Qiyaamul Layl, Salatul Taraweeh

25 Aug

“Taraweeh, Qiyaamul-Layl and Tahajjud mean the same thing, as has been mentioned in various places, but not so Salaatul Witr.

Salatul Witr usually refers to the odd rakaat(s) prayed in the night after Isha/tahajjud/qiyam/taraweeh.

This is because when the Prophet ( ) was asked about the manner of the night prayer, he replied saying, “two by two..and when you fear Fajr (is nearing) end it with an odd number which will be witr for what you prayed.”


TJ  has prepared a lesson on performing Qiyaamul Layl during Ramadan inspired by

“A Summarization of the Ways of Praying QiyaamulLayl and Witr” (an excerpt from a book by Shaykh Uthaymeen, rahimuhullah.
