#11. On the authority of Hadhrat Ibn Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated: “The musical drum (tablah) is haraam. Liquor is haraam, and musical instruments are haraam.” (Kaf-fur Ruaa’)

#12. Hadhrat Ibn Mas’ud (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated: “Verily, Nabi (may Allah be pleased with him) heard a man singing o­ne night. He then said: ‘His Salaat is unacceptable! His Salaat is unacceptable! His Salaat is unacceptable!” (Nailul Autaar)

#13. Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that Allah’s Apostle (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “Listening to music and singing is sinful. Sitting at such gatherings is fisq (immoral transgression). Deriving pleasure from it is kufr.” (Nailul Autaar)

#14. Hadhrat Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Allah’s Apostle (may Allah be pleased with him) 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 Jahannum.” (Kaf-fur Ruaa’)

The evil of music and singing is sufficiently abominable to warrant it being lumped together with zina (fornication). o­ne Hadith describes singing as “the spell of shaitaan.”

The tablah and other forms of musical drums are not to be confused with the duff for which there is limited permissibility.
