I've heard recently that certain musical instruments are forbidden by
Islam. There is nothing in the Qur'an that I can find relating to this
matter, and the Hadith that I've read were fairly vague.
My question is this: are in fact certain musical instruments haram,
and if so, which instruments or types of instruments are they?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
