Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
Question: Is it permissible for women to be Qur’an reciters and record a CD? Wouldn’t this involve marriageable (non-mahram) men listening to her voice?
I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.
I asked Shaykh Akram Abd al-Wahhab al-Mawsuli, a leading Iraqi jurist, and he said that unless the recordings were specifically for women—and clearly labelled and distributed as such—then they are to be avoided.
And Allah alone gives success.
