[Puasa] Tarawih Live dari Makkah

  • Tarawih (Arabicتراويح‎) refers to extra prayers performed by Muslims at night in the Islamic month of Ramadan
  • They are not compulsory; however, many Muslims pray these prayers in the night during Ramadan.
  • Tarawih prayers are prayed in pairs of two and can be prayed in at least 20 raka‘āt according to the two major schools (Hanafis, Shafi'i) of Islam. 
  • Some believe that 8, 12 or 20 can be read. Malikis say that it is 36. Due to varying numbers, the number of prayers performed is broad in scope. 
  • This prayer is performed only during Ramadan of the Islamic calendar after Salāt of Isha'a
  • Muslims believe it is customary to attempt a khatm"complete recitation" of the Qur'an in Ramadan by reciting at least one juz' per night in tarawih. 
  • Tarawih prayers are considered optional, not mandatory.n
