Tarawih Prayer: Excellence and Virtues

Tarawih Prayer: Excellence and Virtues

Tarawih Prayer

Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “He who observes Tarawih prayer (night prayer during Ramadan) throughout Ramadan, out of sincerity of Faith and in the hope of earning reward will have his past sins pardoned..” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Taraweeh prayer is one of the highlighted acts of worship that is offered during the nights of Ramadan after performing the obligatory `Isha’ and before the witr.

Sheikh Ismail Rufai talks in brief about the virtues and excellence of the night prayer in light of the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

When Do the Last 10 Nights of Ramadan and Itikaf Begin?

When Do the Last 10 Nights of Ramadan and Itikaf Begin?

The Last 10 Nights of Ramadan

`A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) used to strive more in worship during Ramadan than he strove in any other time of the year; and he would devote himself more (in the worship of Allah) in the last ten nights of Ramadan than he strove in earlier part of the month.” (Muslim)
In another hadith, `A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said: “With the start of the last ten days of Ramadan, Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) would pray all the night, and would keep his family awake for the prayers. He tied his lower garment (i.e., avoided sleeping with his wives) and devoted himself entirely to prayer and supplication.” (Agreed Upon)

When do the last 10 nights begin? Do the last 10 days mean the same thing? People do tend to get confused. Also regarding itikaf, when do people begin? When do the last 10 nights end? Watch this short video to get the answer with Sheikh Abu Eesa.
