If the Mushaf is in Front of the Imam in Tarawih

Fatwa ID: 04174

Answered by: Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah

 

Question

 

What is the ruling of praying behind an imam who reads from a Quran during the prayer? What if the Quran is on the stand and he doesn't hold it or turn the page during the salah? So, he reads one page per rakah?

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

 

Answer

 

The answer to this question has been given before.

In the aforementioned scenario, one Salah will become invalid by reading from the Mushaf even though he may not be holding it as one is being inspired by an external element (talaqiy) (Raddul Muhtar p.384 v.2)
