This is an issue on which scholars have differed.
The vast majority of scholars throughout time claim that music is haraam, and cite the references in the other answers. Islam QA says:
The four Imams, their followers and the vast majority of earlier
Muslim scholars are of the view that musical instruments are haraam,
to such an extent that it was ...

Let me start with an example. Just because Heroin and Cocaine weren't there at the time of Prophet(pbuh), it doesn't mean it isn't covered by Shari'ah. Since they too turn the people insane just like alcohol, they are automatically condemned.
Sunan Ibn Majah 4020
It was narrated from Abu Malik Ash’ari that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ)said:

I think this question is something like: Is knife Haram?
Having most of objects themselves is not Haram. Our usage of them can be Halal or Haram. If we want knife to eat fruits or kitchen work, it's Halal, but if we desire to injure some innocent, it's Haram.
Auto-tuner can be used to play Quran, Halal music or Haram music. Having it is not Haram, but the ...
Definition: Music includes sounds and songs which take the human to a world that he
cannot explain about. It dominates the human's nerves in a way that
sometimes makes him cry and some other times makes him laugh,
sometimes makes the human organs move unconsciously, sometimes excites
love and passion and sometimes makes a slave out of the human and ...
You may be reading too much into the situation.
It could very well be a form of punishment for a sin (I am making the assumption here that the singers and actors you are referring to get involved in works that are not permissible Islamically) as Allah ﷻ has informed us that punishment for our bad deeds may be brought forward to this world:
First of all listening to music is itself a sin.
It is second thing that you are going to add lyrics. You are going to help promote the music in this way. Its bigger than listening to music because you are going to promote a sin.
Imraan Bin Husain (radhiyallahu anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: "In this Ummah will be ...
First of all, it is known that when in islam Musical instruments are considered Haram, thats because of the RHYTHM and Musical TUNES created by those instruments.
So, Logically, if nasheeds have similarity with tunes and music, then they are surely considerd a form of music. But this is just my personal view and i am not a scholar. ...

It seems that your quote is a part of a longer hadith which can be found in Musnad Ahamd (Musnad al-Ansar on the authority of abu Ummamah) and in at-Tabarni's al-Mu'jam al-Kabir. Abu Bakr al-Haythami quoted it in his majma' az-Zawaaid مجمع الزاوئد ومنبع الفوائد without giving a qualification.
So yes the hadith exists. However both narrations I could ...
The following are some of the most prominent scholars in our history who, deemed music permissible:
Abdullah bin Ja’far bin Abi Talib (al-Aqd al-Fareed 6/12)
Sh. Abu Hamed al-Ghazali (vol. 6 pg. 1150 al-Ihyaa’)

There is difference between music and song. Musical instruments are haraam not songs. Songs without music, without wrong intention and without wrong content is allowed in Islam.
Azaan is not really a song. It is offered melodiously to call people for prayer.

What is the ruling on Singing the ...
Not every kind of music is called "HARAM". What makes a music "HARAM" is not who songs or who plays music. It is the feeling and somehow the imagination that comes through it. For example in Iran, According to Ruhullah Khomeini's thoughts, a music that is made to honor the ones who lost their bodies in war for islam, is halal. But the music which ...
If you waste all of your time on instrument or playing video games or sleeping etc. it is not allowed. Muslims have daily jobs and they can not live like plants. If you only playing an instrument as hobby it is not problem, you can go on and try to stay away from woman voice, especially sensual woman voice when you playing or listening music.
Also you can ...
The Quran does not prohibit musical instruments in any explicit or non-explicit sense.
The issue is disputed through secondary sources as per alleged sayings of Rasulullah.
Muslims throughout the ages have differed on the issue of instruments because of the multiplicity of narrations reaching us and their authenticity not being 100% established.
There seems to be unanimous consensus that music is haraam across most mainstream schools of thought, Shia or Sunni.
However I think that may not be the intent of your question; Rather I can surmise that your question is that if music makes one think of God, should it be allowed?
There are two aspects to this question: the legalistic one and the "hikmah" ...
