Reciting aloud in Nafl Salaah

Question:
 

May one read Nafl Salaah aloud during the day if one is reading alone? Can I recite aloud in Nafl Salaah during the night?
 

Answer:
 

There is no record of it being the practice of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) or the Sahabah to recite aloud in regular Nafl Salaah during the day. Thus, you should avoid reciting aloud in Nafl Salaah during the day. You may recite aloud in Nafl Salaah during the night as there are narrations to substantiate this.
 

And Allah knows best
