Holding the Quran while praying

Home / Q&A / Holding the Quran while praying


Ustadhah is it permissible to hold the Quran for someone who doesn’t know from memory except a few chapters so he can read longer chapters whilst praying tarawih? Or is it better for him to just recite the chapters he already memorized?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Yes, it’s permissible to hold the Quran and read from it only in voluntary prayers but not in obligatory prayers, accordingly yes, you can put it on a stand in front of you and read from it.
