Latest Fatwawawawa: The Prophet Disapproves of Um Kulthum.
Question: Is it permissible to sell music (audio) cassettes, like cassettes of Umm Kulthoom and Fareed al-Atrash and that which is similar to them?
Response: Selling these cassettes is haraam; because of that which they contain of music and songs which is haraam, and listening to it is haraam. And the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said:
“Indeed if/when Allah has declared something haraam, then buying and selling it is (also) haraam”. (thanks Aida)
PS "Haraam" is Impermissible from the religious point of view.
