It says on your site that nasheeds are ok to listen to as long as there is no musical instrument or female voice. If you consider the two islamic principles; 1. Anything in the world is halal unless there is any evidence from Quran or Sunnah to say that it is haram and 2. Anything in WORSHIP is haram unless there is any evidence to say it is halal. Therefore i am wondering if the principle of worship that i have pointed out here whether this applys or not for nasheeds.....Is there any evidence that says nasheeds are permissable? as they are a form of worship....? So should we listen to them....? because if we havent been specifically told that this form of worship is permissable then how can we follow it? How can we know it would please Allah? isnt it just a thread of worship that has leaked out of the sufi sect?
InshAllah you will be able to clarify this for me
Assalam Alaikum Wa Rakhmatullah Wa Barakatu
