Coming to Maldives soon - Male Belly Dancing


Male belly dancers are making a big comeback in Egypt. With our obsession for copying and imitating all things Arabic it will not be long before our coral islands are jiving, shaking and ululating the belly dance...
Maybe even become a tourist attraction..
It appears that male belly dancing was very popular with the Maldivian students of Al-Azhar. I have been told in confidence that X and Z and M and C were great belly dancers during their days in Azhar dormitory. For years they have kept it a secret as Maldivians were not up to appreciating the fine points of male belly dancing.
However, now that we love and imitate all things Arab, maybe some of them will recount and regale us with their belly dancing stories and - show us those sexy moves.



CAIRO: Farid Mesbaah, male belly dancer, hopped on a car in the Shobra District of Cairo and strutted his stuff.

He clanged metal castanets, magically converted his hips into pistons and twirled his head around like a centrifuge. The crowd seated at tables lining a dirt alley clapped rhythmically. Young men in jeans jumped up to wiggle along.

Mesbaah was performing at the opening of the Old-Time Moon Café, a gig that, along with weddings, birthdays, nightclubs and circumcisions, is typical for belly dancers. Untypical, at least in recent years, are performances by men.

Male belly dancing, a centuries-old Egyptian tradition, is making a comeback - against the odds, considering its periodic suppression by government and religious officials. The problem for Mesbaah is that his craft has long been associated with homosexuality - a taboo in Egypt.

"I just like to dance," says Mesbaah, who has seven children. "It's very sensual. I've been doing it since I was little."

    I dont agree that Ismail Rasheed is posting about sex. I think he posts about social status, condition of women in Islam and about Arab culture. I dont think he likes the buruga. Neither do I. It is an abomination.

    A gay anonymous said "I dont agree that Ismail Rasheed is posting about sex. I think he posts about social status, condition of women in Islam and about Arab culture."

    How did Ismail explain about the Islamic and social status of women in this post? Even the word "woman" is not mentioned in the post! A gay like Ismail Rasheed won't talk about woman, he desire only men!

    Islam has nothing to do with dancing! It is prohibited in Islam!!! Dancing is for woman, not for man! Any man who dance is imitating woman and imitating the opposite sex is haram in Islam. Woman may dance only in the presence of other woman by covering her body. Woman are not allowed in any circumstance to dance in the presense of non-mahram men!!!

    Go and tell the egyptian teachers at Azhar that male belly dancing is prohibited. He probably is a belly dancer himself!

    Why u people like belly dancing so much? It maybe a tradition of the Egyptians! You ignorant fools don't know how to distinguish Egyptian culture and the religion of Islam! How on the Earth you assumed that Egyptian culture=Islam??

    Concerning the allegation that Azhar teachers are belly dancers, I care less! Because even if Azhar teacher dance that doesn't mean that Islam allow it!!!

    Why do you guys get that horny when u see some male dancing? After all it is clear that dancing is not permitted in Islam!!

    Adam,

    Men imitating women and vice versa is haraam in Islam. It is haram for men to wear women's clothes. Likewise dancing is for women. If men are doing that, they are imitating women, and imitating women is haraam!
