Ruling on making Dhikr loudly while swaying

Q 7: What is the ruling on those who make Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) in unison and raise their voices while jumping and swaying from side to side?


A: It is not permissible to do this, for this way is Bid`ah (innovation in religion). The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: He who innovates things in our affairs for which there is no valid (reason) (commits sin) and these are to be rejected. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
