Q 1: A dispute arose between me and my family concerning the permissibility of
listening to drums while being beaten,
what is the ruling in this regard?
It is not permissible to beat or listen to drums. It is only permissible for women to beat Duff (a tambourine-like instrument without bells) to announce marriage in the presence of women only.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
