Can you listen to music during Ramadan is one of the most popular question being asked during the starting phase of Ramadan, as people realize that now they have to quit listening to music for a month.
Nowadays, people are habitual of listening to music while working, driving, walking or cooking that is the reason they find it difficult when it comes to leaving the music for a month.
Many people say by listening to music they feel stress-free and it relaxes the mind also but they must also understand that Durood Sharif recitation and other supplications have better results in these criteria.
However, listening to music during Ramadan or without Ramadan is forbidden in Islam and has big punishments. If you are habitual to music you may listen to the Naat and Hamd which is according to Islam and without music.
Listening to music is a sin and it’s a bigger sin when you listen to it during Ramadan. So better to leave it if you are habitual of it and focus on worshipping Allah by praying Salah, reciting Quran and Durood.
