    And when the fun is considered sinful by Islam (which is pretty much everything that is fun). Dancing is allowed in private only?

    Why are art and music banned in Islam? « Fun « Understand Islam

    Music is considered haram by Islamic extremists, in Iran music is outlawed and you cant play music loud in your car, the only music they allow are tapes of sermons from the Quran.
