Music: The Wisdom Behind Its Prohibition

Image result for music notes “From among the artful machinations and entrapments of Allaah’s enemy [Satan], with which he has snared those possessing little good sense, knowledge and deen [faith], and by which he has stalked the hearts of the false and ignorant people, there is the listening to whistling, wailing, handclapping and song to the accompaniment of forbidden [musical] instruments. Such things block the Qur'aan from people’s hearts and make them devoted to sin and disobedience. For song (to musical accompaniment) is the Qur'aan of Ash-Shaytaan (Satan). It is a dense veil and barrier, preventing nearness to Ar-Rahmaan! (Allaah) By way of such song, Satan deceives vain souls, making it appear pleasing to them through his cunning appeal to their vanities. He insidiously whispers false, specious arguments suggesting the’ goodness’ in song. These arguments are accepted, and as a result, the Qur'aan becomes an object of neglect and abandonment.”
