Can I Bellydance in private? I’m Egyptian, I can’t help it.

Is it haraam for women to bellydance in a private area? Just to stay fit because I love doing it and honestly I’m Egyptian, I can’t help it haha.

Salaam alykum,

I honestly don’t see why it would be. If you were in an all-girl class or in your home, I honestly do not see how it could be argued as impermissible.

I mean, for those who play soccer, those movements are very similar to dancing (if you are doing it right, at least) so I don’t think there is anything really wrong in that sense.

As far as music goes, which I feel like could be a follow up question, you can read my opinion on that matter here.

Plus, as you said, you’re Egyptian, you just can’t help it, it’s not your fault, and there are support groups if you need them…

I didn’t realize there were so many Egyptians on tumblr, how exciting.

Insha Allah, I hope this answers your question, and if you or anyone else has a question on this, or any other topic, please do not hesitate to ask me.
