Ruling on Reading from the Mus-haf during Prayer

images (2)

Q. Is it permissible for the Imam to read from the Qur’an during Taraweeh prayers in Ramadan? Are prayers not accepted if the Imam reads from Qur’an during Taraweeh prayers?

Praise be to Allah

There is nothing wrong with reading from the Mus-haf during night prayers in Ramadaan, because this will make the members of the congregation hear all of the Qur’an. The Qur’aan and Sunnah indicate that Qur’an should be recited in prayer, whether it is from the Mus-haf or from memory. It was proven that ‘Aa’ishah radhiAllahu ‘anha told her freed slave Dhakwaan to lead her in praying qiyaam in Ramadan, and he used to read from the Mus-haf. Al-Bukhari mentioned this in his Saheeh
