Counting the tasbeehs for someone who is performing Salatut Tasbeeh

Q: A mosque in Durban encourages Salatul Tasbeeh during holy/auspicious days and nights etc. I am familiar with the blessed status of salatut tasbeeh and its importance. The people are encouraged to read in the mosque and the imaam or some person counts the tasbeehs for them. He is not in salaah. Is this permissible?

A: This is incorrect as it is impermissible for a person in Salaah to follow somebody out of Salaah

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