According to Islamic law, dancing is forbidden. Islamic traditions and traditions in Islam are based on a certain way of living and that is how the community is shaped. There are more fundamental rules that define the religious and ethical behaviour for Muslims. It is not just about the individual – it is also about the community.
When we talk about dance in the Muslim culture, we are not making a blanket statement that it is forbidden. It depends. Sometimes Islam says it is permitted, which means some restrictions are possible.
There are several examples of Islamic dancing in the Islamic world for example the dancing of the Zabarites and the dancing of the people of the Quraysh at the battle of Uhud in 722. These battles were fought with Islamic dances.
There is a great debate as to whether dancing should be allowed, because of the religious nature of the Islamic dance and some of its practices. On the other hand, there are also some people who say this is part of culture. They think it is good to be exposed to this.
In fact, there are rules for dancing: it is done when people go to the mosques, or if someone says an “Arabic prayer”, and the dance has to be performed.
Dancing is a good example because it is a celebration of God. People go to the mosque to take an oath before God and to perform an Arab dance that is not just religious but it is something that is good for the community. There’s no point saying “It’s forbidden, it isn’t allowed”.
When somebody says there are rules about dancing, these rules should be studied carefully and there must be a balance.
