During the month of Ramadan, Muslims enter into a period of discipline and worship as special evening prayers are conducted during which long portions of the Qur’an are recited. These nigh prayersare known as Taraweeh.
The Taraweeh prayer is the addition to the Muslim’s daily routine during the month. It has a special merit over other nights. Abu Hurairah narrated:
“I heard Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) saying regarding Ramadan, “Whoever prayed at night in it (the month of Ramadan) out of sincere faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.” (Al-Bukhari)
Besides spiritual joy, peace at heart and tranquillity, these prayers establish a unique relationship between the slave and Allah; one converses with Him, supplicates to Him in sincere humbleness.
The Muslim offers his prayers together with the whole congregation, enveloped in the spirit of Ramadan.
