What is the ruling on praying as the imaam and reading from a Mushaf especially in Taraweeh for a group of women at home? May Allah reward you with goodness.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

An Imam or a ma’mun (the one who prays alone), can read from a Mushaf in the non obligatory prayers as At-Taraweeh prayers. This is according to a hadith stating that Ummu Al Muminin Aicha used to pray behind a slave she owned who used to read from a Mushaf.
