Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1020 I want to know about music which is used in Sufi gatherings. If the Prophet (PBUH) has prohibited music then why is it used especially latest musical instruments? Why did Prophet (PBUH) said people of end times will make music Halal?
The term music is very open, if we use this as educational or that music with which we praise Allah (S.W.T) and His Beloved Rasool (S.A.W) (e.g. Qawaali, Naat’s) then that is permissible. (It is also important to note that there are certain qawalis available today which portray Islam but have Indian type film themes, these are not allowed to be listen to, as the listeners concentration is directed more towards the song, rather than the Islamic words).

Do remember that any music that drives you away from your beliefs and weakens your Imaan is prohibited.
