Listening to tilaawat on one's headphones when music is being played in a gym

Q: If music is being played somewhere and a person doesn't want to listen to the music and he plays tilawat in his headphones to avoid the sound of the music, is it a correct thing if he has no authority to stop that music?

I go to the gym and they play music there. So I listen to tilawat in a loud voice in my headphones to avoid the music. Is it a correct thing ?

A: Yes.

The gym itself is not a right place for muslims to be. The same gymming can be done at home. Get an instructor to teach you what to do, and do it in the privacy of your home.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
