In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh


Dancing is haraam by the consensus of all the Fuqahaa (Jurists).


(Shaami: vol. 6 pg. 396, Darul Ma’rifa)

(Tahtaawi: pg. 319, Al-Ilmiyya)


Therefore, there is no question of any dance being Sunnah.


And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best
Wassalāmu ῾alaykum
