#274: Ruling on a Man Listening to a Female Mufassir


What is the ruling of hearing female tafseer during ramadan


I want to believe that the one asking is a male. If this is true, then the question should read;

What is the ruling of a male listening to the tafsir from a female scholar?

If that is the case, then we say that a male listening to the tafsir from a female scholar is allowed under the following condition;

That the person has no other access to a male scholar offering the tafsir.

And they are completely separated via a veil such that both can not see the other.

This is because Allah Ta’aala said;

(And when you ask (his wives) for anything you want, ask them from behind a screen,) Quran 33/53

Imam Ibn Kathir said regarding the verse above;

meaning,`just as it is forbidden for you to enter upon them, it is forbidden for you to look at them at all. If anyone of you has any need to take anything from them, he should not look at them, but he should ask for whatever he needs from behind a screen.’

The scholars are of concession that this applies to the Muslim women just as it addresses the wives of the prophet alaihi salam.

If however the person has access to a male scholar, then it’s makruh for him to listen to the woman with the condition that the veil exist.

And Allah knows best.

Jazaakallahu khairan!
Baarakallahu feekum!
