Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Dear Brother Burhan,
My wife had gone to see a movie, along with her brother in a cinema. In this perticlur movie they said and claimed that Music was not haram to listen or play, and it is not Haram to wear Jeans (tight denim trousers) for women and men both.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
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.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 1885 Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah
That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said in a sermon: “The best speech is that which is embodied in the Book of Allah, the Al Quran; and the best guidance is the guidance given by me, Mohamed (saws).”
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 185:
Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent
down: this Book is a Perfect Guidance for mankind and consists of clear
Teachings which show the
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 1-3:
All praise is for Allah Alone, Who has sent down this Book to His Servant (Mohamed (saws), and assigned nothing crooked to it. This Book says everything directly, so that he may warn the people of the severe chastisement of Allah and give good news to the believers, who do righteous deeds, that they will have an excellent reward.
Since when did the ‘movies’ become the Criterion between Truth and falsehood?? Allah and His Messenger (saws) alone have the sole and exclusive authority to declare what is the Truth and what is falsehood; and they alone have the sole and exclusive Right to declare what is lawful and what is unlawful…..
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verses 116-117:
116 But say not for any false thing that your tongues may put forth "This is ‘halaal’ and this is ‘haraam’" so as to ascribe false things to Allah. For those who ascribe false things to Allah will never prosper.
117 (In such falsehood) is but a paltry profit; but they will have a most Grievous Penalty.
Your Statements: In this perticlur movie they said and claimed that Music was not haram to listen or play, and it is not Haram to wear Jeans (tight denim trousers) for women and men both.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 28 Surah Qasas verse 55:
55 And when they (the believers) hear ‘vain talk’ they turn away therefrom and say: "To us our deeds and to you yours; peace be to you: we seek not the ignorant.”
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqaan verse 72:
72 (The servants of Allah are) Those who witness no falsehood, and if they (happen to) pass by futility they pass by it with honorable (avoidance);
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 74 Surah Mudhadhthir verses 41-45:
41 And (ask) of the Sinners:
42 "What led you into Hell-Fire?"
43 They will say: "We were not of those who prayed;"
44 "Nor were we of those who fed the indigent;"
45 "But we used to talk vanities with vain talkers;"
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.494B Narrated by Abu Amir
that he heard the Prophet (saws) saying, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of (illegal) musical instruments, as lawful.”
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3654 Narrated by Abu Umamah
The Prophet (saws) said, "Allah has sent me as a Mercy to the universe and as a guidance to the universe, and my Lord, Who is Great and Glorious, has commanded me to annihilate stringed instruments, wind instruments, idols, crosses and pre-Islamic customs. My Lord, Who is Great and Glorious has sworn, 'By My might, none of My servants will drink a mouthful of wine without My giving him a similar amount of pus to drink, but he will not abandon it through fear of Me without My giving him drink from the holy tanks.'"
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3153 Narrated by Muhammad ibn Hatib al-Jumahi
The Prophet (saws) said, "The distinction between what is lawful and what is unlawful is the song and the tambourine at a wedding."
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4909 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud
I heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: ‘Singing produces hypocrisy in the hearts’.
Allah and His Messenger (saws) have neither specified nor limited the believers to a particular Islamic dress, but rather gave some conditions which the dress one adorns himself/herself with must be fulfilled:
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 26:
26 O ye children of Adam! We have bestowed clothing upon you to cover your shame as well as to be an adornment to you; but the clothing of ‘taqwa’ (piety, righteousness, etc.) that is the best. Such are among the Signs of Allah that they may receive admonition!
Provided that the below five conditions of apparel are not violated, there is absolutely no restriction on the type or color of clothing the believers are allowed to wear in Islam:
- Clothes worn should not announce arrogance.
- The ‘satr’ of the person (man or woman) must be covered.
- The clothes worn must not be tight so as to display ones figure and curves, and should not be transparent.
- The clothes worn must not be an imitation of the pagans or disbelievers.
- Men should not imitate women in their clothing; nor should women imitate men in their clothing.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
