5 benefits of offering Taraweeh

Taraweeh is one of the most auspicious and long-awaited events in Ramadan. It is celebrated in different shapes and fashions across the world, while some offer 20 rakaats Taraweeh daily and some offer 8.

Overall, Taraweeh is one of the most unique events during Ramadan and offers some benefits that Muslims must take advantage of it. Here are five absolutely amazing benefits of offering Taraweeh during the holy month of Ramadan:

You can hear the Holy Quran

The holy Quran is the most precious book in the world. It is intended to be a guide for humanity until the end of time and serve as a manual for becoming an ideal Muslim. The holy Quran also has a huge barakaat. After all, it is Allah’s word and therefore brings a special blessing that Allah summarized to the Quran. There is no better way to spend Ramadan than to stand in front of the Almighty for a long time every day and listen to his words.

You follow two Sunnahs of the Holy Prophet

Holy Prophet used to give Taraweeh every day of the month of Ramadan, and during these 29/30 days, he used to listen to the entire Holy Quran. The sunnah of the Holy Prophet is the most recommended activity for Muslims after fardh, and therefore it is essential that we invoke the joy and happiness of Allah in the auspicious month by following the act of His beloved prophet.

Taraweeh makes salah much easier

Whether you offer 8 rakaats or 20 rakaats of Taraweeh during Ramadan, it is always more than the number of rakaats you give throughout the year. Thus, Taraweeh becomes a means by which the opportunity of offering Salah has increased as one used to stand in prayer for long periods of time during Taraweeh. It can therefore be seen as a means by which one can practice making Salah offerings regularly throughout the year, and thus beneficial in really restructuring our lives. And make us more active and responsible Muslims throughout the year, not just during Ramadan.

Salah is considered the splendid shape of worship

Salah is taken into consideration as the maximum splendid shape of worship and the best shape of submission to the oneness and energy of Allah. It is the maximum apt manner of expressing obedience to the Almighty and, in that, is possibly the quickest manner to achieve the affection and pride of Allah. With His merciful nature in full swing and with the maximum auspicious month of the year, what higher manner can one spend their time than via way of means of expressing his or her like to Allah is certainly considered one among His maximum preferred ways?

Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that the Holy Prophet once said the following: “The most prominent fasting after Ramadan is the month of Allah al-Muharram, and the most prominent prayer after the prescribed prayer is the night prayer.” Abi Dawud 2429

It’s also good exercise

We frequently laze around during Ramadan and as a result, fail to get the required workout to stay healthy. That, coupled with the standard overeating that we do in the course of the Iftar and Sehri approach that it’s miles important that we get a few workouts. In that, offering Taraweeh is killing birds with one stone. Consistency in Taraweeh will help you stay on track and stay active. It helps us get physical benefits.
