When you are positioned fully, say Subhanna Rabbiyal A’laa (Glorious is my Lord, the most High) three times. Your forearms should not be on the floor.
How to pray Taraweeh at home Pray Isha (four raka’at) Pray two raka’at sunnah of Isha. Set your intention to start praying tarawih /qiyam. Take a short break. Pray the next four raka’at (again, two raka’at at a time). Here, you can either end your tarawih and move on to witr, or continue praying . Pray witr (either one or three raka’at).
Sunni Muslims believe it is customary to attempt a takmil (“complete recitation” of the Quran) as one of the religious observances of Ramadan, by reciting at least one juz’ per night in tarawih . Tarawih prayers are considered optional ( sunnah ), not obligatory.
Muslims who pray Taraweeh – the teaching of Propher Muhammad (peace by upon him) during Ramadan – to finish the Holy Quran , can hold on to the book in their hands and recite while praying, added the department.
Yes you can if you are away from your place (masjid, home) or if you were involved in a dirty work and you need deep cleaning from oil or something like that. Taraweeh , Qiyam, tahajjud and witr can be done until few minutes before fajr prayer .
For instance, according to the Hadiths, the Prophet Muhammad frequently prayed up to thirteen rakats . Tahajjud rakats are performed in pairs and eight rakats is seen as a good number by many Muslims. In other words, most people will say two, four , six, or eight rakats , though more is not discouraged.
However, a majority of the ulema insist that while Muslim women offering Taraweeh in congregation is allowed, they should do so in a separate section of the masjid and a male imam should be the one leading the prayers. Earlier, the women offered taraweeh prayers at their homes in the absence of suitable places.
Tahajjud , also known as the “night prayer”, is a voluntary prayer performed by followers of Islam. It is not one of the five obligatory prayers required of all Muslims, although the Islamic prophet, Muhammad was recorded as performing the tahajjud prayer regularly himself and encouraging his companions too.
It’s entirely up to you. Taraweeh is not mandatory, and in fact the Prophet (saw) stopped performing them because he was afraid the ummah would make it compulsory like the fard daily prayers.
Taraweeh is sunnah. Taraweeh is not fard rather it is Sunnah- Muakkadah which means the highest form of sunnah thats why muslim shouldn’t miss it and seek Allah rewards on the day of judgment and as well as in this dunya.
The reason was the Command of Allah. Actually, all the Sunnah prayers are optional ( Nafl ). They were offered by Holy Prophet PBUH on regular basis so are called Sunnah . Tahajjud is also Nafl and offering it fetch reward.
