23 Virtues of Taraweeh Prayers in Ramadan

Night Prayer during Ramadan (Al-Qiyaam or Taraweeh)

1 Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to encourage us to pray at night in Ramadaan, without making it obligatory. Then he said, Whoever prays at night in Ramadaan out of faith and the hope of reward, all his previous sins will be forgiven.

When the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) died, this is how things were (i.e., Taraweeh was not prayed in congregation), and this is how they remained during the khilaafah of Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him), until the beginning of the khilaafah of Umar (may Allah be pleased with him).

Amr ibn Murrah al-Juhani said: A man from Qudaah came to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said, O Messenger of Allah! What do you think if I testify that there is no god except Allah, and that you, Muhammad, are His Messenger, and I pray the five daily prayers, and fast in the month (of Ramadaan), and pray at night in Ramadaan, and pay zakaah? The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Whoever dies on that will be among the siddeeqeen (those who tell the truth) and the martyrs.
