Asalam alikum Bhai, can I use computer generated women voice in creating informative videos on YouTube ? JazakAllah





In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful


The preferred view according to the Hanafi school of thought is that a woman’s voice is not considered to be part of her awrah (that which should be concealed) [1]. However, a male should refrain from listening to the voice of non-Mahram females as much as possible. This is to prevent the occurrence of any situation where there is a possibility of fitnah (temptation). 


Allah Ta'ālā mentions in the Holy Qurān:


يَا نِسَاء النَّبِيِّ لَسْتُنَّ كَأَحَدٍ مِّنَ النِّسَاء إِنِ اتَّقَيْتُنَّ فَلَا تَخْضَعْنَ بِالْقَوْلِ فَيَطْمَعَ الَّذِي فِي قَلْبِهِ مَرَضٌ (الأحزاب ٣٣:٣٢)


Translation: “O wives of the Prophet! You are not like other women, if you are God-fearing.

So, do not be tender in (your) speech. Lest in whose heart is disease should be moved with desire.”


(Surah Al-Ahzab 33: 32)


The aforementioned verse, commands the chaste wives of the Prophet, and women in general, to abstain from conversing with men in a soft, sweet, and alluring tone so that the individual does not feel any attraction towards her. Whilst one is allowed to listen to a woman’s voice due to a necessity, it is inappropriate and prohibited when there is no need and if spoken in an alluring, inciting manner.


Computer Generated voices are created from either real or simulated voices. It would be best to avoid use of a woman’s voice, as there is no necessity or need, and it will also prevent any possibility of fitnah.



And Allah Ta’āla knows best
