Playing music and songs to children-heading
I work in a school for very small children (between 2 years and 6 years of age) and we have various exercises to help the children develop co-ordination between mind and body. One of these exercises is “Walking on the line” in which children are expected to keep balance and poise and walk gracefully carrying various objects in their hands to help develop grace, poise and help improve concentration. To make it more interesting we play very soft and soothing music on audio cassette. Besides this we have various songs for children which help in language development and gives a lot of information. These poems and songs are both in Urdu and English. The question I wish to ask is that a few of my colleagues object to the use of music as they say it is Haram in Islam.?
Music is not permissible according to a number of Ahadith of the Holy Prophet ﷺ, therefore, you should avoid it in the exercise you have referred to. However, poems or songs of educational nature can be recited.
In operation Theaters it is compulsory for us to wear pajamas and loose shirts. What is the ruling of Shariah on this?
It is permissible to wear Pajama and loose shirts during operations. However, the Pajamas should be above the ankle.
