Ask Mufti Menk - Is Music Haram?
Here’s What Quran And Hadith Teach Us About Listening To Music!
For decades, music has become an important part of our daily lives. However, we always listen to our parents telling us on how music is prohibited in Islam. Having said that, if listening to music is prohibited in Islam, then why do Muslims indulge in it so easily and frequently? It has been observed that music is considered as one of the most controversial debates in Islam. This particular debate has divided people on the basis of two perceptions. The first perception is people believing that Islam has strictly prohibited music. The second one is people thinking that it is legalized.
What Does Islam Say About Music?
Is Music Allow In Islam? by Dr. Zakir Naik
The answer is simply, no they are not. If we read the Quran, we do not find any reference to a prohibition of music or the arts. God, the best Designer , has created living beings with musical abilities, and has placed soothing sounds in nature all around us. Whether it is the beautiful songs of birds who glorify God or the chirping of insects or the rustling of a brook, we know that all of these come from God. Humans too have been blessed with the ability to sing, and furthermore to design and play instruments. Yet, the researcher could argue, having an ability by itself is not a sound criterion to judge whether something should be forbidden or not. Rather, one must examine what God says and use that as our only guiding principle.
