RAMADAN – Introduction to Taraweeh
Ramadan is the special Month for Muslims, for all the believers it is told to us by Allah (SWT) that there is no month better than the month of Ramadan and there is no worship better than the worship of this month and there is no night better than thousand worshipping nights than the Night of Power (Shab-e-Qadr).
Yes, that is right when it comes to the ultimate month of Ramadan we are to worship and follow the precise teachings that are promised to benefit us for the life herein and hereafter. For your information it is the idea of praying and worshipping to please our Lord, Allah (SWT) for his attention seeking mercy and forgiveness.
This is the month in which we are to pray Taraweeh The Special Prayer For The Month Of Fasting. This is a very special provision for which we are to make the best out of it from special understanding. As you might not know, but our Beloved Prophet was the first One to start Taraweeh prayers in the special month.
It is reported from various sources that our Beloved Prophet (SAWS) prayed Taraweeh once in mosque and people joined him He (SAWS) prayed again the next night in Ramadan and more people joined him, and for a reason He (SAWS) did not come to pray Taraweeh for the next two nights leaving people to wait.
On the question due to His (SAWS) absence He (SAWS) said: “I have seen what you did, nothing had prevented me from coming out to you except that I feared that it may become obligatory upon you.” Thus, it is offers high rewards and have not been made compulsion on Muslims but as said the followed practice offers high rewards to the believers.
