Women listening to the qiraat of men

Q: Is it permissible for a woman to hear the Quran from a man's voice for the purpose of listening to the Quran as it is a good deed.

A: It is permissible provided there is no fear of fithna. It will be better for you to listen to the recitation of a Qari that has passed away e.g. Shaikh Baasit.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
