Singing the Qur’aan is apostasy

Question: What is the ruling on using a verse of the Qur’aan as a line in a poem? And what is the ruling on singing a verse  of the Qur’aan accompanied by music?

Answer: Praise be to Allaah.

Including a verse of the Qur’aan in a poem is not permitted, and singing a verse is even more forbidden. This is a form of mocking the Qur’aan, which amounts to apostasy from the religion of Islam.
