00:00:02--> 00:00:02

Yes,

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

hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah. About the end of music. This is a message for our believing brothers and sisters in a man who are afflicted with listening to music. Or were confused by statements of scholars who said that it was permissible. This is a message for our brothers and our sisters who listened to music, and their hearts have become attached to it. And their emotions were moved and they were swayed by it. But we have no doubt that there are believers who longed for paradise and love Allah and want to come closer to Allah azza wa jal. They are our brothers and our sisters, our uncles and our parents would have been temporarily defeated by the shaitaan. But we

00:00:54--> 00:01:36

know that they inshallah can defeat him multiple times. What can I say about music? And where do I begin? It has affected the hearts and swayed people away from the straight path. And it has caused the religion to take the backseat. It has caused people's addiction to the point where they left the foreign and abandoned the massage. What can I say about music? If you ask someone the simplest question about the Prophet salallahu it who said them, they cannot respond. If you ask them about the mothers of the believers, their own mothers, they could not even tell you their names. If you ask them about the prophets of Allah, or the companions of the unknown Jemaine, they cannot respond

00:01:36--> 00:01:57

to your questions. But they can tell you about individuals who sing and curse all day, and produce the worst messages for our youth, offering nothing positive to their communities or to the environment. They can tell you about those people and their childhood, and where they grew up, and who they married and who they're dating, and what year they put up their albums.

00:01:58--> 00:02:34

There's one study that says the youth from between the ages of 15 and 20, they listened to about 26.8 hours of music per week, about 27 hours of music per week, and those who are 55 and older, they listened to about 13 hours of music per week. And now with it being available online for free and many devices that can carry 1000s and 1000s of songs, you can expect these numbers to increase. The sad part brothers and sisters is that anytime someone commits a sin, He is using the blessing given to him by Allah as origin to disobey a laws or agenda.

00:02:35--> 00:03:12

And the sad thing is that we're going to be asked about all the blessings and how we use them on this earth. And hearing is one of the greatest of the blessings given to us and allies. So agenda will ask us about what we listened to on this earth. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran in a somewhat bizarre one for kulula economist Masuda here Allah Subhana Allah says verily the hearing in the sight and the heart, you will be questioned by Allah about all of these things. And so the righteous then they have recognized that the chiffon is their enemy, and they stayed away from the path that leads to the shaitaan.

00:03:13--> 00:03:58

When Allah azza wa jal commanded it believes Allah he learned to love to Prostrate to Adam, if lease refused and disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala. And then he vowed that he's going to misguide all human beings. So then Allah subhanaw taala mentioned to Iblees some of the ways that in which he's going to use people and to take people away from the fact of Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah tells him what steps is minister Trotman when basaltic will evaluate him beside Nikola julik Porsche company Amalia when they were at home? Why am I doing shavon in Aurora? In this verse, Allah azza wa jal tells the shavon and be full of them gradually, those whom you can amongst them with your voice. So what do

00:03:58--> 00:04:39

you think would be the voice of the shape on and right now these verses that we're going to mention, they do not say anything about music being Haram, but you start to see a kind of music being put in a bad light, but these verses are not saying that it's haram so far, but so far, now we're seeing that this larger yet it's starting to shape and guide home misguide whoever you can from humanity with your voice. So what is this voice? It includes songs and music and anything else. It is very general term, anything else that calls to the disobedience to Allah, or called anything away from Allah. So not just music, but this is a general term and make assaults on them with your cavalry and

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

infantry. And this also includes when someone is walking with their own feet to something that is haram or something that's prohibited and share with them wealth and children wealth, meaning tempt them to earn their money in illegal and haram ways and their children by getting people to try to commit illegal

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

elicit sexual activity and make promises to them. But chiffon promises them nothing but deceit. So we're still not saying we're showing it out or evidences that it's Haram. But we're starting to show that it's one of the tools of the shape on.

00:05:16--> 00:05:32

And before we get to the sayings of the Sahaba they love on home, and the evidence from the Quran and the Sunnah, and the great scholars and the Imams, we want to look at some logical evidence that will tell you there is probably something wrong with music and that it's probably not

00:05:33--> 00:05:54

just from looking at it from a distance and analyzing it, we're going to see that it's something that's not surrounded with good and it's probably something that's not valid, because I believe that every good Muslim knows deep down in their heart that music is haram. Perhaps some of us don't want to face that reality. But deep down they know that it's hard on

00:05:56--> 00:06:45

and this is illustrated in the story where a man came to the Companion of the law, if not best or the law hon Homer and he said give nobis fillerina A Hello, I'm Helen Oh nobis This music is singing. Is it halal or haram? And here Vienna is specifically is singing. So what is he asking about? He is asking about the Rena the singing of the Arab, the Bedouin Arabs, and they're singing, this is singing that does not include talking about fornication or homosexuality. It does not show people dancing, or videos, people any wearing I'm ashamed to say it between wearing bikinis or things of that sort or using bad words. So is asking what is this? Is this permissible? So that

00:06:45--> 00:07:17

tells him about a telco and Belton is that Yeah, I Omen piano, to aner Kunal Vina, he says, Do you see the truth and falsehood when they come forth on the day of judgment? Which side do you think music will be on? You think it will be on the side of truth on the side of the profits on the side of the Quran, and Vicar and so on? And so Allah and Allah azza wa jal, or it'll be on the side of falsehood. So the man said yakun albertan, that it will be with falsehoods. So if cannabis says that about them,

00:07:18--> 00:07:29

if they have a statement upset, he tells him what is besides the truth? Meaning if it's not the truth, it's falsehood. Go, you have answered your own question by yourself.

00:07:30--> 00:08:00

So the man knew the answer by himself. And I believe that we all know the answer. So let's look at just some of the logical evidences, we find that Hello things and good things. They generally have good descriptions and good attributes. When you look at prayer, you look at fasting reciting the Quran. When people gather to pray, generally good things happen in these gatherings. It's a good gathering. When people gather to recite the Quran, it's a good gathering and you don't find it being surrounded by things that are Haram.

00:08:01--> 00:08:40

But things that are haram are usually surrounded with things that are Haram. And look at the things that surround music. Whenever people gather around music. There are typically not gatherings of righteous people. You don't typically see the Imam of the masjid in that gathering and the Messiah and the Mufti of the of the city, you don't find righteous people typically, and you find intermingling, and women with their hair uncovered, and women who are poorly dressed and you will find alcohol and dancing and smoking. And that night usually ends with the sin of Xena for an occasion when a has been done. So this is the first indication then that it's haram because it's

00:08:40--> 00:09:26

always accompanied and surrounded with things that are hard on the second indication then and still without going into any of it howdy is the feeling that you get from music. It does not bring you closer to Allah, even the biggest music lover get a Muslim who is the biggest music lover, he will not be pleased if he hears rap music in domestic. Why? Because he knows this is not a feeling you're supposed to get in domestic we're talking about someone who is the biggest music lover in the community. If he enters the Juma and he finds the Imam app on the member with a big boombox. Then the Imam hits play and then a funky beat comes over. And then the Imam starts to freestyle. Yes,

00:09:28--> 00:10:00

the biggest music lover in the audience will become upset and offended. Why? Because they know this is something that is totally opposite of the feeling that he came to get. He came to be reminded of Allah azza wa jal and to listen to the areas in the Quran and the Hadith, which take him in one direction with the feeling that you get from music takes you in the opposite direction. And that's why many, many years ago, the early scholars of Islam they used to say that music in the Quran cannot be combined. In the heart of the believer. There's not enough room in your heart for both

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

For them, you either love one or the other. And like I said, you try that and test that when you get in someone's vehicle, you find the either have music tapes, or they have foreign tapes, they listen to one or the other.

00:10:13--> 00:10:50

And the Quran, it takes you in a direction where it prevents you from following your desires. And it commands chastity, and it commands modesty. And it controls these desires and prevents you from following the steps of the chiffon. And music takes you in a direction that's totally opposite. So of the feelings that music causes, it causes people to feel less shame, they feel a lack of shame, and they're less shy, and they're not embarrassed male or female. You see, when there's dog music played, they're not not very embarrassed to jump up and down and twirl and fall on the ground and get up again, they're not embarrassed to do that. And the women are not embarrassed to do that. Have

00:10:50--> 00:11:08

you ever heard of a female dancer who is too shy because there were men in the room? She says, I don't want to dance. There's too many men watching me, or I'm not dressed properly, I'm not covered, right? There really isn't associated with Hey, are you really associated with these feelings of emotion. But you find these people they don't care.

00:11:09--> 00:11:56

And notice how when people repent, and they come back to a lot, they usually stopped going to nightclubs and parties. Why is that? Because they know these are bad places. And these places are also associated with music. The second thing concerning the the feeling that you get from music is that it causes this fitness, it causes this is around arouses desires, the sexual desires in people, and even the fitna of the voice of women. And so it's not just enough that the voice of woman is enough to stir emotions in a man. But now these female singers, they're purposely making their voice softer. And they're dancing in ways that are sexually suggestive, and they're not wearing proper

00:11:56--> 00:12:03

clothing. So what do you expect, except that the man's heart is going to be moved by that, and his feelings are going to be moved by that.

00:12:04--> 00:12:33

And this is something that even Christians are aware of, there's a church called the Church of Christ. That's it. That's the name of it. And they don't have they don't believe in music in church, they don't believe in dancing, they look at it as sexually suggestive. And it's so surprising and shocking when Muslims see that there's absolutely nothing wrong with this type of behavior. When we look at the Quran, Allah azza wa jal says, For the woman, while I while I have written a bit of Giuliana de la, you may have seen I mean, Xena, Tina,

00:12:37--> 00:12:45

here Allah is saying to the woman, that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments.

00:12:46--> 00:13:26

So forget the voice, the soft voice of the woman, while she's shaking her head from left and right, and dancing and singing and jumping up and down a lot is forbidding the Muslim woman who are covered from head to toe, to not strike their feet in a loud way into the underground, so that their ankle bracelets and whatever God or ornaments they're wearing, will shake and make that sound and men will just know, they will not see anything, they will just know that this woman is or adorned with these things. If Allah is preventing this voice, what about then the woman come in and tell him you know, saying sweet things, And sweet words

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

played. So

00:13:32--> 00:14:10

the music also then the effects of it can move you in various ways. There was an Arab musician, his name was on farabi. This is from the early Muslims or from the past generations. And it is said that he would play his instrument and sing in a certain way, and the listeners would cry, and then he would play and sing in a certain way, then the people would laugh. And then he would play and sing in a certain way, and the people would sleep and then he would walk out. So they're not telling me that it does not affect people's behavior, or how they act. And On a final note on the feelings, which is better for you, and brings you closer to Allah subhanaw taala and it's better for your

00:14:10--> 00:14:12

heart and strings, strengthens your email.

00:14:13--> 00:14:25

Definitely, it's the Quran, and it's not Muslim to something like music. So how can it be the case? And how could we know this answer and yet people listen to more music than they do to the Quran.

00:14:27--> 00:15:00

What about then the message that you get some songs and now here's specifically I'm talking about things that you hear, like the the MTV type of mainstream pop culture, music, and even you know, if you want to consider the music that's played in the Muslim lines, generally, we're not talking about Nasheed that calling you to Allah, we're talking about the things that the majority of young men and women listen to predominantly this type of music that they listen to, what are the messages that come out of that? Have you ever heard one of these singers warning from alcohol or calling

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

to hedge up or call into righteousness, but the thing about Xena and when they sing about love, are they talking about a man loving his wife? They're always talking about a love that is for forbidden. And this is from shot and Sasha Allah so this is in the Quran in the Latino hipbone anti unfair feature film la Vina amanu la lahoma Arena dounia will hear allegedly saying those who love to see scandal published or broadcast amongst the believers will have grievious pano penalty or punishment in this life and the next. So again, let's think about what this is saying. Allows we did it saying those who would love not those who do it. Now those were pushing for it, those who would love for

00:15:46--> 00:15:57

the evil deeds to spread. They're the ones getting this punishment, and they just wanted to see that not those who are actively involved. So what are these messages from these songs telling us?

00:15:59--> 00:16:28

And for that reason, I've learned them as the Companion of the Allahu anhu. He used to say elvina, Brookdale to Xena. What does it mean roped into sin it means it is the way and the facilitator of fornication of Xena. And this is him speaking about the songs and the music in his time when a servant girl would sing, and she would not dance and she would not do it publicly. And she would not call the fornication nor talk about it. But yet it is called rocchetta Xena.

00:16:29--> 00:16:51

It is mentioned by the scholar Kodama. He mentioned in a tower being that a righteous man passed by a house and he heard a woman singing inside. And so what happened he was walking by but he slowed down a little bit so he can hear this woman. And so the owner came out and he said, Do you want to come in to listen? So the man said,

00:16:52--> 00:17:33

he said out of the villa, you seek refuge from Allah. So the man tells him he insisted, come inside and just listen. So the man says he let me sit in a place where I can't see her and she can't see me. So there is now a hijab between them, like a partition between them. So then the man entered, and she sang for him. And she beautifies her voice and she slept in her voice, and she used the weapon of the shavon. So then the owner of the house tells him would you like me to remove the sitter, the partition between you and her? So I said, the man said no, because he was a righteous man. So he insisted, until he removed the partition until he saw her. And so he combined the fitna

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

of hearing and the fitna of seeing

00:17:37--> 00:17:58

and that continued until he was completely overtaken with her. And so this righteous man then with come every day to listen to her, until one day she told him well, law. Hey, I love you. So he said, I couldn't keep a straight face there. She's had a law here. I've loved you. So he said, and I also love you.

00:18:00--> 00:18:40

And she called him to Xena. And she said, What would prevent you The place is empty. And he was shaken. And he said, Bella, he said, Yes, the place is empty. Well, I can need the arm and oferuje orbital cover. And I am not, I do not feel safe, that I will not be surprised with the color of Allah, the decree of Allah that I might die. Right now, some of the jimbaran kalaba medicial sin was a comb with a wheel in June. So he starts to mention the punishment, punishments of the Day of Judgment. He says, I'm not sure that that won't happen to me, and he went away weeping, and he never returned.

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

But look at how the shape on almost destroyed this man.

00:18:47--> 00:19:20

And how many young men have become attached to female singers? And when they hear their voices or see their pictures their hearts begin to raise and how many young women have posters of men in their pictures in their bedrooms and in their rooms. And so we see the effect of singing on women in particular. Yes, even they're worried he used to say Ave Maria is giving advice to Benny Amelia. Yakumo Elena. So in the table here, we see the Shahada, Murata, we're in the you know,

00:19:22--> 00:19:29

soccer for in Quintanilla with that I mean for Jenny boo Nisa for in Medina.

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

Xena. So he's saying Obama, you know he was gonna stay away from singing because it will take the modesty the shyness away from people and it will increase the desires of the lusts of people. With the Monroe I will take away like the like the manlihood of people were in Nevada, you know, go undercover like it can replace it can take the place of cover of alcohol meaning it can cause this kind of intoxication in the mind.

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

Last autumn if it was too cold and it can do what alcohol can do to people for in quantum lab with any if you're really going to do there's no other way virgin newborn Lisa didn't keep it away from women at least go and do not look the woman here this for in Medina a Dahlia to Xena singing this is one of the the callers to for indication.

00:20:24--> 00:21:09

Also the finale, Priscilla marignan, Abdul Malik, he heard someone singing, so he was upset. He heard someone singing at night. So in the morning had the person or the singers gathered and they brought them to him. So he tells them in salsa, Laos, for search for the stone, the cola harmonica, that meaning that when the male horse makes his sound, the female horse prepares to meet. We're in alfalah layer, your photographer, Ola Hanako. And the camel also he makes the sound and the sheep Kambou gets ready for him. Well, in that case, delay I need statistics from Allah who lands and the the the same thing also with the sheep, or the goats, the male, the male goat makes the sound and

00:21:09--> 00:21:52

she the male, the female also gets prepared for him. We're in a Roger loo later one for the staff who left and the man would sing, and then the woman would learn for him. And then he ordered them to be taken away from the area. But actually, he actually first ordered them to be punished more severely on Omar Abdullah is the scholar was there. And he told him that that is not like a prescribed punishment. So he had them only sent away to another area. This is the effect that male singers can have on the woman he had a very nice voice and he would recite poetry in a very nice rhythmic and melodic way. And this would also help the camels as they would travel and it would make

00:21:52--> 00:21:58

the for the for the camels it would make them easier for them to beat this rhythm that they would walk to

00:21:59--> 00:22:43

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told Anisha just to begin to to make these, like this singing or this recitation. And it was a very nice voice. And then the prophets have a lot harder said than feared for the women at the end of the caravan. So he said yeah, and Joshua Roy, aka me, Joshua, rip conville kawari he said yeah, it's time to stop It's enough now out of fear for malaria, which are which are glass bottles, but he's he likened the woman to that because they're delicate. So what is the problem stop him because it would have a bad effect on the hearts of women, when they hear this man with a beautiful voice. because it affects people like that.

00:22:45--> 00:22:52

Also, there was a man, his name was Mama, Evelyn with a mammogram within the he narrates about the poet's.

00:22:54--> 00:23:18

And his name was, and he was traveling with his daughters, and he came near to a people from benecol, the type of money. So they feared and that he would dislike something he sees from them, and he might attack them with his poetry. So this meant that he was known for attacking people with his words, and his poetry. And if he attacked you, it became popular and it was kind of recorded against you.

00:23:19--> 00:23:38

And he was so famous for this that one day, he found nobody to attack, he attacked his own mother in his poetry. And it gets worse than that. One day, he really wanted to attack somebody. He couldn't find anybody. So he looked in the mirror and saw the reflection of his face, and started to write poetry cursing his own face.

00:23:39--> 00:23:55

So you can imagine now why they were so afraid of this man. So they came to him and they said, Tell us what you like. So we can do it, and what you hate so we can stay away from it. We don't want to make you upset. So this man, he said to them, Do not la Tunica, Tehran, Fatima Looney.

00:23:56--> 00:24:20

And so do not visit me too much, you'll get bored of me, went out to smear oni avani should be vertical, for in Nelvana rock beer to Xena. He said do not let me hear the songs of your young men and women. Because singing is one of the facilitators to Xena. And what he meant was I have my daughter with me on the strip. And I would not like her to hear that.

00:24:22--> 00:24:59

And I'm not going to read you the examples of lyrics from contemporary music today, or from Hip Hop or rough whatever they call you. The reason I'm not going to do that is I'm too ashamed to do that. Because they really talk about extremely, extremely filthy things, and bad words left and right. And even if there were no sisters in the room, I would be too ashamed to recite to you some of the lyrics that are being said in today's music. But the people know a lot of people are very familiar with the explicit type of music and the themes that they're talking about. And we as we mentioned, they're never righteous things. It's always the worst

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

behavior that they're calling you to. So then what about now we discussed the message. So what about the writers of this message? What is the message that the writers of musical lyrics are trying to get across to you? What are they writing about? And who writes these words? Are they scholars upstanding individuals, right? Just men and women? You look at heavy metal. It's, you know, usually sex drugs, devils and killing yourself. And I know I'm generalizing rap. It's Sex, drugs, murder, garden tools, and how many garden tools that you have.

00:25:32--> 00:25:47

And understand degrading women talking about, you know, pimping and things that are so embarrassing to mention. blues, it's about hard times broken hearts and being broke yourself. Country music, my truck broke down, my dog ran away. And I have

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

and I have a broken heart as well.

00:25:52--> 00:26:06

So are the writers of these songs people that you would like to get advice and words of wisdom from? What is puff Diddy attempting to tell you in his lyrics? What would you get advice from someone who his name is Snoop Doggy? Kelly?

00:26:07--> 00:26:08

Snoop Dogg and tell him

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

so.

00:26:12--> 00:26:48

And would you take advice from me today? Come on Mickey. If I was sitting here dressed in baggy and sagging pants, and I had a grill in my mouth, and I was cursing, would you accept advice from me any kind of advice from me? So why do people didn't listen to the lyrics of these people and accept their advice? So someone might argue that this doesn't affect me, you know, I listen to this music. It's just entertainment. And it doesn't affect me. And someone like that. I would ask Have you ever been to a high school? When you enter a high school today, and you look at people can you just from how they dress identify those who listen to heavy metal and punk rock, just from how they dress, and

00:26:48--> 00:27:18

those who listened to hip hop just from how they dress dress, and who are the people who are called the Goths or listened to isn't that a subculture that is related to Gothic music, and cases of suicides from listening to songs you may remember, in the 80s, there was a lawsuit against a man Ozzy Osborne because, you know, some kids listen to his song and he shot himself he committed suicide. I mean, whether or not he told him to do so. But the point is, some people are affected by these kinds of things.

00:27:19--> 00:27:49

I'm gonna snap that, as he is above the law and who the halifa he wrote to the, the tutor of his son's Debian with teach poetry and refined manners and things of that sort. So he wrote to him saying, Let your first lesson to them be the hatred of musical instruments that begin with the shape on and end with the Wrath of Allah. For it reached me from the people of knowledge, listening to music and songs grows hypocrisy in the heart, the same way water causes plants to grow.

00:27:51--> 00:28:30

So with that, we say to the one who listens to music, oh, Muslim, lawful things have good attributes. Where is the good in singing, dancing and listening to flutes? Can we compare the words of singers and sounds of musicians to the glorious for an it's lessons, wisdoms and admonitions? How many seniors Do you know and give admiration? And how many do you know of the companions and the following generation? How much do you spend on singers from your dollars? compared to how much you know of Islamic scholars? Do you see how much is memorized of music songs while you ignore the book to which memorization belongs? How much do you memorize these incantations and sway back and forth

00:28:30--> 00:28:54

in intoxication? Have you not seen those who follow the misguided and increase the loudness of the music when they should hide it? And who writes these songs? finger thinkers are men of academia or maybe scholars like mathematic or maybe even Tamia? Or you go listen to music Don't you see that all the songs of the world and all the lyrics you've seen wouldn't compare in reward to Alice lamb me.

00:28:57--> 00:29:19

It replaces the Quran brothers and sisters. It replaces the Koran in people's hearts. Mr. knab did as he said to his son, his sons have had zero como la Vina Waheguru como Dana. Dana, I warn you of singing three times for Mr. Ma who have done in the answer Hola. Hola. are no one listens to it, except that Allah will cause him to forget the horn

00:29:21--> 00:29:32

and people listen to music and they can cry and they listen to the Quran and they don't cry and they can stand for hours on their feet at a concert but if the Torah with it gets a little bit too long they cannot bear it

00:29:34--> 00:29:45

once got to ask them one which does Allah Allah love more for an or music and demand support? And he said then why do not you Why don't you love what Allah loves more? What is your reason for that?

00:29:47--> 00:29:52

There's a question from the greatest website in the world. You know know what that is?

00:29:53--> 00:29:55

Islam Curie calm. You've heard that before.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

Look at this question. I'm not going to read the answer or anything but just look

00:30:00--> 00:30:24

The way this person framed this question, he said, I'm a person who believes in the existence of Allah, no matter how far I stray from Allah, I turned back to him with humbleness. But I listened to classical music. And I think that it is the best thing in my life. It does not provoke desire. Rather, it helps me review myself and my mistakes. I felt that is I feel that Islam is a backward religion, when I hear those who say that all kinds of music are

00:30:25--> 00:30:46

just look at this question. And this just tells him, you said it's the best thing in your life. And you didn't mention Allah. And you didn't mention the Koran. And you didn't say Islam was the best thing in your life. Look at how it takes over people's lives, people. And he says, it helps me review myself and my mistakes. So the shift said to him, you obviously it didn't help you review this mistake when you wrote it.

00:30:50--> 00:31:33

And he tells me you feel it's a backward religion just because of this. You see how much now it takes over people's lives and their hearts. And so they defend it and they tell you well, it calms you down, and it relaxes your nerves. So which calms you down and relaxes your nerves that's, or when you have a calamity, you listen to music or you run and you rush to Allah azza wa jal and you beg and you cry to Allah subhanaw taala didn't unless pantallas in the Quran. alladhina amanu Optima in Kowloon, the decree law, Allah, Allah, follow those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah. For without doubt in the remembrance of Allah, do hearts

00:31:33--> 00:31:34

find satisfaction.

00:31:36--> 00:32:02

And at some scholars argue, if music really made you, you know, more refined person and more gentle and calms your nerves, and so on and so forth. It did soften the hearts, then the hearts of the musicians would be the best of hearts, and their attitude and behavior would be the best. But what do we find as a reality, that they are the people who behave the worst. So that means it can't be something that gets you to behave better. So

00:32:04--> 00:32:29

before we even started to look at the I FM that Howdy, we saw that it was surrounded with heroin, the people involved with it, and the people who write it are not amongst the righteous, and many times they're from the dissidents, and their messages are not good. And the effects of music are not good. And the effects of music break do not bring you closer to Allah. And the worst thing is that it replaces the Quran and it takes up so much of people's time as we looked at the numbers.

00:32:31--> 00:32:32

And

00:32:33--> 00:33:04

generally Allah Subhana Allah will make a lot for us everything that is good, and he will make haram for us everything that is bad to fiddle around with a bat, what you have remarked about and so you will find anything that is hubby's, anything that is bad or impure will be at some point or another prohibited or disliked in Islam. And so under this I you can easily put something like cigarettes, no one will say, you know, cigarettes are from the play you but they're definitely from the Kabbalah. And so they would fall under this if

00:33:06--> 00:33:30

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari and it is just a de. He said there will be amongst my oma people who permit like when an enormity of one is the following and Hara will hurry while humbrol massive, there will be people from my alma who permit for things you stay alone means literally they make Allah

00:33:31--> 00:34:05

and Hara which is adultery or fornication, and silk and alcohol and musical instruments. This is why it's so hard. It's in the book of Buhari. So the first thing is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes to Him alone, which means they make halon which means that the things he's about to mention they're all Haram. Otherwise, he wouldn't say they make it hell out if it was already Hello. And the words used in the Hadith was is massive, which literally means musical instruments. And this includes if the general terminal includes all kinds of musical instruments.

00:34:07--> 00:34:08

And

00:34:09--> 00:34:16

as the as the ayat that we heard woman assuming yesterday that when Heidi do the ba, ba, ba, ba, ba he provided him

00:34:18--> 00:34:20

with to hit the wall who's wa

00:34:21--> 00:34:38

and Allah is saying and of mankind is He who purchases I will talk to misleads people from the path of Allah without knowledge. And so by way of mockery, for such there will be a humiliating torment. This is in sort of lachemann so here in this verse, then

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

it is not a clear indication that music is haram. But again, it's being mentioned in a bad light in the Quran. But then we see what how the companions and the early Muslims in the scholars of Islam understood this word now and Howdy, which could be idle talk. So the majority of the mufa, serene, they stay that level and Hadith in this verse.

00:35:00--> 00:35:47

refers to singing. And another group said that it is every kind of sound dealing with entertainment and which includes fluids and stringed instruments and so on. And in Sierra tabari, the scholar of the Ibis says that this means singing. And Mujahid Rahim Allah also says this means playing the drum the public. And it has an adversary says this, it was revealed concerning singing and musical instruments. So these are all great scholars, and this is how they understood this verse. And one of the one of the more recent scholars of Saudi Aramco, Allah said that this includes all manner of haram speech. So we're starting to see in summary that either it refers to just singing and music or

00:35:48--> 00:35:55

any false thing that leads you away from Allah subhanaw taala, including lying, backbiting, or including music and singing.

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

But the other scholars also

00:35:59--> 00:36:19

said the interpretation of the Sahaba, the companions and the generation after them, that level Hadith refers to singing is sufficient is saying, and eponymous Rhodes, Prague, Allahu anhu was asked what does it mean that with Hadi and he swore by Allah, when did he not in the in the horn in Ghana, three times? When did he lie?

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

Well, the de la

00:36:23--> 00:36:27

Vina, and this is Abdullah Massaro, who says,

00:36:28--> 00:36:38

that I took 30 saw a fresh from the mouth of the Prophet salallahu it and he has spoken the truth even if he does not swear to us and repeat it three times.

00:36:40--> 00:36:45

And it was also really, really, really unrelated or narrated that with a

00:36:46--> 00:37:25

snatch chain of narration, that number also said that this is referring to singing. So whether or not you want to argue that this ayah now is saying is haram or not. It's just mentioning it in a bad light. We find that the majority of the mufa city and the early Muslims in this index, companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are saying that this is talking about music. And so look at the names that the Muslims had for music. They didn't call it Messiah as they do now in Arabic, they didn't call it art and all these fancy names that we give it. These are the names that Muslim used to refer to music, they would call it a no. And lo and Barton zu l mocha across the rocker to Xena Khurana

00:37:25--> 00:38:07

shavon wound between mythography local assault and assault in third year, so to shape on Muslim watershape on and it's a mood, they would call it vain talk false talk false hood, the facilitator of fornication, the way of fornication, the whole honor the shape on the flute of the sheath on the sound of the sheath on the immortal sounds. These were the names that people had for music. And when you look at what people used to call something, it gives you an indication of how they felt about it when it was first introduced to them. For example now, and a lot of Arabs they refer to the singer as a finance, finance as a singer. As if another word for none. Literally it refers to a donkey.

00:38:07--> 00:38:40

It's a donkey that is striped which is like a zebra. So that means when the Muslim is started to see all these singers, they gave them a name that was befitting and they call them donkeys. Also like the theater in Arabic is referred to as the master. The theater is called the Master Master has the place where the animals like gather and eat and relieve themselves and things of that sort. That means also when the righteous Muslims first saw people on stage and don't acting silly, and they said, Well, these people acted like animals. And they called the say the theater, the stage the mustard, where the animals fool around.

00:38:41--> 00:38:53

And also you find the early Muslims used to call male singers, the male singer was called the mohana. This is someone who was an effeminate type of man, someone who is you know, flaky

00:38:57--> 00:39:34

the prophets of alarm system said two sounds are a cursed in this world and the next, a sound of musical instruments in a time of happiness, and the sound of wailing during a calamity. And we're going to look at some of these more in the next talk in sha Allah. Also Allah Subhana Allah mentions when Nadine and I shadow in a zoo, what is not a robot knows way more Rukia Rama and those who do not witness the like the false hood if they pass by some evil talk or evil play, they pass by it with dignity, meaning it does not affect them. So Mohammed is not hanafy yet, and who can tell us who's Mohammed bin Hannah here.

00:39:36--> 00:39:37

Now

00:39:38--> 00:39:57

the son of rally of the Allahu anhu and he was not going to stand from Fatima. So he was referred to as ignorance and fear. Then he was asked what is azura that we just mentioned in this verse, he said in the whole of Ghana, the unknown jameelah we can decree LA, he said it's singing because it diverts you away from dimension of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Like was insistent

00:40:00--> 00:40:26

put onto the godfather of Porsche, as I'm in heaven. Howdy, Hitachi Boone. What's up Hakuna Matata, boom, one semitone. In this verse, Allah Subhana. Allah says, like you Marvel from this speech, and you laugh, and you do not cry, what unten semitone if not best, it is time, we don't mean some of our noon that you're singing, the Arab used to say is smuggler meaning vanilla, nothing for us. And this is,

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

you know,

00:40:29--> 00:40:41

meaning that when the ratio would the the profits of the low level or the Muslims would recite for an they would drown out the verses of the Quran by their singing the lesson how to add a review to them here.

00:40:43--> 00:41:12

So when we say then, that it is haram, we're accused of being backwards, people who are against art and creativity, but really in music, it has wasted the time of our young men and women with hours and hours of listening to it and following the news of those who created and they have not learned their religion, nor have they learned any other sciences, and have not even become involved in politics. I've visited one country in Eurasia. And

00:41:14--> 00:41:52

the government there part of their policy is to keep the youth occupied with music constantly. There is absolutely nothing on their television except music all night and day. And the only time that is interrupted is to show them a movie music all the time. And so it is very disheartening and very sad that all the youth, the young men and women, the only thing they care about is this musician, and he divorced, so and so. And this one has a new album out. And that's all they think about. And they're not involved in anything that helps them better their life or their society or their country.

00:41:54--> 00:42:39

And so music begins with the shaper, and it ends with the anger of a man and it moves people to ugly things and it decreases your higher. And so you see people they clap and they move up and down and they scream and they spin and they're not ashamed and we seek refuge in the protection of law from these things. Some of the early wisdom used to say singing brings hypocrisy in people. And in that they're stuck become stubborn and candid lying and ripka which is which is when the man is not like you know, manly or like you know hard anymore becomes soft and he becomes softened by this. So we look at some of the opinions and of the companions and the scholars of Islam and the companions,

00:42:39--> 00:43:22

there are some issues that the Sahaba disagreed upon. So you can choose this side or that side. But on the issue of music, they did not disagree once there is no disagreement of the companions, they have each mouth on this issue, consensus that this thing that music was Haram. There is not any companion who said that it's okay and anyone who says so we challenge them to bring us proof of any one companion who said that it's okay. If the master only held that listening to musical instruments give birth to disbelief and hypocrisy in the heart. If the Ibis had his heart on this road, javelina Abdullah not single a single one of them said that it's okay. And of the four mam's if no, Kwame

00:43:22--> 00:43:28

Rahim Allah He mentioned the method of Eman Abu hanifa is the strictest in this regard.

00:43:29--> 00:43:41

And his comments and the comments of his students are the harshest, he says I mean, the points are his companions. And by that I mean that the students have remarkable hanifa

00:43:44--> 00:44:20

they clearly stated that it's haram to listen to old musical instruments. And they said the person who listens to them is as fast as someone who is a dissolute someone who lacks moral restraint or rebuild this evil door whose testimony should be rejected. So just for listening to Jay Z, we do not accept your testimony anymore. And they also said that music and listening to music and enjoying it is covered. Now, they said it's covered but they base that on a week. Howdy. So we're not saying what they say. But it just shows you To what extent to what extent Rihanna fees went

00:44:21--> 00:44:25

above and Eva Rahim Allah said Elena min Akbar is no and that he he.

00:44:27--> 00:44:54

He said that singing is one of the biggest sins that someone needs to leave immediately. And Mr. Malik when asked about not when asked about singing, he was asked about people who said singing was permissible. He said, My if I were in dinner in delta, no one would do that except someone who is dissolute and it is only the sin people sinful people who do that.

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

And the scholars say this was also based on the view of the people of Medina meaning

00:45:00--> 00:45:17

The people who lived in the city of Medina, and just a few generations ago they have seen the prophets of the law send them and or the companions of the Prophet Selim and how they lived and behave. So that means they were upon this view, as well, because they never saw the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam accepting something like that.

00:45:19--> 00:45:44

You know, Michelle said that the person is a facet and his testimony is not accepted. He also has another famous saying, he says, I left behind in Baghdad, something that the heretics introduced, which they called the beer with which they distract people from the Koran. So a chef is saying people start to come up with something called a tough beer. So what is this beer? Basically, it's the type of poetry which encourages ascetic life

00:45:45--> 00:46:30

tells you to leave the dunya and it is sung by someone while he strikes a rod against some kind of drum or dried skin. So this is the comment of a chef on something like that. Until now, no video, no music videos, no poor clothing, no bad words, calling people to leave from the materialism of the world. And yet he called it something that only the heretics introduced and they distract people from the Quran. With this estimated number of Allah who used to see elvina young within the soccer field. What are your journey that it creates if sprout hypocrisy in the heart and I do not like it, and not one of the former that have said that music is not one of the former head and of the other

00:46:30--> 00:46:42

scholars atheism. He said that singing is part of falsehood. As an investor he said that if there is music involved in a dinner invitation in Lima, then do not accept the invitation.

00:46:43--> 00:47:11

And the other scholars in normal court to be in Abu Dhabi and even Salahuddin Raja will somebody and if you hate me, and McCool and Noah, we and many others in local democracy, and even Tamia and a shabby, and Ibrahim unnecessary, and it will throw a knot among all of these people, all these great men, all these big names, saw that it was hard on. So who will you convince you of these people do not convince you.

00:47:13--> 00:47:30

And if you're somebody he said that whoever attributes the opinion, permitting music, to any of the scholars who are respected in legal issues, has surely heard, anyone who says scholars said this scholar said is, is permissible, and that was a respectable scholar, for sure this person is mistaken.

00:47:32--> 00:48:18

So this young boy, he was downloading music for free online. And as he was downloading, he saw the length of, of each song and how long it was. And he thought to himself, that for the for the length of this entire song, every second of the length of this song, Allah is going to be upset with me every second. And so by himself, he canceled all of the downloads. The thing that we want to remind and maybe conclude with is that death can come at any moment, know that the Angel of Death overlooked you and took the souls of your brothers, and one day is going to come to you and overlook others. Some people would be sitting and listening to music, without any fear that the angel of

00:48:18--> 00:48:30

death will come upon them. At that moment, it will favor him a whole lot. He mentions a singer, someone who is a music lover, back then in his generation, and he was dying, he was in his deathbed.

00:48:32--> 00:49:19

So they told him say, you know, in the law, and he started to repeat songs, they stole him in LA and he kept singing. And when he couldn't say the words to the songs anymore, he began to make sounds and he would say tintina tintina that the rhythm with his mouth until the soul left his body. He was not able to say that in a handle. And in our times today, there is a story told by in one of the Muslim countries, people who are like doing motorist assistance in the highways in a Muslim country. He says I got used to seeing horrible things and injured people along the roads. One day we were making our rounds. And we heard a sound horrible sound of two cars that had collided. So we rushed

00:49:19--> 00:49:59

to the area. And we found two cars that were in a head on collision and were utterly destroyed. We rushed to assist the people. And it was indescribable. In the first car. There were two young men, and they were in a very bad state. He says we took them out as they began to scream from the pain. And we rushed to the other car and we found the driver had died. So we returned to those two. And they were in the state of the bar, meaning the soul now is leaving their bodies. So my partner rushed to them to say and we tell them c'est la Ilaha in the law, that they would be moaning in pain, the law and they're not responding. So then when they started to be in the pangs of death and

00:50:00--> 00:50:03

The last minutes of death, or there were almost dead.

00:50:04--> 00:50:07

They began to repeat words from songs.

00:50:08--> 00:50:09

And they remained,

00:50:11--> 00:50:52

repeating these voices, until just singing, just singing, constantly just singing, lyrics from songs, constantly instilling them in our head a lot, and they're only singing from songs. And then these voices, their voices started to gradually decrease, then the first one became quiet. And after that, the second one became quiet. We put all three in our car, and we took them to the morgue. He said, My partner and I, on the drive to the morgue, we were not speaking and we both quiet. Suddenly, my partner turned to me. And he started to talk to me about death, and the good and the bad and on Earth, until we got to the hospital and we put the dead and we left. From that day

00:50:52--> 00:51:35

onwards, every time I attempted to listen to music, I see the images of the two men as a bid for well to this dunya with the sound of the shape on six months later, there was another accident. It was a young man who had a flat tire, and he was fixing it. And he got to the back of the car to take the spear out, and a speeding car came and it's smashed into him. So I quickly went with another one of my co workers, and they unmanned was on the ground, and he had signs of righteousness on him. But his body was destroyed from the collision. We put him in the car. On our way I said to myself, I will do as my other friend did, and I will get him to say the Shahada. And then he started to make

00:51:35--> 00:52:10

sounds that we couldn't figure out. So we were rushing to the hospital. Then his speech began to become clearer. He was reciting the Quran. In a beautiful voice, we turned to him and he was reciting with Kishore and sukoon. And his bones were broken and he was covered with blood on his clothes, and he was on his way to his death. We started to speed up even more, he kept reciting in a beautiful voice. I have never heard the voice of the recitation of the Quran so beautiful. And he was saying, in the livina, in the login account or upon Allah,

00:52:11--> 00:52:17

that Allah Allahu Allah, Allah Taha for wallet as an optional, Belgian nothing that you don't

00:52:18--> 00:52:51

know the outcome will have to do with will asherah Welcome fee homage to him, Allah confy hamata down, he was saying, those who say look at what he is reciting, and these are his last words, those who say Our Lord is Allah and stands straight and steadfast, the angels descend upon them from time to time, saying, fear not and grieve not, but you receive the glad tidings of Paradise that you were promised. We were your protectors in this, we are your protectors in this life. And the next imagine we starting this ayah and these words,

00:52:52--> 00:53:12

where you will have all that your soul's desire, and you will have all that you asked for a hospitable gift from the one that is most forgiving and most merciful. He says, My coworker and I listened to that voice, then suddenly I felt a shiver run through my body and the voice stopped. We turned around and found him with his finger in the air. And he was saying,

00:53:15--> 00:53:51

We stopped the car and I jumped in, I ran to the back, and I touched his hand and I checked his breath, and I checked his heartbeat, there was nothing. And I began to cry. My pet my partner turned to me and he said, What happened? I said, the young man has died. Matha Cheb and he just and he died while reciting the Quran. So my friend exploded into tears. As for me, I could not control myself and I began to cry uncontrollably and my tears and my tears wouldn't stop. We continued on the way to the hospital. And when we got there, we asked his family about him. And they said he was praying constantly at night and reciting the Quran.

00:53:52--> 00:53:54

And for that they should be then

00:53:55--> 00:54:38

there should be an admonition and an indication for those of us who walk around with iPods and constantly listen in their cars and in their online and in the planes and everywhere else. There there should be then an indication and an admission in that. But a lot of times when we see stories like this, people say, this will not happen to me. I mean, I listened to music, but this won't happen to me. But the truth is brothers and sisters, this is beyond our control. And I will try to illustrate this to you. Have you ever had a song stuck in your head, a dumb song that perhaps you don't even like, stuck in your head all day, and you are conscious and awake and you can't get it

00:54:38--> 00:54:39

out of your head?

00:54:40--> 00:54:57

all day. This is while you're conscious and awake and you can't control it. So what about when you're in the stupors of death stupors meaning like a drunken state. If you're 100% awake and you can control a song in your head, what makes you think you can control it when you're in the stupors of death

00:54:59--> 00:55:00

and a song that

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

You love might come out.

00:55:04--> 00:55:30

And so these thought songs, they roll off our tongues easily. I'm going to ask you, I'm going to, I'm going to give you some lyrics. All right. And if you can complete them, you can complete them out loud. Or you can complete them internally. Or, you know, whatever you like. We will not accuse you of knowing these songs, because some of them I had to call friends and got these lyrics from some of them. I heard from commercials and even in the newscast, I would hear them. So if I say Who let the

00:55:31--> 00:55:34

you know the end. And if I say oops, I

00:55:36--> 00:55:36

don't worry.

00:55:38--> 00:55:40

I love you. You love me.

00:55:42--> 00:55:43

Born to Be

Ain't no mountain.

00:55:56--> 00:56:00

I believe I can you say I'm a dreamer, but

00:56:02--> 00:56:03

we will we will.

00:56:05--> 00:56:07

It's outcast. All right. On right on. Right on. Right on. Right on right on, right.

00:56:41--> 00:56:44

Okay, complete the verses.

moving. So what makes us think we will be able to say that in the law so easily when music rolls off our tongue and lyrics rolls off your tongue so easily. And the Quran has to struggle to come out of our mouth. There was a doctor, and he's a righteous man in Sharla. Don't overpraise him. He said in his career in a Muslim land. 36 people died in front of him 36 people and he would tell them, c'est la isla de la. And in his entire career, only one person was able to say La la la la. And he would say that now, I guarantee you can say it a million times if you want to right now. And everyone thinks they'll be able to say it. But out of 36 you only saw one person able to say nothing.

00:58:04--> 00:58:20

So trust yourself. What rolls off of your tongue easily. When you have a close call or you drop something and it breaks? What is the first thing on your tongue? Do you say Bismillah? Subhana Allah now and I have a lot of stuff with a lot or is it a bad word? Oh, sugar, or something else?

00:58:21--> 00:59:02

Or do you start damning things because something happened or something broke. So in this dunya Well, you're 100% awake and conscious. The first thing that rolls out of your tongue is something bad, or a bad word. What makes you think you can say law in the law, and it will roll off your tongue easily. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said men can Africa who for dunya. Allah the 100 agenda, whoever his last speech isn't just doing his luck, he will enter into paradise. And so now, the whole point is not to make you think you will not be of those people ask a lot of xuejun that all of us are those who say that I have a loser final word. But the point is to make us afraid of our bad

00:59:02--> 00:59:45

deeds. There was a man his name was done and candy and he was a singer. And he sat with like kind of a guitar type instrument with his friends on the road. And he was singing and they were clapping and enjoying some of the lessons Oh, they loved one who he came, and he passed by them. And so they left and he grabbed this man's done and candy. He grabbed them and he shook him and he said yo when on mass and I had a soul, no kind of a conductor. I said, Oh young man, what an excellent voice this would be if only you were reciting the Quran. or in another narration he tells him no condom I use Mohammed firstly soltec al Willem Tierra del Quran couldn't enter enter. He said if what was heard

00:59:45--> 00:59:55

from your voice was the resist recitation of the Quran. content and meaning you would have been the one people will turn to people would look to for leadership. And so

00:59:57--> 00:59:59

zadan Then he asked the people who was

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

They told him that was underlying the Mr. Own. He said that was the learning was the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. They said yes, so he ran to other learners. And he began to cry to him and he broke his instrument. And even the Mossad embraced him and he cried, and he said, key fell out with him, both men have bahala said, How can I not love the one whom Allah loves? Why does Allah love him? Because in the law, you have both the well being, or you should be multiple hearing. Allah loves those who constantly repent and those who purify themselves. So the man repented. And that's why even Mr. Lloyd cried and hugged him, and then stayed with him until he became one of the

01:00:38--> 01:00:40

Imams in the Quran.

01:00:41--> 01:01:18

Perhaps some people who listen to this were angered by some of my speech, because it showed fault in something that they loved. But remember that we're only calling into something that is more beloved to you. We're calling you to Allah subhanaw taala, to the speech of Allah to the Quran, and no one is offended when he is called to something that is greater. So if you're going to, you're about to eat a meal, and someone invites you to a meal that you love more, you do not become offended. And so that's what we're doing. We're calling people. And we're sure that they love Allah more, and that they love the Quran more. We want people to take the position of Imam Malik when he was a young boy,

01:01:18--> 01:01:59

and he wanted to become a singer and his mother moved him towards knowledge. And now he's one of the Imams of the oma. today. Islam really and truly needs you to defend it against atheism, to bring people to Allah to teach the youth and to teach the kids their religion and the proper role models to have and to defend it against ideological attacks and political attacks. Your Prophet sallallaahu salam is being insulted every month in every year, when you plug up your ears with your iPod as if nothing happens. So take this, then those who listen to music, take it as your first step, and go home and delete your music files and break your CDs and come back to Allah or turn to him even more.

01:02:00--> 01:02:39

I want to conclude by sharing something very personal with you, when I used to listen to music, and I wish to attempt to learn to play guitar. And then I heard that music was hot on but I didn't want to believe it. But I knew that was the truth. Because every time I listened to music, that feeling wasn't the one I was getting now at the classes in the massage and reciting the Quran. So we became more and more convinced that it was haram without reading a single book or article on the topic. And I thought there was no way I can stop listening to music. But what happened was that once I was very busy for two or three days, and I didn't have any time to listen to music, after the two or three

01:02:39--> 01:02:41

days were over, I realized that

01:02:42--> 01:03:12

I didn't even have the longing for it. And you don't really need to listen to it. There is no addiction, there is no patch, or gum involved in quitting music. I just stopped listening to it. And, and there was no shaking or anything of that sort. So it's not that difficult to stop yourself. And one of my family members, I have two brothers and two sisters. And I'm not they don't want me to disclose which one. But one of my family members was still continuing to listen to music.

01:03:13--> 01:03:16

And so he or she said that one day,

01:03:17--> 01:03:47

they saw a row, a dream in which the profits are the lowest and then visited us in our house. And the person this family member said I was very excited when I came to know that the President Selim is in the rooms in one of our house and he was talking to you meaning me and my mother we were with the process of settling and talking to and I'm you know we're from Sudan. So in Sudan, when a guest comes you you bring a tray and you put it pour some Pepsi and you bring it to the guest. So she said I want to get Pepsi for the profits of the law.

01:03:50--> 01:03:58

And when I, he went to take, and I'll throw you off, when he went to take the the drink,

01:04:00--> 01:04:18

the person stopped by the bathroom. And in the bathroom, they felt that there was something there the person felt that there was something in the bathroom, he found a baby boy sitting in the bathtub. And he was very cute. And he was singing a song in Arabic ever admitted in a wallet that a gentleman will

01:04:20--> 01:04:23

take this little boy away from me this little boy is gonna drive me crazy.

01:04:24--> 01:04:38

The person says I looked at him and then I remembered that I have to take the Pepsi. But I was delayed in looking at this boy and I when I got to the room, the profits that allows him was gone. But there was a very strong, beautiful odor in the room.

01:04:40--> 01:05:00

person says I woke up very happy. And days later I kept thinking about it. And I started to think about the lyrics of the song. And I realized that the child was adorable, and it was alluring. And it was singing and it made me miss the visit of the prophets of Allah to send them. So it diverted me from the profits of the loss and then I was diverted from the process of them because of

01:05:00--> 01:05:09

singing to the point that I didn't even see him and didn't show him the hospitality of offering the drink to the guest. And all was left was the sense of the profits of a bottle. So

01:05:11--> 01:05:45

I'll conclude with a verse from the Quran, Allah Subhana. Allah says, Allah who redrew and your toolbar Allah, we read levina to be honest Shahada and mutulu Malan avena, Allah subhanaw taala wish for you to turn, we wished for you to turn to him, and he wished that he would forgive you. But those who follow their lusts and desires want you to turn away from Allah a great deal with that ask a lot of agenda. And he is for him to reward those who put this event together and who will help distribute this lecture. And I would like to thank you also for being

01:05:47--> 01:06:25

patient. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept the sincere repentance of all the believers who hear this talk and decide to leave the hat on Allah, we asked you to give them strength and bring them closer to you, and make them from those whom you love. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he gives us a good end on this earth. And he makes the last thing we say in this dunya that Allah and to make the best day the day when we meet him while he is pleased with us and he enters us into Jenna while he is pleased with us. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to show us the truth as clear truth and make us follow it and show us the false with as clear falsehood and help us abstain from it. I'd like to

01:06:25--> 01:06:42

thank you for being an attentive audience. And I apologize for going so much over thank you for being patient and ask Allah to make us those who hear this speech and follow the best of it. And the best of what was said My apologies if I use any phrases that were hurtful or inappropriate, or sort of level about academic.

01:06:44--> 01:06:45

Mr. Amati Kumar

01:06:57--> 01:07:03

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Ambien mousseline.

01:07:07--> 01:07:12

We now want to look at the arguments of those who say that music is hollow. And

01:07:14--> 01:07:42

bear in mind that we mentioned how the Sahaba didn't differ on this issue, and that there was consensus amongst the Sahaba. And earlier, the earliest generations of scholars from the type of pain, that it is how often it is not permissible. But there are scholars who argue that it's halal, and mostly contemporary scholars argue that it's halal. And they base this ruling on mistakes of early scholars, as we're going to look at and Sharma.

01:07:43--> 01:08:21

And the fact that a mistaken minority saw that it was halal, it doesn't make it a legitimate opinion to see it. So if you have three or four people, they have an opinion that is halal. That doesn't mean this is a legitimate opinion, because for any opinion to be valid, or legitimate, it has to be backed up by some evidence, right? So you cannot just someone jump and just say some random words, unless there's, you know, some evidence that backs it up, then you can say, Okay, this is a legitimate argument. So I'm going to give you some examples of opinions of some real examples of opinions of scholars on different issues. And these are all not really legitimate, they don't have

01:08:22--> 01:08:22

good

01:08:24--> 01:08:32

evidence, clear evidence. There's some scholars that say, it's not permissible for you to see your mother's hair. So she has to be wearing Hijab in front of you.

01:08:33--> 01:08:35

Others have said dog meat is holla.

01:08:36--> 01:08:39

Others have said stealing from the kuffaar

01:08:40--> 01:08:42

is hella please, nobody makes a beer. Okay?

01:08:46--> 01:09:24

There's some scholars said that, you know, Isha prayer in the summer in the most northern European cities, or countries like, you know, in England, and maybe Finland, and so on. In summary, they shouldn't play Asia. They have this opinion, they based it on the fact that they can't see any of this, any of the signs that it's time for Asia, and therefore, they said it should be dropped during the summer. But in the winter, it can pressure. So these are all opinions, but they're invalid opinions because they don't have the the proof or the backing. So the fact that someone has an opinion doesn't make it valid unless they have strong support or strong proof. So let's look at some

01:09:24--> 01:09:33

of the the arguments presented by those who say that music is valid. And they tried to produce some logical arguments. They said that

01:09:34--> 01:09:59

they tried to mention some of the good things that come out of music, they say it's a useful tool, and an instrument of change. I mean, and you can feel free to disagree with me. I personally don't believe that this is generally true. And I'll explain what I mean by generally true, because you might have some famous singer who will sing a song about and bring awareness to some rare diseases, let's say kleinfelder syndrome, okay. And because he's popular

01:10:00--> 01:10:07

The word reaches so many people, he may bring some benefit by bringing awareness to this rare disease. But

01:10:08--> 01:10:50

generally, the positive messages fall upon deaf ears and the bad messages are obeyed. And generally, we cannot attribute generally that good messages come or good comes out of music. I mean, you might remember, some of you are young, but you might remember in the 90s, Mr. MC Hammer, came, came out with a song and he kept saying we need to pray, right, we need to pray just to make it today my secret, that would be it, right. But that song and the song was very popular, it was inherited number one, and just about everybody heard that, but did that song cause more people to start going to massage and churches around the country and more people to pray. I mean, there are no statistics,

01:10:50--> 01:11:09

but I seriously doubt that. So even when there is a good message, it falls upon deaf ears. But generally the messages that are followed degrading women, you know, and it's increasing in societies in and things of that sort. So if it is a weapon for messages, it's a counterproductive weapon. And much, not much good comes out of it.

01:11:10--> 01:11:48

And so someone might argue, well, you know, something good comes out of it. Like for example, when the the singers got together, and they sang, We Are the World and then they give money to people who are starving in Africa. So here, the you know, the song generated something that assisted they generated money. And, you know, the song itself didn't help what I mean, like so if, you know, if those people those singers go and start singing, We Are the World to the starving people, the singing itself won't help them. It was the money generated from the song. And so we can extend that argument to anything else. We can sell alcohol, then the money could save, you know, and eliminate

01:11:48--> 01:11:59

poverty, or we could sell drugs and then the money is what will help. So it's still even though they use money, the way and the medium they use to get the money is not something that's good.

01:12:02--> 01:12:39

And Okay, so then the other argument they give you so the first thing they tell you to do good things come out of it, you know, and the other argument they try to tell you satin for Salah always you say no turn that off? Turn on for Anatoly one hour, one hour. So what does that mean? It's based on the Hadith where 100 Allah Allah who complained to the province lm that the man decreases slightly when they go home and they sit with children, they talk about the dunya things of that sort. So the President said, um, tells him sir, you know, an hour for like that for the heart and then an hour like that. So the but handle of the long run, who the other hour was not engaging in

01:12:39--> 01:13:03

Haram. So you can't say, you know, I do hold on, but you know, sir, around, and then one hour of doing good for the sake of Allah, so you can't use it Hadeeth we're just, you know, something innocent is being done, a man decreases during that to say, well, that means you can do around just one hour here in one hour there. And it just wouldn't make sense to anyone that you know, one hour on one hour of, of Madonna, and it was not the comparison anyways.

01:13:05--> 01:13:42

So let me then another argument is that they tell you, these are the people who support music, and they say it's hot. And they tell you and I want you to listen to this carefully, that people have a natural inclination to music into liking music, it is something that's natural. And when you see a child there, you know, if a child hears music, they might start to dance. Without anyone specifically teaching that child dance moves, and two year old just started to walk, you start to bounce up and down when he hears musical notes. So they tell you that this is proof that it's halal, because it's something that's natural, and it's good, and therefore it's permissible. You see the

01:13:42--> 01:14:08

argument? And so, first of all, let me explain why people in voluntarily start to move to music, why they started to bounce or whatever, when they listen to music? The answer is that the part of the brain that appreciates music is the same part of the brain that is in charge of motor movements. And so there is a link for people to jump up and down and act crazy. Don't ask for the argument that it's natural.

01:14:09--> 01:14:13

There are many things that are natural, and they're also not permitted. Who can give me an example?

01:14:15--> 01:14:16

Something that's natural,

01:14:17--> 01:14:20

but it's very limited or not permitted? Yes, sir.

01:14:22--> 01:14:22

None.

01:14:24--> 01:14:25

I can't hear you a lot.

01:14:27--> 01:14:34

Okay, so I wanted something more like more basic with a brother said glancing at the opposite gender comes naturally.

01:14:36--> 01:14:37

Sorry about that.

01:14:39--> 01:14:48

All right, but how about sexual desire? And if you're saying, well, it's natural to like music, therefore it must be Haram. Well, it's natural to have sexual desire. Does that mean it's Hello then.

01:14:50--> 01:14:59

But it's restricted here. all avenues are closed except in the hallway. How about and I know I mean, my examples are always like strange or disgusting, but

01:15:01--> 01:15:11

relieving yourself that's natural. And once I'm an atheist kept arguing with me that the sexual desire is natural. So it's natural to relieve yourself of get up on the table, pull your pants down and go ahead.

01:15:13--> 01:15:21

And it was extreme because he was being harsh. So then he stopped. I said, not everything that's natural is is flouted than thought is in public. But

01:15:25--> 01:15:59

and there are other things that are natural that have restrictions on them eating and drinking, they're natural, but there's some things that are restricted. So like, you know, we can't eat pork, you can drink wine and things of that sort. So to argue that something that's natural is not a bad argument, you're saying well, one hour like this one or like that, you know, the comparison is incorrect. To say the will that good comes out of it is incorrect. And a lot of people always told you then that in the larger meal on the hippo Gemma. Oh, you always hear this, that Allah is beautiful family loves things that are beautiful. And so I remember I overheard one when I first

01:15:59--> 01:16:14

came to the US someone in the masjid. And he was saying, someone asked him his musicality and and you know, the uncle just said, those things that are beautiful. So if it's good music, then it's good, you know? And if it's bad, then it's Haram. So

01:16:19--> 01:16:58

the young they always tell you in CanAm theorem, the Shahada then it's haram if it if it arouses your like your lust or your desires, that means it's Haram. So and some contemporary scholars, when they asked about music, is it halal or haram? They say it's like poetry, the good of poetry is good, and it's bad is bad, or only if it fires up your desires, then it's bad. So Rama has a very powerful argument and logical response to that. He said that there is nothing in Islam where it is halal when you enter it. And then you can discover towards the end that it's actually hard on what does that mean? So I'm listening to a song. Let's say it's a country music song. The guy's talking about how

01:16:58--> 01:17:16

his car broke down all these things. And the word seemed very innocent. This man is having a rough day. And so I think, Okay, well, this is a Khaled song. He's not saying anything bad. So it's hot. So I'm enjoying it, tapping my toes. And then suddenly, towards the end, he starts to have a good day, he meets a woman, he fornicator he smokes a joint at the end of the song.

01:17:17--> 01:17:38

So that means now suddenly, I'm like, oh, he smoked the dirty stuff for Allah. Suddenly, the song became heroin for me. But it was haram since the beginning, but I didn't know. So I was allowed to go into something that was Haram. And I only discovered it at the end. Is there anything like this in Islam? Is there any type of meal that you can think of where it's harder for you to eat it? And at the end, you might discover that it's haram and just leave it.

01:17:40--> 01:17:55

So it you know why, because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, and Hello newbigin will obey the law is clear. And the harm is clear. There's nothing where you dove into something and then a year later, you look oh, that was hot.

01:17:57--> 01:18:01

such thing, and that makes it clear to you don't fall into it, and then you discover this.

01:18:02--> 01:18:04

But so

01:18:05--> 01:18:41

and sometimes people will tell you, you know, we just you know, this, this song has beautiful words alone. I remember, I was invited to someone's house for lunch. And you know, they're in control. It's their remote control. So, you know, all of them suddenly start to act like something in the incredible is coming on. It was some old geezer some Arab singer, and he was gonna sing this Arab song, and they just kept giving me the intro, you know, because they see, you know, my beard is above one inch. So that okay, this guy, maybe doesn't appreciate this stuff. So they kept trying to tell me this is a good guy. This guy, his words are beautiful. His words are beautiful. And the guy

01:18:41--> 01:19:10

was so ridiculous. All he started saying he kept just repeating in my heart is an old scar in my heart. Yeah, so now, this is beautiful. I can write something better than that if you like. So they just kept saying the words are beautiful, and I just looked at them if you are really people who are infatuated with beautiful words, what is the Quran doing on your shelf? And if you're someone who's totally in love with beautiful words, you would really love the Quran. You wouldn't be saying oh, this guy has an old scar. Yeah, surely you have an old scar on your face? I don't care. Anyone does this. But

01:19:11--> 01:19:28

others then they say as long as it's not too much and it doesn't get out of hand. How on earth do I gauge that? You know it Do you have any kind of timeframe or formula that I can use to gauge myself when music starts to get out of hand? And how will I know when it gets out of hand?

01:19:29--> 01:19:47

And it during the day I listen to 10 hours of music when I get to the 11th hour I start to shivering or something happens to me. So give me something realistic here or it's helpful for me in the early part of the day but then in the end it's haram so at night your friends turn on some news No, not Haram. I've already listened to eight hours please. It just

01:19:48--> 01:19:51

it doesn't make any sense. But

01:19:53--> 01:20:00

and I remember the one of the first articles I read you know many years ago about music described how an Imam in the masjid in the

01:20:00--> 01:20:08

Juma hotbar, he got up. And he began to mention this famous, I don't want to give away the country, but she was her name was Uncle Phil.

01:20:10--> 01:20:27

Okay, that was a joke so you know where she's from. And then he started to talk about this people being, you know, crazed with her songs, the people in the masjid in the gym or football who are not supposed to open their mouth, or speak or even tell each other to be quiet, they rushed up claiming the member to beat up the email.

01:20:28--> 01:20:46

And I remember as young men reading this and saying, it can't be any, this can't be something that will incite someone so much that he wants to beat one of the scholars of Islam in the house of Allah, because he attacked someone who's thinking about, you know, singing and, and love and all this stuff, he can't be then. So.

01:20:47--> 01:21:14

And the other thing is that you know, going overboard because the argument is, as long as it's not too much, it doesn't get out of hand, getting out of hand with music is not related to the direct number of hours that you listen to it, just like this people, you know, they want it to beat up the amount it was the day of Jamal, it's most likely that they didn't wake up and listen to any music on the day of Juma, but the effect stayed with them. So to give it the number of hours per day, that the effect will will leave you the next day. It's not true.

01:21:15--> 01:21:53

All right, so then other people thought they were clever, and they said that, you know, as long as the sounds you imitate, or hallel sounds, so he said, you know, you know, a bird makes some sound and I repeat the same sound with the flute so Mashallah, it's hard now. And, and so therefore, they will, you know, imitate bird songs, something they'll slam books in that slot, you know, slap their chest and beat or just things like that to make the sounds and but I can go even further than that, I can suggest that we can take any human speech. And just to make things worse, let's take an islamic speech. And then we're going to go in with with the computer, and we're going to isolate

01:21:53--> 01:22:13

different pitches and different tones from this man's voice, the high pitches, the low points of pitch pitches, and then we're going to arrange them in a musical scale. And then we can take them and arrange them in any way to make any song that you want from someone's voice. You can now do that with today's technology. So does that make it harder?

01:22:14--> 01:22:39

Doesn't make it harder. So the scholars say imitating the sounds of instruments is not permissible either. So it's okay. Well, we don't have any musical instruments. But 100 law we have brother husband's a big guy, he sounds just like a tuba. And we have a brother who is so salty sounds like the piano, and then the everybody starts making sounds, and then I sing over it. And that's how that we're imitating the sounds of instruments and their sounds are forbidden.

01:22:40--> 01:22:52

Perhaps you may know this song called Don't worry, be happy. Those of you who are familiar with that song will probably know that there's not a single musical instrument in that song. How many people did not know that?

01:22:54--> 01:22:59

Okay, so some people didn't notice that, because it sounds like a musical instrument, but it was all done with the people's mouth.

01:23:01--> 01:23:32

And then of course, generally the any wind or meaning instrument that you blow into any string and any percussion instrument is haram. And any combination of that like the piano you strike, but then there's a string that is struck, or anything that imitates or replaces those sounds, even if it was initially a lot of sound, you mixed it up and became a haram song. Some people then when you ask them is music halaal they compare it to instances in which the Sahaba sang.

01:23:33--> 01:23:55

This is an unbelievably unfair, so yeah, someone is music hella. A young man asked to share his music Khaled. What is he thinking? He's thinking MTV VH one what have you. And the chef's was written by the sahaabah sang when they were building the ditch digging the ditch of conduct they were singing as they were working. And they sang Paula Albert ralina when the Prophet solo seldom came from

01:23:56--> 01:24:07

the book, the book, so this is really dishonest and it's unfair. And shuffle, shuffle, even even Joseph anahola he said, in the Mufti when I learned

01:24:08--> 01:24:11

that the Mufti and the scholar is like a doctor

01:24:12--> 01:24:49

kubla activador la Yes, l and l married YSL, Multan and Maria and Maria. So it says that before he writes the the like the prescription or the medicine or the remedy, he asked about the sick person, he asked about him, and he asked about which country he comes from, and he bases that the concoction he makes is based on that. So he's saying the Mufti is the same way. So when someone comes and asked about, you know, what is prevalent today, like in music in you know, MTV, I then you tell him well, the companion sign when they were building, the digging the ditch, it's not a fair comparison. And it's very dishonest.

01:24:51--> 01:24:59

You can't compare that, you know, with MTV, with the clothing with the words with the instruments with the women, and then you compare it to men who

01:25:00--> 01:25:06

didn't use any instruments. And they were not saying any words that were calling did something that was Haram. It's not a fair comparison.

01:25:07--> 01:25:44

And of course, some of them and we don't want to waste too much time with this group. They said singing is a form of worship. And you know, and he will be allowed through this and so on. So him in favor of Mr. Lead, he tells them how strange what type of faith and what type of religion what what type of light, what type of insight and guidance and knowledge can be gained from listening to tuneful voice verses and music in which most of the said is how long? And he continues saying, How can anyone who has the least amount of insight and faith in his heart, draw near to Allah and increase his faith by enjoying something which is hated by him, meaning hated by Allah, just doesn't

01:25:44--> 01:26:00

make any sense. So we won't waste time with that. So now we go to now these people that have the Hadith also, the people who say music is hot, so they have this Howdy. And they say, this is proof that music is hella, so look at the ad, and see how if it supports that argument or not.

01:26:02--> 01:26:02

The law

01:26:04--> 01:26:45

says Obama entered upon her on the day of eight, the owner decided, and she had two young girls with her who were singing, the verses that ansara had said on the day of wrath, which is like a like a battle in war. So we'll work with the law entered, and he said, I mean, his model shape one, the beta Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam are the musical instruments were like the pipe of the shape on in the house of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And the problem he had turned away from them now he turned around, and he said, leave them alone. Oh, Booker, for every nation has its aid. And this is our aid the people of Islam. So can you see now how they are saying this? Hadith says music is

01:26:45--> 01:26:51

haram? They say oh, well, it's allowed the person allowed them. So that's proof that it's something that's not

01:26:52--> 01:27:30

okay. Then the problem is that this had it for them. The problem is that this hadn't, it's actually proven that it's hard. It's not any proof that it's hella, look at the points. First of all, let's look at the age of the girls because the the agenda in Arabic has two meanings. It's either a young girl who has not reached the age of puberty, or it's a servant girl. She can be an older girl, but she's still a God, and she's a servant girl. So which one is the correct one here is here just isn't that just their servants, girls any age, or the young girls who haven't reached the age of puberty? And the answer the young girls who haven't reached the age of puberty, because it just says there

01:27:30--> 01:28:01

were girls from the unsub helpers, so they couldn't have been a slave girls are serving, obviously from the onset. So that means they were young girls. So they're young girls. And now we will look at the words the words that they're using, they were from the days of, so they were talking about war and heroics of war, nothing corrupting nothing about your eyes, and your hair and all that stuff. And then there was no there were no percussion or string instruments. So to compare it with MTV, in today's music, it's a crime. And it was halaal for them

01:28:02--> 01:28:21

was young at the time, it was hard for these young girls to do that. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam turned away from them. So someone might, meaning he wasn't paying attention to them also. So someone might ask them well, why was he even in the same room? Who can answer that I was in the same room.

01:28:24--> 01:28:27

Okay, close but there's another reason why was in the same room.

01:28:29--> 01:28:56

It was only one room. The room of ice rodilla was six feet by six feet, with walls of mud, mud and palm stocks. And a ceiling that sometimes with leakin was had live palm leaves and you know, like a leather hide over it to prevent the rain from coming in one room is the house, you know, and I live in these palaces and like I want to be alone. There's two people in the room. Big living room. I need some me time Hello.

01:28:57--> 01:28:59

Anyways, so

01:29:01--> 01:29:40

So I sort of dilemma and another thing was that she was young. And it was never transmitted from her any hobbies or anything after she reached the age of puberty except condemnation of singing. Everything we heard from Isla de la Anna, after that, after she matured, was condemned condemnation of singing. We look at this is her son's brother, her brother's son of one and caused him to Mohammed and she taught him he gained his knowledge from her. And he used to condemn singing and said that is not allowed to listen to it. So this is the student of eyeshadow de la vida. This is proof then that you only did that was permissible for her. They were young and then after that she

01:29:40--> 01:29:59

never said anything except condemning music. I will look rodilla on her when he comes in very important. He calls it the flute of the shape on the instrument of the shape. And so the first question is where do you think he got this name from? Did he make it up? That's the first thing and was it the like the

01:30:00--> 01:30:08

Like the norm for Abu Bakar, to suggest something like that, to make up something like that in front of the Prophet. So I said no. So that's the first thing. The second thing.

01:30:09--> 01:30:13

So, so, so most likely he was aware of this. And

01:30:15--> 01:30:51

he wouldn't tell off, meaning in like, you know, reprimand, he wouldn't reprimand anyone in front of the profits or loss at them, unless he knew that that was wrong. So if he enters something hallowed is happening in front of them, he's not going to reprimand that person. they've met the fact that he came in and he said that he knew this was something that was wrong, and it was happening in front of them, and he said it. But the exception was made for the day of eight. So again, what kind of the comparison you're saying, Are you talking about the day of eight, and now you're listening to it every single day of the year. So even the comparison is incorrect. This was an exception, the

01:30:51--> 01:30:57

President said, leave an overkill for today's a day over eight that was the exception. And also,

01:30:59--> 01:31:11

the Hadith also shows that it was not the habit of the prophet SAW Selim and his companions to gather and to listen to singing proof was how a worker reacted. I mean, if they were listening to music all the time you think obaku would react like that? He wouldn't.

01:31:13--> 01:31:54

Even the famous comments on this thing amazed, amazed that you quote as evidence for allowing listening to sophisticated songs, imagine even even a theme, same sophisticated thought songs and his time. So what if he hears our songs now? He, he said the report which we have mentioned about how two young girls were below the age of puberty, saying to a young woman on the day of age, some verses of Arab poetry about bravery in war and other noble characteristics. How can you compare this to that? So this Hadith, then is far for being evidence that it is hella. So then some other evidences that they use. Listen to this and tell me if this sounds like evidence that music is

01:31:54--> 01:31:57

Hello. It was narrated that NASA

01:31:58--> 01:32:35

mother, the freed servant of Abdullah Ahmad alone, he said, even if I'm not heard a woodwind instrument, or some kind of flute or instrument that you blow into, and he put his fingers in his ears, and he kept away from that path. So he said to me, because they were walking together. So he heard someone over there playing the flute, he plugged his ears. He said to me, yeah, not that can you hear anything? This is after a while. So I said, No. So then he took his fingers away from his ears and said, I was with the prophets of Allah who said them, and he heard something like this like a shepherd or someone playing a flute. And he did the same thing for Salaam did the same thing and

01:32:35--> 01:33:09

then he asked him, What, can you hear it anymore? No, no, I said no. So he unplugged his ears. So and this is the Hadith in the book of Allah. Allah. So the argument they say is that he didn't instruct him to put his fingers in his ears. The Prophet said, lamp plugged his ears, but he didn't say plug your ears of nama. Blood. He didn't say plug your ears. So that means that if it was Haram, and so on, it would have been he would have told him to plug his ears and if not, he would have told NASA to plug his ears. But anyone besides Mohammed, can you tell us

01:33:10--> 01:33:14

why this hadith is not proof that music is halal?

01:33:17--> 01:33:18

Why is it not proof that it's harder?

01:33:21--> 01:33:22

Because

01:33:23--> 01:33:30

Yeah, and he shuffled aside, even taymiyah. He mentioned how there's a difference between hearing and listening,

01:33:31--> 01:34:02

hearing and listening. What was it like when you go to a store, you want to buy something? And you can hear music? You know, but are you just there to purchase whatever you want, and then you're going to leave. You're not sitting there enjoying it and reminiscing in your life. This is so sweet. You're just listening. You just hear it. Okay? So that means this the mechanical action of the sound waves hitting into your ears, but it's not registering with you. The profits that I sent him didn't want to do the least case, which is just to hear the heart of

01:34:03--> 01:34:39

the lease case he didn't want to do. That's why he plugged his ears, but if he was hearing, he could just hear it, but he wasn't listening to it. Everyone understand the difference? And even tamer hemella he compares like someone who is the Quran is being played, but he is not even his intention is not to listen to the Quran and he is not listening to it. He just hears it. Does he get reward for just hearing it? No. But if he's listening to it, he gets a reward. And it says the opposite with music. If you're listening to it, then it's blameworthy or if you get a sin, but if you just hear it, that's it's different.

01:34:41--> 01:34:58

And that's why when you when you enter a restaurant, just as a general advice to the brothers, I've always seen that brothers when they go into a restaurant, I'll tell you generally restaurant owners, they hate bearded brothers. You know why? Because we're unbelievably rude when we tell them to lower the music. We just brothers

01:35:00--> 01:35:30

Lower music What's wrong with you? Why don't you just tell them look we have in the meeting or we're discussing some issues we can't hear ourselves think because it could you lower it little brothers make an issue and then there's some resonance that we go the minute this is coming in with our beards and stuff like this they hate us because they know they see this bad behavior from us please be aware of that not misbehave like that with people and ask them in a nice way you don't have to from this is from um you know, this is me Coronavirus stuffing if they were chopping the head off, relax, relax a little bit.

01:35:31--> 01:36:14

So that the headache we mentioned in Bukhara, which is also Hades, and I'll start to wrap up and Shawn love me to go faster. The problem is that lamb said there will be in my own my people who make halaal or allow fornication, adultery, and silk and wine and musical instruments. They make them Hello, it means they're hot on the first attempt by people who say music is Khaled, they started to attack this hadith and accused of being weak because and this is based on a mistake that has been made. And if it hasn't, it was him Allah is a great scholar, but he was not his his. His field of expertise was not Heidi. And he is beset by him or about him by other scholars that he often Eric

01:36:14--> 01:36:55

made mistakes and his critical assessment of the degrees of integration and the conditions of the narratives. So even having misunderstood the way it was narrated that he thought that there was a break in the chain, but all the scholars of Hadith, they mentioned that it is for him and it has been the same habit has been narrated through nine different place from nine different places and nine different times. And so basically it is not weak. And it has been he has been refuted extensively in many books and most famously by the scholar masala. So the argument that decided this week is not it's a weak argument. Okay. So then they still tried to hang on to this hadith and find

01:36:55--> 01:36:56

some way out. They said

01:36:57--> 01:37:10

that this Hadith, the things in this hadith before, which were the fornication, the silk, and the wine and the music, they said these things are haram because they're combined together.

01:37:12--> 01:37:12

You see?

01:37:13--> 01:37:42

And it's so music is not haram unless it's accompanied with alcohol and Zina and silk. So I wonder what if it music is involved with alcohol and Xena and polyester? What happens then? So they're claiming their own music is only one when you combine it with these three, and the scholars like Ashoka mama he says that that would mean Zina is not haram unless it's accompanied by the other three as well.

01:37:43--> 01:37:52

What does it mean? Yes, the Hindu and these things are Haram. You see. And then he mentions on the same kind of scale and arguments saying in the Quran,

01:37:53--> 01:37:59

where Allah Subhana Allah says in the whole canon law, you will be loving, whether you hug Allah.

01:38:00--> 01:38:28

Allah says, He used to not believe in Allah the Most Great, and he urged not the feeding of the poor. So then show Kenny, some Allah says this, this would mean that it's not haram to disbelieve in Allah as long as you're not encouraging someone to not feed the poor, you see, so it doesn't make any sense. The argument doesn't hold any water. Pipe one more Howdy. They said, this is proof that music is hella this hard. It goes like this.

01:38:30--> 01:38:48

He says he never heard from his grandfather, that a woman said, Oh prophet of Allah, I have vowed to strike up on the door. And everyone know what a dose is. Kind of looks like a tambourine but it doesn't have the rattles. And basically, it's like an animal skin that's stretched over the stick. That's, that's the

01:38:50--> 01:39:06

he said I vowed to strike the dose in your presence, and the process will have responded to her fulfill your vow. Okay. So now, this hudy you can understand that when you look at it, in another narration that explains it in more detail. This is the notion of autonomy.

01:39:08--> 01:39:24

He says, Buddha said Allah's Messenger left for one of his expeditions, and upon his return, a black servant girl came to him saying or messenger of Allah, I vowed that if law returned you safely, I would beat the dog and sing in your presence.

01:39:26--> 01:39:49

So the profits of the long stem tells her in Quintin Haggerty, fuck Ruby, we're in law, fella, that if you have made the vow, then beat the door. And if not, then don't what does it mean? If not, meaning if you didn't vow, then don't do it. So this is saying this is proof that it's permissible. So now let's see you have to go into it in detail. The first thing

01:39:50--> 01:40:00

well, the rest of the story is she began to beat the door. And then a worker entered and she kept beating and Holly entered she can beat him with my energy kept beating. When I entered she made me throw it underneath her and she

01:40:00--> 01:40:00

sat on it.

01:40:01--> 01:40:42

And then the prophets of Allah Salaam said initiative on their heartwarming karma, whether the shaytan is afraid of you or Omar. So isn't it interesting how the shaitaan is brought up suddenly in Japan is mentioned. So you see, first of all, because usually the dude is on occasions like eight weddings. So why is she beating the Duke on this occasion, the problem is returning safely. The scholars say, the safe return of the prophets, I said them is greater than eight, who would disagree with that. And if a prophet of Allah is killed, that's the biggest calamity possible. So if the item comes safely returned safely from battle is greater than eight. That's why she wanted to beat the

01:40:42--> 01:41:05

dog on that day. The second thing we could see she was a servant girl, because she was described as a black servant girl. And the servants were generally less restricted in dress and in their manners or mannerisms, because of like, the nature of the type of work so that the servant girl and when you study, Phil, you know, he doesn't have to cover as much as the, you know, the free woman as they say.

01:41:06--> 01:41:48

The other thing is that she vowed I mean, everyone knows what a bow is, right? And he says, I'll let If this happens, I will Oh, it's like a promise to love this happens. I'm going to do this. she vowed to do something Helen for her. You say hello for her this about yet? Look what the process is sort of sit there in Quintanilla. 34 gravy, we're in a fella that if if you didn't vote, don't do it. Why? It shows that it's still preferable for you to not do it, it's still preferable that you don't do it if you didn't involve, but since you've already promised a lot, okay. And then she stopped when Obama came and the president and he said the shutdown is afraid of if there wasn't a

01:41:48--> 01:41:53

link between and it's generally these types of Mullah handshape and porcelain wouldn't have said that.

01:41:54--> 01:41:54

Okay.

01:41:55--> 01:41:56

But

01:41:57--> 01:42:25

otherwise, I was going to read to you the Hadith that are authentic because we only mentioned you know a few, but there are actually many a hadith are authentic and there is no weakness in them. Talking about music in books of Buhari and books of women imagine even humble and others but we're running out of time. So I will skip that. Perhaps maybe we can put up these notes on our website, maybe shmotkin announcer website, I'll put the notes up so you can use them.

01:42:27--> 01:42:32

But very quickly, the permissible times are in times of jihad,

01:42:34--> 01:43:11

right times of jihad eight and weddings, the arrival of like an important personality like when the President said them they Seinfeld Albert ralina when he came back from the book during travel as we mentioned the hadith of Angelica when he was singing travel, you know when you're lonely they say also you can sing to yourself so suddenly there's a beam of light on your you start singing and and everybody starts dancing around you like now or when you have a baby or a child you're trying to put them to sleep You can sing for the child but then the scholars say that you know also fits to increase spiritual consciousness engage in pious activities salah and charity and so on. But they

01:43:11--> 01:43:50

say do it in moderation it shouldn't. And in proper decorum as well it doesn't take over the life of the Muslims now it is so and so is singing and so on and so is coming it shouldn't ever take over their life like that. And but all this that we're talking about all these occasions that is permissible, this has no musical instruments, no sweet boys are acting Oh, sweeten, and you know, nice and make the girls go crazy. And all these things while they're singing about taco and lowering the case. We see now it's going overboard. So and then it's like so it has to be no forbidding instruments. And it has to not you know overtly take the Muslim in the focus and their minds focus

01:43:50--> 01:43:52

and it should not be recited by women.

01:43:53--> 01:44:25

Or it or it should also not include haram or obscene speech. They shouldn't resemble the tunes of the people of immorality or promiscuity, meaning that you can't get a funky beat from one of the rappers right and then put you know, I got a pray and talk about all these violent prayer things you want to do. You already took it resembles now the music of the AI goes viral people so it wouldn't be permissible and you can't use vocal effects that sound like musical instruments. And you can't get this high from it. And

01:44:27--> 01:44:28

I think we're done.

01:44:29--> 01:44:34

So article 100 100 cash on the landscape. Good excellent Mubarak, Allah Mohammed

01:44:35--> 01:44:36

Redmayne

01:44:37--> 01:44:38

and Al

01:44:42--> 01:44:44

Salam when it comes to them, our machines

01:44:45--> 01:44:52

and our machines with instruments Hello, the with instruments I have not read none.

01:44:53--> 01:45:00

I've not seen or read any scholar that said that. The instruments themselves are how long and I've not seen any clear

01:45:00--> 01:45:38

Proof or even a weak proof that for men to use the dye is permissible. On the contrary, she has only been telling me it says for men to use the defensing, it means they resemble women. And that's why we said the women were called mocha, nothing that effeminate men, because this didn't exist for men to beat the dead. So I have not seen any, any kind of evidence that men can beat on any instrument. So the machines are halon. Yes, if they're sung by men about good things, they don't, you know, take over your life, and they're not accompanied with any musical instrument, a group of brothers are planning to start a new sheet group, what are your advice? What's your advice to them?

01:45:39--> 01:45:50

Don't get fresh and and good, old, sweetened, overdo that sweet stuff? Just, you know, just sing it, no instruments, anything like that? That's the answer. London's best.

01:45:51--> 01:46:27

This is if I'm in a music band, and I'm really attached to it, the people the feeling and so on, how can I free myself from this rock band, so that now I can become a better Muslim and get closer to Allah. One, one immediate advice I can give you is you need to, you know, remove yourself very far away from these people, not even to hang around for anything not related to music, stay away. And I know a lot of brothers who are lead singers in bands and so forth. The absolutely stayed away and just never saw those people. And there's a lot of evidence to that, that the first thing you need to do is change your environment. As we know from the Hadith of the man who killed 100, the first piece

01:46:27--> 01:46:33

of advice given to him was to move to the New City. This is just in short and alone as best.

01:46:35--> 01:46:37

I know this name would come up.

01:46:38--> 01:47:04

So the so called machines such as blank, blank, or blank was saying the topics of Islam however they come complying with rules and machines. Are they complying with the rules of Machito? They're using Islam as a facade. And is it really they're foreigners in the Muslim in reality, they are foreigners in the Muslim world. I mean, well, it We live in a time if a musician says a word, it reaches more ears than the greatest scholar in the room. This is the sad thing. So but

01:47:06--> 01:47:32

they what they're doing if they're using instruments again, if it's not, right, if they're using instruments, then they just like we said sounding like these people. And the difference is just you know, in the end, I prayed and in the end, he smoked a joint. That's the only difference. And aloneness best is a diff permissible for a woman only can men listen to the sheet that has the sound in it. The depth is permissible for a woman only as I as I just mentioned. So I think we just answered that.

01:47:34--> 01:47:55

And I like I said, I haven't seen any evidence that the men can use it. Sometimes we hear that the dose is an allowed instrument how valid this opinion for women it is, is also permissible impermissible to listen to machines with instruments. Yes, it is impermissible to listen to them. Can we listen to music that reminds us of Allah and His creation example that guy again?

01:47:56--> 01:48:19

Or poetry that has messages? Islamic messages, poetry? This has absolutely nothing? No, no scholars have said the poetry is like messages ever have said their Hara is permissible? The minute you start to recite that poetry and beat some other instrument, then it becomes impermissible. Even if the guy claims to be reminding you to come back to Allah while he's playing his electric guitar. No.

01:48:21--> 01:48:59

Oh, yeah. I mean, a lot of stuff, especially young people, they go overboard when a scholar says, you know, music is halal. They attack him and they discredit his Deen and his and his knowledge. No, don't do that. Okay, we can mention some of our great and beloved scholars who have passed away and were alive today who had made mistakes in their rulings and in their fatawa. Whenever discredited every other good thing they did because of one mistake. So if you know, Shadow qaradawi, for example, he says, you know, music is hollow or anything like that you don't attack the chef's like that. So be aware of that.

01:49:00--> 01:49:03

Should we take the course music in college if it's required?

01:49:04--> 01:49:22

I'm sure that people have dealt with this issue before? I don't know. I'm not able to answer this, because I don't know how stringent and how insistent upon you attending this course the college would be there's nothing else that you can take. I mean, if they insist on you taking music, take something else like dance. I'm just kidding. But

01:49:23--> 01:49:24

But

01:49:25--> 01:49:59
