Do Not Raise Your Voices with the Qur’aan over Others
Question:

When an individual or a group of people are praying is it permissible in Islaam for others to raise their voices when they recite the Qur’aan?
Answer:

When people are praying in the Masjid, Islaam does not permit others to raise their voices – regardless of whether they are reciting the Qur’aan, reciting invocations, or speaking worldly talk that would cause them to disturb each other. In one Hadith, we are told that none of us should read the Qur’aan aloud over others.

Moreover, your question raises another issue: if one is reciting the Qur’aan loudly while others are praying the obligatory prayer, then that person has committed another sin other than that of disturbing Muslims, and that is not praying in congregation.
