786 Boyz’ songs

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Assalamu Alaikum

786 Boyz sing Islamic songs with every possible instrument. There are learned people (and some Ulamaa in USA) who say if it’s a good message in the song which can change someone then it’s Halal.

What is the answer to this as I am very sure that the songs they sing are no different in style that pop songs.

If you can please clearify how it would be to say those songs are halal and also what you make of this. May Allah reward you.

I would appreciate if you heard a tiny preview yourself to comment better on this. http://www.786boyz.com/ (Automatically loads on this page after a few minutes)

Answer
Bismihi Ta’ala

After listening to a sample of the songs sung by the group in question, it can be said in full confidence that it is not permissible to listen to their Music. There is usage of many Haraam instruments.

To justify it with the reasoning they give stems from lack of knowledge. Should we accomodate for people by committing Haraam? Is this what Rasoolullah did when inviting people towards Islam?

I cannot recall any instances in the life of Rasoolullah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, in which he invited people towards Islam through musical instruments.

This sort of justification is ignorance and to refute it would also be senseless due to its obvious incorrectness. Should we start to make all Haraam Halaal so it sends a good message out to others? This is Shaytaans deception.

May Allah guide us all.
