    Is this about explaining why you don't listen to music?

      Allah knows best, but it may be better to explain to a "non-Muslim" that the phenomenon of "harmony" "melody" "rhythm" "tone" "dynamics" are intended for the recitation and worship of Allah AWJ.

      These elements occur in nature: the melody of the song bird, the rhythm of the heart, the tone and dynamic of the lion's roar, etc. Man duplicates and has the capacity to arrange and compose.

      These elements are most likely intended for the beautification and elevation of the words of Allah AWJ. The first Man was Adam who worshipped Allah and spoke and recited the words of Allah long before any instrument or vile song occurred. And the most beautiful voice every heard by a human was the voice of the Prophet Da`ud in recitation of the Holy revelations of Allah.
      And the most everlasting and most holy words for mankind now are from the Holy Quran.

      So the capacity to compose and arrange and perform in Mankind is really intended for the recitation and beautification of the Words of Allah AWJ, but are wrongly used and wasted on what has become an evil empire and global industry of music, used by the enemies of Allah.
      Allahumma, aranee al haqqu haqqan wa arzuqnee itiba`ahu, wa aranee al baatilu baatilaan wa arzuqnee ijtinaabahu.Oh Allah! show us the truth as true, and inspire us to follow it. Show us falsehood as falsehood, and inspire us to abstain from it.
      " Do you know what destroys Islam? A mistake made by a scholar, the argument of a hypocrite in writing and the ruling of leaders who wish for people to stray

        best is just say that is your religious belief.

        If you are trying to to get a non-muslim to agree with you on this, that is not going to happen so best not even to try.

            I don't know, but I'd be interested to know. I know it's haram and I obey the ruling but I don't really know why.

            Just for clarity, I'm not referring to vulgar lyrics and music videos but maybe even orchestral music, classical and jazz.

              It's a side issue, explain that you don't listen to music because it is prohibited by Allah, and that you try to submit yourself to Him alone.

              Try to turn the conversation back to tawhid in other words.

                I've not been able to find the reason why music is haraam either, however, I assume it's because of 1 or more of the following:

                1. It takes your thoughts away from the remembrance of Allah while listening to it.

                2. When not listening to it, the tune in your mind keeps your thoughts away from the remembrance of Allah.

                3. Listening to music can lead to dancing, which can lead to dancing in groups, which can lead to night clubs where many immoral things are done such as adultery, fornication, drugs, alcohol, free mixing, the wearing of inappropriate cloths etc.

                4. Going back to the night club example, music sometimes seems to cause emotions to go crazy, in some cases similar to being intoxicated.

                  From what i've heard of the scholars speak about it. It relates to the ayah below:

                  Surah 17:64

                  "And incite [to senselessness] whoever you can among them with your voice and assault them with your horses and foot soldiers and become a partner in their wealth and their children and promise them." But Satan does not promise them except delusion".

                  They key part being your voice. I've heard many scholars refer to it as music. As it entices emotion out of us.

                  I could be wrong. Allah knows best


                  Edit: I would also look into the story of Sheeth and how music was created to deviate from the path of god.

                  Edit: And to answer your question. No clue since they don't believe in iblis. Good luck with that one.

                    It's haraam because Allah prohibited it. And Allah is Wise in whatever thing He does. Now it's up to us whether we will obey our Creator or disobey Him.
                    If following Aḥmad makes me a 'Wahhābī', then I declare that I am one.

                      Easy. You tell him or her that MUSIC IS HARAM. Then tell them to be prepared to live a life of restraint and hardship and dedication. Being Muslim is not easy by any means. And tell them that Islam is about submission to God's will and that we must do what God wants not what we want. And tell him or her that if anyone transgresses and desires this dunya over the Akhira, then they will enter a BLAZING FIRE! :frown-new:

                        Music is not actually haram. I do not understand why people spread this misinformation about Islam.This is another reason what makes nonmuslims to escape from Islam. There are only some Haram types of music such as hard rock which make you behave aggressively . This belief came from the past where Arabians played music to dance girls but this does not mean listening to music is haram. There are some music which I listen frequently such as slow types which make me feel better and remember Allah. There is nothing wrong here.

                            Music is pollution of the brain
                            Music and Quran cannot coexist in the same brain.
                            When u listen to music it will gradually drive out the Quran from your mind.
                            And when you listen to the Quran regularly, you will start to dislike music.

                              The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Among my ummah there will certainly be people who permit zinaa, silk, alcohol and musical instruments…” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari ta’leeqan, no. 5590; narrated as mawsool by al-Tabaraani and al-Bayhaqi. See al-Silsilah al-Saheehah by al-Albaani, 91).

                              Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humbly submissive at the remembrance of Allah and what has come down of the truth? And let them not be like those who were given the Scripture before, and a long period passed over them, so their hearts hardened; and many of them are defiantly disobedient. (57:16)
