Shaikh having a WhatsApp group for females

Q: My question is regarding mixed whatsapp groups.

If such a group is created where there is only females and the shaikh as members. No one talks on the group besides the shaikh who sends Islamic messages and audios (majlis, dhikr, etc). There is no informal discussion not even formal ones with question and answer etc. It's just messages being sent by one person. Will it then be permissible to be a member of it? So far I thought mixed group are not jaaiz but maybe there are some permissibility that I am unaware of.

A: The safer approach is that he should talk to the males, and the men can convey the message to the women.

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