Q 10: What is
the ruling on women raising their voices in trilling cries of joy at weddings?
Is it prohibited because the voice of woman is `Awrah (something that should be hidden in public) or because it is prohibited in principle?
Loud cries of joy are prohibited in principle, although women's voice is not `Awrah in general. It becomes so when a woman speaks softly, as this may entice men and move their desire towards her.
