as had one more Hamedan while so long

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

I saw

00:01:05 --> 00:01:05

Hi yah

00:01:11 --> 00:01:11

Hi yah

00:01:16 --> 00:01:16


00:01:24 --> 00:01:25


00:01:28 --> 00:01:28


00:01:31 --> 00:01:35

ah mic bottle last

00:01:38 --> 00:01:41


00:01:52 --> 00:02:01

hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah hill I mean while he was here Jemaine about

00:02:03 --> 00:02:21

today are hot WA is about music. And part of the reason behind that is that during the summer, more youth will attend the hilltop. And the other part is how much it is in our lives and how much of it of our time it consumes.

00:02:23 --> 00:03:13

And young and old music has diverted us from the Quran. Some studies indicate that the average teenagers listens to about 26 hours a week of music. And you wonder how many of our youth spend about 26 hours a week listening to the Quran? Or even half of that 13 hours a week? Do you imagine it would be 1% even 1% of our youth listen to 13 hours of Quran per week. And if you ask them simplest questions about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam or his family, or any of the companions, they will not know the answer. So it's diverted people even from learning about the religion. But on the same breath, they will tell you about the listeners that they listened to the

00:03:13 --> 00:03:24

musicians, the singers, whom they're married to whom they divorced from, what year they put out their first album, how many albums they have all the details they will have.

00:03:25 --> 00:04:11

And we know that Allah subhanaw taala is going to question us on the Day of Judgement Allah azza wa jal will ask us about our wealth. Every dollar you earn, he'll ask you where you got it from and what you spend it on. And your answer has to be a correct answer. In the same way in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says in a summer, well, bizarro world for the cooloola Iike can houmous Allah, Allah Subhana Allah says, Indeed, the hearing whatever you hear, and the sight and whatever you see, and the heart, you will be questioned by Allah about all of those. So that means we're going to be questioned about what we listen to. And then this hope, but we're not trying to give you all the

00:04:11 --> 00:04:59

evidence that music is haram. We're trying to let you see just from logical arguments that you're already aware of this answer. Allah subhanaw taala tells after the shaytaan disobeyed Allah Subhana Allah tells him his weapons that he can use against humanity. So he tells him where stuffs is Minnesota at a minimum be Solotica we're asleep. I lay him behind Nikka Rajic where shall we shall come Phil Anwar, they will alert worried home when I do human shaitana Illa Aurora so Allah subhanaw taala tells the shape on and be fooled them gradually those whom you can from amongst them from the human beings with your voice. So what would the voice of the shape on be? Yeah, and are we talking

00:04:59 --> 00:04:59

about the Whisper

00:05:00 --> 00:05:43

brings, or other what other item could be the voice of the shaytaan and make assaults on them with your cavalry and your infantry behind Lika logic. So someone might say they don't have riding animals, and therefore that was figurative. And the first one was figurative, it's not talking about music, but they do have writing animals as indicated in this verse and in the Hadith, the prophet Salam spoke about the writing animals. So Allah subhanaw taala is when IBLEES vowed to misguide humanity, Allah subhanaw taala is tell them telling him Whoever you can, if you can be full of them with your voice, and with and make assault, attack them with your infantry and with your cavalry. So

00:05:43 --> 00:05:45

the voice of the shaytaan here, what would it be?

00:05:47 --> 00:06:33

We said, deep down, we all know the answer to this and the scholar of the Ummah, and the manifester of the Quran, and the companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Abdullah Abdullah Abbas. And towards the end of his time, he's one of the few living and remaining scholars from amongst the companions. So a man comes to him to ask him if this singing that they had at their time, which didn't in queue include bad words and music videos with haram images, and didn't include profanity didn't include haram content or subject matters. He's asking him about the sin singing of their time. So he comes to him and he says, yep, now Abbas or Atia Lorena Hello loon Hua haram am haram.

00:06:33 --> 00:07:20

He says singing is it halal or haram? nobis can give him a yes or no answer. But he wants him to realize he he knows the answer. So he tells him or Adel hubco and bottle either yo Malkia Amma for a now Kunal Avena he tells him on the day of judgment when Allah brings the truth and he brings falsehood forward. What side do you think singing will be on? What side do you think music will be on? And he is music on the Day of Judgment when Allah brings truth and falsehood? Is music going to be with the Quran and no holiday Salaam and Ibrahim Ali salah? Or do you think will be on this other side with the bliss and the shayateen and lying and eat and falsehood and profanity? So the young

00:07:20 --> 00:08:04

man of course said the Hakuna mal mal Barton and the Rena the singing will be on the side of falsehood. So if nobis says to him from either battle help de la bala is the hub of data and F sec. He tells them what is if it's not the truth, what is it except falsehood? Go you have answered your question by your own self. We know that Halal things, they have good descriptions and good attributes. Look at prayer, fasting, reciting the Quran. Look at the kinds of people who gather to pray and fast or people who gather to recite the Quran, or people who gather because there is a lecture or an Islamic conference. So you have something good, it gathers and it brings the good

00:08:04 --> 00:08:42

people and what do they do good things righteous deeds. Look at music naturally, we're not going to have a haram just look at music when you people gather around music. You only when people gather around the Quran, the Imams and the her father and a student of knowledge and the righteous people of the city come out and they sit and they recite and they engage in obedience of Allah azza wa jal get loudspeakers get a stage and just play loud music who will gather Yanni the Mufti of the city is going to come the Imams and the Messiah and the Mahabharata are gonna come, or the worst of the city will come out. So the question we're saying, How could it be something halal?

00:08:43 --> 00:09:23

But when when it's when it's played? Only the worst gather the worst of people in the city gather and then what do they do? Yeah, and there's always in gatherings of loud music, there will be smoking, there will be alcohol, there will be intermingling there will be inappropriate dress and then at the end of the day, the night will end many times with Xena will Aya Billa. So that's the first indication there there's something wrong with it. It can't be something good and halal. But when people gather around it, only the worst of things happen. It can't be. The second thing is look at the feeling that you get from it. The feeling that music creates in you, is it something that

00:09:23 --> 00:09:53

brings you closer to Allah subhanaw taala Is it the same direction as Assura and Taqwa and Eman? If right now and the speakers of this room Music start to Blair and I start to sing or rap. Even the biggest music lover will find that distasteful and not acceptable. Because you understand when you came for Jumeirah that you want it to go in one direction the feelings you're supposed to get are one. And music pulls you in a completely different direction.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

And we understand that we don't need to evidence for that. If someone's dying. You don't play Happy music while they're dying.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:39

If someone is injured or there is an accident, first thing people do, they turn off the radio. So we understand the direction that it pulls us in. And sometimes people will try to ignore these understandings that they have. Or if someone is playing catchy music while you're praying, even if you're the musician, and someone is playing that, while you're praying, you don't appreciate that, and you'll probably yell at them at the end. Because you know, you're trying to get one feeling towards Allah subhanaw taala. And the music draws you and pulls you in another direction. And that's why the early Muslims used to say, and this is scholars from 800 years ago, they used to say, Lai

00:10:39 --> 00:11:15

urged me on if you're capable inside the love of music and the love of the Quran, or not combined in the heart of a believer, you either listen to one more than the other, but you don't listen to any who listens to them equally. You find people in their car, they either have music or they have Quran and even those who have both will listen to one more than the other. And even then, you know, if you're listening to Quran and you stop it and play music, stop it immediately play one verse from your favorite song, play a verse from the Quran, play a chorus from your favorite song, play a verse of the Quran, everyone will become uncomfortable because it's tugging at your heart in completely

00:11:15 --> 00:11:57

other different directions. The scholars mentioned also from the feelings that it causes, it causes the lack of higher lack of shame, shyness and modesty. People are not embarrassed when there's loud music playing to jump around and twirl and fall on the ground and get up again and spin. They're not ashamed. And women are not ashamed in front of when there's never been in history. A female dancer that felt ashamed because there were men in the room. Once they played the music, she loses her hire. The scholars also mentioned that it or it increases in arouses desires in people, the fitna of the voices of women. And now these women, they're singing songs with very disgusting and dirty words

00:11:57 --> 00:12:38

and lyrics. And they're shaking and gyrating and they're dressed inappropriately, and they're softening their voices on purpose. And there is no way a righteous believing man or woman would would think this is completely acceptable. There are Christian groups here in America that believe music is haram. And dusting is haram. And they say because it's suggestive, there is no way that this is something that is righteous do something that is acceptable. And yet you find Muslims trying to argue the opposite. Or that someone will try to argue that this doesn't affect the hearts of people. Allah subhanaw taala created human beings and He created man and he knows men better than

00:12:38 --> 00:13:21

they know themselves. And you find in Surah Noor Allah subhanaw taala is instructing the women. What are your grip na br Julie hinda Leo Allah mama your fee and I mean Xena T hin were to Allah Allah Jamia Anna, you may know Allah Allah come to flee Han ALLAH SubhanA. Allah is telling the woman who are covered from head to toe to not strike the ground hard with their feet. So they're anklets, their jewelry, which is covered under their clothing, jiggles and makes a sound. And the man is aware and knows that she's wearing jewelry, which he will never get to see. What's the big deal? And why would Allah dedicate a verse like this? To tell the woman don't stomp the ground with your feet

00:13:21 --> 00:13:57

so that the men know you're wearing jewelry? Why? So what if the man knows she's wearing jewelry, and sometimes people try to deny this, but Allah subhanaw taala created us He knows us better than we know ourselves. Because that will stir something in the man. The fact that she knows she's wearing this kind of jewelry will stir something in the mat. And it will store his imagination. And he will imagine the jewelry and what it's on and he'll imagine the woman and he will in his imagination, marry the woman had because and that's why Allah subhanaw taala tells us not to tell the woman not to do that, because he knows the effects, even if it's just a starting point. And it's

00:13:57 --> 00:14:42

not necessarily that it's going to lead to that endpoint. But it's a starting point. And Allah subhanaw taala forbade that. We know that music moves people in various ways. And sometimes people say it's just entertainment, it doesn't move me I listen to it, I'm going to train an AI and I turn it off, or it doesn't affect my behavior. And that is absolutely not true. And we know that music affects people. And people use it to get that desired effect, one of from the early generations al farabi. And he was a musician, and he had an instrument, and he would pray it play this instrument in a way and his audience would cry and he played in a sad tone, the audience would cry, then he

00:14:42 --> 00:14:59

would play it in a way and then the audience would laugh, then he would play it in a way then the audience would fall asleep and then he would slip away. So it moves and those who study film or any other industry, they are the directors. There were two camps in the beginning. Those who

00:15:00 --> 00:15:44

who felt you should manipulate the audience using the score or music and those who believe you should not do that. But the point is that you know that a scene would not be the same without music. So it's hard to deny that it affects and moves people. Or you go into any high school in America. And you can tell who listens to what type of music just from the way they dress. So it got to the point that it dictated their wardrobe. And then you're trying to say that it does not affect people whatsoever. So then we have the messages. What are the messages in songs, how many songs are there, where the singer is warning you of alcohol or drugs, or they're calling you to hijab or

00:15:44 --> 00:16:14

righteousness or Taqwa or to stop intermingling? Most of the songs. They're singing, and it depends on what genre, but they're singing about love. And I wish it were a man singing to his wife, but most of them are singing to a love in a relationship that is not lawful. And they're singing to a calling to Zina, or they're calling to drugs, or talking about violence and shooting people or talking about the devil and drugs again, we know what's going on. We know the lyrics we know what it's about.

00:16:16 --> 00:17:02

Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Noor in Alladhina, buena, and she Alpha Heisha. To fillerina Amano, la Hamada arraignment for dunya will occur. Those who love to see scandal and illicit type of behaviors spread amongst the believers, they will have a severe punishment in this life and the next. So the scholars set one group of amorphous city and said that this idea is threatening those who love to spread scandal and illicit behavior in the community. Those who increase that and encourage that and spread that, that AI is threatening them. The other group of movers sitting said it's not even addressing that type of person. It's not addressing those who are actively engaged in

00:17:02 --> 00:17:18

engaged in pushing this out to the community. They're saying this is threatening a Lavina you a bona and Tasha Alpha. Those who just love for it to spread here and is someone in the community that you don't like is accused of Zina.

00:17:19 --> 00:17:43

And people are saying it left and right and they're talking about it and spreading it. You don't take part in it. You don't spread it. You don't ever open your mouth about it. But because you hated that person, you just happy that they're destroying him. You just love that this is happening. And that group of scholars said this is the type of person the verse is talking about, not even those who are active in it, just the one who loves for it to spread.

00:17:46 --> 00:18:34

For that reason, if numerous erode the companion Radi Allahu anhu, he used to say Alina Rukia, to Xena that singing and music. This is the facilitator of Xena and you cannot deny the relationship between the two. And for from the effects on women. There is what is known in English as swooning. It's like what teenagers teenage girls do when they see the boy bands and the way they're affected by that. This is is even that what he said? Yeah, Benny Omega er Comala Raina. He's tough talking to Benny omega the tribe and he's telling them stay away from a Latina from singing from music for Inaho youth he will hire because indeed, it takes away your higher you're not shy. It lowers your

00:18:34 --> 00:18:35

inhibitions is what he's saying.

00:18:37 --> 00:19:26

Why is easy to Shehata and increases it increases your desire well yeah demon Morrow data and it takes away your manliness. Yeah, and even a man standing shaking his hips twirling dancing in front of other men. We're we're in a whole la yo Nobu Anil Hummer, he says, and it substitutes for alcohol. Whatever I do, I have alcohol soccer. And it does It intoxicates basically saying it does what alcohol does. It intoxicates for including tubular Buddha alien, and if you're going to do it, and there's no way around it, Virginie boo hoo Nyssa. At least keep it away from women for inner Latina Daria to Xena because singing music is the invitation to Zina, Soloman Abdul Malik and he was

00:19:26 --> 00:19:59

the Khalifa. He heard some people who were singing and playing music. So he was upset and he gathered the singers and he said to them, and look at how he understood this. He said in alpha rasa layers hull Featherstone, Hula, hula ramaco. He says when the male horse makes that sound, the the female then prepares to meet with says we're in alpha layer. They're talking about a Hanukkah and when the male camel makes his sound, the female the she camel gets ready for him.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:19

We're in a Tesla nib photos for the story moolah holons. That the for the goats the same thing. And then he says we're in no Raju, they at Aruna factor star cola humara. He says, in the human world, the man sings, and then the woman desires him.

00:20:20 --> 00:20:42

And these points, you can't dispute these points. You can't dispute this happening right in front of our eyes, not necessarily amongst our children, but most likely also, but we know the place and the weight. The singers, male and female carry the way their fans look at them to the point that they start to stalk them, or they commit suicide if they die, and so on and so forth.

00:20:44 --> 00:21:26

This is a man by the name of Muhammad Abdul Mithuna. And he was his relating that ultimately, was a famous Arab poet, and Hoba. If he attacked you in his lines of poetry, he would destroy you. And he was known for attacking and he just he would not he was known for attacking people to the point that one day he heard your Omaha and he attacked his own mother. And one day he wanted to attack someone, he found no one he saw his reflection in the mirror, he wrote a poem against himself. So they were worried about him. Yeah. And he's like a dangerous person, for he came to an area who is traveling with his daughters, and he settled near the tribe of Bionicle. So they feared that if he disliked

00:21:26 --> 00:21:51

something from them, he would insult them in the poetry and it will be a need for all history, this intel towards them. So they came to him and they said, out of respect, they said, tell us what you like. And we'll do it and tell us what you don't like so we can stay away from it. So he said, Don't come to me too much. I need Fatima Luna Nia Annie that you will get tired of my company.

00:21:52 --> 00:22:11

What out to smear Rooney Avani shall be about to come for in Arena rope here to Xena, he says and don't let me hear the songs because he's traveling with his daughters. He said Don't let me hear the songs and the music of your young men. Because Because singing or music is the invitation to Xena.

00:22:12 --> 00:22:55

And we could well we couldn't we couldn't in any hot button in the world. Go over examples of lyrics from contemporary music today. We couldn't and it is just unbelievably filthy. And it's really hard to understand how someone who believes in Allah in Allah and His messenger in the last day could actually argue that this is okay that this is halal with the type of lyrics that are in songs today. And some of the older people in the audience think I'm talking about the 1950 songs that you grew up listening to. You either need to get an idea of what your children are listening to. So you can understand the level of insane filth that is in these lyrics and in the songs of today.

00:22:56 --> 00:23:38

I'm gonna open up the Aziz wrote to the more Adib you would in the old days get someone and they will teach your children manners and etiquette and religion known as demean. So he said to his the tutors basically he says to the Adib for so when you're you teach my children let the first lesson for them be the hatred of musical instruments that begin with the shaytaan an end with the Wrath of Allah azza wa jal so he's telling the tutor to his children first lesson make them hate musical instruments because it starts with the shaytaan and it ends with the Wrath of Allah for it reached me. This is a lot of Nabila Aziz, the fifth of the right leg of Hola. He said it reached me from the

00:23:38 --> 00:24:23

people of knowledge that listening to music and songs grows hypocrisy in the heart, as water makes plants grow. And we know how it replaces the Quran. I'm Rob Abdulaziz said to his son, a sons who had zero come elvina Who had zero come elvina has zero common Vina, I warn you of music I warn you of listening to music or singing. He says her Mr. Madhu Abdul Illa and saw hula hula Quran says anyone who listens to that Allah causes him to forget the Quran. Yeah, and it replaces the Quran and then you start to forget the Quran. One of the scholars as someone who said which one does Allah love more the Quran or music? So the person obviously said the Quran, he said something that so then

00:24:23 --> 00:24:27

why don't you love that which Allah subhanaw taala loves more

00:24:32 --> 00:24:46

so, and of course, there are others who say it calms you down and it relaxes your nerves, and there are studies coming out to show opposite to that. But it's enough even if it did relax you is enough that Allah Subhana Allah says a Lavina

00:24:47 --> 00:25:00

will talk to my inner Kulu whom be the Crayola with decree law. He talked to my inner Kulu those who believe and whose hearts find satisfaction. Find tranquility repair

00:25:00 --> 00:25:06

OSE in the remembrance of Allah, and without a doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find their satisfaction.

00:25:07 --> 00:25:49

And we mentioned in the beginning how much of your time is wasted, but some people try to still claim that music softens their heart, and gets them to reflect and become introspective. But the scholars said, if that were the case, then musicians would be some of the best people on Earth. And singers and rappers would be some of the best people. And if music makes you cleanse yourself in your heart and and your actions you will be some of the best people, but look at actors, look at athletes and look at musicians or singers or rappers and what have you, heavy metal and all this. And we know all of them get in trouble with the law every now and then. But without a doubt which

00:25:49 --> 00:26:08

group gets more it gets in more trouble than the rest is more known for heavy drug use and, and violence and ending up in jail than the rest. Everybody knows the answer. And it still can't be that this is something halal, but it's just surrounded with haram. Every inch of the way. It's just surrounded with haram.

00:26:10 --> 00:26:53

Allah subhanaw taala described his Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and sort of a long description. And part of it is your moral humble man Roe v. Wade, and how hormonal monka he enjoys good, and He forbids them from evil. While you Hill, Lulu homotopy about and he makes good things Hello. And this is a rule good things are halal. But then Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, you have to remove early human hubba if you have to remove him, I'll cover it and he makes evil things, things that are bad he makes that haram and that's the general rule. When something is higher is something good when something is haram It is generally or typically something that is bad.

00:26:55 --> 00:27:29

With that, even though there is a lot to say, and there yet and we can go through what the companions said about these ayat and the scholars said about these ayat and the earlier generations and the authentic hadith that people try to play game games with today, but we just wanted just to look at his descriptions. Does it sound like something that is okay? Does it sound like something that is halal? According to Coldharbour? was tougher Allah Allah, Allah Quran general rule Fosun Mustafi ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness Indeed, those who ask for his forgiveness shall prosper.

00:27:43 --> 00:27:51

hamdulillah Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah I mean, what are the early he was so happy Jemaine about

00:27:52 --> 00:28:41

what did the early Muslims call music Yanni from the time of the Sahaba, the generation after them and the generation after the what was the name for music, and the scholars listed all the different names people had for music, they call it Allahu Allahu Al botton Zor el mukha. DIA, Rukia, to Xena Purana shape on the moon between the Falcon physical assault and a hammock assault in third year, so to shaytaan ms model shaytaan, a su mood. And these are just some of the names there's like a half page of all the names they had for music, and some of these names who said it, they called it vain talk, they call it false talk. They called it the falsehood, the false testimony, the facilitator of

00:28:41 --> 00:29:20

fornication, the Quran of the Shaytaan, The flute of the Shaytaan, The Sound of the shaytaan the immoral sound, and there's a bigger list than what we just read. This is the these are the names if they wanted to say the word music, this is what they said they didn't say in Musil, as people do today, this is what they called it, this is how they refer to it. The question is, why is it that the most righteous generations in our own ma didn't have a single positive name from it for it? Because this is how it was this is how they viewed it. Now what happens is that sometimes people will say, well in this hotbar, you are giving us one opinion, and we know that there is a difference

00:29:20 --> 00:29:59

of opinion on music. No, there isn't. That is that is not accurate talk whatsoever. This is a difference of opinion. This is a difference of opinion. This is a difference of opinion. 6040 7030 6535. These are differences of opinion. 5050 50% of the scholars said yes, the other said no, that's a difference of opinion. This is not a difference of opinion at all. Yeah, honey, this is a true example. There was a Maliki scholar from the early nations and he was not like a a deviant or anything. He was a good scholar, but

00:30:00 --> 00:30:07

He mistakenly believed dog meat is halal. He made the mistake in the issue. He thought dog meat was halal.

00:30:08 --> 00:30:16

So if you asked me today is dog meat halal or haram? And I respond by saying, there's a difference of opinion.

00:30:18 --> 00:30:58

Would that be accurate? Is that a difference of opinion? Here the scholars of the Oman dog meat being Hara. But there's one guy somewhere who said that it's just a difference of opinion. This is exactly what people do today with the issue of music. Oh, there's a difference of opinion on music type. Let's look at the earlier generations was there a difference of opinion on this issue of music? The first of all the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there are issues that they disagreed upon. There were issues that the Companions disagreed upon. And we're aware of these issues. And you can choose the truth will be in within their opinions. You can choose whichever side

00:30:58 --> 00:31:38

They said even if you listen to it, we will not accept your testimony in court and you're labeled A fossa. And then they said listening and enjoying music is gopher. We're not saying this was correct. they based it on a weak Hadith they didn't know it was a weak Hadith. But just to let

They're the ones who do this and listen to this and sing. And the righteous don't do that. Imam Shafi they said that the person who

00:33:02 --> 00:33:43

listens to music is a Sufi and a first second, his testimony should not be accepted. He said, I left in Baghdad, something that the heretics introduced which they call tough beer, and tough beer. Look at what of beer is. It's poetry that encourages you to leave materialism and they would accompany this poetry, someone would be on like a like a kind of drum. And with a stick, as they're saying this poetry that encourages you to leave materialism. You know, I'm a chef and I says I love in Baghdad, something that the heretics introduced, they call it tough beer with which they distract people from the Quran.

He said if there is music involved in a dinner invitation or walima do not accept the invitation. And for those who were wondering about that, the scholar said, if someone invites you to a wedding and you know that there is going to be music if this person will be offended Yeah, and if it's a family member and they will be offended if you don't show up they said show up, give you a greeting your gift and stay for as little as possible then excuse yourself and leave and they made this exception because family ties would be higher ranked higher than everything

00:34:25 --> 00:34:49

Even Abdullah bar Imam will call to be a Oza a it's a long list 100 Somebody ignore him and the list goes on and on and on. Ignore Salah will play with poverty, even Roger will humbly ignore him even Hajer al hates me McCool Imam an nawawi Kodama Makdessi, Ibn Taymiyyah. I'm a shabby,

Ibrahim and Nakai, Abu Thora Aman, and it's just a long, long list of the top and most major scholars who never for a moment said that it was acceptable

00:35:00 --> 00:35:24

The former that had all the Companions, the early three generations, and then people will bring you from an undisclosed one.

You can stop right away. It's not like drugs. There is no patch for music. You don't have to slowly get yourself off of it. And there are many people who just stopped, never hit the play button.
