Ruling on treating disease with music

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
What is the ruling on treating disease with music? Some people claim that it is useful and that it calms the nerves.

Praise be to Allaah.

There is no basis for treating disease with music. This is one of the actions of the foolish. Music is not a treatment, it is a disease which takes the form of musical instruments. All of it is a disease of the heart which corrupts people. The beneficial treatment which brings peace to the soul is for the sick person to listen to the Qur’aan and useful lessons and ahaadeeth. Treating disease with music and musical instruments will merely make them get used to falsehood and make them even more sick, and it will make it hard for them to listen to the Qur’aan and Sunnah and useful lessons. There is no help and no strength except with Allaah. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
