As performed for over one thousand years in Al-Masjid Al-Nabawi

by: Sheikh Muhammad Salim Chief Justice, Madinah High Court Professor, Al-Masjid Al-Nabawi

The subject of Tarawih has never been a contentious issue. Muslim jurist throughout history have unanimously consented that the Tarawih prayer is no less than twenty Rak’ats. This longstanding era of agreement came to an abrupt end two centuries ago when a group emerged that obstinately held that Tarawih is only eight Rak’ats. Their constant criticism and attacks have splintered the Ummah into factions and have heralded in a new era of contention and controversy. Anyone who stands to oppose them is labeled an innovator.

This prompted the ‘Ulama al-Kiram to respond with many thoroughly researched books, setting the Ummah at ease. This book continues that legacy. The author presents evidence that in al-Masjid al-Nabawi, where the institution of Tarawih began, Tarawih was twenty Rajats from its inception to the present day.
