Music for children
Fatwa No: 81408


Is music okay for children, for example, in learning the Arabic alphabet or other Islamic principles?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

All kinds of music are forbidden. Indeed there is nothing good in music. So, if the child grows up with it, he will like it too much and will be addicted to it. Allah, the great and Almighty, has made legal a variety of useful means for acquiring knowledge. So, one should stick to these means and leave out anything that is forbidden by Allah.
Allah knows best.
