Using music while making zikr

Q: I am very much inspired by tassawuf and zikr of Allah and the guidance of Auliyas in our lives. I want to know, did any of the Auliyas use music while doing zikr of Allah? I have seen a video of a Shaikh who uses music in zikr. Please throw some light about the truth.

A: No. In fact the auliyaa had prohibited this. Look at the works of Hadhrat Nizaamuddeen Auliyaa (rahmatullahi alaih).

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