Q. Is it permissible for women to rap on things, other than musical instruments, such as kitchen utensils, in wedding parties?  And what is the ruling if the sound is heard outside by men?
A: Such [rapping] should be judged by the way it is conducted, i.e., if it is of what people used to do in traditional wedding parties, is not considered lahw, and no bad effect follow it as a consequence, there is no problem in doing so.
