Please provide proof from Al-Qur'an and/or reliable hadith to support the instruction to make Dzuhr and Asr prayers silently (without loud recitation of Al-Qur'an).
We pray - following Sunnah, because Prophet Muhammad, SalaLlahu Aleih Wassalam did so. How do we know How he did it? There are reliable hadithes which describes and supports it.Proof. We can't just do something, because others do. We absolutely must do as ALLAH instruced us in Al-Qur'an through the best , perfect example of the Prophet Muhammad, SalaLlahu Aleihi Wassalam.
I would like to hear any reliable hadith (if it exists), that Dzuhur and Asr prayers must/should be done silently. Because there is enough evidence of the opposite.
№1. Al-Qur'an, Surah 17:110
قُلِ ادعُوا اللَّهَ أَوِ ادعُوا الرَّحمٰنَ ۖ أَيًّا ما تَدعوا فَلَهُ الأَسماءُ الحُسنىٰ ۚ وَلا تَجهَر بِصَلاتِكَ وَلا تُخافِت بِها وَابتَغِ بَينَ ذٰلِكَ سَبيلًا
Say, ‘Invoke “Allah” or invoke “the All-beneficent.” Whichever [of His Names] you may invoke, to Him belong the Best Names.’ Be neither loud in your prayer, nor murmur it, but follow a middle course between these,
So - we are directly instructed by ALLAH Subhana Wa Talla to read our prayers outloud, not too loud and not too quite. Al-Qur'an superceeds everything, while Sunnah clarifies.
What does Sunnah tell us?
Narrated Abdullah bin Abi Qatada: My father said, "The Prophet (ﷺ) used to recite Al-Fatiha along with another Sura in the first two rakat of the Zuhr and the `Asr prayers and at times a verse or so was audible to us."
حَدَّثَنَا الْمَكِّيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، عَنْ هِشَامٍ، عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ أَبِي كَثِيرٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي قَتَادَةَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقْرَأُ فِي الرَّكْعَتَيْنِ مِنَ الظُّهْرِ وَالْعَصْرِ بِفَاتِحَةِ الْكِتَابِ، وَسُورَةٍ سُورَةٍ، وَيُسْمِعُنَا الآيَةَ أَحْيَانًا.

I have found NO RELIABLE HADITH which instructs us to read Dzuhur or Asr - silently. In fact contradicting ALLAH in 17:110 - would be a deviation from faith. So I kindly ask to provide dalil, proof, references to Al-Qur'an and reliable hadith on the basis of which Dzuhur and Asr are conducted without audible recitation of Al-Qur'an.
