Assalamu alaikum

Yaa Akhi

I'm a little concerned about mobile phone ringtunes.
I was in the Masjid un Nabi in February this year. During salaat, I could hear mobile phones going off, in the mosque of the prophet.
Once, the mobile was very close to me, and the ringtone was "We wish you a merry Christmas!" (honestly, I mean this) I was so sad.

Here's a quote from's scholars with regard to this subject.
Please be careful and guard your eemaan.

Question :

Is there anything wrong with using mobile phones which play tunes, because these tunes are a kind of music, or not? In fact it is possible to avoid this problem by using a mobile telephone whose ringing tone is a verse of Qur’aan.

Answer :

Praise be to Allaah.

haraam, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) stated that musical instruments are haraam when he said: “There will be among my ummah people who will regard as permissible adultery, silk, alcohol and musical instruments…” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5590.

This hadeeth indicates that musical instruments are haraam in two ways. Firstly, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said “they will regard as permissible,” which clearly indicates that the things mentioned – including musical instruments – are forbidden in sharee’ah but those people will regard them as permissible. Secondly, musical instruments are mentioned alongside things which are definitively forbidden, namely adultery and alcohol. If they were not haraam, they would not be mentioned alongside these things. (al-Silsilah al-Saheehah by al-Albaani, 1/140-141).

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: This hadeeth indicates that musical instruments are haraam. (Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 11/535).

It is possible to do without these haraam tunes by setting the phone to ring with an ordinary tone, or something else that is not regarded as a musical tune.

The Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas was asked about the ruling on musical tunes on mobile phones. They replied:

It is not permissible to use musical tunes for telephones or any other devices, because listening to musical instruments is haraam, as is indicated by the evidence of sharee’ah. It is possible to do without them by using the ordinary ringing tone. And Allaah is the Source of strength.

Majallat al-Da’wah, issue no. 1790, p. 42.

The questioner mentioned that it is possible to set the ringing tone as a verse of Qur’aan, but it is better not to do that, because there is the fear that this may be a kind of disrespect towards the Holy Qur’aan. Allaah revealed the Qur’aan to be a Book of guidance showing the right way, to be recited and pondered and acted upon, not to be a means of alerting people. It is sufficient for the questioner to set his phone to an ordinary ringing tone. And Allaah knows best.

Assalaamu alaikum.

It is quite common throughout Saudi, including mosques, and even the two hear anywhere and everywhere (even during the salat)...the various musical ringtones of the mobiles going off. Aoudhubillah.

SubhanAllah...sadly the Arabs in a general sense are quite ignorant (not in the case that they do not know, but rather in the case that they other words, arrogant) to this point.

It is quite a contest in this society for them to have the 'latest' in ringtones...whether they be of arab music or otherwise. Including songs which are even of a christian nature. SubhanAllah.

But to change the tone of the ring to either the adhaan or any verses of the Quran...would be just as bad...perhaps worse. I mean...imagine the adhaan or Quran verse recited as the mobile rings when u'r in the bathroom, or something. As well, we are told directly from Allah in the Quran...that when we hear the Quran recited, we are to become quiet and listen. That would not be the case with the mobile. It would go off, and we would answer to speak to who is calling. We would not be paying attention to the recitation as such. In other words, it would be a case of disrespect to the recitation of the Quran.

And Allah knows best.

Om Mohammed.
