Why listening to Music in Ramadan is more forbidden

Listening to music is Haram, whether in Ramadan or at other times, but it is more forbidden in Ramadan, and it is a greater sin, because fasting does not only mean refraining from eating and drinking, rather it means that all physical faculties should refrain from disobeying Allah.

Allah says :

you who have believed ! Observing As-Sawm (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you that you may become Al-Muttaqoon (the pious).

Al-Baqarah 2:183

The saheeh Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) clearly indicates that listening to musical instruments is Haraam.

Al-Bukhari narrated in mu'allaq report that the Prophet ( peace and blessings be upon him) said:

"There will be among my Ummah People who regard adultery, silk, pork and musical instruments as permissible..."

Al-Tabaraani and al-Bayhagi said that this was a mawsool Report.

The Believer should make the most of this blessed month and turn to his Lord. He should Repent to Allah and give up Haraam things that he was in the habit of doing before Ramadan, so that Allah might accept his fast and set his affair's straight.
