Salam, I have recently started praying regularly. I am still on the process of learning it correctly. Sometimes I have trouble focusing while reciting the Surahs and other duas and keeping my thoughts clear. I wanted to know, being a woman, is it permissible for me to recite the Surahs and duas a bit loudly in the Salat? Most of the time I pray alone and indoor.
Alhamdulillah, keep what you are doing now. Be advised that Shaytan
and our own Nafs keep playing with our minds in prayer – this happens
all the time. Just ignore these, don’t give any attention to them.
Since you’re praying alone and indoors, you may recite suffice that
your ears can hear. For women you need not recite loudly.
