Music and Singing Haram?

Posted on: July 10, 2011


Every day the same quesions pops up 3-4 times.

Music is Not haram in Islam, Music Word Or Music is Haram Not Used In Quran.

The six verse, and the one most often referred to as evidence of the prohibition of music and singing (according to them) is found in Sura Luqmaan.

And of mankind is one who purchaseth an idle discourse, that he may mislead from Allahs way without knowledge, and taketh it by way of mockery. These! for them shall be a torment ignominious.(31:6)

Idle-talk can be any form of talk and not necessarily singing and music.Dead tales,conversations lifeless stories which never exist should not describe to people which lead them far away from Allah. There is usually more idle-talk that is calling on the people to disobey God in other forms than singing and music. These should be considered first.

Music is not haram in Islam. not even a single verse of Quran prohibits us to listen music. its all because of fabricated narrations written some 200 years after the death of prophet.

it is declared haram in sunnis/salafis/wahabis,because of hadith books say so !!

its only the assumption of some muslim scholar that it is haram.

That was just the Greedy OverPaid  Scholars all telling the confused audiencce to steer clear of music. Don’t heed them. Most money-grubbing scholars would typically tell you all to save money and donate most money to your fat-cat Imams and Mullahs – and especially to themselves.

And say not concerning that which your tongues put forth falsely: “This is lawful and this is forbidden,” so as to invent lies against Allâh. Verily, those who invent lies against Allâh will never prosper.

16 An-Nahl 128

Music Is Haram Only For Hadiths Believers.

Hadith – Bukhari 7:494

Narrated Abu ‘Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash’ari that he heard the Prophet saying, “From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks, and the use of musical instruments as lawful. And (from them), there will be some who will stay near the side of a mountain, and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, ‘Return to us tomorrow.’ Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and Allah will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection.” clearly making lawful means its haram don’t you think?

Salaam
No.and i don’t read hadiths and don’t believe in them.

The hadith is what the prophet mohammed peace be upon him said and did. The qur’an says:

“So take what the Messenger assigns to you and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you.” (Qur’ân 59:7)

“… And let those who oppose the Messenger’s commandment (i.e., his Sunnah) (among the sects) beware, lest some fitnah (disbelief, trials, afflictions, etc.) befall them or a painful torment be inflicted on them.” [al-Noor 24:63]

There are many more verses in the qur’an saying to follow the hadith and sunnah of the prophet. It says follow what he says and the hadith is a naration of what he says. If you are muslim, you MUST by the order of allah, belive in the AUTHENTIC hadith[i.e bukhari and muslim].

“And there are among men those who purchase idle talk in order to mislead others from Allah’s path without knowledge, and those who throw ridicule upon it. For such there will be a humiliating punishment.” (31:6)

Music is idle talk.
” Idle-talk can be any form of talk and not necessarily singing and music.”
True, it does not necissarally mean music, but music falls under the catigory of idle talk. Bottom line: Music IS haram!!!

SIR MUSICAL INTRUMENTS , WHAT KIND OF A MUSCIAL INSTRUMENTS ,,, DUFF IS LIKE THESE , BECAUSE AT THAT TIME THERE WERE NO PIANOS, GUITAR AND VIOLIN… AND IF SAY MUSICAL INRUTEMNTS THEN DUFF IS ALSO HARAM PLEASE READ THE BACKGROUND AS IF SOMETIME WE ARE ILL WE GO DEEP IN THE CAUSE OF THE ILNESS OR DISEASE. PLEASE GUIDE YOURSELF BY READING TO QURAN

Well, as you know, the prophet speaks what Allah tells him too, and Allah knows the future. Therefore, he obviously knows that pianos, guitars, ect, will exist. On the other hand, if those are not the instruments the hadith speaks about, then what are? Oh, and please don’t yell, brother:)

@sara awan!

MUSIC IS HARAM MEANS ITS HARAM!!!
ONLY DUFF CAN BE USED AND POEMS CAN B SUNG!

MUSIC THAT INVOLVES PIANO DRUMS ETC IS HARAM… and LEADS TO HARAM STUFFS!
USE UR LOGIC MISS SARA! WHEN U LISTEN TO POP MUSIC WHICH USE THESE INSTRUEMENTS, DOESNT IT MAKE U TO DANCE and ENJOY THE BEATS?
DOES THIS MUSIC NOT DISTRUB UR SALAH?!

and why dont u believe in hadiths?

first rah what music ki bahut kismein hain … what is music tell me , what kind of a music is haram , duff kia drum nahi hai , please also use your logic ,when ever u listern to any sound whether its quran or music or song its leaves an impact on you , kia aap pay impact nahi hota , second i have seen people woh listern to music and its dosent disturb their sallah, dont blame on music, think

i would like to point out about what you have double talked in your blog..

it says
“Idle-talk can be any form of talk and not necessarily singing and music. There is usually more idle-talk that is calling on the people to disobey God in other forms than singing and music”

Dont you think these music has idle talks.. Sinful lyrics!??

rah kia aap ko knowldege hai music kay baray mein jo aap baat kar rahay ho first get some knowledge on it , no music is not idle talk coz music has its own language singing and music are two different things , music is sound so its does not come into ldle talk , second singing is what we sing in the form of poetry , we sing poetry not music sir please clear yourself before point on somebody else. and not every poetry has sinful lyrics please

Just pointing out a fact you guys may already know….Prophet Daud (David) PBUH. used to play music and sing, in fact it was one of his specialty….So do you think Allah would forbid music whereas one of the most significant prophet mentioned in the Qur’an is known to be gifted with music…. As i know Prophet Daud used a harp which is stringed instrument, and also could perform miracles with his music….plz correct me if I’m wrong……one thing about Hadith is that there is possibility that some of them may have been manipulated..So, I’m not a disbeliever of hadith but I try to use logic as-well because Allah has also given us brain and and asked us to use it.

Exactly! Hadith collection is a man-made construct with a grading system. They can be easily be fallible!

It’s also insane to label someone a kafir for rejecting narrations that conflict with their rational thinking and common sense.

The transmission of the Qur’an is 100% undisputed by all the sheikhs and sects, there’s no doubt that Allah’s word is final. Whatever Allah says is regarded as the truth. The Qur’an should always be the first word on everything.

There’s supposed to be an alleged hadith on people who listen to music, that they’ll get molten lead in their ears if they choose to do so. I find it hard to believe that beautiful songs like “Fields of Gold” or “Ode to Joy” are enough to burn one in hell.

Assalamu alaikum.
I am just curious, buy were in the quran does it say that prophet dawud used to play music?

YAAR SUB UN LGOON KI CHAAL HAI JO MUSIC SUNTaY HAIN AUR SONGS BHI PAR WOH BARDASTH NAHI KARTAY KAY HUM TUM SUNEIN ,AFSOOS HAI UN LOGN PAY

IAGREE WITH YOU BUT BRO WE DONT USE LOGICS AND BRAINS WHEN IT COMES TO ISLAM !!! BECAUSE WE ARE SO CALLED MUSLIMS

all of you clear your confusion here:

salam
can u discuss that music issue without hadiths. just according to Quran

Sara Awan,how many times we must pray is mention in Quran, but how to pray is elobrated and explained in Hadith, since you don’t believe in hadith, Was wondering what style you have adopted to perform your salaah,seems like too much hakim luqmans are here on this forum.

i only do zikr ,when i sleep at night or morning i lay in prostrating style and face up to the sky.
