The Details of the Question
With what level of voice should we recite surahs during a prayer? "Some people say that during prayer, we must recite aloud enough to hear surahs by ourselves." In such a situation, the people around us cannot perform their prayer in comfort, how should it be performed?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

During prayer, we need to recite surahs loud enough to be heard by ourselves; we should not raise our voice in a way that is hearable by the people near us.

What is important here is to pronounce surahs with the tongue and be aware of our pronunciation. There is no such a rule stating that the voice must come to our ear. There is no need to increase our voice just because we cannot hear it when there is a noise at outside. It is necessary to recite with a low voice that is hearable by us under normal circumstances of a quiet environment. No one around us is disturbed by this voice.
