Addicted to Music

Q: I have been listening to rave music. I don't know how to stop as the music gets better as the years go by. Please advice me. Is everything finished for me?

A.
Never ever lose hope in the Mercy of Allah Ta'aala. Irrespective of how big a sin is or how long it has been committed, when a person sincerely turns to Allah seeking forgiveness, he is immediately forgiven. The very fact that this is troubling your conscience is a good sign. You need to build up the courage and start turning towards Allah to take you out of this. Ask Him regularly and He will make a way out for you. Ponder over the spiritual harms of music and sin in general. Connect yourself to a pious Aalim in your area whom you will be comfortable with. You need to spend time in his company and from him understand the harms of music and the benefits of obedience unto Allah. Changes will not happen overnight. Stick with the Aalim and after a while you will begin to notice the difference within yourself. If you are not sure who to turn to, notify us of the area you live in and if we know of someone in your area, we can suggest the name to you.

You firstly need to cut off from such company that will entice you towards rave music. Listen a lot to recitation of the Holy Qur'aan, on CD’s, tapes etc.

May Allah Ta'aala assist you and grant you success in eradicating this problem, Aameen.
