Woman’s Recitation in Prayer: How?

Etiquettes of Recitation in Prayer for Women 


We know that a man may recite out loud in prayer even if he is not praying in congregation, but can a woman do the same thing?


First of all, we should differentiate between those prayers where the person should read aloud and those prayers where the person should read silently. The loud prayers are Fajr (Dawn), Maghrib (Sunset) and `Isha’ (Night). The quiet or silent prayers are Zhuhr (Noon) and `Asr (Afternoon).

If a woman offers prayer alone , in the presence of maharim (unmarriageable male relatives), or leading other women in congregation, she can recite aloud in the prayers which are performed aloud and without sound in the quiet prayers. This ruling is the same for men and women. However, she should keep her voice lower than that of a man.

Responding to this question, Dr. Muhammad Salah states that  a woman does not raise her voice as much as men. She can recite out loud to the point that she can hear herself provided that she is not reciting next to a non-mahram man (stranger).
