Islam/Reading from the Quran during Night Prayer?


Eid mubarak and salam w alaikum :)

I wanted to ask if it was permissible to read suraas from the quran during night prayer if one has not memorized many suraas?

I don't know many suraas so I was just wondering if I could read from the Quran during night prayer. I would read it when I have to recite a suraa and afterwards place it on a minitable I have beside me.

Is this permissible? I found two sources that contradicted each other so I hope you can explain which is the proper way.

Thank you very much :)

Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)


Dear Brother/Sister,

Of Course you can read any surahs - it will not disturb your salat.

What are the 2 sources saying - can you please copy me.
