Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh. 

When we compare at least the outward appearances of the artists of the so called ‘Islamic nasheeds’ with the contents of the nasheeds, love for Allah and His Rasulullah etc., there is no collaboration. One on side, the artists express love for Allah and His Rasul and on the other side their outward appearance and conduct is completely contrary to the laws of Allah and the Mubarak Sunnah of Rasulullah صلي الله عليه وسلم.

Their nasheeds contains music which is clearly haram. Their dressing is against the Sunnah. Many are clean shaven. If the artists intend to inculcate the love for Allah and His Rasul, their outward appearance and conduct would be in conformity to Deen. It is only then that their expressions will be effective. How can a person violating the laws of Shariah and conducts himself against the Sunnah expect to inculcate the love for Allah and His Rasul in the hearts of people? Such an expression is a type of hypocrisy and could only be interpreted as using Deen for commercial gain and benefit. العياذ بالله

The artist in the first video is a Pakistani Singer and a film actor.1 The video in reference is originally a song with music. The video has been edited to remove the music.2 It is not permissible to listen to it.

The artist in the second video is from the deviated Barelwi sect.2 It is not permissible to listen to his ‘nasheeds’ as generally he expresses his incorrect beliefs in his ‘nasheeds’.
