Q: As Salaamu Alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh respected Imam,
I work at the Retail and they play music the entire shift. when i deal with customers,I am not able to concentrate on the music. however, when the bussiness is slow and nothing to do at work, Shaytan always make me listen to it. my question is, can i recite dua,Qur’an or make Istighfarah in my heart while the Music is on?

- Request them to lower the volume, if making such a request is beyond your control, you are welcome to recite whatever is necessary to help keep you away from the ploys that would favor you to forget your Creator.
- Read that which is necessary in a soft tone, do not cause a disturbance to those around you.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
