Ask The Imam Question and Answer

66 Is it a sin or Haraam to go to the cinema or listen to music?
This depends on the context of what is being listened too or watched. But the general environment of the cinema is prohibited from the view of Islamic law (Shariah).

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) (Qawali, 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 they 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 Iman is prohibited. This is majority of the current bollywood music bhangra or the English hip-hop, rap and other music forms that have very non-Islamic themes and lyrics. At times these music tracks contradict the basic belief in Allah (S.W.T) and his rules that we believe in as Muslims.
