QuestionIt is permissible to read from a copy of the Qur'an in the Tarawih prayer and the prayer of Eclipse or not? Please benefit us with an answer, and may Allah benefit you.Answer
There is no harm in reading from a copy of the Qur'an in the night prayer of Ramadan. This is due to what this contains of allowing those who are being led in prayer to hear all of the Qur'an and because other evidences of the Islamic law from the book and the Sunnah allude to the sanctioning of reciting the Qur'an in the prayer. This includes reciting it from a written copy and from one's memory. It has been confirmed from Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) that she ordered her freed slave, Thakwan to lead her in the night prayer of Ramadan and he was reading from a copy of the Qur'an. Al-Bukhari mentioned this in his Sahih with an incomplete chain of narration, being certain about it.
