A drum which is open from one side

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:
There is a kind of drum which is covered on one side, and the second side is covered apart from a small opening. Is this similar to the daff?

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

This is more like the tabl (a kind of drum which is covered on both sides) and may be worse, because the sound comes out from this small opening which makes the sound more refined than if it was all sealed or all open. So it is not permissible to use this drum in the same manner as the daff is used, because the daff is not as bad, undoubtedly, whereas this gives a very refined tone and makes it more entertaining and intoxicating. 

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.
