Just wondering..

To the egyptians reading this: Are unveiled girls allowed to dance to Samy Youssef's new song with guys they are not married to? How do you think he feels about this?

its not acceptable in all cases in the 1st place.
1st: because its a religious song that should be given its respect..
2nd: for muslim girls *veiled or non-veiled* shouldn't be dancing with guys who are not their husbands.. or any one of the people whom they can't marry *ma7arem ya3ni* as her brother, father... etc.
3rd: because muslim girls 8veiled or not veiled* are not allowed to dance in public in the 1st place..

wish my answer would make it clear..

but i got one question: why especially you are asking egyptians reading?!

ps: i am a muslim, egyptian veiled girl..

well, because not many people from other nationalities would know Sammy Yousef, and egyptians, more then any other arabs in the region, are bound to give me a diverse set of answers, 3alashan we are all very diverse in our thinking. At least in the blogsphere, u know?

Plus, the question came to me when i was watching melody last night. I was just wondering if such a song could ever get so popular they play it in a club, the same way Kanye's West "Jesus Walks" worked for the christians in the US. And then i thought, well, the people may object. So I figured I would ask. you know?

I am interested to know what you think women & men danced during weddings & celebrations in the days of the Prophet in yathreb? you think they were all married?
Which is more detestable, dancing or stealing? oh by the way, there is no such thing as a religious song & a non religious song, a religious song is mainly a good way to make money from those who pretend they are pious enough not to listen to non religious songs, its quite profitable.

To anon:
"I am interested to know what you think women & men danced during weddings & celebrations in the days of the Prophet in yathreb? you think they were all married?"

women do dance, what is the problem?!
what i was saying, dancing in public with males she can legally marry, and yet they are not married so far!!

at the times of the prophet PBUH, women danced and sung as well but not in public.. its a humanly nature in the 1st place

i guess by this reply, your question:
"Which is more detestable, dancing or stealing?"
got no place to be asked.. since stealing is a sin in all religions and idealogies.. !!!!

to sandmonkey:
to tell you the truth, i don't feel comfortable when ever i watch any of Sammy Yussif's songs on Melody or Mazzika. somehow i get offended.
Talking about God or the phrophets *in general* should be in a more repectable manner. even if its a song *not religious to ease up anon a bit*, still it has to be taken more firmly. at least not to be broadcasted on such stations along with Ruby and Haifa!!

PS: i am not a complicated muslim, nor taking it hard on myself. I am just discussing with you what should be done :)

and thanks for nice discussion after all

I was absolutely shocked to know that the melody owner is Abdel Nasser grandson. That is the most humilating thing a grandson can do to his grandfather.

This family should be ashamed for the dirt on this music station. It is a porno site masked indeed!

I'm not even a muslim and I'm outraged at the level of cheap, dirty, singers plus what is Yusuf really doing accepting this music station to air his song.

Wrong move Mr. Yusuf.

Of all the strange "crimes" that human beings have legislated of nothing, "blasphemy" is the most amazing - with "obscenity" and "indecent exposure" fighting it out for the second and third place.
