Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu,
i am working on a song with an artist and i want to know if i have the permission to make one hitsong without thinking that i am doing something wrong. Can you also pray for me that i will be successful with my projects? I really appreciate your Dua.
While all `ulama agree that all forms of music (lyrics) that contain pagan, sensual themes, or subliminal messages are clearly forbidden, a large group of scholars considers all forms of music free of such themes and messages as permissible.
