Muslims – I may revert in the future. Been guitar playing four years & its my life. Is this hadith authentic?

I know hadith that sed ppl wil try 2 make sex, alcohol & instruments lawful but not sure on its authenticity? I wont write about anything except God. One Muslim sed he likes Coldplay and Keane but why? I thought only duff is allowed?
Everything I do must be out of worship, and ALL music feeds my spirituality. But I know I must write about Islam only.
Drums/guitar haram?

51
We have made it lawful for you to listen to music
and singing. Take heed, however, lest listening thereto
should cause you to overstep the bounds of propriety
and dignity. Let your joy be the joy born of My Most
Great Name, a Name that bringeth rapture to the
heart, and filleth with ecstasy the minds of all who have
drawn nigh unto God. We, verily, have made music
as a ladder for your souls, a means whereby they may
be lifted up unto the realm on high; make it not,
therefore, as wings to self and passion. Truly, We are
loath to see you numbered with the foolish.”

(Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas)
This hadith is too hopeful to be true I guess, but a Muslim stated them in an answer to one of my last questions…he also put—

Thank thou God that thou art instructed in music and melody, singing with pleasant voice the glorification and praise of the Eternal, the Living. I pray to God that thou mayest employ this talent in prayer and supplication, in order that the souls may become quickened, the hearts may become attracted and all may become inflamed with the fire of the love of God!”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Tablets of Abdu’l-Baha v3, p. 511)

“O thou attracted one!

Thy letter was an evidence of the happiness and rejoicing of thy heart and soul and a proof of knowing the True One and severing thyself from all else save Him. When thou beholdest with the eye of Truth then thou wilt realize that in this world neither known or unknown, neither kind father or beloved son, mother or sister, help us. No persons assist except the Benevolent Almighty…
Whilst there r many supporting the help of others, jihad of all kind round the world, it seems too moderate of nasheeders and kinda untrustworthy like they’ve gone the wrong path being on TV singing songs. Why is that? Don’t we have better to do as Muslims? To me it’s about serving Allah, not about living in leisure but doing what Allah wants you to do.

Also on music – try to understand that music is a gift; an art i have. Like Cat Stevens said he had a problem but he’s playing again now. But it seems different from Islam. He also dresses more casual like the kuffar sometimes and I don’t trust that. I don’t even believe living in this country of Britain because it isn’t Sharia so it’s haram to live here and so many Muslims would disagree though I know…and my taxes would go to the government & kill my brothers around the world, I wouldn’t want that. I thought I cud move to Saudi Arabia which has the perfect Sharia. Harsh yh but thats all bout jihad (struggle) as a gd pious slave of
Thanks for your answer 😉

It’s just this idea of playing guitar…it seems too modern; too moderate coz so many Muslims are typical like that and they aren’t good Muslims. They dress like the kuffar in jeans and that and they condemn ppl fighting for God’s cause like “yeah they are extremists, they aren’t muslims” and they don’t analyse the political situation. How are we then to know when to answer the call of God?
Thanks for your answe dude 😉 you like jazz and rock just like me! Also I don’t get what being moderate and that is. I mean, isn’t a Muslim a Muslim? That’s like those who try to say this is the way and the moderates are just hyprocrites. Well, I tend to agree with these “radicals” as they are really good practicing Muslims and they know what they’re doing. I mean, why be moderate by living under a different law than Sharia? Isn’t this blatantly haram? Sharia all the way! Our taxes will go to the government, which makes us combatants against our own Ummah in Iraq and Palestine and elsewhere according to Islamic law!
The Taliban brought Sharia to Afghanistan, and are currently fighting defending it from occupiers.

No, it doesn’t make you a kuffar to dress like them, I never said that.
Oh and the Taliban and others do NOT oppress harmony and peace between fellow man. They just don’t turn the other cheek. Is that bad?
