Listening to Qawwali

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: Kya qawwali sunna jaiz hai?

Translation: Is it permissible to listen to Qawwali?

A. Qawwali main gaane ke aalaat  (musical instruments) isti’maal hote hai jau bilkul jaa’iz nahin hai. Neez, qawwali main bahaut si baatein aisi kahi jaati hai, masalan Auliyaa ke baare main jau bilkul ghalat aur be asal hote hai. Qawwali sunna jaa’iz nahin hai.

Translation: Musical instruments, which are completely impermissible, are utilised in Qawwali. Furthermore, many things occur in Qawwali e.g. with regards to the saints, which are completely wrong and without anybasisi. It is not permissible to listen to Qawwali.

Wallaahu Ta’aala A’alam.
