Tarawih at Home - Does it Become Compulsory After the First Time?
  • Question:

    We have been organising tarawih in our house for women since last three years. Is it compulsory to have it every year once started? Is tarawih compulsory prayer during Ramadan?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    To answer your query, kindly note that it is not mandatory to make the tarawīḥ arrangements every year in your home, simply on the basis that you have made such arrangements in past years.

    Tarawīḥ is considered a sunnah muakkadah (emphasised prophetic practice) ritual prayer in Ramadān.

    And Allah knows best.
