Female recitation competitions in the presence of men

Q: What is the ruling on organizing Qur'an recitation competitions for women attended by a male audience?

A: Women are not allowed to recite the Qur’an in the presence of (non-Mahram) men for fear of them becoming attracted to them. In essence, Shari‘ah (Islamic law) dictates blocking all means leading to things forbidden.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
