Dr. Salim Ahmad Salamh, Dean of the Faculty of Usulud-Deen at the Islamic University, Gaza states that: “It is permissible for women, as far as Islam is concerned, to dance and sing so long as there are no males around. In addition, the words of the song should be free from any foul words or vulgarity. Furthermore, no non-Muslim women should be attending, for the `Awrah of a Muslim woman before them is the same as in the case of a man. Thus, so long as the words of the song are pure and clean and there no males or non-Muslim women are around, there is nothing wrong in dancing.”
