Music Changing Me?
Posted 14 June 2012 - 11:54 PM
I love music, i listen to music all the time, I prey and I turn music off during adan times, but I still love music, and whenever I am not doing anything important, I have earphones on and I start listening, its just me, i love music, it relaxes me, it makes me happy. and im sure that there are alot
But one day, i wanted to go out with my friend and my mother was taking me, and I have put on my earphones and started listening, but I lowered the volume because if my mother started talking to me, I can hear her and take them off in respect to her, and she has noticed that I listen to music alot, and she told me that if i listen to music too much, when i start reading or listening to qur'an, I wont be able to feel it like it is supposed to be, and I dont know if that is true, and now, when I listen or read qur'an I know that it is allahs words and how holy and important it is in my life and ofcourse it comes before anything, but i still love music, but i now fear that my love for music is haram, can it be bad for me on the way I am now? I listen to 100% appropriate music and it contains nothing inapropriate.

Once before when I was listening to music I decided to quit. So i stopped listening. It was hard and I felt like listening but I forced myself not to. After a few weeks it got SOO easy to not listen to it and I was soo happy that I stopped. So try it bro, its easier than it seems. Maybe listen to some nasheed?

What music do you like to listen to most often currently? Give me one song or composition. Just out of curiosity, wanna check the key signature.

Second listen to the quran, even if it is little and read it,
and I will tell yu somewhat with experiance, the fast speeed of music compared to the melodious tone the quran, they don't fit together. And quran starts to feel slow.
