Assalamulaikum. I wanted to know about music. I want to do a youtube channel on a racing game (asphalt 8). I want to use some non-lyrical music as intro. The game's races are full of engine sounds and some sound (not lyrical music. Its a 1 sec sound. I don't if its considered as music) So, now i need to know if the non-lyrical 15-20sec music is halal or haram. I also need to know if the engine sounds and sounds at starting and ending are haram or halal? If you want i can give a link of a video for example

  • Link of the example video (watching 3-5 minutes is enough to understand my question) : youtu.be/DYZqtkJR470 Jul 18, 2020 at 8:11

    Question titles should be related to the content. Everybody thinks his question is important. Writing in capital letters is mainly regarded as shouting (inappropriate behavior).

The topic of music is a big topic among the muslim community some ulama says that there is no problem with music as long as it uses only the daff, others say music is haram, and some says that music and songs are halal, but as long as they contain lyrics or such that are porhipted by islam like swear words or the mention of sex and alchol.

Allah knows best

Hope that answers your question and sorry for my bad english.


Car engine sound is not haram.....The music which you are referring to at the start of the video is halal if no musical intrument is used except duff. Personal advice:do not waste your time on this... Hadith

It was narrated from Ibn 'Abbas (رضي الله عنه) that he said: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

"Good health and free time [are] two blessings from Allah that many people do not make good use of."

Its isnad is saheeh, al-Bukhari (6412)]

Musnad Ahmad 2340 Arabic/English book : Book 25, Hadith 2340 Musnad Ahmed

    Thanks for your advice. By the way, what were you referring as "duff"? If you watch the video, at the start of race and at the end of race, it has a sound. Is it considered as music? Jul 18, 2020 at 9:53
  • Bro search duff on google..its an muscial instrument which is permissable in islam.at the start of the race i only heard the voice of sportcars not any music

  • The sound at the start and end of race is not from any musical instrument as per my view..plz do consult a person who know about religion and differentiating between musical instrument...P.S i am not an music speciallist so i am sure that is musical intrument or not
