Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Within the Hanafi Madhab, is the issue of a soft or a loud aameen in Jamaat Salaah a valid difference of opinion? I am asking this as more and more Hanafis are reciting aameen loudly, hence, I am unsure whether or not to try to correct people.


A: According to the Hanafi mazhab, aameen should be recited softly.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
