Reciting from the Qur’an rather than from Memory

question| There are certain cases where devotional instructions encourage the recitation of one of the longer sūrahs of the Qur’an in an obligatory or supererogatory canonic prayer. If we do not know these sūrahs by heart, can we recite them from the Qur’an?
answer| Yes, it is permissible to hold the Qur’an during a canonic prayer and recite a sūrah from the Qur’an rather than from memory.
