QUESTION:

I do taqleed of Agha Seestaani, and am wondering on the ruling concerning
the single 'I have no cannons that roar', that is being  publicised by Yusuf
Islam presently.  Although it is music, a lot of  Muslims are saying that it
is acceptable to listen because of the  nature and background of the
writing. Is this true, please help

ANSWER:

Music is music and it is haraam to listen to music. In Islam, the end does
not jutisy the means. A very basic principle in Islam is " LAA YUTAAULLAH
HAYTHU YU'SAA" - Allah cannot be obeyed if, in the process, a sin is
committed.

With Salaams and Duas

Mustafa Jaffer
