ARE NASHEED SHOWS, NASHEED TOURS, NASHEED LAUNCHES, ETC PERMISSIBLE?

 Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur’aan Majeed:

“They (the Mu’mineen) do not attend zoor. And when they pass by futility, they pass by with dignity.” (Surah Furqaan, Aayat 72)

Imaam Abu Bakr Jassaas, commenting on this aayat said: “It has been narrated from Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahmatullah alayh) that az-zoor is singing.” (Ahkaamul Qur’aan)

 


Hadhrat Ali (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrated that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “I have been sent (by Allah) to destroy musical instruments…...The earning of a male singer and a female singer is haraam. The earning of zina is haraam. It is incumbent on Allah not to allow a body nourished by haraam, entry into Jannat.” (Kaf-fur Ruaa’)

Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Listening to music and singing are sinful. Sitting at such gatherings is fisq (immoral transgression). Deriving pleasure from it is kufr.”(Nailul Autaar)

Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu Anhu) was invited to a Walimah (marriage feast). When he arrived at the house, he heard singing. He halted at the door. He was asked: Why have you halted?’

He replied: “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say: ‘He who increases the number of a crowd is of them. He who is pleased with an act of the people is a partner in its commission.”

(Al-Mataalibul Aaliyah as well as other kitaabs)

Hadhrat Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrated that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Beware of listening to musical instruments and singing, for verily, both these acts germinate nifaaq (hypocrisy) in the heart just as water causes vegetables to grow.” (Kaf-fur Ru’aa’)

These Nasheed shows and Nasheed tours which are becoming rampant are not permissible due to the following reasons:

 

1) Professional Singers: It is Haraam to be a professional singer in Islam – kindly view the following texts:

 

A – Hanafi Math-hab: “The Mashaaikh have explicitly mentioned that to sing for enjoyment/pleasure or to earn some money is Haraam without a difference of opinion” (Fathul Qadeer and other kitaabs)

 

What are these shows for? Mere fun and entertainment!!! Even their income is Haraam. A true Muslim understands that all these Nasheed shows, tours, etc. are for entertainment.
