Reciting Nasheed in Masjid


Is it allowed to pray (sing) a nasheed in the masjid in the jalsah for the children madrassa? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Yes, it would be permissible for nasheeds to be recited in the Masjid on the condition that the content of the nasheed is Islamic, e.g. the words of the nasheed consist of beneficial advice, encouragement to do good deeds, praise of Allah ﺗﻌﺎﻟﻰ, etc. Furthermore, the recital of nasheeds must be free of any music and singing.1
