      How Music is related to Selling out Soul to Devil

People wonder if Music is Haram in Islam or not.If you hunt for fatwas you will surely get some of them supporting your views.But I would like to share with you an interesting fact about Music.Recently I listened to a lecture of a former Musician, MO TO Muhammad.He talked about how Music is a tool of Devil.His interview in Deen show is available in you tube.Inspired by his talk I researched on Music and its history and here is what I found.

It is rightly said that Music is a tool of Devil as the former Musician MoTo Muhammad admits that Some singers sell their soul to devil .He talked about Devil and Music-how shaitan enslaves us my making us listen to music day and night .Harsh but true,People addicted to Music go away from Allah.Let us see how?Some People simply love  listening to Music.When they become excited they listen to music and dance.When they become Sad, they listen to Music and drink.Music has invaded our lives .Music is an illusion.It makes you feel better for a second but the peace doesn’t last long.It pushes the listener to the same state and they keep listening to Music at all times to the extent that their lives begin to revolve around Music.They listen to songs on roads,in the class,while eating ,driving and even they sleep with headphones..Such is the trap of Shaitan who pushes a person away from the dhikr of Allah and hangs out with the Person every time in the name of music.

Messages of Music is Contrary to the Message of Quran

On One hand Quran teaches us to be respectful to our Parents & to Obey Allah and his Messengers on the Other hand Music teaches all sorts of evil:”To make your own rules”,”Homosexuality”,”Drugs and Alcohol consumption”,”Nudity” and “illegal Sex”.

People take Music for granted.They think that “O ! it is just a Music”.But remember ! anything we hear again and again has to influence our mind.And they are filled with messages that will affect you somehow.They are filled with satanic verses and inspire to break rules and do unacceptable stuffs and sadly our children are grasping these messages fast.They are taking the Musicians as their role models and walking far away from Sunnah of the Prophet(pbuh).

Message of Quran Vs Message of Shaitan-

On One hand Quran teaches us Submission and asks us not to blindly follow our Passions and desires on the other hand shaitan asks us to do whatever we want.

From Quran :

أَرَأَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلَٰهَهُ هَوَاهُ أَفَأَنْتَ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِ وَكِيلًا

 Have you ever seen the one who has taken his own desires as his god? Would you take the responsibility of guiding him?(Surah Furqan,43)
And from Shaitan :

“Do Whatever You Want “

Music is a trickery of shaitan:Hadeeth that Music is Haram in Islam

1)Allaah says to Shaitan,(interpretation of the meaning):

Allaah said to Iblees: And befool them gradually those whom you can among them with your voice (i.e. songs, music, and any other call for Allaah’s disobedience)…” [al-Israa’ 17:64]

2)Narrated Abu Malik Al-Ashari:
“The Messenger (pbuh) of Allah (SWT) said, “Some people of my Ummah will drink wine, calling it by other than its real name, merriment will be made for them through the playing of musical instruments and the singing of lady singers. Allah will cleave the earth under them and turn others into monkeys and swines.
[Ibn Ma’jah Vol.5 Hadith No.4020]

3)The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Among my ummah there will certainly be people who permit zinaa, silk, alcohol and musical instruments…” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari ta’leeqan, no. 5590; narrated as mawsool by al-Tabaraani and al-Bayhaqi. See al-Silsilah al-Saheehah by al-Albaani, 91).

4)Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The view of the four Imaams is that all kinds of musical instruments are haraam. It was reported in Saheeh al-Bukhaari and elsewhere that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said that there would be among his ummah those who would allow zinaa, silk, alcohol and musical instruments, and he said that they would be transformed into monkeys and pigs… None of the followers of the imaams mentioned any dispute concerning the matter of music. (al-Majmoo’, 11/576).

5)Al-Albaani (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The four madhhabs are agreed that all musical instruments are haraam. (al-Saheehah, 1/145).

6)Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: With regard to the view of Imaam Ahmad, his son ‘Abd-Allaah said: I asked my father about singing. He said: Singing makes hypocrisy grow in the heart; I do not like it. Then he mentioned the words of Maalik: the evildoers (faasiqs) among us do that. (Ighaathat al-Lahfaan).

7)Songs make hypocrisy grow grow in the heart just as water makes crop grow (Bayhaqi.Shu’ab al Iman)

8)Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: How strange! What type of faith, light, insight, guidance and knowledge can be gained from listening to tuneful verses and music in which most of what is said is haraam and deserves the wrath and punishment of Allaah and His Messenger? … How can anyone who has the least amount of insight and faith in his heart draw near to Allaah and increase his faith by enjoying something which is hated by Him, and He detests the one who says it and the one who accepts it? (Madaarij al-Saalikeen, 1/485)

9)Shaykh al-Islam said, discussing the state of the person who has gotten used to listening to singing: Hence you find that those who have gotten used to it and for whom it is like food and drink will never have the desire to listen to the Qur’aan or feel joy when they hear it, and they never find in listening to its verses the same feeling that they find when listening to poetry. Indeed, if they hear the Qur’aan, they hear it with an inattentive heart and talk whilst it is being recited, but if they hear whistling and clapping of hands, they lower their voices and keep still, and pay attention. (Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 11/557 ff)

People Selling Out Soul to Devil through Music: History of Music

Singer MoTo Muhammad who left Music talked about Aleister Crawley in deen Show where he asked us to Research about Aleister Crawley . He told us to  pick up some lyrics of songs.He said thay We will see that It inspires us to follow our heart and do whatever We want.


Do you know where this inspiration came from?This inspiration came from the Most Wicked man on Earth:”ALEISTER CRAWLEY”.

why is music haram in islam

Crowley  was a recreational drug experimenter, bisexual and an individualist social critic. Perhaps no one single person has had such widespread influence on the countercultural turns of the 20th century as Cambridge-educated occultist and inventor of the religion of Thelema, Aleister Crowley. And according to Crowley, he isn’t finished yet. “1000 years from now,” Crowley once wrote, “the world will be sitting in the sunset of Crowlianity.” The self-aggrandizing Crowley called himself “the Great Beast 666” and many other tongue-in-cheek apocalyptic titles. The British press dubbed him “The Wickedest Man in the World,” also the title of the documentary, one of a four-part BBC 4 series on famously sinister figures called “Masters of Darkness.” Crowley is perhaps most famous for his dictum “Do what thou wilt,” which, taken out of its context, seems to be a philosophy of absolute, unfettered libertinism.(Source)

He wrote a” Book of Law ” during his honeymoon and claimed  that it came from God .Crowley claims that he took dictation from an entity named Aiwass, whom he later identified as his own Holy Guardian Angel

Most people are quite aware of Aleister Crowley’s censored appearance on the cover of Sgt. Pepper among the Beatles’ other heroes. Few, though, have gone on to ask why Aleister Crowley made the cut. John Lennon made the connection clear in an interview with Playboy when he said that “The whole Beatle idea was to do what you want, right?  To take your own responsibility.” Lennon was paraphrasing “Do what thou wilt,” which is one of the central precepts of Thelema, the religion founded by Aleister Crowley. Thelema is the Greek word which means “will” and teaches that we each must discover our individual inmost nature, described as the “True Will.”

crawley on beatles cover:music and islam

The Beatles were only the first of many counterculture rock musicians in the 1960s to openly cite Aleister Crowley as an influence. Led Zeppelin‘s guitarist Jimmy Page was very interested in Aleister Crowley and he remains a prominent Thelemite today. We have even recently learned that Frank Zappa was reading Crowley in 1968.

Apart from rock stars, who helped to popularize the writings of Aleister Crowley, we can also look at some of the people who revolutionized western culture in other, perhaps more deep and lasting ways. To start with, let’s consider where these musicians may have heard about Aleister Crowley. Perhaps the most likely candidate is Harry Smith, a Thelemite whose influence on folk and rock music cannot be overstated. Aleister Crowley also once dined with Aldous Huxley in Berlin, and the rumor goes that Crowley introduced him to peyote. Timothy Leary saw himself as continuing Crowley’s work, and said so on national television.

Crawley used Music to push his agenda.He was a satanist. The people are so unaware of the trap of Devil that they have become accustomed to smoking,gambling,drinking,dancing and being Naked.Music Industry pushes this horrible Satanic belief.The Artist grabs this philosophy and pushes it into Music.The devil would never go to People and say,”Follow me”.Devil hides behind music to Put it directly into the mind.This just make People more miserable,drug addict and prone to suicide.

You will be shocked to know that Some musician call devil as their lord and praise him instead of Allah.And they are making you do the same.

People selling their Soul to Devil

Sadly, this rise to fame mirrors many, mostly female starlets who quickly gained fame and fortune by selling their souls. Case in point, in a rather horrific interview, would-be Christian-pop superstar turned “I Kissed a Girl” singer Katy Perry said: “When I was 15, because I grew up in a household where all I ever did was listen to gospel music…. I swear I wanted to be, like, the Amy Grant of music, but it didn’t work out, and so I sold my soul to the devil.”

There are many others:

  • “The devil took me by hand.” – Bon Jovi
  • “I sold my soul to the devil” – Katy Perry
  • “Judas (Devil) is the demon I cling to.” – Lady Gaga
  • “I’m a slave for you. Dancing in the dark.” – Britney Spears
  • “Yes,I am a Devil Worshipper”-Rihana
  •  “You’ve got your demons. I’ve got a few of my own.” – The Eagles
  • “First of all, we want to thank Satan.” – Red Hot Chili Peppers
  •  “I sold my soul to the devil.” – Cage
  • Prayin to Satan. Satan done got me.” – Bizarre
  •  “I speak for Satan, Satan, Satan. My sweet forsaken Satan, Satan.” – Jonas Brothers
  • “Rock’s always been the devil’s music.” – David Bowie
  • “I’m the devil’s advocate. We have our own worshipers.” – Frank Zappa
  •  “I am possessed by all that is evil. The death of your God, I demand and sit at Lord Satan’s left hand.” – Venom
  • “I sold my soul to the devil. I’m going to hell. I’m headed to hell. I want the money, the women, the fortune, and the fame. That Means I’ll end up burning in hell scorching in flames. Satan’ll be in to see me later to see if I’m interested in being partners. Devil worshippin’, Satan music.” – Eminem


Satan uses these musicians as a medium to spread his ideology.Many artists have stated that they feel posessed at times.To name a few,

  • It’s like I’m on automatic pilot. By the time we’re halfway through the first number someone else is steering me. I’m just along for the ride. I become possessed when I get onstage.” – Angus Young
  • “When people meet me, they expect Sahsa. I’m really reserved, and nothing like Sasha. *She can do things I cannot do. Right before I performed, I raised my hand up, and it was kinda the first time that I felt something else come into me. It’s a transformation when I go on stage. I have out-of-body experiences [on stage]. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body.” – Beyonce
  • “Before the show, you gotta kind of prepare. I look in the mirror. When you get on stage, it takes over you know. I’m a complete different person. It’s like I don’t know who I am.” – B.O.B
  • “My soul is possessed by this devil my new name is Rain Man.” – Eminem
  • “I just go crazy when I go on stage … it’s like someone else takes over my body.” – Glen Tipton


These People have sold their soul for fame.(ref)And we imitate them.How sad it is ? We have no problem when our children listen to music.Morever the youth too have grasped the concept of “Do What Thou Wilt” and so they won’t listen.Dear friends,When you listen to some thing again and agin ,it is ought to enter our Subconscious mind.You get tricked by the trickery of shaitan.Music has enslaved people.Although they think that they are being Original,but when yo look with a critical eye,you find them dressing in a certain way,talking and walking in a way they admire certain People.

A muslim don’t need to search for a role Model.Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) is a role Model for all.Instead of acquiring the sunnah of the Prophet we are pushing ourself into the deception of devil.

Life is full of Struggle but at the end you get paradise for all your struggle.Only the People who don’t know the Purpose of life,follow everything.

“Do you then wonder at this recitation (the Qur’aan)?And you laugh at it and weep not,

Wasting your (precious) lifetime in pastime and amusements (singing)”[al-Najm 53:59-61]

” Indeed, Satan is an enemy to you; so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be among the companions of the Blaze.”(35:6)May Allah guide you and Me and Protect us from Hell fire.Ameen.

May Allah guide us to what that is good and keep us away from evil.Ameen.

In a video shared by him on Twitter, Hamza Ali Abbasi spoke about his journey – how he became an atheist when he was 14-15 years old and how science “brought him back” being a theist when he went to the US.

“I want to spend the rest of my life talking about God,” Abbasi said in the video-sharing that his decision is based on 10 years research.

Abbasi, who recently married Naimal Khawar, said that now he will try to shape his life in accordance with Islam and will try to spread across the message through various platforms.

“Being an ‘ex-atheist’, I want to share the answers I have received about God with people. I don’t want to debate or convince people, I just want to share,” he said and added that if he will make any movie or show, then it will be about Islam.

babri masjid demolisher now a muslim

Man involved in Babri Masjid demolition now builds mosques to wash away guilt

Do you know that Kar sevak from Haryana who was part of Babri Masjid demolition, now preaches Islam, builds masjids ?He has built 90 Mosque so far.

Aamir, a former Shiv Sena leader from Panipat, Haryana often recalls the fateful day of December 6, 1992, that marked the demolition of Babri Masjid.

Aamir said that along with his friend Mohammed Umar, formerly Yogendra Pal, he had vowed to construct the Sri Ram Mandir at Ayodhya demolishing the masjid. Today, the two are fulfilling their pledge to renovate 100 mosques, in an attempt to purge themselves of their sins.

On December 1, 1992, Aamir reached Ayodhya to join thousands of kar sevaks coming from across the country. On December 6 that year, according to Aamir, he was the first man to climb the middle dome.

“We feared that the army might have been deployed in large number. But on ground there was hardly any security, that gave us a boost and we were mentally prepared to demolish the masjid that day,” said Mohammed Aamir.

Aamir along with many other kar sevaks from Sonipat and Panipat demolished the dome with spades and pickaxes.

“When I reached my home town Panipat after that I was given a hero’s welcome by the people,” Aamir said.

“But at home, my family’s reaction shocked me. My secular family denounced my actions. I had participated in the kar seva because I felt strongly about it, but I realized later that I was wrong.”

Mohammed Aamir, born a Rajput, said, “I realized that I had taken law in my hands and violated the constitution of India. Guilty, I embraced Islam.”

#Hijabisanidentity- Hijab walk to Stop the discrimination and marginalization of Muslim women and girls.

Freedom of religion is a fundamental human right in the Ghanaian legal system. To be specific Article 21 (c) of the 1992 Constitution states: “All persons shall have the right to freedom to practice any religion and to manifest such practice.”

Unfortunately, most Muslim women and girls living in Ghana have dealt with individuals who exert their biases and bigotry into institutional cultures. Thus, making it impossible for Muslim women to wear the hijab as part of their religious freedoms stipulated in the 1992 constitution.

The #Hijabisanidentity campaign pushes for the right of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab to be free to do so without intimidation from any individual or institution.

Why do Muslim Woman Wear Hijab.

Recently, an invigilator of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) asked a candidate to remove her hijab before sitting her exams. This latest move sparked a recent social media campaign by Islam advocates dubbed: #Hijabisanidentity

They believe the successful campaign which culminated in a massive demonstration in some regions – North, Ashanti and Accra – will help shake up some traditionally-held cultural misconceptions about the female Muslim identity. On Saturday October 12, Ghanaian Muslim women marched for their right to wear the hijab. The #Hijabisanidentity campaign is still on.

Stop policing Women’s bodies!

Sinead o connor

Sinéad O’Connor Performs in Hijab.Says : ‘I have been a Muslim all my life and I didn’t realise it’

Dublin: Singer Sinead O’Connor stepped out in a traditional hijab with her son after converting to Islam in October.

The 52-year-old wore a bright red abaya and matching hijab when she appeared on “The Late Late Show” in Dublin on Friday night, reports ” the sun”

Earlier in the day, she arrived at the studio with her son, 15-year-old Shane Lunny, who looks exactly like his mom.

Sinead was dressed more casually in blue trousers, a matching belted shirt, and a navy cardigan. She complete the look with a dark blue headscarf. Shane carried his mother’s red abaya to the venue.

Shane apart, Sinead is also mother to 32-year-old Jake, 23-year-old Roisin and 12-year-old Yeshua.

In October last year, Sinead announced that she had converted to Islam, changing her name to Shuhada Davitt.

Sinéad O’Connor has described how she felt “at home” after reading the Koran and subsequently embracing the Muslim religion.

The singer, who has returned following a five-year hiatus from touring, announced her decision to “revert” to Islam almost a year ago and says she often wears the hijab as a means of signalling her new-found beliefs.

The word ‘revert’ refers to the idea that if you were to study the Koran you would realise that you were a Muslim all your life and you didn’t realise it. That’s what happened to me,” she said on Friday night’s Late Late Show.

“I am 52. I grew up in a very different Ireland to the one that exists now and it was a very oppressed country religiously speaking. And everybody was miserable; nobody was getting any joy in God.

”The singer, who has long captivated audiences with her views on Irish life, spoke about reading the scriptures as a child and later exploring other religious texts “trying to find the truth about God”. She left Islam until last because she held her own prejudices about the religion, she said.

Archeologists finds the World’s Oldest Rural Mosque in Israel

 Archaeologists in Israel have discovered the remains of one of the world’s oldest rural mosques, built around the time Islam arrived in the holy land,

world's oldest rural mosque

The Israel Antiquities Authority estimates that the mosque, uncovered ahead of new construction in the Bedouin town of Rahat in the Negev desert, dates back to the 7th to 8th centuries.

There are large mosques known to be from that period in Jerusalem and in Makkah but it is rare to find a house of prayer so ancient whose congregation is likely to have been local farmers, the antiquities authority said.

Play the Quiz : Identify these Mosques

Excavated at the site were the remains of an open-air mosque — a rectangular building, about the size of a single-car garage, with a prayer niche facing south toward Makkah.

“This is one of the earliest mosques known from the beginning of the arrival of Islam in Israel, after the Arab conquest of 636 C.E.,” said Gideon Avni of the antiquities authority.

“The discovery of the village and the mosque in its vicinity are a significant contribution to the study of the history of the country during this turbulent period.”

3 thoughts on “Is Music Haram ?How is Music related to Selling out Soul to Devil”

  1. Thank you for the straight education .
    What is safest is to avoid what is colored , what is doubtful or at the risk of choice.

  2. Salaam alaykum wa ramatullahi wa barakatu

    While it is always said that music is haram… I wish to clarify a few things from a Muslim perspective that isn’t skewed with accepting colonialism’s commercialization of the ways of shaytan…

    I personally do not support the musicians that brag about the affairs of this world… however, I have worked with numerous Muslim musicians who seek to create halal audio documentaries and halal recordings!

    Please do not label ALL music as haram just because one has only been exposed to the music of the kuffar!

    Of Course the kuffr music industry is haram, it is run by those who serve shaytan, … that is still no excuse to label ALL music as haram, there are even permissable times to dance ( around family ) .

    A healthy Muslim family can enjpy healthy Muslim music with out succumbbing to the shaytan side of things… it just takes discipline and understanding…

    Either way I do not disagree with those who have cut music completely out of there lives either.

  3. Aleister Crowley is so misunderstood.

    ‘Do what thou wilt’ also includes converting to Islam, and living a life of piety. If that’s what you want to do, do it!

    One of his books ‘Diary of a Drug Fiend’ covers this in more detail. In it, he gives the example of someone who takes his teachings out of context, and becomes a drug addict, after which Crowley questions whether that was what they really wanted.

    Amusingly, this article actually quotes another, which says:

    ‘Crowley is perhaps most famous for his dictum “Do what thou wilt,” which, taken out of its context, seems to be a philosophy of absolute, unfettered libertinism.’

    It appears someone should read their sources a little more closely. 🙂
