nasheeds - allowed or not?
Posted 05 February 2006 - 10:46 PM
i wanted to ask if listening to nasheeds is ok for us? some nasheed singers like sami yusuf etc have a lot of music in it and that isn't allowed.
im not sure on this. some people say that u shouldn't listen to it, full stop, but some say it is ok as long as there's no music in it (which sounds reasonable).
does anybody here listen to nasheeds?

Yes I listen to nasheeds but only the kinds with voice or with a duff. nothing else.
we've discussed this here many times, just type in Nasheed, Music or Instruments in the search button and you will find your answer inshallah. :wink:

Here is the opinion of the Noble Shaykh Nasur-deen Al Albani, [font=Verdana:fa744cb9c4]Rahimahullah[/font:fa744cb9c4] on Nasheeds:
[marq=left:fa744cb9c4]Question: What is the ruling on the nasheeds (songs) that are circulating amongst many of the
youth and which they call "Islaamic nasheeds?"
[[font=Times New Roman:fa744cb9c4]Answer:
If these nasheeds possess Islaamic meanings, and there aren't any stringed or musical
instruments accompanying them, such as the Duff, the drum and its types, then there is no problem
with it. However, an important condition to its permissibility must be clarified. And it is that they
must be free of anything that opposes the Religion, such as going to extremes and its sorts.
Also, there is another condition. And it is that it must not be taken as a (habitual) practice. This is
since it turns those who (constantly) listen to it away from reciting the Qur'aan, which the authentic
Sunnah of the Prophet encourages. Likewise, it turns them away from seeking beneficial knowledge
and calling towards Allaah (i.e. da'wah), the One free of all defects. As for using the duff with the
nasheed, then it is permissible for the women when it occurs (solely) amongst them, apart from the
men. And it is permissible during the time of 'Eed and marriage only.[/font:fa744cb9c4]
