The Taraweeh prayer is an obligatory Sunnah for Muslims during the month of Ramadan. According to al-Bukhari (1129) and Muslim (761), prophet Muhammad S.A.W. prayed one night in the mosque and the people followed Him in the prayer. Then the next night He prayed again and more people followed Him. Then the people gathered in the mosque on the third and fourth night but Muhammad S.A.W. didn’t show up and the very next morning He said “I saw what you did, and nothing kept me from coming out to you except the fact that I feared that it would be made obligatory for you” and that happened in Ramadan. This Hadith shows that Taraweeh in the month of Ramadan is a prescribed Sunnah of the prophet Muhammad S.A.W.

According to Abu Hurayrah the prophet Muhammad S.A.W. said that “He who prays during the night in Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven.”
