assalamu alaikum, i just saw this comment and it reminded me of what my teacher once told me and i wanted to share it.

Often times we forget to mention that our beloved prophet said giving and receiving riba is the same crime. May Allah SWT give us the ability to stay away from RIBA.

im sorry but i dont agree with the music point, ofcourse you should listen to music with clean lyrics, but music in general are not haram, music or melodies are the roots of the quoran, tajwid is a great example of beautiful melodies and singing, islam is a religion of moderacion, so things shouldent be black or white, there is haram music ( that includs vulgar words and dances), but there is a lot of halal music, witch is even healthy for you.


This is basic stuff that most people know


this is amazing
