Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
What is the ruling on listening to songs and those who play songs loudly in their cars?.
(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.)
Praise be to Allaah.
Playing songs and music loudly in cars is a kind of committing sin openly. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “All of my ummah may be forgiven except those who commit sin openly.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (6069) and Muslim (2990). This hadeeth contains a stern warning to those who commit evil openly and broadcast it and spread it and do it blatantly. This person who commits sin openly feels no shame before Allaah or His creation, so he must be denounced and admonished.
We ask Allaah to set the affairs of the Muslins straight.
And Allaah knows best.
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.
