salam to all readers .

anyone of you know about the what is music and it 'hukum' in the perspective of islam??
pretty sure most of you are going to say
is it ??
kindly scroll down :)
References within the context of the Holy Qur`aan along with the Hadith of the Prophet confirm that music is haraam. 
Interpreters of the Qur`aan have defined the term `lahwal hadith` which is mentioned in the Qur`aan as:
 1) Singing and listening to songs. 
 2) Purchasing of male and female singers. 
 3) Purchase of instruments of fun and amusement.

When Sayyidana Abdullah Ibne Mas`ood, a very close companion of our Prophet was asked about the meaning of the term `lahwal hadith`, he replied

“I swear by Him besides whom there is no other God,that it refers to ghinaa (singing ).”

This statement, he repeated three times. This view is unanimously supported by :
 the four Khalifas
the eminent Sahabaah
the four Imaams
and other reliable Islaamic scholars and authorities.

One hadith from the Bukhari Shareef, the most authentic Book of Hadith, further confirms unlawfulness of music and singing :

`There will be people of my Ummah who will seek to make lawful; fornication, wine-drinking and the use of ma`aazif ( musical instruments ).`

Detailed analysis of the arabic word `ma`aazif ` shows that it refers to musical instruments, the sounds of those musical instruments and singing with the accompaniment of instruments.
Closer analysis of the wordings of the Hadith establishes the prohibition of music Islam.

However, actually not all music is prohibited in Islam.
The characteristics of music which is allowed in Islam is :
1) songs during Feast (Hari Raya)
2) Singing accompanied by tambourines at the time of marriage with the purpose of announcing the marriage or enliven and encourage people to get married
3) Islamic Songs in the works that led to robust and hardworking, especially when containing prayers.
4) Songs of the character of faith or love of Allah, contains a call to Jihad, to improve morals, encourage unity, mutual among the ppl and saying about the Islamic policies.

Sami Yusuf : he preached ppl via his beautiful song's lyrics
Maher Zain : also preached others with his amazing song's lyrics
