Sharing videos of people dancing

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is it permissible to share or to show a video of a group of people (men and women; women are unveiled) all together singing and dancing for a country leader who is not following Islamic laws? I was told that it is okay to share this type of video to others, because it is to show that there are people who are like this.


A: Dancing itself is impermissible and haraam, and to video it is haraam and to show it to others is another haraam.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
