Working in music
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3090 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, 'When someone with whose religion and character you are satisfied asks your daughter in marriage, accede to his request. If you do not do so, there will be temptation on earth and extensive corruption.'
Your Question: shall i accept him?
Dear and beloved Sister in Islam, if your question is can I accept him, then our answer would be:
As long as the brother who has proposed to you has professed belief in Islam, and he is not one amongst your mehram or sacrosanct relationships which would prohibit marriage in Shariah.the marriage between you and this brother would be absolutely lawful, legal, and valid in the Sight of Shariah Law and of Allah Subhanah.
Beloved Sister, you have asked us: shall I accept him..knowing that the source of his earnings or livelihood might not be in conformity with the guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws).that is a decision sister which you alone can make best.
We obviously are not fully aware of his conditions or yours, and it would not be appropriate for us to comment or advise whether you should or should not accept the proposal.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
