Tips for night prayers (Taraweeh) in Ramadan

To concentrate in the night prayers (Taraweeh) can be challenging, especially if you don’t understand Arabic.

1-Do sincere dua' just before Iftar and also after Isha prayer beseeching Allah to help you to concentrate in the Taraweeh in particular and salaah in general. Mu`adh (Radi'Allahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Sall'Allahu alaihi wasallam) took hold of my hand and said:

"O Mu`adh! By Allah I love you, so I advise you to never forget to recite after every prayer:

"Allahumma a`inni ala dhikrika, wa shukrika, wa husni `ibadatika "

(O Allah, help me remember You, to be grateful to You,  and to worship You in an excellent manner).'' [Abu Dawud]

2-Another way to change this is to look over the translation of the next portion to be recited (during the day before the taraweeh), so that you can have a sense of what’s being recited and can ponder over its meaning and implications.

3-You can also try focusing on specific words that you understand and think about how they relate to Islam, Allah and you.

4-Also, before each rakah, remind yourself of the immense reward for performing taraweeh prayers properly.

5-Think that this could be your last Taraweeh! And that Allah is watching us pray.

6-Dont eat too much or heavy/oily and spicy food at Iftaar or before Taraweeh!

May Allah grant us all the strength and opportunity to make this Ramadan better than ever. Ameen!
