Is Music Absolutely Forbidden

In response to my question regarding music, you mentioned that "....music in itself is not prohibited in the absolute sense. If it is, then the sources of Islam must mention it." According to the people who consider Hadith as an independent source of understanding religion, music has been absolutely prohibited and they will bring forth the Hadith which say that music is forbidden. How you will answer that?
Secondly, you wrote that "Prohibiting something because its use might lead to sin is always a prerogative of the state". I understand your point. But we have examples where God prohibited some thing for Sadd zari'a. Is not there any possibility that prophet (sws) prohibited music as a sadd zari'a?
My second question is regarding the expression Allah has used in Qur'an for offering prayers. The Books says: "akeemu sala. What does iqaamat means here? I have heard that some people have taken the word aqeemoo in a different way and them don't offer prayer. Kindly shed some light, by telling the views of such individuals and telling the meaning of the word "aqeemoo".

Thirdly, I commit a sin (I go near zina, although I do not actually do zina but I go near it). My problem is that I also offer prayers and also read Qur'an with understanding. Some times I think that if I can not leave the bad I should leave the prayers as well. Because I think that may be I am a hypocrite who is just trying to show off (although my intention is never to show off). What should I do with this thought of leaving good? I have tried but haven't been able to leave the sin; I feel I am in the middle of good and bad forces. Secondly, when some one is bad in one aspect of his life, can he advise well to others on any other aspect of life if not the one in which he is bad. People say that first one should apply well on himself then only he should advise others. Kindly put some light on this.

Women Vocalists

My question to you is regarding women and music. I see Ghamdi Sahab has always been a supporter of music being permissible within the limits of Islam. My question to you is how can a woman pursue music as a career by remaining within the limits of Islam? It would be great if you can also define these limits if what I asked is permissible.

Watching Vulgar Movies And Songs

Are we allowed to watch Indian songs and English movies in which the performers are often half nude? If yes, how big sin is this? Is it a grave sin or a minor one? How can one prevent indulging in these sins? Though I offer my prayers regularly yet these things attract me very much. I just watch the song. I promise myself not to watch again but fall prey to the snares of Satan again and again. You know devil will not leave us to grave according to Islam.

A Prophetic Tradition About Music

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, that there will be a time in his Ummah when four things will be sought to become lawful including, fornication, silk, alcohol and the musical instruments. I don't recall the correct wording. Anyway, most of the people (scholars) quote this particular Ḥadīth in the argument that music is haraam, saying that since the phrase "musical instruments" has come along with the other three forbidden items, how could it be allowed. They also say that in the particular hadith, the wording is such that it says "people will seek to make lawful…." They say that one can seek to make lawful only that which is unlawful. I tend to agree with their reasoning. The only thing that is required is the actual context of this particular hadith. If you can give me the context of this particular Ḥadīth to mean that music is not haraam in generality, that would tremendously satisfy me

موسیقی کے بارے میں علما کا نقطہ نظر

میں موسیقی سے متعلق ایک سوال پوچھنا چاہتا ہوں۔ اور میں سمجھتا ہوں کہ اس معاملے میں غامدی صاحب کا نقطہ نظر صحیح ہے۔ لوگ عموماً اپنے کم علمی کی وجہ سے یہ سمجھتے ہیں کہ غامدی صاحب پہلے سکالر ہیں جو موسیقی کے بارے میں ایسی مثبت رائے رکھتے ہیں۔ تا ہم میں نے ایک جگہ پڑھا ہے کہ بہت سے مشہور علماء، جیسا کہ امام نووی، امام غزالی، اور کچھ دوسرے، موسیقی کے بارے میں ایسی ہی آراء رکھتے تھے۔ برائے مہربانی آپ زمانہ حال اور ماضی کے علماء کے موسیقی سے متعلق نقطہ ہائے نظر پر تفصیل سے روشنی ڈالیں تا کہ میں لوگوں کو یہ بتا سکوں کہ غامدی صاحب پہلے عالم نہیں جنہوں نے موسیقی کی اجازت دی ہے۔
