Carrying a Mus-haf with a Tafseer whilst praying qiyaam al-layl
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible for a person to carry a Mus-haf which has footnotes (Tafseer or commentary) whilst praying qiyaam al-layl, and if he comes across a word he does not understand, he looks at what it means whilst he is praying?

I put this question to my shaykh, Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him), and he answered as follows:That’s OK.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
