I have multiple questions.

1) Is it permissible to just read lyrics of a song without music or tune, just reading it?

2) What is the rule regarding the background score/music that is in movies, youtube videos and even news videos etc, is it haraam?

3) (If point 2 is haram) If I read lyrics and if I add this soft background music, will it become haraam?

4) By reading these lyrics of song, will I be influencing others to check the source artist, which might lead to haram? Or am I thinking too much?

1. Yes so long as it’s something useful for your spiritual, social etc life.

2. Listening to the background music is haram

3. It’s not allowed so long unlawful instruments are used

4. Whatever leads to haram is haram. Better for your soul to determine to stay away from it
