الْغِنَاء يُنْبِت النِّفَاق فِي الْقَلْب

 

“Music grows [up] hypocrisy in the heart.”

 

Abdullaah ibn Mas’oud (radhiyaAllaahu anhu)

Authenticated by Ibn Qayyim in Ighathatu-l-luhfaan 1/248 & Al-Albaani in ad-Dhaifa : 2430

 

And it is also authentically reported from As-Sha’bi that he said :

الْغِنَاء يُنْبِت النِّفَاق فِي الْقَلْب كَمَا يُنْبِت الْمَاء الزَّرْع ، وَالذِّكْر يُنْبِت الْإِيمَان فِي الْقَلْب كَمَا يُنْبِت الْمَاء الزَّرْع

“Music grows [up] hypocrisy in the heart; just as the water  stems up the crops.

And Dhikr grows [increases] ‘Eemaan in the heart; just as the water stems up the crops.”

 

Al-Albaani declared it to be good : Tahreem Aaalatu-t-tarab
