For years, Muslims are caught up in an argument over music being Haram or Halal in the light of Islam. Many references provided by scholars have declared music Haram. However, this ruling does not lay it to rest and every now and then people seem to argue about it.

He is once again on a roll with a new question: is music haraam in Islam? Have a great, great look at what Mr Waqar Zaka has to say about it…
