Prayers - Loud Recitations
  • Question:

    Can I recite loudly while praying (Sunnah Salah) alone in my house? Is it permitted to recite Quran in a audible voice or better to recite silently, and does that apply to ladies too?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    It is a sunnah (prophetic practice) to recite loud in the audible prayers and whisper in the silent prayers. However, if someone recites aloud in a silent prayer, their prayer is valid but this practice will be deemed against the Sunnah. The same ruling applies, regardless of whether the worshiper is male or female. If non mahram men are present, females must recite silently.

    And Allah knows best.
