Question:

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Is a woman's voice Awrah in Islam.?

Answer:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

 

According to the soundest opinion of the Ḥanafi madhab, a woman’s voice is not her ʿawrah.[1]

 

Only Allah SWT alone knows best.
