The Truth of Taraweeh 8 or 20 Rakat from Quran and Hadiths

What is Taraweeh? How Many Rakats are there in Tarawih (Night Prayers of Ramadan)? How to Perform Taraweeh Salat? What is SALAT AL-TARAWEEH?




Watch this video to get all your answers by Renowed Islamic Scholar Hafiz Ehsan Qadri. This video will tell you the reality of How many rakats of Namaz (Taraweeh 8 or 20)  to pray? How to pray and How our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallahu Alaihi wa Salam Prayed.

Open challenge By Hafiz Ehsan Qadri of One Million if any one proves Taraweeh is of 8 Rakats

The One Million Rupee reward- Taraweeh 8 Rakath challenge by Hafiz Ehsan Qadiri

Rs 1 Million as reward for the one who proves THARAVEEH to be 8 Rakaths from the Hadees below

Sahih Bukhari, Book of TAHAJJUD, Hadees no 248

Narrated Abu Salma bin 'Abdur Rahman: I asked 'Aisha, "How is the prayer of Allah's Apostle during the month of Ramadan." She said, "Allah's Apostle never exceeded eleven Rakat in Ramadan or in other months; he used to offer four Rakat-- do not ask me about their beauty and length, then four Rakat, do not ask me about their beauty and length, and then three Rakat." Aisha further said, "I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Do you sleep before offering the Witr prayer?' He replied, 'O 'Aisha! My eyes sleep but my heart remains awake'!"

The explanation of the above Hadith

Tharaveeh changed to Night Prayer by the Wahabis/Salafis

Initially the Wahabis/Salafis tried to prove that Tharaveeh was 8 and not 20 by misquoting The Hadees of Syyida Aishah Siddeeqah (which is meant for Tahajjud and not Tharaveeh as it includes Ramazan and other Months as well)

Refer to the Hadees they quote

Sahih Bukhari, Book of TAHAJJUD, Hadees no 248

Narrated Abu Salma bin 'Abdur Rahman: I asked 'Aisha, "How is the prayer of Allah's Apostle during the month of Ramadan." She said, "Allah's Apostle never exceeded eleven Rakat in Ramadan or in other months; he used to offer four Rakat-- do not ask me about their beauty and length, then four Rakat, do not ask me about their beauty and length, and then three Rakat." Aisha further said, "I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Do you sleep before offering the Witr prayer?' He replied, 'O 'Aisha! My eyes sleep but my heart remains awake'!"

Some Points from the above Hadees

1. The Hadees is recorded by Imam Bukhari Alaihir Rahmah in the Chapter of Tahajjud, so to prove Tharaveeh from above is incorrect.

2. If this was for Tharaveeh, then they should offer Tharaveeh in the months other than Ramazan as well as mentioned in the above Hadees

3. They even cannot pray Tahajjud if they offer such lengthy Tharaveeh as mentioned in the above Hadees,

4. They should refrain wearing 3 quarter trousers, folding trousers upto the knee, praying without Turban or Cap because the Hadees talks about the beauty in Prayer and not like of ROWDIES

5. The Blessed Heart of Allah's Habeeb Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam is always awake and engrossed in the remembrance of Allah Tha'ala and everything on the universe is apparent to The Most Beloved of Allah, Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

And now, they started saying there is nothing called Tharaveeh and its only Qiyam ul Layl (Night Prayer) when they were badly exposed by Our Sunni Ulama 

Dear Muslim brothers and sisters

Make sure to offer 20 Raka'aths as per The Established Sunnah and be away from such LAZY people

Hadrat Abu Hurairah reported that the Messenger of Allah has said,

من قام رمضان إيمانا واحتسابا غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه
“…whoever prays during the night in Ramadan sincerely; seeking his reward from Allah, his former sins are forgiven.” [Sahih al-Muslim, Vol. 1, Page 259, Hadith 1815]

Hadrat Sa’ib ibn Yazid has stated that,

كانوا يقومون على عهد عمر بن الخطاب رضى الله عنه فى شهر رمضان بعشرين ركعة

كان الناس يقومون فى زمان عمر بن الخطاب فى رمضان بثلاث وعشرين ركعة
