Muslim devotees offer special Taraweeh prayer at home during the first day of the holy month of Ramadan. As COVID-19 continues to pose a threat worldwide, mosques will remain closed during the holy month of Ramadan. As a result, Muslims will not be able to pray Taraweeh at the mosque during the holy month. One of the most significant practices of Ramadan, Taraweeh is a congregational sunnah or non-obligatory prayer performed after the ‘Isha or evening prayer every night during Ramadan. Taraweeh means rest or relaxation. It is believed that those who observe the optional prayer throughout Ramadan, ‘out of sincerity of Faith and in the hope of earning reward, will have his past sins pardoned’. At the mosque, men and women pray Taraweeh, led by the imam, the worship leader in a mosque. However, the prayer can be performed at home. photo adib rawi yahya
