(Fatwa: 16=162/L)


If there is none offering salah, and people get involved in loud Zikr individually then it is allowed even it seemingly creates a scene of collective Zikr:

وفي حاشیة الحموي للشعراني: قد اجمع العلماء سلفاً و خلفاً علی استحباب ذکر الجماعة في المساجد وغیرھا الا ان یشوش جھرھم علی نائم او مصل او قارئ (شامي: 2/434، ط زکریا، دیوبند)

Allah knows Best!
