Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah


Asalamualaikum, can we sing a song when we are alone, or just the tune of that song without any musical instruments? 



In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

If some poetic compositions are recited in a pleasing voice, and the reciting person is not a woman, and the subject of the poetry recited is also not vulgar or indecent, then it is permissible to recite it.  (Maariful Qur’an p.36 v.7)
