Aside from personal preferences (distance, community involvement, etc.), some individuals choose mosques to attend depending on how long they take to pray Taraweeh. If you’re like me, you’ve questioned the significance of raka’ah numbers for this universal Ramadan prayer.
Sheikh Dr. Yasir Qadhi answers our questions in the video by reminding us that Taraweeh prayers are not obligatory and, therefore, do not have a right number of raka’ahs. May we refrain from arguing about the number of raka’ahs and, rather, focus on the importance of Taraweeh.
