In Islam, all entertaining songs, music, and dances are forbidden, which make people unfaithful to Allah. It spoils the brain and increases blood pressure.

What is dance?

Dance is a form of expressive movement, which involves the rhythmic display and attraction of body movements. It is a universal human activity, with a rich history spanning thousands of years of culture. Dance serves as a medium of ritual, celebration and artistic expression.

Gathering gatherings of stories and performing songs and dances and songs so that people do not listen to Muhammad. For this reason, one of the Quraysh leaders and wealthy businessmen, Nazar bin Haresh, moved to the then rich city of “Diamond” in Iraq, and from there he learned the stories of the ancient kings of Persia, the bravery of Rustam and Isfindiyar, and started setting up story gatherings in different places in Mecca.

Wherever the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to invite people to religion by telling them about the fear of Hell and the happiness and peace of Paradise, Nazr bin Haresh used to go and tell all those fables and say, are they not better than the stories of Muhammad?

Undeterred by this, he procured many beautiful maids, who were skilled in dancing and singing. He used to arrange dance-song sessions with them at various places and attract people there.

Even if he found out that a person had become a follower of Muhammad, he would put those beauties behind him and order him to use any means to bring him back’ (Ibn Hisham 1/300).

Evidence of dancing Haram

“There is a class of people who, out of ignorance, purchase false fictions to divert people from the path of Allah and ridicule the path of Allah. For them is a grievous punishment’ (Lokman 31/6).

Anti-Islamic print and electronic media as vehicles of lies and pranks of the modern age are covered by this verse. The loss of these things in this era is hundred times more than that era.
