(1) "Allah Mighty and Majestic sent me as a guidance and mercy to believers and commanded me to do away with musical instruments, flutes, strings, crucifixes, and the affair of the pre-Islamic period of ignorance."

(2) "On the Day of Resurrection, Allah will pour molten lead into the ears of whoever sits listening to a songstress."

(3) "Song makes hypocrisy grow in the heart as water does herbage."

(4) "This community will experience the swallowing up of some people by the earth, metamorphosis of some into animals, and being rained upon with stones." Someone asked, "When will this be, O Messenger of Allah?" and he said, "When songstresses and musical instruments appear and wine is held to be lawful."

(5) "There will be peoples of my Community who will hold fornication, silk, wine, and musical instruments to be lawful ...." -- 'Umdat al-Salik r40.0

Now do you really think ALL music is bad? I do not. In fact I think music can be very spiritual. Of course there is bad music abounding. But it has been shown in plant studies that plants grow towards classical music, and grow away from rock music and wither. So it is with people. It cannot be possible that all music is bad. Music can open the spiritual centers of the brain I think and can be very holy. Rock music and other types can encourage evil thoughts. So one must be selective as with all things. If one cannot be selective and restrain, then one must avoid.

I think it's important to know what the song mean.
