Bismillah. Alhamdulillahi rabbil-'alamin was-Salatu was-Salam 'ala Sayyidil-Mursalin wa 'ala 'Alihi wa Sahbihi Ajma'in.

Takbir Tahrima is a fard (obligatory) rukn of Salah. But should it be said loudly? Or can it be said just by whispering (with very low voice) or silently (quietly)?

For both "yes" and no "answer" I need proof.

In case of "yes", what do dumb or deaf people do?


Special case that I am concerned with is that if Takbeer is said quietly (without making any sound) then Salah is not accepted. I'd like to know if this claim has base for. The concern comes from the fact that Takbir Tahrima is fard (obligatory) rukn of Salah.

  • Poeple who are deaf or dumb would pray the way the can. As for your question whether or not the takbir for starting the prayer should be said loudly it should have been covered already in Do we have to say allahu akbar loudly in every rakat of every salat?

  • @Medi1Saif | Your answer has led me to conclusion that we can say the Takbeer loudly or by whispering or silently. Is it correct (your own opinion)?

  • My opinion if you are led by an imam him saying it loudly is ok and you shouldn't raise your voice at least not in a manner that it disturbs anybody. If you are alone you may do it either way. If you are the imam you certainly must say it loudly

    What dumb or deaf people do is obvious as Allah doesn't ask a person to do something he is not able to do. And there's no reason to worry as the matter is not crucial for the acceptance or validity of the prayer except for the case of an imam leading a congregation.
