Music Makes Muslims Patient and Calm. IS this concept Accurate? What Do People Say about it? What Is The Reality?

In The Name Of Allah
Does Music Make Muslims Patient and Calm?  IS this concept Accurate?
 What Do People Say about it?  What Is The Reality?
Today, a lot of people are listening to Music and songs. When they are asked why they tend to listen to Music, most of them will reply: “Music makes me patient and calm; that is why I am listening to it.”  But, we should stop here and think about Quran. After thinking about what has been mentioned in Quran, we have to come to a conclusion whether Music makes people Calm or not. Vitally, Evidence is required because people have minds and don’t easily accept what we tell them. 

On the one hand, some people say Music makes them quiet and patient. One may argue, ”When I listen to Music, I am living a fantastic world.” Then when we ask for evidence, they provide themselves as evidence because they don’t have other evidences to support their thought.  But, it is not the same to me. When I listen to music, I become sad. Apparently, his evidence can be applied only to himself; therefore, this is not an evidence, but self-defense. 

On the other hand, Muslims say Music can’t make them patient and calm. When they listen to Music, they think about inappropriate deeds, and simultaneously strange thoughts come to their minds, which make them sad not patient. But, they believe it is Quran and Ziki- the remembrance of God- that make people patient, calm, and quiet. They say worshiping God is the only and the best way to be truly patient even in very complicated and awkward situations. They have reliable evidence to support their side. Their evidence comes from the holy Quran.
In Surah Al-Ra’d,  in verse 28:  

الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ‌ اللَّـهِ ۗ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ‌ اللَّـهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ ﴿٢٨
Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism), and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest”
the true patience is the one we get from Quran, not Music. while listening to Music, you may say Music makes you patient, but actually it is not because it is Quran that makes us calm and patient.
I hope you think a little bit about what they and they say, and which side you would support.
I personally accept the second one because they proive a reliable evidence to advocate their viewpoint.
