Q 10: Is it permissible to sell cassette tapes with songs, like those of Um Kalthum, Farid Al-Atrash and others?

A: Selling such tapes is Haram (prohibited) as the songs they contain are impermissible to be sung or listened to. The Prophet (peace be upon him) is authentically reported to have said: If Allah forbids something (to be consumed), He, with greater reason, forbids its price (i.e. selling it). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
