The Ruling on Turning Off the Lights During Taraweeh – Shaikh Salih al-Suhaymi

Question: Turning off the lights or most of it during the Salatul Taraweeh? And making the movements [of prayer] over the microphone?

Answer: “This is an innovation which we heard some people do. They remain in the dark and make the movements over the microphone and the voices ,like this, are suspicious! This is not correct. This is like what is done nowadays with some tapes. They make introductions for them with the sound of fire, the sound of children, the sound singing birds, and I do not know what! Or with a disturbing sound like the sound of firecrackers and it is like explosions of fire. All of this is from the impermissible means and our Scholars warn against it. Yes”.
