Question

What is the ruling on a woman who smiles in front of a non-mahram man, but without showing her teeth or making any sound?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

It is haraam for a woman to uncover her face or to smile at a non-mahram man, because of the evil to which that may lead. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength.
