Question:

I currently attend ladies' classes at my local Islamic Center where we
discuss Qur'an, Fiqh, Akhlaq, etc.  These classes are both informative and
informal, and the ladies are quite relaxed and outspoken. I usually tape
record these sessions so I can review them through the week, since I usually
can't take notes fast enough in class. Recently, other ladies in the class
have asked me to give them copies of the tapes for one particular week or
another.  A couple of them have mentioned that they want to let their
husbands listen because the discussions are so informative.

So, is this all right or not?  I'm pretty sure if there were men present in
the class, the ladies would be much more reserved and some comments would go
unspoken.  The candor and frankness we have in our classes comes precisely
from having an all-female group.  

I'm afraid if I tell these ladies that their husbands should not listen to
the tapes, without knowing for sure what the Sharia says about it, I would
come off looking like I think I'm more pious than other people, or else it
might look as if I look down on them for suggesting something which is
haram.  An answer on this issue from one of the 'aalims will allow me to do
what is right without looking like I just made it up myself.

I follow the taqlid of Ayatullah Seestani.

Answer:

There is no harm in men listening for the reason described.
