A: It is not a Sunnah practice to recite durood or any form of zikr in an audible manner while carrying out the ghusal. However, one should remember Allah Ta’ala in one’s mind.

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

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من أحدث في أمرنا هذا ما ليس فيه فهو رد (صحيح البخاري رقم 2697)

ويكره رفع الصوت بالذكر والقرآن وعليهم الصمت وقولهم كل حي سيموت ونحو ذلك خلف الجنازة بدعة (مراقي الفلاح ص606)
