    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 614/499/B=1434) If the Nasheed (song) does not contain anything against the holy Quran and hadith rather it is as per the Shariah then there is no harm in reciting it. However, it is haram and unlawful to read it with music. The holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) came in this world to eradicate music. If we enliven it imitating the world then it is very sad.
