Is taraweeh a part of the custom of Prophet Mohammad? Younus AlGohar clears popular misconceptions about offering tarawih prayers.
- Many scholars think that a common man is obligated to pray five times a day and, God forbid, Prophet Mohammad is obligated to pray six times. They say the sixth prayer is the night (voluntary) prayer. So Prophet Mohammad would regularly recite the tahajjud prayer.
- Some scholars say that there was no such thing as ‘tarawih’ and that people would only offer the tahajjud prayers during Ramadan. But because there were long chapters in it, so they would sit down to catch their breath and then stand to offer it again. Sitting down is called ‘tarwiyah’ in Arabic. So their act of sitting down or ‘tarwiyah’ - pluralised into ‘tarawih’ - means that they would offer the Salat while sitting down.
- One group which consists of Wahhabis and Deobandis says that Prophet Mohammad never recited tarawih. And another group of scholars say that tarawih is a custom of Prophet Mohammad (saw), sometimes 8 rakat and sometimes 12 rakat and sometimes 20. There was no fixed number.
- His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi verified that He would offer the tarawih prayers along with Prophet Mohammad in the gathering of Prophet Mohammad. This is proof that not only is tarawih a custom of Prophet Mohammad but also a custom of Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi. Therefore, those who rebuff the importance of tarawih are liars and they are spreading mischief in the religion.
