Most Muslims today are not belly dancers in the strictest sense.
Many believe the term is inappropriate for a Muslim.
There are exceptions:
Dancer and belly dancer
Dancers in the Muslim community
What is in the Quran
In the Qur’an, Allah commands the Muslims to practice Islam in the most beautiful and correct way possible.
Allah states in the Qur’an:
“And strive and strive (i.e. be) of good example to your wives and to orphans, and not of them who make you sit (at home), for they spend their wealth like men on the beds of camels and horses and do not give them their dinner because of fear that they may not understand…” (8:5) “And whosoever desires to be a good example to men (in religion) let him give up his seat and his wife and children and all that he has!” (9:5)
Do you have the right to refuse to dance in public
If a Muslim decides to refuse to dance at a celebration, he may be breaking his covenant and sinning against Allah:
And Allah did not send you with the Book except as a standard and a guide. If you are truthful and do not violate other than what is revealed in the Book, then the rest are those of whom you were wronged. And let not a man’s life be a burden to another without his consent. And whatever you spend of your property in Allah’s cause, do you not deserve that of Allah? But when he wrongs you, then forgive him, for Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.” (48:28-29)
“Say: ‘Allaahumma, if I am not with you, there is neither a witness against me nor is there any evidence against me so do not ask for any help except from Allah.'” [Qur’an 48:29]
If you are an innocent person that is being tortured for your life and you refuse to come out of the torture, your choice is yours to take:
“Allah has made for you a sign from his (His) side, that you may seek aid, to the protection of your necks – if you are being attacked, attack them (with swords and clubs), but if they come to you unarmed, do not hurt them.” [Qur’an 4:83]
