IMPOR­TANCE OF RAMADAN …

Another impor­tant fea­ture of the month of Ramad­han is Tarawih. It is a spe­cial Salah (prayer) con­sist­ing of 20 rak’at which is per­formed imme­di­ately after the ‘Isha’ prayer. This Salah is Sun­nah mu’akkaddah (repeat­edly empha­sized), and should not be missed. The Holy Prophet (Sal­lal­lahu Alaihi Was­sal­lam) said, “Allah has made fast­ing in Ramad­han oblig­a­tory, and I have made the spe­cial prayer of Ramad­han (i.e. the Tarawih) a Sunnah”.

It is a Sun­nah Mu’akkadah’ ‘alal-​kifayah to per­form Tarawih in jama’ah. It means that it is a Sun­nah mu’akkaddah for the peo­ple of every mosque to arrange for the jama’at of the Tarawih. If a per­son after being sure that the jama’ah of Tarawih is being held in his mosque, per­forms the Tarawih in his home with­out jama’ah, the sun­nah of the Tarawih is dis­charged, but he will be deprived of the great thawab (reward) of pray­ing with jama’ah.

So, one should per­form the Tarawih in the mosque as far as pos­si­ble. It is also a Sun­nah to com­plete the recita­tion of the whole Quran in Tarawih in Ramad­han. It is thus advis­able to request a hafiz (one who has mem­o­rized the Holy Quran by heart) to lead the prayer of Tarawih. How­ever, pay­ing any fee to the hafiz for this pur­pose is not allowed. If no such hafiz is avail­able, the Tarawih should be led by any Imam, and he can recite in it what­ever Surahs of the Holy Qur’an he remembers.

As a gen­eral prac­tice, the Holy Qur’an is com­pleted in most of the mosques a few days before the end of Ramad­han, on the 27th night or even ear­lier. In such a case, Tarawih should be con­tin­ued till the last night of Ramad­han with recita­tion of dif­fer­ent surahs. Those who leave Tarawih after the com­ple­tion of the Holy Qur’an are not cor­rect, because Sun­nah of the Tarawih remains unchanged unto the last night. The time of Tarawih begins after the per­for­mance of the oblig­a­tory (Fard) prayer of ‘Isha.

There­fore, the one who has not per­formed the Fard prayer of ‘Isha can­not join the prayer of Tarawih. He should per­form the Fard of ‘Isha first, then join the Tarawih. If he missed some rak’at of Tarawih, he can com­plete it after the witr. For exam­ple, a per­son came to the mosque when the Imam has per­formed four rak’at of Tarawih. He should per­form the Fard of ‘Isha first, then join the jama’ah for Tarawih. If he has missed 4 or 6 rak’at of Tarawih, he should also per­form the witr prayer with the Imam, then pray the four or six rak’at he has missed on his own, indi­vid­u­ally.
