What is the ruling of a woman reciting audibly in the Salaatul Jahriyyah?

February 6, 2014 § Leave a comment

Question: Is it permissible for a woman to recite audibly in the Salaatul Jahr when she is certain that no strange (i.e. non-mahram) man is present upon her, hearing her, and what is the evidence on that?

Eminent Shaykh Ibn Baaz rahimahullaah responded: Allaah legislated for His Slaves to recite audibly in al-Fajr prayer, and in the first and second rak’ahs of al-‘Ishaa and al-Maghreb, and this general for the men and the women. That is because the sharaa’i (the legislated rulings) are general, except for what is specified by proof to be only for the man or for the woman. Allaah legislated that we recite audibly in al-Fajr prayer, and in the first and second rak’ahs from al-Maghreb, and in the the first and second rak’ahs from al-‘Ishaa. So the woman likewise, she recites audibly benefitting herself and those around her. However, if there are strange men present around her then it is better that she does not recite out loud, because the man may be tested by her voice, so it is best for her that she does not recite out loud. And similarly, in pronouncing the Talbiyah in al-Hajj and al-‘Umrah, when there are strange men near, it is better to not do so out loud, and if she does it audibly then there is no problem. But it is best that it is not done audibly.
