The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]

Poem on music

O Muslim, lawful things have good attributes

Where is the good in singing, dancing and listening to flutes?

Can we compare the words of singers and sounds of Musicians

To the Glorious Quran, its lessons, wisdoms and admonitions?

How many singers do you know and give admiration,

And how many do you know of the companions and the following generation?

How much do you spend on singers from your dollars?

Compared to how many you know of Islamic Scholars.

Do you see how much is memorized of Music songs?

While you ignore the book to which memorization belongs?

How much do you memorize of these incantations?

And swayed back and forth in intoxication?

Have you not seen those who follow the misguided?

And increase the loudness of the Music, when they should hide it?

And who writes their songs? thinkers, or men of academia?

Or maybe scholars, like Ahmad, Malik or maybe ibn Taymiyah.

O you who listens to music..

Don’t you see that All the songs of the world and all the lyrics you’ve seen

Wouldn’t compare in reward to Alif Laam Meem.

    Brother Kamal,
    That’s really an excellent reminder for every one. I’ll send to those I knew. May you/all be firm in our faith and be guided on the right path ”in sha’a Allah.” Jazakallahu khairan.
