Tarawih Prayer

Taraweeh Salah in such a Masjid where payment is given for Taraweeh

الاستفتاء

I am from Bangladesh. I know that giving or receiving payment for reciting the entire Quran in Taraweeh is not permissible. My question is that if I perform the Taraweeh Salah in such a Masjid where payment is given for Taraweeh, but I am not paying anything, will my Taraweeh Salah be valid in this situation or is there a problem in this?

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

One should perform the Taraweeh Salah reciting only the last ten Suras rather than following a Hafiz who is paid to lead it. But if unknowingly or due to any compelling situation, one performs the Taraweeh Salah behind a Hafiz who is getting paid for leading the Salah, his Salah will be valid, except that it will be deficient of blessing and rewards.
