Proof Showing That Music is Haraam

There is a great difference of opinion as far as the Muslims are concerned whether the music is allowed or not whether it's permit or not but there is no Verse in the Quran directly prohibiting music but there are indications.

Allah says in the Quran in Surah Luqman (Chapter no 31, Verse no 6) it says that among them there are those people who purchase idol tales without the knowledge and without meaning and they mislead the people away from the path of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and they ridicule the path of Allah (subhanaw taala). These are the people who will receive a humiliating punishment so based on this if you see the Tafsir many of the Tafasir says that this idol tales without knowledge, without meaning, is refers to unislamic songs and the musical instruments, if you read the Tafasir as far as the Prophet prohibiting there are various Sahih Hadees so if you read the hadith of Muhammad (pbuh) then they will be no doubt whether it's permitted or prohibited.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, it's mentioned in Sahih Bukhari (Vol 7, Hadith 5590) the Beloved Prophet said that from among my followers there will be some people who will make illicit sex that is adultery and fornication as well as wearing of silk, drinking, intoxicants and using musical instruments as legal. There will be among my people who will make some things which are illegal that is adultery, fornication wearing of silk having toxicants and the playing of using instruments as legal now this Hadith when it says that they will make certain things legal and we know that intoxicants are haram.

We know very well the adultery, fornication haram because it is mentioned along with these things which are forbidden musical instruments are mention along with them. It indicates that the Prophet has prohibited them but some people will make it legal and we know there are some scholars who today do permit that playing of musical instruments is allowed so this hadith is very clear-cut in saying that musical instruments are haraam but there are other Sahih Hadith which do permit some musical instruments especially the Duff that is the tambourine.
If you read the Hadith of Beloved Prophet (pbuh) of Sahih Bukhari (volume 5, Hadith 4001) where it is said that Muhammad (pnuh) after consumating his marriage, He came and said outside along with one of the Sahabas, when two small girls were playing the tambourine that is a Duff and they were praising the Sahabah his father how he died in Jihad and when they started praising the Prophet, they said don't praise me, you can say what you were saying earlier indicating that the Prophet did not forbid them from playing the tambourine, furthermore theere is Hadith Sahih Bukhari (Vol2, Hadith 987) where the Prophet while he was laying down.

This Hadith narrated by Hazrat Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) she says that two small girls were playing the tambourine and they were singing when Hazrat Abu bakar (may Allah be pleased with him) the father of Hazrat Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) he comes then he says to them to stop it, Muhammad (pbuh) was sleeping on a cot, he tells to Hazrat Abu bakar (may Allah be pleased with him) that let them do it, these are the days of eid, let them do it: furthermore there's a Hadith in Trimidhi where our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) He says that there was a person who approaches the Prophet and tells him that I had vowed to Allah (subhanaw taala) that if you come back victoriously I will sing and I will play the Duff, I will bang the tambourine, the Prophet said if have vowed then do it if you have not vowed then don't do it so these Hadith do indicate that musical instrument per se is Haram except for the Duff that is the tambourine the Prophet did permit it one time.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
