Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Salam

I was just wondering if music is haram then I mean for example Persian violin for example this:

when I play the violin I feel like Allah has blessed me with being able to play an instrument and I always remember to thank Allah. And also it makes me calmer cuz sometimes I get hyped up and since I began playing Persian violin when I pray I feel more focused. And my math has gone from C to A I'm doing a lot better in school it's a lot easier with homework and I'm getting better grades and I also take viser decisions according to my friends and I Belive that it brings me and my friends closer to Allah through being calm and thinking before doing something haram. 

 

thank u for your answers brothers and sisters

Music, singing & dancing » General Rules

Music is an art that has spread far and wide during these days. Some varieties of this art are permissible while others are forbidden; therefore, it is permissible to listen to the first while it is forbidden to listen to the latter.
Music that is permissible is the music that does not entail entertainment in gatherings held for that purpose. Forbidden music is the music that is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings.
The expression “the music or the song that is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings” does not mean that the music or the song’s tune amuses the heart or changes the mental state because there is nothing wrong in it. The expression actually means that the person listening to the music or the song’s tune —especially if he is an expert in these matters— can distinguish that this tune is used in the entertainment and amusement gatherings or that it is similar to the tunes used therein. (See the question-answer section below.)
It is permissible to visit places where halãl music is being played, and it is permissible to listen to it as long as it is halãl.
It is permissible to visit public places where music is being played, even if it is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings, provided that one does not intentionally listen to it: for example, passengers on course, waiting areas for visitors, public parks, restaurants and cafes, etc —even if the music played there is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings— because there is no problem in hearing forbidden tunes without intending to listen to it.
It is permissible for adults as well as children to learn the art of halãl music in music schools or other places as long as their visits to such places do not have any negative effect on their proper upbringing.
Singing (al-ghinã’) is harãm: doing it, listening to it, or living of it. By “singing — al-ghinã’,” I mean an amusing statement expressed in the tunes that are suitable for those who provide entertainment and amusement.
It is not permissible to recite the Holy Qur’ãn, supplications (du‘ãs), and words of praise in tunes that are commensurate to entertainment and amusement gatherings.
Based on obligatory precaution, one must refrain from reciting other non-amusing statements, in poetry or prose, in that tune. (See the question-answer section below.)
The prohibition of intentionally listening and giving ear to harãm songs and music has beenmentioned in the holy tradition. The Messenger of Allãh (s.a.w.) said, “And the person with the [sin of] singing (al-ghinã’) will be raised [on the day of resurrection] blind, deaf and dumb. The person with [the sin of] adultery, of wood-wind, and of drum will also be raised in the same way.” (1)
He also said, “Whoever listens to the entertainment (song and music), lead will be melted inside his ear on the day of judgement.” (2) He also said, “Singing and music are enchantment for adultery.” (3) That is, it is a stepping stone or a way that leads to adultery.It is permissible for a woman to dance in front of her husband to please and arouse him. But it is not permissible for her to dance in front of other men; based on obligatory precaution, she must not dance in front of other women also. (See the question-answer section below.)
It is permissible to applaud in a marriage ceremony, religious gatherings, seminars, and other functions. This is equally permissible for women and men.

by entertainment it means concerts. music in itself is not haram. playing music and creating music is not haram. What the piece of music is used for defines whether it is haram or not. Music is used in nasheeds and art such as sound tracks to movies/series...even religious ones.

Music is one of the biggest haraam ever. Also all instruments except for the base drum is haraam. It is haraam to sing, to listen to music and to make music.

Why Does ayatollah khameini allow it?

Why Does ayatollah khameini allow it?

This is from Imam al-Khamenei:

Defnition of Ḥarām Music Signing
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 lahwī and ḥarām.

Criterion for Ḥarām Music
Any music categorized due to its nature as lahwī and straying human being from the path of Allah, the Exalted, is ḥarām, irrespective of whether or not it is exciting. Whether it engenders in the listener a state of melancholy and crying is also immaterial. Should the music not be of the type suitable for gatherings of sin and lahw, nor lead to bad consequences, there is no evidence for issuing it as ḥarām.

Ḥarām Music/Signing in Wedding Parties
As far as the ruling on the ḥarām music or signing (i.e. lahwī one, which strays human being from the path of Allah, the Exalted) is concerned, there is no difference between wedding party and other occasions.

To Play Tambourine
The rule on playing tambourine depends on how to use it. It is ḥarām to play it in a lahwī manner suitable for sinful merrymaking gatherings. As far as religious ceremonies/occasions are concerned, the sanctity and status of Ahlul-Bayt (a.s.) sould be observed.

To Use Musical Instruments
By itself, there is no objection to using musical instruments to play tunes for revolutionary chanting, religious programs or carrying out useful cultural educational activities.
Also, learning and teaching playing music as well as selling and buying musical instruments for the above mentioned causes are no problem.

Buying/Selling Multi-purpose Musical Instruments
There is no problem in buying and selling musical instruments that serve dual purposes, intending to use them in playing non-lahwī tunes.

Music as Treatment
Should a trustful medical specialist say that treating an illness depends solely on music, there is no problem in it provided that it is in keeping with the requirements of the treatment.

To Listen to a Woman's Voice/Ghinā’
There is no difference between a man's ghinā’ and that of a woman. It is not ḥarām to listen to a woman's voice which is not ghinā’ unless it is accompanied by ill intention or leads to a bad consequence. However, it is impermissible to listen to a woman's singing as usually involves a vile consequence.

To Listen to Ghinā’ of One's Spouse
It is absolutely ḥarām to listen to ḥarām ghinā’, even if it is done by one's spouse.

Women's Reciting Elegies
In the places where the woman knows that her voice is heard by non- maḥrams, then if it attracts non- maḥrams’ attention, arouses their sexual passion, or leads to another vile consequence, she is not allowed to recite elegies or the like.
 

To Dance
By obligatory caution, it is ḥarām for a man to dance. If a woman's dancing among women fits the definition of lahw, e.g. it becomes a dancing gathering, one should avoid it by obligatory caution. It is ḥarām to dance if it entails sexual excitement, leads to a vile consequence, is accompanied by a ḥarām act (e.g. ḥarām music / singing) or there exist a non-maḥram man. It makes no difference whether or not it is a wedding party.

To Attend a Dancing Party
It is ḥarām to attend a dancing party if it is considered as accepting the ḥarām act of others or entails committing a ḥarām act. Otherwise, there is no harm in it.   
Leaving the party as a kind of protest against the ḥarām act is obligatory if it is a case of forbidding evil.

A Wife's Dancing for Her Husband
Should the dancing of a wife for her husband be done without the commission of any ḥarām act, there is no harm in it.

Dance Teaching Centers
Establishing centers for teaching and promoting dancing goes against the objectives of the Islamic system and it is impermissible by obligatory caution.

To Attend Sinful Gatherings
If attending gatherings, where sins are committed, entails perpetrating a sinful act or supporting it, one should leave this gathering or not attend it. The same rule applies if forbidding evil is dependent on leaving the place or not going there at all.

I dont know. That is his ruling based on his knowledge but I follow Sistani and Sistani says the only permissible music to listen to is the music that is not suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings( background music in movies, videos, music played at funerals, music in a store,etc.). Also in hadith Jaf'ar Al- Sadiq  (as) quoted that music engenders hypocrisy and The Holy Prophet quotes that he will abolish strings and the flute. The Quran forbids us not to listen to divisionary words(singing). I highly recommend you dont listen to music for your own sake.

lol one of the rules many ulama use is if you ask too many questions than they will make everything haram on you. Its best to take it generally and know music is ok and dont ask anything else after that because if you do than it can be haram.

Music 

The Prophet Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå

رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله: إنَّ اللَّهَ بَعَثَنَي رَحمَةً للعالَمينَ، ولأِمحَقَ المَعازِفَ والمَزاميرَ واُمورَ الجاهِليّةِ 

 

The Prophet Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå said,

 ‘Verily Allah, Mighty and Exalted, sent me as a mercy to the worlds, and in order to eradicate string instruments, the flute and others pre-Islamic pagan practices.’

 

Bihar al-Anwar, v. 79, p. 250, no. 2

 

رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله : صَوتانِ مَلعونانِ فِي الدنيا والآخِرَةِ : مِزمارٌ عندَ نِعمَةٍ ، ورَنَّةٌ عندَ مُصيبَةٍ 

 

The Prophet Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå said, 

‘Two sounds are cursed in this world as well as in the Hereafter: the sound of the flute played [in celebration] for a bounty, and the twang [of string instruments played] during a calamity.’
