling haraam in Islam?

Q. What is the ruling on people whistling and clapping their hands in parties?

A. This practice appears to be taken from non-Muslims; therefore, it is not an appropriate thing for a Muslim to do.  When a Muslim is joyful about something , he says ALLAHUAKBAR(ALLAH IS THE GREATEST), OR SUBHANALLAH(HOW PERFECT ALLAH IS!).

Furthermore, it is incorrect to say 'Allahuakbar' in unison with a group , as some people do.  A person should say this by himself;  there is no basis to saying so in unison with others.
