It is said that music is the food of soul but i do not agree with this proverb at all still music haunts me too. In fact nothing is wrong in this universe. The use of any thing make its bad or good. Muslim Mystic leaders of India used qawali to spread Islam in Indian Sub continent. Silsila-e-Chistiya is still using qawali to attract the nonbelievers in India. Allama Javeed Gamadi has also a very moderate view about the position of music in Islam. What about religious qawalis of legend Qawal Nusrat Fatah Ali Khan. Leave it as its not our main topic as we are not discussing the position of Music in Islam.

If you have talent in Music then you must study this subject to the maximum level. Majority of pop singers have not got training about music and singing. Music is a part of fine arts. Its a tradition of our soil too. Biggest musicians of the world Amir Khusro and Tansen were also Indian. Even after the creation of India, Hindus are not Indian geographically as Indus river flows in Pakistan so real Indians (People living along the river Indus) are also Pakistani People. In fact Pakistan has snatched the identity of all Indian people and now they are so called Indians. We have also snatched the identity of their religion as word Hindu was derived from Indo. Its an irony but 100% true.
Junaid Jamsheed was a pop singer in Pakistan who joined the Tablighi Jamaat few years before and announced that singing is haram (Forbidden) in classical Islam and made a promise with nation and his inner self that he will not sing a song in future. He announced categorically that music of all kinds is haram (Forbidden) in Islam but on 14th August 2015 he sang a national song (Dil dil Pakistan Jan Jan Pakistan) on many channels. I am too his great fan and now i have also realized that some sort of music of was too played on the arrival of our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) in Madina. So it seems that if we use the music for the right purpose like Junaid Jamshaid and people of Madina the great, then its allowed. Being a fundamentalist and true Muslim you can only sing Hamd -e- Baree Tala, Naat Sharif , national, religious and war songs.
