How to Perform Taraweeh Prayer

        Taraweeh prayer is a special night prayer performed during the month of Ramadan by Muslims around the world. It is a highly recommended practice and holds great spiritual significance. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to perform Taraweeh prayer.

1. Preparation

        Before starting Taraweeh prayer, make sure you have performed the obligatory Isha prayer. Begin by performing ablution (wudu) to purify yourself. Choose a quiet and clean place for prayer, preferably in a mosque, but if not possible, any clean space will suffice.

2. Start of Taraweeh Prayer

        Stand facing the qiblah (the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca). Begin by making the intention (niyyah) for Taraweeh prayer in your heart. Raise your hands up to your ears and say "Allahu Akbar" (God is the Greatest) to commence the prayer.

3. Recitation of Surah Al-Fatiha and Additional Surahs

        After the opening takbir, recite Surah Al-Fatiha, the opening chapter of the Quran, silently. Then, recite another portion of the Quran, known as a Surah or a few verses, silently as well. It is customary to recite longer passages during Taraweeh, but shorter ones are also acceptable.

4. Rak'ahs in Taraweeh

        Each unit of Taraweeh prayer consists of two rak'ahs (units). After completing the recitation, bow down into ruku' (bowing position) and say "Subhana Rabbiyal Adheem" (Glory is to my Lord, the Most Great) three times. Then, stand back up and perform sujood (prostration) twice, saying "Subhana Rabbiyal A'la" (Glory is to my Lord, the Most High) three times in each prostration.

5. Conclusion

       After completing the first two rak'ahs, stand up for the next two rak'ahs and repeat the same actions. Continue this process until you have completed all the rak'ahs you intend to pray for Taraweeh. Finally, conclude the prayer with the tasleem by turning your head to the right and saying "Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah" (Peace and mercy of Allah be upon you) to end the prayer.
