Haafiza Reading Taraweeh

Q: Can a girl who is a Haafiza of the Quraan read her Quran in Taraweeh as revision? Can her Aapa stand with her in Salaah to correct her?

A: It is permissible for a haafiza to read her quran in taraweeh aloud if there are no ghayr mehrams in the room or within hearing distance.

Remember that women are not allowed to make jamaat, but if her aapa joins her and only the two of them are making taraweeh in jamaat, this will be permissible. Then the Aapa can correct her.

If the Aapa is correcting her from out of namaaz while looking in the Quran, that's not permissible and when the haafiza takes the luqma or correction from her Aapa, then her namaaz will break.

And Allah Ta'ala knows best
