Nasheed Questions

By Mufti Shafiq Jakhura


Q.I would like to know regarding present day nasheeds whether they are permissible to listen to or not when their content (words and meanings) are correct and also there are no musical instruments.(e.g. Zain Bhika, Junaid Jamshed).
What if the nasheeds have the same tune as songs? Will it be correct to listen to the nasheed if there is a duff playing in the background?  Today most nasheeds have background sounds which are done through the computer.  With these are they permissible?

 


A. If the words of the nasheeds are consistent with Islamic teachings and the recital does not include the playing of musical instruments or sounds resembling the sounds of musical instruments, then such nasheeds could be listened to. I strongly advise you to study the book, " Slippery Stone", by the Respected Brother Khalid Baig for further insight into this topic.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
