Islam: Is music haram or just dislikedWatch
Most do listen to music, in which case avoid sexualised lyrics and drugs
Many would see music as an expression of beauty and a fundamental part of human expression
The koran does not ban music nor say that hearing music offends God or makes him jealous.
During his lifetime, Islam's prophet did not ban music.
Some hadiths mention him disagreeing with companions that complained about loud music being played on days of celebration.
It's not just Islam, many religious fanatics of all different religions dislike music and use all sort of reasons to try to portray music as evil or a rival to God.
Creation of the devil, will make God feel jealous, distraction to humans from being holy.
Some sing songs of praise to God, use musical chanting as a form of worship or sing the call to prayer.
The early Protestant reformers and puritans like Oliver Cromwell despised music- banning it from all religious services.
They also banned some types of cakes, cancelled Christmas and preached angrily about eating too much food.
However, it's argued that anything besides praying and reading the Qur'an takes your mind off God so you may as well make any form of recreation haraam too. Also, playing musical instrumentals is considered to be haraam too (except for the duf)
“Do not they testify that there is no god except Allah and that Muhammed is His Messenger?” He said, “Yes. And also they fast pray and perform Hajj.” They said, “Then, what is their problem?” He said, “They use musical instruments, drums and female singers.”
