    a salamou 3alaikoum wa rahmatou allah t3ala wa barakatoho dear brothers and sisters to my knowledge the only musical instrument that's forbiden is the flut other than that making religious songs since when it is forbiden?
    i think he can relate the message and the word of allah ta3ala better when he has the attention of the whole world .I still respect him i will always do .and wa salamou 3alaikoum wa rahmatou allahi wa barakatuhu

    Cat Stevens was one of my dad's favourite singers when he was young and today Yusuf Islam is one of mine. He is the role model for British Muslims today - dont take that the wrong way please - of course Muhammad saw is the example we must follow - ohh I hope you get what I mean!

    brothers and sisters,
    why are you being sorry of yusuf's return to music? do you exactly know what he will be playing and are you in a position to judge people's struggles with shaytan?

    seems to me that we should rather be concerned with our mistakes and others' good behaviour.

    assalamu aleykum.

    Music and Quraan !

    SAlams to all,
    Yusuf did say towards an end of his interview something like it is easy to deliver a message with a song rather than giving a lecture!! The prophet PBUH never did that although there was music instruments!!

    Moreover, He was questioning the Islamic ruling about music being haram or halal saying that there is no clear verse in Quraan forbidding it!!. Well, This is what the Prophet PBUH has predicted early saying that something like there will be a time that people would do things that only mentioned in Quraan and abandon his sunnah. Brothers or sisters with good Hadeeth knowledge may be good at getting the source for this authentic hadeeth for us I hope. Anyway, This Muslim brother should have a fair decision about deen. That is, if you hear different opinions about one particular thing in religion, like music, covering up women faces and others, Just go and follow the Prophet PBUH advice to the companions when they asked him, one day, what to do when islam will divide into 73 subgroups, all will be in hellfire except one.

    He said something similar to this, one which practices the same way myselfe and my companions are practicing. I wish to have the exact source of this hadeeth , but bottom line is. Again please help me getting the exact hadeeth reference.

    Try to ask yourself on what did the prophet PBUH and his companions do when they read that verse in quraan or about that particular thing in religion. Music was not practiced and was considered Haram and women were covered up like a black bird. Check it out yourself. Do not depend on what A or B says only, ask them to show you a proof either From Allah or his Messenger.

    AoA Brothers and Sisters,
    Can anyone please quote the Hadeeth of Rasool-o-Allah (SAW) about the Music being impermissible.
    People making Music often quote that at the time of Prophet (SAW) entering Medina there was famour welcom nasheed(Tala-ul- badro Alina) being sung by the people of Medina and also "Darbakka" being played. Rasool-o-Allah (SAW) did not object that and smiled at this reception.

    Doenot this incident makes music allowed and also the use of musical instruments.

    Let suppose Darbaks is the only instrument allowed since Prophet(SAW) did not object on this at this specific incident.

    But may be "darbakka" was the only instrument invented at that time. If there had been other instruments they could be allowed too as long as the subject and lyrics are for Holy Cause.

    This is a question in my mind for long time, reading this discussion gave me opportunity to ask this.

    Expert opinion on this is needed please.

    :salam2:
    I am not a scholar and i have a deep respet for Yosif Islam May Allah guide us all to all that pleases him .
    There is hadiths conerning musical instruments

    “The Prophet, peace be upon him, said:

    “There will be (at some future time) people from my ummah (community of Muslims) who will seek to make lawful: fornication, the wearing of silk, wine-drinking and the use of musical instruments (ma'azif). Some people will stay at the side of the mountain and when their shepherd comes in the evening to ask them for his needs, they will say, 'Return to us tomorrow ‘Then Allah will destroy them during the night by causing the mountain to fall upon them, while He changes others into apes and swine. They will remain in such a state until the Day of Resurrection.” (hadeeth #494B in Vol. 6, Sahih Al-Bukhari)

    Ibn Hajar one of muslem scholars concludes by emphasizing (in reference to Al-Bukhari’s narration):

    “This is an authentic hadeeth. It has no deficiency or defect, and there is no point of weakness for any attack to be made on it.

    I think only people with enough knoweldge in hadith can judge such matters, not any one (like poor me:frown:).

    Music

    I want to tell you that music is not haram in Islam it depends on words of your music .Yusuf Islam sings Islamic songs .You have to study more about music in Islam.

    He is an awesome person....

    I like to listen to his music, it extols Allah and the virtues of being a Muslim. He has touched so many lives through music.

    Can some one show me, in the QURAN, where music is forbidden? Because if that it true, you cannot watch tv, play computer games, set an alarm clock, listen to a doorbell, open the car door, hear childrens toys etc. Music is all around you. The bad music, I can understand, but the beauty of music and talent Allah gave to people, is a gift.

    sister you are taking this conversation to another level which will spark heated conversation. I do not think that you read that hadith above. There is no explaination for everything in the quran, and I think you took this to emotional because You like to listen ti musik. And NO is not the same listening to 50 Cent and alarm clock, is not the same listening to bon Jovi and doorbell, do not get confused.
    Try to be better muslimah and trust me you will not need any music. May Allah guide us all. ameen!!

    The Quran is Perfect Is it Not??

    Doesn't the Quran send down all that is perfect and right with Islam, and tell us what is haram and what is not? I can't find anything in the Quran to state otherwise.

    and do not judge me as to if I am being a good muslimah or not, that is not your job.

    salams all,
    music has been discussed many times and every one will be judged by Allah ta'laa in the end , it is not for us to judge others and especily not to start offending each other, inshallah rather we should be united, inshallah

    How to download this video

    To download this video, I found a good program called: Naevius Youtube converter. Once you install it type the Cat Stevens URL from youtube

    I use this program to download lots of documentaries from YouTube.
