Muslim Women Appearing on TV

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah


Is it permissible for Muslim women to appear on an ‘islamic TV channel’ , such as the one being propagated in South Africa i.e. ITV?





 It is not permissible in normal instance for a Muslim woman to appear or to speak softly in front of a mature male, so it will be impermissible for her to appear on any kind of TV programme.
