Can I recite Qasaa’id?

Question:

Salaam wa ‘Alaykum Shaykh,

I hope you are all in the best of health InshAllah.
I am a female, 19 years of age. In my spare time & at dhikr I recite Qasaa’id.
Since I started reciting Qasaa’id I felt love enter my heart, it gives me an over-whelming feeling & brings tears to my eyes.┬áThere is nothing I enjoy doing more.

So many people have told me to start recording them. I would love to but I don’t know whether it’s allowed? Is it not right for me to get them recorded since I am female? I have performed Qasaa’id at a Mawlid & wedding before also.
I was hoping for your advice on this?

Looking forward to your reply.
Salaam wa ‘Alaykum.

Answer:

Alaykum Salam,

The Holy Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) made dua for the singing girls of the Banu Najjar on Hijra and for the singing women and children of Madina on his return from Tabuk, and he listened to A’isha’s singing slavegirls so the answer is of course yes, and make it excellent. In sha Allah the Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) will be pleased and make dua for you.
