  1. The Taraweeh prayer is Sunnah Muqadah which is confirmed by the Companions, may Allah be pleased with them, and is performed during the month of Ramadan, as it is the month of reading, listening and understanding the Qur’an, especially in order to ask Allah for the Qur’an.

  2. Tarawih prayers are voluntary (Sunnah) prayers in Islam and are not considered compulsory (Fard). These prayers are performed during the month of Ramadan and are highly recommended for Muslims, but they are not an obligation like the five daily obligatory prayers (Salat al-Fard). Muslims are encouraged to perform Tarawih prayers as an opportunity to seek spiritual closeness to Allah, recite and listen to the Quran, and engage in additional acts of worship during the holy month of Ramadan. However, it’s important to note that missing Tarawih prayers does not incur a sin, as they are not obligatory. The number of Rak’ahs (units of prayer) in Tarawih can vary among different Islamic traditions and communities. The most common practice is to pray 8 or 20 Rak’ahs in sets of 2, with a break in between. The exact method can vary based on individual or community preferences. While Tarawih is not obligatory, it is a highly meritorious and rewarding act of worship during Ramadan, and many Muslims choose to participate in these prayers to maximize their spiritual benefit during this blessed month.
