Assalaamu 'alay kum, Regarding the
Duha prayer: 1. Can the recitation be
audible? 2. Can it be prayed in
congregration? Jazak Allah Khair

All perfect praise be to Allah, The
Lord of the Worlds. I testify that
there is none worthy of worship
except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

The Dhuha prayer should be performed
silently like other supererogatory
prayers which are performed during the
day. In principle, the night
supererogatory prayers are performed
loudly and those which are performed
during the day are performed silently
unless there is evidence that they
should be performed loudly, like 'Eed
prayers and the prayer for rain.
Ibn Abu Zayd from the Maaliki
School, said: 'It is desirable to perform
night supererogatory prayers loudly and
it is desirable to perform the
supererogatory prayers during daytime
silently, nonetheless, if one performs
the supererogatory prayers during the
daytime loudly, then his prayer is
It is of course desirable to stick to the
principle, but if one does otherwise,
then it is acceptable.

It is not permissible to perform
supererogatory prayers in congregation
unless there is evidence that it is
desirable to perform a given
supererogatory prayer in congregation,
like the Taraweeh prayers and the
prayer for rain, for example. Whereas
the Dhuha prayer, it is among the
prayers which are not permissible to be
performed in congregation. An-Nawawi ,
said: 'As regards all other
supererogatory prayers like the
recommended fixed Sunnah prayers…
and the Dhuha prayer, it is not
permissible to perform them in
congregation, meaning that it is not
desirable to do so, but if they are
performed in congregation, then the
prayers is accepted…There are many
narrations as evidence about the
permissibility of performing
supererogatory prayers in congregation.

For instance, 'Utbaan Ibn Maalik may
Allah be pleased with him, narrated that
the Prophet came to his home
when it was very hot with the company
of Abu Bakr , may Allah be pleased with
him, so the Prophet stood for the
prayer and we stood behind him, then
he concluded with Tasleem and we said
the Tasleem after him as well.' [Al-
Therefore, there is no harm to perform
the Dhuha prayer in congregation
provided one does not take this as a

Allah Knows best.
