    According to Shariah, while making a video call any obscene act i.e. showing private part, dancing, vulgarity are unlawful and haram. If a married person does these acts his nikah will not be nullified merely due to this practice, as nikah is nullified by talaq or khula or by Shariah faskh and separation, but it is more heinous act if some married person does it. Though the Shariah has not fixed any specific punishment on this unlawful and obscene act, but it is evil practice. One should avoid it. The method of taubah is that one feels regretful on his act heartily and determines not to repeat the act in future. And one should seek forgiveness from Allah after offering two rakah of taubah Salah. In future, he should avoid making video calls. One tends towards evil act in privacy and loneliness, so he should avoid privacy and loneliness. If some evil thought comes into mind then he should suppress it heavily and do not let it dominate him. Contact any pious man for your reform and follow his instructions.
