  1. Salam alakum, Growing up I listened to various genres of music. In my community I was surrounded by individuals/ family/ friends who were very strict and did not listen to music at all under any circumstance (they would walk out at weddings with music playing) and others who would listen to music in every circumstance. I saw it as harmless, it generally lifted my spirits, entertained me and allowed me to relax. My favourite genre was "indie" music which had no/ minimal profanity and was rarely offensive. However, over the years I stop listening to music for the duration of Ramadan and found this quite easy. Since Ramadan 2018 I have not played any music at all. At that point I decided it was better for my soul not to rely on songs and musicians to sooth me and instead I will focus on dhikr and my faith instead. Since I decided to quit listening to music I have had moments of temptation but I haven't given up even when I had really low and depressing days. Please note I have not been diagnosed with depression or any mental health illnesses but I have seasonal bouts of depression, anxiety and low moods which can be very difficult i.e. I question my life and find it hard to get through the day and continue with life. Today, I am having a low day and am really tempted to play something uplifting. Please share your thoughts and experience about using music to calm the mind and entertain etc. Feel free to share hadiths etc about the above-mentioned topics but please note that my madhab permits playing music with no profane content but I am just taking a precautionary stance: http://english.bayynat.org.lb/Editorials/Shariah_Music.htm

    confused about my job

    salam, i have been contemplating on leaving my job for a while now, the reason being is that there is haram music (rap, love, etc) playing 24/7 in there and the people i work with all use bad cuss words a lot although its mostly in joking with each other and towards me as well and even though telling them that i dont like to be talked to that way, lead to no avail. Also i sometimes feel like im not as bothered by the music anymore because of how much ive heard it there and probably becoming desensitized to it as well, as you know here in the US you'd be lucky to go a day without music entering your ears because of how common it is and what hurts even more is that everything i just stated with me is happening by arab non practicing shia muslims, i also feel like my heart is getting dirtier and its as if i just want to get away from all this to a place where there is no one. I want to know what you guys think i should do and considering the fact that i have younger siblings dependent on me to provide and my parents not living with us currently they are overseas and we are here as students. i have already asked my marja sayed sistani on working in a place where there is music playing 24/7 and i believe he said that as long as its not intentional its fine> also the reason im still contemplating on it is because im not sure if this is a test that Allah wants me to stay and go through or i should quit this job for the sake of Allah and rely on him to provide me with something better,,, im just confused now..... please give me your advice and guidance

    Music Played in House

    Salam, I have a question In Wasail al-Shia we find - "Amir ul-Mu’minīn Imam ‘Ali (a.s.) says, “Angels do not even enter a house that has wine, drum, tambourine or a flute. Even the prayers of the inhabitants of this house are unacceptable. They are deprived of barakat.” I don't listen to music at all and I know it's haram, but my family members play it and I ask them to stop but they don't. Does this mean my prayers are not accepted? I know of the Quranic verse which says that no soul shall be punished for another's actions... but the hadith is very clear..
  5. Why is my link to YouTube and website are dead?? can anyone help??
  6. So as many of you are aware, it is unheard of today to have a wedding without music and dancing even with relatively conservative muslim families, so how does the groom play around this when both his 'conservative' family and his fiancee's 'liberal' family strongly want a wedding (segregated) with music & dance? Is there any form of permissibility?
  7. Please some one make me clear. Even listening to such songs is haram too?
  8. I recently started watching Rurouni Kenshin and have been thinking to myself if what I am watching is haram because their are some haram elements such as the music in the background and mild sexual references and so on. I pray five times a day and read Quran and Dua, but I'm not sure if I could better spend my time doing something more productive. I also wanted to ask is what I'm doing a waste of time? The Quran speaks of all the good we should do while we are on this earth is watching something like anime beneficial, negative or neutral. Islamically after you finish your obligations (prayers) listen to some Quran and Dua should you further strive to learn more about Islam or is their leeway to watch tv, anime etc.

    Gym and music

    I go to the gym because I am trying to better my mental and physical health but I noticed I can not work out without listening to music. When I'm done working out, instead of feeling rejoiced I feel guilty. What is recommended? I am not fluent in Arabic so I really don't understand nashids. Is it better if I just listen to beats with no lyrics?

    Instruments in house?

    Salam, I know Music and instruments are haram or some opinions differ where some say it depends on the type of music. I grew up where in school you had to learn music and than choose from playing instruments by itself or singing music when we got older in school. I read a hadith from Wasa'il ul-Shia recently that is making me nervous and putting me in a predicament. Amir ul-Mu’minīn ‘Ali (a.s.) says, “Angels do not even enter a house that has wine, drum, tambourine or a flute. Even the prayers of the inhabitants of this house are unacceptable. They are deprived of barakat.”7 I don't listen to or play Music anymore and only publicly played Music while being in middle school until I graduated highschool when it was required, so it's been years. Obviously I wasn't raised knowing this about instruments and never played publicly for myself but did play Music for myself (not singing) for many years as a hobby. I do have drums, 2 pianos, and 4 guitars in my house. What do I do? You're not supposed to sell them either I think Ayatollah Shirazi says.. As long as they are put away and not being used am I ok? I usually don't ask questions here, but I think I need more dialouge with fellow Shia since I have many other questions that are not clear cut...Shukran

    Musical Instruments

    Salaam, A few of us were discussing music on chat and I happened to mentioned that "all stringed instruments are haram". A couple of brothers wanted to know the source. I found this Greater Sin: Music which mentions guitar. I cant find the source that expanded on this further and mentioned that instruments like duff and wind-based ones are permissible but stringed instruments are not. Can anyone provide reference or correct me? @Ron_Burgundy @Gaius I. Caesar @Heavenly_Silk tagging the few who were discussing this for their input.

    Study Music

    Salam, I know that most, if not all, music is haram but it has always been helpful to me while im revising. I know i cant listen to Quran while im studying and I think it's a bit inappropriate to listen to a latmiya. What do you guys think is an appropriate Islamic replacement for music? Is listening to dua okay or is it a similar situation as that of the Quran? If silence is the only option then that's okay. Thanks for the help.

    Wedding - Music/Dancing

    Asalamu Alaikum. I will be getting married in a few months and I had a few questions regarding weddings. The wedding will be segregated and in a hall. 1. Is dancing completely haraam? are men not allowed to dance just among the men? Does this depend on the type of music? I would like to play some background music if dancing is completely forbidden. 2. I find the type of music that is halal or haram very confusing in the fatwas. Things like " As for the music, it would be allowed, if it is not suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings". What does that mean exactly? So is instrumental music haraam? What about songs that have a good meaning?, e.g. sami yusuf, maher zain or similiar iranian, afghan songs. The main help I need is a clear interpretation of some of the fatwas, I've always found them a bit confusing when deciding what is exactly halal or haram music. Please note I am only interested in what would be deemed acceptable by the scholars, so let's stick to this point :). I do taqlid of Khamenei but it would be useful to know the opinion of other marja too, not all my family members do taqlid of him.
  18. I don't know whether this was posted here before or not, so if repetitive, forgive me for sharing it . This was made in memory of those who died by the missile of US navy force to the none military Iranian airplane, which was intentionally because the commander of the battle ship which did it was awarded with medal of honor(dishonor)
  19. Assalam o alikum everyone, As you all know that sufi music is very popular everywhere specially in Pakistan and India. Some people say it is alright to listen a Naat with music or "qawali"......but I am confused, if music is not permissible then why a naat with music....?? Some scholars say listening to music is Haram then why they encourage listening to sufi poetry with music ? Actually my friends likes sufi music, but I don't listen that type of things I am not sure about if they are right or wrong......So my fiend and I had a bit of an argument. She says that Prophet Dawood pbuh had a very beautiful voice and He used to sing...I said that Prophet didn't used any musical instrument.. She is like... music is a food for our soul, it helps us to ease our worries and when it comes to sufi music listening...its very good for us. That argument looks ridiculous but I just want to clarify for my satisfaction, that should I avoid sufi music too ? by the way I always avoid listening to music/songs. etc. God bless you All..
  20. Salam, I will try to address an important issue happening in the world today, Music being played in public areas. In Islam, listening to Music is NOT permissible. Many Muslims face a difficulty avoiding such an encounter. As i was battling through the urges to not listen in public areas, i have stumbled upon two TACTICS that have helped me in my everyday life. 1.Concentrate on other actions. By concentrating on other things, you can defeat the urge to listen to the played music. One thing that has worked for me is to simply put my ear phones and play a religious recording, for people that don't have an ear phone, simply place your phone speaker on your ear, lower the volume to 1, and concentrate on that. Another thing is to concentrate on forms of Worship like Tahleel (There is no god but Allah)[La illah illa Allah] and Tasbeeh (Glory to Allah, Praise Allah and there is no god but Allah, Allah is great)[Subhan Allah, Al hamdulilah wa la ilah illa Allah, Allah akbar]. Or you can just focus on anything really, as long as you dont focus on the music. 2.Ask the owner to off it. This is the other unpopular action. If the music is really annoying you, just ask the owner or the driver to off it, who knows, he might off it. Notes 1. For people who don't have a strong concentration and end up concentrating on the music, try to not focus to hard on concentrating on something else. What i mean is, if you tried too hard you will start thinking "i need to concentrate on something other the music", chances are you will keep thinking of the music, because you are already thinking on not focusing on it. For example if i said Don't think of a pink elephant, first thing comes to mind is a pink elephant. Now if i said Don't think of your mobile phone, you forget completely about the pink elephant. So you just need to discard the music just like you did with the pink elephant. 2. You can develop your concentration by training it. everyday play some voice in the background and start trying to focus on something. This will help you also while praying. 3. Only use the second Tactic if you are sure the owner will respond correctly. He may ask you to leave. With regards, A slave

    Music allowing marjas?

    Salam, Can we make a list of marjas who deem music as permissible, at least for a limited extent? And maybe their rulings about music? Thanks...

    Playing Guitar Alone

    I wanted to ask if i can play the guitar if i am alone, since it is said music is haram for amusement gatherings, so would it be okay if i play it alone, to myself and use it as an art in college applications (as extracurricular since it would help me, i am bad at grades, might get a chance because of this asset) and stuff. Also it would not have any singing alongside, it would be just the guitar. My intention is to only be able to play, not to show off or perform anywhere.. also, i wont be effected religiously, i will continue my prayers as i would have without it. and also that i play music very similar to the persian or arabic folk music which is mostly found in traditional and cultural and even somewhat religious (sufi) songs that come out of iran, but only that there would be no singing, so it can be said it can be used for normal singing or sufi or persian singing if you think about it, but i will not sing along to is (since i cant and dont intend to) because my motive is to only be able to play the guitar as an artform. thank you
