Meaning of lahwī music

Q. What is meant by lahwī music?  And how best can one recognize it?
A:  Lahwī music which strays from the way of Allah is that which due to its characteristics keeps human beings away from Allah, the Sublime, and away from moral merits and drives them towards sinful acts and carelessness. Its recognition rests with the common people.
