There is a profound interrelation between music and religion and they are connected to that extent that religion looks as if without music it cannot imagine its existence. When you are practicing a particular religion music provides an impetus to your spiritual practise and you can uplift yourself to another world while listening and singing to the enchanting music.

Though there is no defined reason that can be specified for the interrelation of music and religion, when you listen to verses of any religion they are being expressed in musical form. Probably the reason behind the phenomenon is that the religious gurus would have found that people connect better with music than prose and that made them recite the verses in poetic form. There are numerous examples of this and you can take the example of Sufism, it is completely religious music and people connect themselves well with the music.
