Why is Duff halal and dhol Haram in Islam,Duff and dhol is almost same?Duff is also a musical instrument,isn't it?so,why is it halal and other musical instruments are Haram?
Daff is very slighter form of dhol
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There will be among my ummah people who will regard adultery, silk, alcohol and musical instruments as permissible.”
This hadeeth indicates that all musical instruments are haraam, including the daff.
However daff is very slighter form of dhol and at only three situations it was allowed which are: Eid, weddings, and when one who has been away returns.
The theme here is we should refrain from these as much as possible and slight daff can be allowed in limited situations.
