Is listening to acapella music haram (forbidden)?


Is listening to acapella music haram? So if I take a song that has music and strip away the actual musical instruments, is it still haram to listen to? This music I’m asking about has no explicit words whatsoever.


If there is no music at all, then the only remaining issue is the lyrics and the singer. A male listener cannot listen to a female singer, and the lyrics should not contain un-Islamic themes.
