Does Sharia law allow dancing? – Ballet Dance Drawing
Jalal was just a young boy when he married a 16-year-old, but by the age of 18 he had become a prophet and made a name for himself on TV as an Islamic preacher, according to his testimony.
A Muslim youth in the Muslim neighborhood of Dharamshala, Jalal’s birthplace, told Al Jazeera that “if you were to walk in the street on a Sunday morning you could see men dancing on bicycles or cars while men did not even have shoes on”.

It is extremely rare to find a preacher in Islam who has not been educated in some way … It has been a challenge to learn all the doctrines that have been revealed from God.”

If the husband and woman do not agree, then the court can impose either a fine or, in an extreme case, a criminal charge such as apostasy or adultery.
There has been a flurry of legal activity in the Pakistani courts this year.
Women’s rights activist Nazia Nazir, who has fought for women’s rights in the country, said: “Last year there were three major cases where women were charged with adultery, and there were two or three cases where a woman was tried and found guilty on the grounds that they had refused
