Is Whistling Permissible in Islam?

Shaikh Al-Albānī, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

Making a whistling sound with the mouth: the answer [to this question] has come before, that it is from the worship of pagans [those who give or attribute to others what belongs to Allāh alone]:

وَمَا كَانَ صَلَاتُهُمۡ عِندَ ٱلۡبَیۡتِ إِلَّا مُكَاۤءࣰ وَتَصۡدِیَةࣰۚ فَذُوقُوا۟ ٱلۡعَذَابَ بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَكۡفُرُون

Their praying at the Sacred Mosque [of the Kaʿbah] was nothing but whistling and clapping, so taste punishment because of what you have done of disbelief. [Al-Anfāl 35]
