On Holding the Mushaf Whilst Praying Taraweeh Behind the Imaam
by The Albaani Site
Questioner: Is it allowed for someone who is following the Imaam in prayer, especially in taraweeh, standing behind the Imaam obviously, [is it allowed for him] to hold the mushaf [while praying] behind the Imaam so that he can look at it?
Al-Albaani: No, no that is not from the Sunnah.
Questioner: If he does it, is his prayer valid [though]?
Al-Albaani: His prayer is valid.
Questioner: But in opposition to the Sunnah?
