Good idea but we shouldn’t use music for it. Music is shaitans playground unfortunately 

It depends on the marja.

Your completely wrong, there are classic learned jurists that believe music is halal and it just depends on the lyrics. There are also modern scholars that agree with this. Unfortunately people are being told something that’s not definite and make it sound as if it’s definite.

Latmiyat and nohas are so musical, it's confusing. 

Not all. Since Azadar are found across many nationalities, religion,race, socities, culture, age group,  lifestyle and professions, different levels of faith and understanding,  there are things that come in. A professional poet, professional song writer or professional singer may want to compose a latmiyat, you can not stop them.

Poetry is a type of literature, or artistic writing, that attempts to stir a reader's imagination or emotions. The poet does this by carefully choosing and arranging language for its meaning, sound, and rhythm. https://kids.britannica.com/kids/article/poetry/353645

The problematic root is that any language is undulated and rhythmic. So at what point does vocalizations cross over into a haram poetic or musical style?

I have this question too. Muslim artists make covers of haram music but call them halal because they’re vocals only. However, they’re using the same tune so according to Ayatullāh Sistani, it wouldn’t be allowed? 

But I guess we’re derailing now from the original post

Secularly true, yet l remember these ayats together:  Ayats 26:222-224 with the end result being like Ayat 15:72 -ya mahuna

Question: Many questions are asked concerning permissible and forbidden music.
Is it correct to say that the music that arouses sexual, lustful urges and promotes unstable and degrading behaviour is the forbidden one?
And is it correct to say that the music that soothes the nerves or causes relaxation, the music that forms the background of a scene in a movie to increase the effect of the scene on the viewers, the music that is used for physical exercise during workouts, the music that dramatizes a particular scene by its tune, or the one that arouses the zeal [in soldiers] is the permissible one?

Answer: Forbidden music is the music that is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings, even if it does not arouse sexual temptations.
Permissible music is the music that is not suitable for such gatherings, even if it does not soothe the nerves like the martial music and that played at funerals
 
 
This music is part of a Christian band that people stand and dance to. I have seen this type of behaviour myself. Sister please tell the admins to remove your music video :)

Question: Just as many questions are asked about halãl and harãm music, many questions are asked about halãl and harãm songs. Is it correct to say that harãm songs are those that arouse sexual, lustful urges and promote unstable and degrading behaviour? Is it correct to say that songs that do not arouse lustful desires, but elevate the souls and thoughts to lofty levels like religious songs of praise dedicated to the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) and the Imams (a.s.), or the songs that lift the spirits and morale [of the fighters] and the like are halãl songs?

Answer: All songs (al-ghinã’) are harãm. Based on the definition that we accept, al-ghinã’ is the entertaining expression by way of tunes that are common to those who provide entertainment and amusement. In this prohibition, we should include the recitation of the Holy Qur’ãn, supplications (du‘ãs), and songs of praise of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) uttered to the accompaniment of those tunes [that are used by the entertainers]. The prohibition of reciting other non-entertaining expressions —like songs intended to lift the morale [of fighters]— is based on compulsory precaution. However, the tune that cannot be described as such is not harãm by itself.

This christian song that is posted has "entertaining expression by the way of tunes that are common to those who provide entertainment and amusement".

So, I think it should not be listened to and it is better if we removed it.

This topic is not about music, nor is this type of music played in entertainment gatherings like clubs, bars, etc. 

This is worship music. 

If this goes against your marja, then don’t listen to it. For my marja, it’s considered halal.

This is not a music topic, it's about the statements shared below. Please stay on topic. 

Personally, I think these are important points, and we need more positivity and mercy in our words and actions. 

Thanks @Islandsandmirrors for your post and @ali_fatheroforphans for your response.

In our Ummah, we don’t give much hope to others for their shortcomings. All we do is judge and condemn them to Hell and how Allah will punish you for doing this and for doing that.

Enough of all the negativity. It’s time for some positivity and hope. You are enough. No matter your sins, no matter your shortcomings—nothing is too big for Allah’s mercy. We need to focus on Allah’s mercy more in this Ummah.
