Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1237 Why is music Haram? I pray, read the Quran and practice Islam to the best of my ability. I am also making up my Qaza Namaaz and missed fasts. However, I feel like my friends don't like me and I'm always in a bad mood therefore I listen to music to calm me down and take my mind off things. I don't gossip, backbite or engage with boys anymore and overall try to avoid sin, so is it ok if I occasionally listen to music? If no, why?
Mashallah it is nice to hear that you have turned your life around and focusing your efforts on pleasing Allah (S.W.T). May Allah (S.W.T) bless you further and make it easy for you and change the thinking of your friends to do good too. (Ameen).

As for your question regarding the validity of listening to music, this question has already been answered. Please refer to Question 66.
