I love to sing and dance.

But I want to be a good Muslim.

So my question is…..Is singing and dancing haram?





Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


 We appreciate your desire to sing and dance. However there is a place and time for everything. While we are in this world we are to suppress our desires and fulfill the desire of Allah. In Jannat Allah will fulfill our desires. It will be wise to suppress our temporary desires in this world for the everlasting fulfillment of our desires in Jannat.


As a Muslim we should never do anything to earn the wrath of Allah.


And Allah knows best
