According to the opinion of Imam Abu Hanifah Salat Al-Kusoof is read quietly in congregation. While Imam Abu Yusuf and Imam Muhammad hold the view that Salat Al-Kusoof is read out loud in congregation. As I am a follower of the Hanafi school of thought my question is which opinion should i follow? And why? Please provide dalail (proofs) and references.

According to Fatawa Hindia, the opinion of Imam Abu Hanifah (may Allah have mercy upon him) will be preferred, thus you should follow him.
