    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    If you intend to know Shariah ruling about loud Zikr, you should know that it is alright in some cases without any karahat while in some cases it is makrooh. Those who allow loud Zikr it is for treatment, it strokes heart and causes warmth that is useful in this chain.
    فالإسرار أفضل حيث خيف الرياء أو تأذي المصلين أو النيام ، والجهر أفضل حيث خلا مما ذكر لأنه أكثر عملاً ولتعدي فائدته إلى السامعين ، ويوقظ قلب الذاكر الخ (شامى)

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
