    Is music haram? Or is it only haram if it distracts you from your deen e.g. performing 5 prayers etc. I listen to music but I still do all that Allah has commanded us to do.

    I met the most wonderful Rabbinical scholar yesterday, he had an outstanding understanding of the Qu'ran. It was really something amazing, iA I may be learning Hebrew with him.
    Awesome stuff. If you do, do let us know how it goes with reading the scriptures in Hebrew - it's something that's always tickled my curiosity (not enough, however, to want to learn it seriously - I don't have the time to do so, anyhow).

    Largely Haraam according to the vast majority of scholars. There were some differing opinions, but those had their reasonings which should not be overlooked. It's best to avoid as much as possible out of precaution. Unfortunately, that's pretty hard these days - even so with anaasheed.

    'Islam permits singing under the condition that it is not in any way obscene or harmful to Islamic morals. There is no harm in its being accompanied by music, which is not exciting.'

    So basically, singing/music is allowed under the condition that it does not detriment your deen/Islam in anyway whatsoever?

    Sahih International
    Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do.


    24:31to top

    Sahih International
    And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, their brothers' sons, their sisters' sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.

    Narrated Aisha (the Prophet's wife): Asma, daughter of Abu Bakr, entered upon the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) wearing thin clothes. The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) turned his attention from her. He said: 'O Asma, when a woman reaches the age of menstruation, it does not suit her that she displays her parts of body except this and this, and he pointed to his face and hands.

    There is a beautiful story about patience in the Holy Quran of Prophet Yusuf A.S.

    His brothers threw him into the well, but he was patient and so Allah (swt) raised him out of that well. He ended up in the house of one of the most powerful people of Egypt, but then Allah (swt) tested him again.

    The wife of Al Aziz, the finance minister, tried to tempt him, but he was patient. Then Allah (swt) tested him again and threw him into prison. But he was patient for the sake of Allah (swt). And in the end Allah (swt) raised him to a lofty station and he became one of the most powerful people in Egypt. This is the reward of patience.

    May Allah (swt) provide each one of us with this beautiful quality— patience.

    The types of actions that will be like scattered dust on Yawmul Qiyamah:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    The First: One having deeds from which he hopes good but they end up scattered dust and are altered to evil deeds. Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى says,

    وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَعْمَالُهُمْ كَسَرَابٍ بِقِيعَةٍ يَحْسَبُهُ الظَّمْآنُ مَاء حَتَّى إِذَا جَاءهُ لَمْ يَجِدْهُ شَيْئًا وَوَجَدَ اللَّهَ عِندَهُ فَوَفَّاهُ حِسَابَهُ وَاللَّهُ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ

    “As for those who disbelieve, their deeds are as a mirage in a desert. The thirsty one thinks it to be water till he comes to it and finds it naught, and finds, in the place thereof, Allaah Who will pay him his due; and Allaah is swift at reckoning.

    (An-Nur 24:39)

    وَقَدِمْنَا إِلَى مَا عَمِلُوا مِنْ عَمَلٍ فَجَعَلْنَاهُ هَبَاء مَّنثُورً

    “And We shall turn unto the work they did and make it scattered motes.

    Fudayl said concerning this verse,”And there will appear unto them from their Lord, that wherewith they never reckoned,” ‘]They worked deeds thinking them to be good when in reality they were evil.’

    The Second: Close to the above: a servant commits an evil deed to which he pays no regard, thinking it insignificant, and that sin will be the cause of his perdition as Allaah says,

    “…you counted it a trifle but in the sight of Allaah it is very great.”


    One of the Companions said, ‘You are doing deeds that are, in your eyes, more insignificant than a hair, whereas at the time of the Messenger of Allaah صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم we would consider them to be destructive sins!.’

    The Third: Worse than the previous case: one to whom the evil of his conduct seems pleasing. Allaah, Exalted is He says,

    “Say: Shall We inform you who will be the greatest losers by their works? Those whose efforts go astray in the life of the world, and yet they reckon that they do good work.


    Ibn Uyaynah said, ‘When death came to Muhammad ibn Al-Munkadir he became apprehensive and so the people summoned Abu Hazim and he came. Ibn al-Munkadir said to him,” Allaah says, ‘And there will appear unto them, from their Lord, that wherewith they never reckoned,’ and I fear that things will become clear to me and confront me that Inever expected. ’Then both of them broke down in tears.’ Recorded by ibn Abi Hatim and ibn Abi Al-Dunya adds in his report, ’So his family said, ”We called you that you may console him but you have only increased his apprehension!” He then told them of what he had said.

    Fudayl ibn Iyad said, I have been informed that it was said to Sulayman al-Taymi, ”You! Who is there like you!” He said, ”Quiet! Do not say this! I do not know what will appear before me from Allaah, I have heard Allaah saying,” And there will appear unto them, from their Lord, that wherewith they never reckoned.”

    The Fourth: Sufyan ath-Thawri would say upon hearing this verse, ’Woe to the people of ostentation.’This can be seen in the Hadith about the three who would be the first to be hurled into the Fire: the scholar, the one who gave charity, and the Mujahid.

    The Fifth: The one who has worked righteous deeds but has also wronged others and he thinks that his deeds will save him, so there confronts him that which he was not expecting. All of his deeds are apportioned amongst those who he wronged then some wrong still remains to be requited, and so their evil deeds are piled onto his and as a result he is hurled into the Fire.

    The Sixth: His account could be scrutinized at which it will be asked of him to show how he was grateful for the blessings granted him. The least blessing would be balanced against his deeds and outweigh them with the remaining blessings yet to be weighed! This is why the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said, ”Whoever’s account is scrutinized will be punished, or will be destroyed.”

    The Seventh: He could have evil deeds that destroy some of his deeds or the deeds of his limbs, save Tawhid, as a result of which he will enter the Fire. Ibn Majah records the hadith on the authority of Thawban that the Messenger of Allaah صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said, ’There are people amongst my nation who will come with deeds like mountains and Allaah will render them as scattered dust.’ This hadith goes on to mention, ”They are people who have your skin, (they speak your language), they spend part of the night in prayer as you do, but they are people who, when they are alone, violate the prohibitions of Allaah.”

    Yaqub ibn Shaybah and ibn Abi al-Dunya record on the authority of Salim, the freed-slave of Abu Hudhayfah, that the Messenger of Allaah صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said, “A group of people will be brought on the Day of Judgment with deeds like Mount Tihamah and Allaah will render their deeds to dust and they will be thrown face first in the Fire.” Salim said, ”I fear that I am one of them! He صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said, ”They would fast, pray, and apportion some of the night for worship, but in secret, when an opportunity to do something forbidden presented itself, they would take it and as such Allaah will invalidate their deeds.” A person could have his deeds annulled because of showing off or arrogance and the likes yet not even be aware of it!

    Beautified is the life of this world for those who disbelieve, and they mock at those who believe. But those who obey Allah's Orders and keep away from what He has forbidden, will be above them on the Day of Resurrection. And Allah gives (of His Bounty, Blessings, Favours, Honours, etc. on the Day of Resurrection) to whom He wills without limit.

    [Surah al-Baqarah]


    وَلَقَدِ اسْتُهْزِئَ بِرُسُلٍ مِّن قَبْلِكَ فَحَاقَ بِالَّذِينَ سَخِرُوا مِنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ
    And already were messengers ridiculed before you, but those who mocked them were enveloped by that which they used to ridicule.

    [Surah al-An'aam]
