    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 489/489=L)

     

    The most important reason is that the Quran and Hadith have prohibited it:

    صوتان ملعونان فی الدنیا والآخرۃ مزمار عند نعمۃ و رنۃ عند مصیبۃ

    The Ulama have described that music has been declared unlawful by this verse of the Quran:

    و من الناس من یشتری لھو الحدیث لیضل عن سبیل اللہ بغیر علم و یتخذھا ھزواً (الآیۃ)

    والحاصل ان الآیۃ حرمت کل الملاھی الملھیۃ عن عبادۃ اللہ تعالی، منھا الغناء والمزامیر (احکام القرآن: 3/185)

    And when it has been proved haram by the Quran and Hadith there is no need for any other proof.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
