I've quit listening to music what's the best way to cope with not going back to listening to it full time again.

00:00:09--> 00:00:47

I've had the level Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about? Look, music is one of those controversial kind of things. There's definitely space for something that is halau within the music realm. We know from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that there were moments of levity, enjoyment and happiness that were found within his community of believers. And not a single Hadees from all the 234 that have been narrated, that kind of speak about music or instruments can be proven unanimously amongst the agreement of all of the scholars as being so here. In fact, what you find is that there's a lot of pushback that has come from scholarly

00:00:47--> 00:01:30

discussion about this. We do know that there is a section of music that is not entirely and definitely held on impermissible. That's the kind of music that is full of lewdness. It's got that instrumentation that's meant purposefully to bring a person to a sense of loss of judgment in their actions in their behavior, and lead them into that which is sinful in conduct thereafter. There's also something where we can immediately identify a sense of music that is halaal that is found. For example, in the hadith of Lima Mohammed with a prophet SAW Selim says that the difference between halal and haram on the day of niqab on a day of celebration, in particular for women is a laudable

00:01:30--> 00:02:12

bidoof to strike the drum. It's a way of letting people know that this is a joyous day and something great is happening to souls have reconnected in that which is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the middle is that gray area. And I think that it is what you're speaking about brother know that the words of a law in their entirety do not have it a space that is consumed by the sinful words of the shape on so music that is talking about drunkenness, you know, loose morals, promiscuity, things that are not a part and parcel of the moral fabric and ethos of us as Muslims. In fact, the universal values that we all appreciate, should be something that you immediately put a hole to, and

00:02:12--> 00:02:32

to build on this Alhamdulillah that you've kind of cut away from that, I invite you to three things First, find something that consumes your time that you normally use that that can be a replacement for it. So for example, you know, there's a lot of audio books today that have such important messages and powerful

00:02:34--> 00:03:13

helpful tips that could be of a great space it's something that I Alhamdulillah enjoy regularly So get yourself you know hooked on audiobooks. Second, you know, I'm not going to tell you that the whole on is just something that you listen to for enjoyment, but why not find that one to three parties who you enjoy listening to before you sleep waking up to in the morning, someone whose voice is out you know, becomes a tune in your heart and mind the prophets I seldom used to say hello and as Matt who mean Heidi, I love I relish to listen to it from other than myself, as isn't the hadith of Abdullah have numerous rude, or the Allahu anhu of the third. And finally, know that there's a

00:03:13--> 00:03:49

difference between listening to music and hearing music. In every part of our day, there will be moments where we will hear music in the shopping center or on TV in our car. You know, these are things that are beyond us. And you're going to hear things that are going to stick with you. It's meant to be a rhythm and a rhyme that kind of, you know attracts you. But there's a difference between that and listening to it. Listening actively where you are now a part of that process of something that you believe is sinful is something that you should do your best to avoid. So don't beat yourself too much overhearing music, it's about being active and listening to music, paying for

00:03:49--> 00:04:05

its download, having it on your phone, that your preset stations in your car are all attached to it. That's what it is that you want to work towards eliminating what we like to feel May Allah grant you a nice success. Well suddenly lahoma wa Sallim wa barik ala Sayidina whenever you
