    Yeah, it is. Get over it.

    Sûrah Luqmân Allâh Ta‘âlâ states:

    There are those amongst men who purchase vain speech without knowledge, to mislead from the Path of Allah and throw ridicule on (the Path). For them there is a humiliating chastisement.(Luqmân : 6)

    The words lahw al-hadîth in this âyah are interpreted by three of the eminent mufassirîn among the Sahâbah: ‘Abdullâh ibn Mas‘ûd, Jâbir ibn ‘Abdillâh and ‘Abdullâh ibn ‘Abbâs radiyallâhu ‘anhum as a reference to singing. This interpretation is narrated from seven different Tâbi‘în: Hasan al-Basrî, ‘Ikrimah, Sa‘îd ibn Jubayr, Mujâhid, ‘Amr ibn Shu`ayb, ‘Ali ibn Badhîmah and Makhûl. From this it can be deducted that in the early days the opinion holding this âyah to be a reference to singing was a widespread one, an opinion in fact, whose roots go back to three of those who received their education at the feet of Rasûlullâh sallallâhu `alayhi wasallam.(1)

    Allâh says in Sûrah Banî Isrâ’îl, addressing Shaytân:

    Arouse those whom you can amongst them with your voice; make assaults upon them with your cavalry and your infantry; share with them (their) wealth and children; and make promises to them. But Shaytân promises them nothing but deceit. (Banî Isrâ’îl : 64)

    In the tafsîr of Mujâhid ibn Jabr the "voice of Shaytân" that the âyah refers to is "song and flutes".(2)

    Sûrah an-Najm Allâh states:

    Do you wonder at this Recital? And will you laugh, and not weep, wasting your time with vanities? (an-Najm : 59-61)

    The words of Ibn ‘Abbâs as well as his student Mujâhid ibn Jabr are on record that by "wasting time in vanities" Allâh refers to singing.(3) Ibn ‘Abbâs comments that the word sâmidûn, in the old Himyarite dialect of Yemen, literally means "singing".

    Sahîh al-Bukhârî it narrated from Abû `Amir (or Abû Mâlik) al-Ash`arî that Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam said:َ

    Indeed, there will be in my Ummah such people who will regard fornication, silk, wine and musical instruments as permissible for themselves.(4)

    In the Sunan of Abû Dâwûd the narration goes on to state that those spoken of in this hadîth will call these things by other names in order to embellish their evil doings.(5)

    (2) In the Sunan of at-Tirmidhî it is narrated from ‘Imrân ibn Husayn that Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam said:

    In this Ummah there will be [people who will be] sunk into the earth, deformed, and upon whom stones will rain from heaven.

    The Sahâbî asked when that would be, and Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam replied:

    When singing girls and instruments of music will appear (become common), and wine will be drunk.(6)

    (3) In another hadîth documented in Talbîs Iblîs of Ibn al-Jawzî Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam is reported to have said:

    I have been sent to destroy the flute and the drum.(7)

    (4) Ibn ‘Abbâs narrates that Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam said:

    Truly Allâh has prohibited wine, gambling and the drum upon me.(8)

    (The word al-kûbah in this hadîth means a drum accord to the most widely accepted opinion.)

    (5) It is narrated from ‘Abdullâh ibn `Umar that once he was on a journey and heard the sound of a flute. He immediately blocked his ears with his fingers and moved away to where he could no longer the sound. He then informed his servant, Nâfi‘, that he had seen the Prophet sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam do likewise.(9)
