Q: A person works as a trainer and an international referee in some kind of sport. His work could require his presence in clubs where haram kind of music and singing are played. Is it permissible for him to carry on with this work, especially, if it provides him with some income where jobs are hard to come by?
A: There is no harm in this person's work, albeit it is haram for him to listen to ghina’ and lahw music. In circumstances where he is compelled to enter places where the haram type of singing and music are taking place, he is allowed to do so, provided he avoids listening to them. There is, though, no problem in hearing such singing and music involuntarily.
