Islam therefore allows for food for nafs (self desires) too.
Islam asks to control the self desires and never says to kill self desires. As for example, law of marriage is introduced in Islam so that the necessary self desire of sex can be satisfied in a halal way. While there is a provision in Islam for giving food to nafs, there is every reason to believe that the provision for food to ruh, that is, music, must be there. Music is food for ruh. It is not a food for nafs.
In religious books, it has been mentioned that if a kid weeps so much and does not stop crying, recite third kalema (la haula wa la quwwat).
in the same way as the diamond is made dirty if dropped in mud.
of Allah known as deputy of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
The Empty Glass or Bottle is not Halal nor Haram.
wine bars, night clubs and dance parties.
The kitchen knife is halal if used to cut vegetables and meat of the kitchen but the same kitchen knife will become haram if somebody innocent is killed through it. The knife itself is not halal or haram. It works as a supportive agent to the user to cut the vegetables.
How the supporter of Allah’s song can be haram?
Their case was like the food consumer who is at the food table where so many types of food are kept.
Out of that food, some food is liked whereas some are disliked by the food consumer, though all of the food served to him was Halal.
Hazarat Mumshad Dinwari (RA) was a great saint of Chishtiya silsila. He lived in Baghdad. His was the eight saint in succession after Prophet Mohammed (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in Chishtiya silsila. So, he was a great saint of the time of shaykh Junaid Baghdadi (RA). He dreamed in the sleep in which vision of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was seen. He talked with Prophet Mohammed (صلى الله عليه وسلم). During his talks, he wanted to know if Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was pleased with mehfil-e-sama or not as some people were commenting against it.
Dawood (AS) was Prophet and pious so his music and musical instruments must be considered as pious and halal. So, some aalims (scholars) say that to say that Dawood (AS) used musical instruments is an insult to him and one must seek forgiveness for that. What a way of thinking of present day scholars in spite of the fact they know that Chishtiya saints are used to listen songs for the beloved with music.
(c) And there are among men those who purchase idle talk in order to mislead others from Allah's path without knowledge, and those who throw ridicule upon it. For such there will be a humiliating punishment." (31:6)
Music used in bars, night clubs and other haram works, programs or songs like the ones which are sung by qafirs are haram.
But the Music used to glorify Allah, to respect and praise Prophets and friends of Allah is Halal.
It must be noted that whatever talks of religious books, sayings in hadis books or quranic verses which may smell against Music or Musical instruments should be considered as Music or Musical Instruments used in Haram work like wine-liquor gatherings, dance parties etc.
Halal music is a good thing.
“ Sometimes Khawja Khurd (RA) used to celeberate “Urs” of Khawja Baqi Billah (RA). My Father narrates that he has seen many times that people use to offer help to Shah Khurd (RA). Some one used to say “I will take the responsibility to provide rice (for Urs). Other used to say” I will take the responsibility to provide mear ( for Urs) and someone else used to say “ I WILL TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ARRANGING QAWWAL” ( for the urs)”
Khwaja Khurd (RA) is the son and khalifah of Khawja Baqi Billah(RA)
Khawja Baqi Billah is the Shaykh ( peer ) of Imam Rabbani (RA).
Please note an important point that people used to arrange Qawwal for urs. Those people who perform ( read) sam’a ( audition) in urs gathering are called Qawwal. This shows that sam’a was also a part of this Urs. Imam Rabbani Mujaddid al fathani (rd) also did not object to sam’a and Insha Allah this will be scanned later from his maktoob.
Also Data Ganj Hujweri (Rd) has written in Kashf Al Mahjoob an incidence about Jaunaid Baghdadi (rd) listening to sam’a.
“ My father used to tell that he has seen one of the khalifah of Khawja Berang ( RA) who was very old , but he had grace/ light on his face. This Khalifa was famous by the name “ Shaykhi”.
