During the Abbasi era in Baqdad, music was considered as one of the parts of people's life and paid attention as a means of entertainment by different social classes. The special classes, that have higher social position, played an effective role in developing music by applying the musicians in their houses and supporting them. In such classes, applying the singer and player bound women showed their power and the importance of their social position. As a result, some governments were known as musicians themselves. Also, Music was well known between the public. Various communities of society like the tailors and cup-therapists were familiar with music. However, according to religion and some narratives dealing with music is forbidden, so the social approach toward this art was not much appreciated in Baghdad. The presented research is studying about the status of the art of music between different social classes in Baghdad. The research method is descriptive-analytic and is organized based on the sources and references of the existing researches.
