Ahsana l-laahu ilaykum. My brother leads my family in taraweeh prayer at home. He recites only what he has memorised from the short chapters of Quran, thus this makes the taraweeh prayer not lengthy. I would like to know, based on the hadith of the Prophet, peace be upon him, if we pray the night prayer until the imam finishes, is it also recorded for us as praying the entire night? Jazaakumullaahu khayraan.
Shaikh Waleed Boghdady:
Yes, you take the reward according to the hadith as it is not requested to pray with a juz or half juz in Taraweeh. Just try to pray the 8 rakaat plus the 3 witr.
