is being a bts fan haram ?

As’Salamu ‘Alaykum

i am a sixteen year old girl and i am obsessed with a boy band called “bts” i talk about them more than I have of Allah SWT and Prophet Mohammed PBUH ( i always say astaghfirullah when such thoughts come a lot instead Allah SWT and Prophet Mohammed PBUH ), bts are seven boys and all in their twenties and they are not like any other boy band, they spread positivity through their music ( no bad words, reminding people to love themselves ) and also have done and are still doing charity work. is it okay to be a

  1. a bts fan
  2. attend bts concerts
  3. attend bts related gatherings
  4. my friends parents told her that if she’s a fan of someone and loves them a lot and their a christian on the day of judgement she will go to hellfire with them. is this true ?

their are many muslim girls and boys who are doing the same thing obsessing over “bts” and forgetting Allah SWT and their are some like me who are seeking for answers if it is okay to be a fan. no obsessing but just a fan of seven boys who are singers spreading positive messages.

yubarikuk Allah wu wa ʿalaykumu s-salām.

  • “And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (i.e. music, singing) to mislead (men) from the path of Allah…” (Luqmaan 31:6) and you still argue over a band is halal or Haram. – Shromi Sep 6 at 3:36

    It is haram to listen to music alone why would it be okay to support the creators of music? There are other ways of spreading positivity that you can find on YouTube or other platforms and you may enjoy just try not to step out of the line of Islam. Surah 2:216 “But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.“ – L o a d i n g . . . Sep 6 at 20:57

There is no explicit mention of music and musicality and certainly not bands being haram in the Qur'an, nor in Hadith, some interpetations of verses correspond to outright banning of music on the basis of it poisoning the mind, certainly. But the interpetations are not largely agreed upon nor enforced in Islam.

As long as you watch out for your own internal beliefs you are not doing wrong in Islam's right.
