Question ID: 17347

If you say loud Zikr is not allowed, than how can the Quraan be recited aloud,
Also you say that it is Haraam, can you prove this from Quraan or authentic sunnah ?
Pls clarify the point from Quraan or sunnah

On the 12th of May 1999 a friend brought me a leaflet written by Mufti A.H. Elias. In this leaflet, an attempt was made to suggest that loud Zikr is Haraam and an evil Bid�at. In a polite manner, I removed all doubts and misunderstandings which were made by Mufti Elias by writing a pamphlet. About five months later, an organisation called “International Islamic Research Institute” published a book entitled “Impermissibility of Loud Zikr in the Masjid” in reply to my pamphlet. To my surprise, the book did not display the name of the author and, furthermore nobody seemed to have heard about this “Institute”. Upon reading this book, I concluded that the writer of this book was a Deobandi Aalim. In fact, the compilation of this book was through the collective effort of Deobandi Ulama as the name of the organisation suggests. Its quite clear that the authors are not sure about the authenticity of their proofs and understanding as the names of the Deobandi Ulama are ommitted. The resultant is that the entire Deobandi Ulama has to be addressed. The reader will notice that the Deobandi Ulama have showered me with abusive languages on several times in their book, which is evident of their level of politeness.

Mujaahid-e-Ahle Sunnat, Hazrat Sheikh Sa�eed Ali Chobdat, has shown great devotion to the Maslak (teachings) of the Ahlus Sunnah, and is always prepared to serve the Maslak of the Ahlus Sunnah for the sake of Allah with complete sincerity. May Allah Ta�ala bless every Sunni Aalim and Murshid (Peer) with the Imaan of serving the Deen, which Allah Ta�ala has kept in the Sheikh�s heart. With the Sheikh�s encouragement and support, I will proceed with my reply and for this onus, I am very grateful to him.May Allah Ta�ala, in His Infinite Mercy, grant him the best reward that is befitting for his efforts.

The learned Hazrat Mufti Naseem Ashraf Habibi (Habibi Darul Ifta), Hazrat Moulana Ismail Peerbhai (of Estcourt) and Br. M. Y. Abdul Karrim from the Imam Ahmed Raza Academy (Durban) have provided me with the Islamic literature that was required for compiling my treatise. I am grateful to them and pray that Allah Ta�ala grant them success in both the worlds. Aameen. Br. Yunus Abdul Karrim has offered a very significant service to the Deen by doing the typesetting of this book. My dear Shaheed Patel, Omar Patel and Shafee Shaikh have assisted me in correcting the grammatical errors and proof reading of the book. May Allah Ta�ala reward them in abundance and increase their

Understand clearly out stance:

1) To make Zikr is permissible, laudable and rewardable.
2) To make audible Zikr is permissible individually in the Masjid when it does not disturb any Musallee. Salaat performance is given preference in the Masjid.
3) In-audible (soft) Zikr is better than audible Zikr.
4) Audible (loud) Zikr in congregation in unision, in the Masjid is NOT PROVEN. One should abstain from such actions.
5) Sahabah (R.A.) did not gather in the Masjid or homes to make Zikr.
