Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “When one of you awakes in the morning for fasting, then he should not use obscene language or behave ignorantly. If anyone slanders him or tries to argue with him, he should say: Indeed, I am fasting! Indeed, I am fasting!”
I have been updating (4 updates) on marriage for a while now. In this context is a very volatile concept of "Muta". Mutah as opposed to Nikah is temporary marriage in which period of marriage is fixed by agreement. No formality of talaaq for termination is required. Time-limit is the limit itself. Fyzee says that the old Arabian custom of Muta was justified as being useful in times of war and travels. But Prophet Muhammad (saw) prohibited it and later on Caliph Umar suppressed it ruthlessly. Among the Shias themselves, only Ithna Ashari School recognised it, and it is rejected by every other Muslim School. Critics often term Muta as a "marriage for pleasure" and it is a "legalised prostitution". Though the two are similar, it must, however, be appreciated that in prostitution neither the child so born is legitimate nor is entitled to inherit from the father BUt the child born of Muta is termed legitimate and capable of inheriting from the father. (See Muslim Law; P 61)
Over the centuries, many Ulama have cautioned the Believers about the dangers of listening to music. Whilst many Muslims have listened, others have chosen to dismiss these warnings and advices.
I intend to discuss the harms of music on the Believer’s body, heart, mind and soul, using reasoning from The Noble Quran and Science. For those brothers and sisters who are still listening to music, I urge you to read on and to take heed to what is being said.
Firstly, we need to understand that Islam is a way of life. The Believer’s heart radiates the noor of Iman as he submits himself to the commands of Allah Ta’ala. Allah Ta’ala is All Wise and All Knowing. He has sent us the Noble Quran and the Sunnah of our beloved Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam as guidelines for us to live by. It is through the wisdom of Allah Ta’ala that mankind has been either permitted to or forbidden from carrying out certain actions. Mankind has been blessed with a choice to either comply or digress from the orders of The Most Merciful; of which both paths carry consequences. Our knowledge is limited, therefore it would be best to follow the laws of Allah Ta’ala and the guidance of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, so that we may please Allah Ta’ala and attain Jannah.
We begin by looking at music from an Islamic point of view. Cursed is that person who purchases the music, even if he does not listen to it. I urge the parents and caregivers in the homes to be strict with your subordinates and family members regarding music. Parents need to understand that through financing the haram of music in any form, they may be punished by the Almighty. Allah Ta’ala has said in the Noble Quran :
“And of mankind is he who purchases idle talk (Lahw Al Hadeeth) to mislead from the path of Allah without knowledge, and takes it by way of mockery. For such there will be a humiliating torment.” - Quran (31:6)
Furthermore Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam has forbade the listening to music as it corrupts the believer. Allah Ta’ala has also mentioned in the Noble Quran that his curse is upon those who deviate from Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam’s orders:
“And let those beware who oppose the Messenger’s commandment, lest some fitnah should befall them or a painful torment be inflicted on them.”- Quran (24:63)
Music rusts the heart of the believer and in turn, breeds hypocrisy. Music is highly suggestive on both conscious and subconscious levels. An example is that of ballads (love songs), which trick the listener into believing that he cannot live without the object of his affection. Furthermore the songs portray the illusion that the desired individual is perfect and that life is not worth living without her affection. This creates kufr and shirk, as none is perfect but Allah Ta’ala. We have not been given permission by Allah Ta’ala to decide when our lives should end. Only upon evaluating the lyrics to many of these songs, do we realise the sins that we commit in listening to them.
Science has also proven that music has detrimental effects upon the listener. It has been shown to alter the moods of the listeners. It bypasses the reasoning centre of the brain and evokes feelings in the individual. Tolerance to music develops over time, and the listener requires a longer duration of listening time or an increase in pace. The music acts as a tool serving the goals of Shaytaan, drawing people into sin and ultimately Jahannam. Ballads have been known to induce a state of relaxation, however this is short lived. Prolonged exposure to this may induce a sense of depression or melancholy. In the case of rock or pop, the increased pace, intensity, high volume and choice of lyrics have been associated with aggression, violence and even suicide.
Music appeals to the carnal and base desires of human beings. Drugs, alcohol and illicit relationships are promoted, whilst honesty and religion are dismissed. This in turn leads to people acting upon impulse and without regard for consequences. It destroys the moral values of young men and women by destroying their modesty and chastity from a young age. Arguments have been put forward that music is beneficial. However, it has been compared to the likes of wine and gambling. In small doses, there is a temporary superficial benefit of calm, but the harms of music far outweigh the benefits. Music is addictive and detrimental., therefore it is forbidden.
I believe that the underlying cause of the destruction of this generation is through its addiction to music.
The western media portrays the lives of musicians and performers as being glamorous and substantial. But how many times have we seen in the media, that the performers adopt distasteful habits, are arrested, abuse others, end up in prison or experience degrading deaths? Others become the objects of great controversy and hatred by their once-so-called ‘fans’. Why? Because Allah Ta’ala has cursed those who choose to indulge in this sin.
After dissecting the horrible truth about music dear brothers and sisters, I urge you to stop listening to this tool of Shaytaan. Make taubah. Recite excessive Istigfaar and adopt the Sunnah of our beloved Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Make a firm resolution to give up this abhorred habit. Giving up music IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE. It can be done. It has been done. Shaytaan has no hope in the mercy of Allah Ta’ala whereas, we as Muslims have hope in the Most Merciful. Replace the music with beautiful recordings of the glorious Quran Karim and taste these words with your soul. Feel the words of Quran on your lips and listen to it as you read out aloud. It shall surely stir your soul in a pleasant manner and leave you satisfied.

I love Ramadan because that kid who never prays, prays. That girl who never covers, covers. That guy who never fasts, fasts. Even if its just for a month, at least these "types" of people tasted the "sweetness of faith" just for one month. And perhaps months later down in life, if their life ever becomes bitter, they will refer back to Ramadan and yearn for that same "sweetness" they sampled just that one month. You call them "Only Ramadan Muslims" but I call them "Muslims who may only need Ramadan to change".·
On the authority of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say, “Whoso- ever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” It was related by Muslim.

Virtues of Ramadan " Oh Believers ! Be alert ! An auspicious month is about to dawn up on you , whose greatness and sanctity is not easy to comprehend. There comes to you a magnificent month, a blessed month, a month wherein is a night (Laylat al-Qadr) which is better than thousand months. Almighty Allah has made it's Fast's compulsory upon you, and the standing in its nights (Tarraweeh) a means of obtaining countless blessing's. Whoever sincerely makes an effort to seek the nearness of Allah in it, is like a person who has offered seventy obligatory deeds in other months. It is a month of patience, and the reward of patience is Paradise. It is a month to show compassion to others. In it sustenance is increased. In this month the doors of Paradise are opened and the doors of Hell are barred (shut). Fasting is a shield against the fire of Hell. Hence it is important for the one who is fasting to abstain from uttering anything shameful or doing anything based on ignorance. If anyone tries to enter into a quarrel with him or swears him he should twice say " I am fasting. " The Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam said : "I swear on Him in whose Hands is my life ! The breath emanating from the mouth of the observer of fasts is more beloved to Allah than the fragrance of musk. The observer of fasts abstains from eating and drinking, and from all sensual pleasures for My(Allah's) sake. Fasting is for Me(Allah) and I alone shall give its rewards. ~fardeena~
