One intention for twenty Rakaats Taraweeh Salaah

read time: 1 minute

 

Nasihah (Advice): Be patient in Salaah and be thankful to Allah

 

Sayyiduna Mugheerah Radhiyallahu Anhu says: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam used to stand in Salaah till his feet or legs swelled. He was asked about it (i.e. the reason for offering such an unbearable Salaah) and He said, “Should I not be a thankful slave.” (Bukhari)

Question and Answer:

 

  1. AsalaamuAlaikum I’d like clarity on ladies performing the taraweeh salaah at home please….can we make a single niyyat for 20 rakaats of taraweeh  salaah or do we need to make a niyyat at the beginning of every 2  rakaats taraweeh ? JazakAllah khair

 

(Question published as received)

 

  1. It is not necessary to make an intention for every two Rakaats of Taraweeh Salaah. The intention at the beginning of the Taraweeh Salaah is sufficient. (Al-Bahrur-Raa’iq 1/294)

 

This applies to both males and females.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
