Number of Raka’ats in Taraweeh-Ramadhan

TARAWEEH
The Ramadan nightly prayer has a special merit over other nights. The Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever observes night prayer in Ramadan as an expression of his faith and to seek reward from Allah, his previous sins will be blotted out.” (Muslim)
In this hadith, faith means faith in what Allah has promised the observers of night prayers. To seek reward mean, the observer’s intent is not for eye service or seeking special recognition from someone. Taraweeh is derived from the Arabic root word, Raaha, which means to rest, relax and use as recreation. It is so called because the believers used to prolong it. After every four raka’ats they would stop for rest and relaxation and resume until Taraweeh was complete.http://islamicchildrenstudy.blogspot.com/
