Taraweeh Salah through live feed

 

Question:

Assalamualaikum,

Due to the current situation, the masjid I go to does a live feed of the tharawi prayers. Is it possible for me to follow them and pray at my house?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is a requirement for the validity of congregational Salah that the location of the Imam and followers must be the same. [1][2]

Hence, it is not permissible for you to follow the Imam while you are at your house as explained in the query.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

(Mufti) Abdul Azeem bin Abdur Rahman

[1] فقد تحرر بما تقرر أن اختلاف المكان مانع من صحة الاقتداء ولو بلا اشتباه، وأنه عند الاشتباه لا يصح الاقتداء وإن اتحد المكان. ثم رأيت الرحمتي قرر كذلك، فاغتنم ذلك (رد المحتار، ج ١، ص ٥٨٨، سعيد)
