:salam:

I have read all the hadith saying music is a charm of adultery, filth of words, that kind of stuff. According to Al-Islam.com any music, islamic or unislamic is haram. But how are nasheeds like these supposed to encourage adultery and immorality.

If anything these encourage the opposite.

It's way deeper than music. Music connects itself to the parts of the brain that are linked with spirituality, you're copypasting musical notes/lyrics to the part that also contains Quran and knowledge. Even listening to poetry isn't recommended during spiritual high times. I've read a hadith where Imam Sadiq told one of his followers: ''Do not listen to poetry during the holy months'' He asked him ''Even if they praise you, the ahlulbayt?'' And Imam (as) said ''yes even that''.

Any sort of music or signing, which keeps human beings away from Allah, the Sublime, and away from moral merits and spirituality and drives them towards lechery, futility, carelessness, and sinful acts, strays human beings from the path of Allah, the Exalted, is considered as ḥaram.

Haram music is that which is suitable for entertainment gatherings.

Other than that, all other music is halal.

Singing and songs are haram, and there is no halal or haram songs.

Singing is defined as an amusing statement expressed in the tunes that are suitable for those who provide entertainment and amusement.

Anything other than that (such as poetry) is not considered singing, therefore is halal.

The above was all according to Sayyed Al-Sistani.

Check the rulings here:

Regarding Music, this 2 hour video literally sums EVERYTHING up, including movies and media, right down to the science and what it does to you, its also from an Islamic point of view so that a plus. (its got some of that illuminati stuff, still highly recommend watching it, if you cant watch it right now, try watching 10 minute intervals).

In Islam music is called Ghina, and in Shia Sha’riah is counted as one of the ‘great sins’. At first, it may seem unrealistic to ban every "pleasant sound"; but there is no need to be alarmed. The Sha’riah has defined ‘Ghina’ in a different way. In Islam, vocal music means: "Prolongation and vibration of sound with variation of the pitch to such an extent that people may say that ‘he/she is singing’."

It is evident from the above definition that the Sha’riah does not forbid ‘pleasant sounds’; but if someone recites any thing with prolongation of sound and variation of pitch so much so that a common man thinks that he/she is singing, then and only then it will be ‘Ghina’ and sin.

And it makes no difference whether the thing recited was the Qur’an, religious poem or love song.

So from my understanding anything that could be classed as a song is haram. This also goes agains rulings of Ayatollah's Sistani and Khamenei.

This is my belief but apparently al-islam.org disagrees.

A lot of shia scholars have said that not all music is harram. I can't understand how music which is used for the praise of ahlulbayt(as) and prophet muhammad(pbuh) etc is harram.

If you are talking about western music like Justin Bieber and Kanye West songs etc then without a doubt that is harram.
