Answers to common questions about Islam.

What is nasheed and why do you have them on your page. Isn't all Music haram?

Nasheed is generally considered to be any song that praises the prophet saw, his life, attributes etc. There is generally disagreement about "music". Some scholars say nasheed music is ok, others say just nasheed with drum is ok, others say just singing nasheed is ok and still others say all of it is haram. It might be a good idea to ask your local imam his opinion on the issue and to explain the different issues involved and the general evidences on this subject
