What is the purpose of Muslims swaying from side to side and walking in a circle while worshiping Allah?

I've seen some do this in a video, but I don't know if it has some specific meaning or if it's akin to some Christians dancing in

the spirit while they worship God.


@ AR: When you mentioned salat, I was able to find the video and the name of the dance.

    When we do salat we're not supposed to sway side to side or walk in circles, not sure what this is, probably some innovation. When we do salat we should have our backs straight, not sway, look down, etc.

    whatever you saw wasnt a part of actual islam..

    we dont do that.. .. so without seeing the video in question, no one can really answer this question..

    It is so called tawaf or circumumbulating the Kabbah. We don't know what the purpose is.

    there is no purpose some just think it serves a real purpose it doesn't

    allah doesn't need worship anyway and you shouldn't worship it
