Is Music Haram?!

“Persuade whoever you can among them with your enchanting voice, win them over with your soldiers on horseback and on foot, share in their wealth and children and make promises; the promises of the Satan are only deceptions. But you will have no power and influence over My true servants, Your Lord will be their true Guardian.” [Quran 17:64-65]

Music these days contains a lot of nasty words in the lyrics, so there I can see how it’s haram. I don’t know about music back in the day of the Prophet, but I don’t think something soothing like modern piano music or a classical guitar is haram. I guess you could say it takes you away from Allah, but I don’t think all music should be labeled as haram. Music is as old as time.

Alcohol is also as old as time. That doesn’t make it halal.
