Dancing in Islam:
To a person who accepts logic this should be very informative, unless stupidity, pride and shallowness of thinking have taken over.What does Islam say about dancing? What both our Sunni and Shia scholars acknowledge is that dancing is
, because it is considered as an expression of soul through a type of sexuality. This may create aposition of desire that may lead to negative sexual results in the society, therefore it is forbidden.The scholars also say that each dance could differ from another. There is the sexual dance that illustratesdesire and a materialistic view to an individual, meaning once seeing this type of dance, it will create slowlya status of sexual emergency. These are the issues that Islam rejects considering the negative ethical resultsof it.There is also another forbidden issue, which is the issue of mixed dancing (of a man and a woman). Thenature of the dance itself and the connection of male & female may generally lead to some feelings that arenot in the favor of Islamic ethics in this issue.On the other hand, there is the dance of expressionism, meaning that it expresses an idea, or is about ahumanitarian happiness in a subject (as it is known in our history by the word
). So when we movedancing away from sexual moves & gender mixture, and use it as only a humanitarian expression issue weopen to a lot of horizons, maybe a horizon that reaches to souls.
A message to the Leader of Dance Club in Bahrain Polytechnic:
Thinking of one
s roots is very important. If your dance club is mixed and contains sexuality in the eyes of Islam, then you
re spreading false principles, and probably you are thinking with your desires, not logic.
