Would Watching YouTube Videos Be Considered Haram Due To The Background Music

04 Dec 2021 Ref-No#: 4089

Assalam o Alaikum

I’m quite confused because a lot of scholars say that it is Haram to listen to Music and most YouTube videos have music being played in the background. Let’s say if I were watching an educational video teaching me math and there is background music, would that be
considered Haram? Or if I’m watching a compilation video showing some skills by a specific player with music being played in the background. Is this Haram?


Wa ʿAlaykum Salām Wa Raḥmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh

Kindly refer to Fatwaa Ref-No#: 3219 regarding the prohibition of music.

It should also be noted that the prohibition of music in general and includes videos as well whether they are educational or not.

Furthermore, the internet is brimming with educational videos. You may therefore opt for other suitable alternatives that do not contain music.
