Earning money through uploading videos on Youtube

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If I make a video and I upload it on YouTube, when people watch that video then I receive money for that, if that video does not include animate objects and only my voice is included with that video, is this money legal in Islam?

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
