In Surah Luqmaan, Allah Taala states,
And from mankind are those that purchase futile speech in order to mislead others from the path of Allah. Under the commentary of this verse, ibn Abbaas [Radhiallaahu anhu] states, 'futile speech' refers to music and things related to it. (Durrul Manthoor vol.5 pg.307).
Nabi [Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam] mentions,
'There will be people from my Ummah who will seek to make lawful fornication, wearing of silk, wine and the use of musical instruments.' (Bukhaari vol.2 pg.837).
Rasulullah [Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam] states,
'A group of my Ummah will drink wine calling it by other than its real name. merry will be made for them through the playing of musical instruments and by the singing of females. Allah will cleave the earth under them and turn them into apes and swines.' (Abu Dawud vol.2 pg.519)
Rasulullah [Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam] further mentions,
'Music grows hypocrisy in the heart just as water causes crops to grow.' (Bayhaqi vol.10 pg.222).
