Listening to singing

What is the ruling on listening to songs?

Listening to songs is prohibited, especially when this is accompanied by musical instruments and the meaning of the words contain prohibited words. Then, it is not permissible to listen to it. There are many narrations concerning the prohibition of singing, and that is what the people of knowledge hold most correct. In Bukhaary, and other books, there is the narration,

From among my followers, there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks, and the use of musical instruments, as lawful.” (Bukhaary 5590)

Also, “Whoever listens to a female singer, will have lead poured into their ears on the Day of Judgment.” (Al-‘Ilal Al-Mutanaahiyah, The endless issues p. 1310) There are many more proofs which are mentioned by Ibn Al-Qayyim (may Allaah’s Mercy be upon him) in his book Ighaathatu-L-Lahafaan, ‘Saving the parched person,’ so please refer to it.
