Music in Islam in Islamic Discussions Posted October 26, 2004 · Edited October 26, 2004 by Rashed Amir Salam, There is different about using an instrument for entertainment and fun instead of using it for announcing nikkah for example. At the time of our beloved Prophet (saws) people used the daff for announcing nikkahs or other things. People have misunderstood that hadith. That Daff is also Halal to listen to. nay. If you want to sing.. nasheed or whatever without music wait for eid ul fitr :D thats better than listening to music. And Danish, Don't think soo deep into that thing.. because Allah SWT knows best why this things are like they are.
