Do prophets dance?
Yes the bible says that prophet David danced before people.
Imagine King David dancing and leaping with all his might while uncovering himself to the crowd.
David's wife, in effect, says,
Note: An "ephod" describes an embroidered robe that looks similar to a woman's dress(2 Samuel 6:20)
As you read various modern translations of the passage, you find that even translators have had a bad time with these verses. Various translators have translated verse 20 as:
Prophet David in Islam
David was extremely diligent in worship. He cried a lot. Prophet David is described in verse 17 of Suratu Sad as being strong and endeavoring in worship, soft in his heart, and extremely merciful.
Some misguided people misinterpret verses 23-24 in Suratu Sad. These verses refer to lambs. However some say they really refer to “women.” They say that it means that Prophet David did some tremendous sin concerning women. This is false.
In this chapter of the Qur’an, the verse is really referring to lambs. The real chain of events, concerning these lambs is as follows:
Two people who were adversaries had a dispute about a matter and came to Prophet David through the back door. One man told Prophet David, “This is my brother. He has 99 lambs and I only have one lamb. Despite this, he wants to take my one lamb from me, and unjustly add it to his flock!” When David heard that from the first man, he believed he was truthful. Due to this, Prophet David ruled that the second brother did injustice to the first, before listening to the second brother. A judge is supposed to listen to both parties before passing a judgment. It is cited in the Qur’an that David repented of his action. It was a small sin that was not mean.
Those evil misguided people claim that “lambs” mean women, and that the story is meant to symbolize that Prophet David wanted the wife of his general. Al-Halimiyy, As-Subkiyy, and other Islamic scholars exposed the falsehood of those who lied about the honorable Prophet David.
