    Re: Is music really haram?

    Walakium Salaam brother. What better sounds are there than the sounds of the Quran? Taken this from the Islam IQ site.

    1) The Narration of al-Bukhaaree:

    The Prophet sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam said :
    "There will be [at some future time] people from my Ummah who will seek to make lawful fornication, the wearing of silk, wine drinking and the use of musical instruments [ma'aazif]. Some people will stay at the side of the mountain and when their shepherd comes in the evening to ask them for his needs, they will say : 'Return to us tomorrow'. Then Allaah will destroy them during the night by causing the mountain to fall upon them, while He changes others into apes and swine. They will remain in such a state until the Day of Resurrection."

    al-Jowhari, the author of the ancient dictionary 'as-Sihaah', asserts that ma'aazif signifies musical instruments, al-'aazif indicates one who sings, and the 'azf of the wind is its voice..

    Az-Zabeedi also says that ma'aazif are instruments of leisure which are drummed upon or played, like the loot ('ood) , the drum (tanboor), the small hand drum (daff) or other such musical objects.

    Ibn Hajar in Fathul-Baaree relates that 'azf is also used to describe singing (ghinaa).

    This authentic hadeeth clearly establishes the prohibition of music and singing and this in itself is sufficient for the one who really wishes to see the Truth of the affair.


    Brother, don't try to quantify your sins. It's not a game where you are tallying up points. Each sin is huge, particularly when you add them up. Try your best to avoid music, Inshallah with time you will get used to it.

      The are many Ahadith of the blessed Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) which prohibit music and the usage of musical instruments to the extent that some scholars have gathered approximately forty Ahadith, of which the chain of transmission of some is authentic (sahih), some sound (hasan) and some weak (da’if). We will only mention a few here:

      1) Sayyiduna Abu Malik al-Ash’ari (Allah be pleased with him) reports that he heard the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) say: “There will appear people in my Ummah, who will hold adultery, silk, alcohol and musical instruments to be lawful.” (Sahih al-Bukhari)

      2) Abu Malik al-Ash’ari (Allah be pleased with him) narrates a similar type of Hadith, but a different wording. He reports that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “Soon there will be people from my Ummah who will consume alcohol, they will change its name (by regarding it permissible. m), on there heads will be instruments of music and singing. Allah will make the ground swallow them up, and turn them into monkeys and swine.” (Sahih Ibn Hibban & Sunan Ibn Majah, with a sound chain of narration)

      In the above two narrations, the word ma’azif is used. The scholars of the Arabic language are unanimous on the fact that it refers to musical instruments. (Ibn Manzur, Lisan al-Arab, V.9, P.189)

      The prohibition of musical instruments is clear in these two narrations. The first Hadith (recorded in Sahih al-Bukhari) mentions that certain people from the Ummah of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give peace) will try to justify the permissibility of using musical instruments, along with adultery, silk and alcohol, despite these things being unlawful (haram) in Shariah.

      Moreover, by mentioning music with the likes of adultery and alcohol just shows how severe the sin is. The one who attempts to permit music is similar to the one who permits alcohol or adultery.

      The second Hadith describes the fate of such people in that the ground will be ordered to swallow them and they will be turned into monkeys and swine (May Allah save us all). The warning is specific to those that will hold music, alcohol, silk and adultery to be permissible. It is something that should be of concern for those who try and justify any of these things.

      Also, to say that music will only be unlawful if it is in combination with alcohol, adultery and silk is incorrect. If this was the case, then why is it that the exception is only for music from the four things? The same could also be said for adultery, alcohol and silk. One may then even justify that alcohol and adultery is also permissible unless if they are consumed in combination with the other things!

      Thus, the above two narrations of the beloved of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) are clear proof on the impermissibility of music and songs.

      3) Imran ibn Husain (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “This Ummah will experience the swallowing up of some people by the earth, metamorphosis of some into animals, and being rained upon with stones”. A man from amongst the Muslims asked: “O Messenger of Allah! When will this be?” He said: “When female singers and musical instruments appear and alcohol will (commonly) be consumed.” (Recorded by Imam Tirmidhi, Imam Ibn Majah in their respective Sunan collections, and the wording here is of Sunan Tirmidhi)

      4) Sayyiduna Ali ibn Talib (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the blessed Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “When my Ummah begin doing fifteen things, they will be inflicted with tribulations, and (from those 15 things He said): “When female singers and musical instruments become common.” (Sunan Tirmidhi)

      5) Na’fi reports that once Abd Allah ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with them both) heard the sound of a Sheppard’s flute. He put his fingers in his ears, turned his mule away from the road and said: “O Nafi’! Can you hear? I (Nafi’) replied with the affirmative. He carried on walking (with his fingers in his ears) until I said: “the sound has ceased” He removed his fingers from his ears, came back on to the road and said: “I saw the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) doing the same when he heard the flute of the Sheppard.” (Recorded by Imam Ahmad in his Musnad and Abu Dawud & Ibn Majah in their Sunans)

      6) Sayyiduna Abd Allah ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “Verily Allah has forbidden alcohol, gambling, drum and guitar, and every intoxicant is haram.” (Musnad Ahmad & Sunan Abu Dawud)

      7) Abu Umama (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give peace) said: “Allah Mighty and Majestic sent me as a guidance and mercy to believers and commanded me to do away with musical instruments, flutes, strings, crucifixes, and the affairs of the pre-Islamic period of ignorance.”(Musnad Ahmad & Abu Dawud Tayalisi)

      8) Sayyiduna Abd Allah ibn Mas’ud (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “Song makes hypocrisy grow in the heart as water does herbage.” (Sunan al-Bayhaqi)

      9) Sayyiduna Anas (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give peace) said: “On the day of Resurrection, Allah will pour molten lead into the ears of whoever sits listening to a songstress.” (Recorded by Ibn Asakir & Ibn al-Misri)

      10) Sayyiduna Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “Bell is the flute of Shaytan.” (Sahih Muslim & Sunan Abu Dawud)

      There are many more narrations of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give peace) in prohibition of musical instruments and unlawful singing. I have merely mentioned a few here as an example.

      The great Imam of the Shafi’i school, Imam Ibn Hajr al-Haytami gathered all these Ahadith which approximately total to forty in his excellent work ‘Kaff al-Ra’a an Muharramat al-Lahw wa al-Sama’, and then said: “All of this is explicit and compelling textual evidence that musical instruments of all types are unlawful.” (2/270)

        Its not haram, search in the Quran. If you find it tell me, because these hadith prohibit things that Allah did not. And Allah will be the one to judge not el Bukhari or anyone else

                  Bukhari did not make these hadith up neither did any other scholar of hadith. They have existed since the time of the Prophet :saw: and many sahaba wrote them down and had collections.

                  People like you should learn about hadith before you ignorantly start trashing them because they say what which you do not like.

                    Im a muslim. Since we worship Allah and him alone, and in his message (Quran) he did not forbid music. How can someone else claim its haram? Even though I dont believe most of these hadith are from the prophet Muhammad, since they are fabricated as they contradict the Quran.

                    When Allah says something is haram, there is a reason. Now tell me, why is music haram? If its haram and we will be punished for it, then why didnt Allah tell us not to listen to it? Why did he wait for over 200 years after the death of the prophet for Bukhari and some other men to write some books claiming that the prophet forbid music. How do you know these collected hadith that contradict the Quran to be authentic. Even of its authentic, the prophet would never say something is haram unless its in the Quran since his main purpose was to send the message of Allah to the people.

                    How am I a hypocrite? Because I dont follow the religion the way these corrupt imams, scholars and sheikhs do?

                      At this rate it wouldn't take long till you're not, actually even right now it's highly doubtful.

                      Since we worship Allah and him alone, and in his message (Quran) he did not forbid music. How can someone else claim its haram? Even though I dont believe most of these hadith are from the prophet Muhammad, since they are fabricated as they contradict the Quran.

                      Even you take a lot of prohibitions from ahadith, you're just a hypocrite. You pick and choose.

                      When Allah says something is haram, there is a reason. Now tell me, why is music haram? If its haram and we will be punished for it, then why didnt Allah tell us not to listen to it?

                      In your dreams kid. This shows how ignorant and stupid you are. There is ijmaa' of the sahaba on music being haraam before Imam Bukhari Rahimahullah the preserver of the sunnah was even born.

                      How do you know these collected hadith that contradict the Quran to be authentic. Even of its authentic, the prophet would never say something is haram unless its in the Quran since his main purpose was to send the message of Allah to the people.

                      Stop being a hypocrite. You take many prohibitions from ahadith even if you don't realize it.

                      How am I a hypocrite? Because I dont follow the religion the way these corrupt imams, scholars and sheikhs do?

                        I dont believe anything the ahadith forbid, so stop making assumptions. I dont pick and choose.

                            Nope. I never agreed on a hadith that said something is haram not mentioned in the Quran.
