Reading from a paper how to perform salaah while performing salaah

Q: I have been amongst the Muslims who have rarely prayed, but now I started praying. I don't know some words or didnt memorize some words. Is it permissible for me to pray with a paper beside me explaining all the actions and words of Salaah?

A: No. You may read the paper out of salaah. Only read that which you have learnt of by heart in prayer.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
