Reciting Surah Ya-Sin loudly in the Masjid

Q: Is it permissible to recite Surah Ya-Sin out loud in the Masjid (mosque)?


A: It is not permissible for anyone to raise their voice while reciting the Qur’an in the Masjid, whether Surah Ya-Sin or any other Surah, and whether during Salah (Prayer) or outside Salah. It is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) came out while the people were performing Salah (Part No. 4; Page No. 40) and reciting the Qur’an loudly, and he (peace be upon him) said: O people, each one of you is talking privately to his Lord, so do not raise your voice above the others’ when reciting. This is because it may disturb and annoy other people.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
