[Know well O True-Seeker!] The origin of Sarood (music-and-warble) is Kufr. In addition, it has been a practice and tradition of the Kuffaar and the People of Zunnaar and Hell. They used to sing and play music in front of the idols in the idol temples and the mid Station of the Sarood is of the enemy of the Deen, the Satan, and the utmost Station of the Sarood is of the damned Dajjaal!
That person, who, upon listening the Sarood and due to the voice of the singer, starts ripping his clothes, rolling in dust, yelling aloud, crying, weeping, and shedding tears due to the movement in heart and the intoxication and eruption and zeal of love and due to the jag of the condition. All this Station of imperfectness and the immaturity and incompleteness is due to the Salb (disqualified) Tareeqat because of desires of Nafs. Such person does not know the Reality of God and is deprived of the Marifat of Lord. Since the outset of singing and playing music is from imbibing alcohol, eating Haraam (inadmissible), and adultery etcetera and playing chess and doing indecent works, therefore the Curse of Allah and His Angels and the entire people is upon such a assembly. On the other hand, that gathering in which, people Remember Allah Almighty before recitation of the Holy Quran, hymn the Praise of Lord, acquire the Ilm of Fiqah and reading such books, which are related to the Holy Quran and Hadis, remaining clean and pure, offering Assalaat (Prayers) and Absorbing in the worship and remaining engrossed in the Zikr [of Allah Almighty]; the Mercies and blessings of Allah descend upon this assembly of the People-of-Allah (Ahl-e-Allah). Hence, the mutual association of the People of Curse and the People of Mercy does not prove lasting.
The Arifeen remain Mast even in absence of singing and music,
And they feel Sukr and Masti only through the Wisaal of Lord,
The intrepid-devotee Arifeen Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destroyed in Allah) the Privy (and Insider) People of the Secret do not want life after they have played the game of death,
Instead, their desire is this that they should remain only Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destroyed in Allah),
He, who always remains Drowned in the Zikr of Allah Almighty,
The thought of singing and listening to music does never come in his mind.
[O Real-Seeker!] Lo! Allah Almighty has created man in order that he should worship Him and identify Him. Hence, (He created) head to be laid in Prostration (and) tongue to hymn His Praise and Extol as there is no room for the satanic Qeel-O-Qaal and He created heart for His Remembrance and created wisdom to think over [the Calibers of Allah] and (He created) the Beneficence of Ilm for attaining unto His Marifat.
