Abstract

The Quran, due to its unique rhythmic style of expression, seems to have a deep connection with music and elegance of voice, on the other hand, Islam has various teachings regarding the prohibition of music and songs. In this context, there has been a debate among Islamic scholars as to whether it is permissible to use the principles of music, Muqāmāt and melodies in the recitation of the Quran? Some scholars are convinced of the Sharīʻah legitimacy of the use of music, Muqāmāt and melodies in the recitation of the Quran but some scholars do not consider it permissible. This study is an attempt to discover the factual Sharʻīah stance on the subject by analyzing the arguments of both groups of scholars. It supports the viewpoint of the opponents, but also tries to reconcile the two positions. It maintains that there is nothing wrong with reciting the Quran in a beautiful voice but it must be free from those forms of music which are not adored in Islamic Sharīʻah.
