Salaamun alaykum, 
	
	The reply to the following question was kindly provided by 
Moulana Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi.

QUESTION:

	Is it permissible to "hear" music that is played while one does
aerobic exercise? 
	If one is an instructor, one must prepare the tape (of songs) to
be used during a session.  Is it permissible to do so and use this tape as
the instructor?  (The music is being used to motivate the participants to
keep their pace while exercising.)

ANSWER:

	By keeping in mind the opinion of the majority of mujtahideen, it
is not permissible to listen to the music while doing aerobic exercise.
Exercise is not a modern phenomenon; it has been done without music and it
can be done without music. 
	
	The rule would be the same even if you are an instructor.  Surely
human creativity can produce other ways of motivating the participants in
place of music! 

Sayyid M. Rizvi
