Use Your Time Well in Ramadhan; Will You Be Here Next Year? – Shaykh Fawzan

It is obligatory to be wary of negligence and laziness (especially in Ramadhan). Take your portion of rest by way of sleep, there is no problem with that, as long as that does not cause you to be remiss with the (obligatory) prayers.

Do not allow your sleep to dominate your valuable time – the noble time of Ramadhan (due to the many blessings within it). Because it is possible that you will not reach Ramadhan again in other than this year (due to death) and thus you will be deprived of blessings and goodness (if you do not take advantage of your time now).

The Story of Taraweeh – Day 5 Ramadhaan Reminders – Shaykh Fawzaan

From that which Allah has prescribed in this blessed month (Ramadan) the filling of the Masaajid for the Taraweeh Prayer in congregation. The Taraweeh Prayer is prayed in congregation in the Masaajid, this is the Sunnah (of the Prophet ﷺ ) and if he prayed it in his house then there is no harm but the Taraweeh prayer in the Maasajid is the best and complete, for it is the month of filling the Masaajid.

Taraweeh in Congregation and Congregational Prayer in Last Third of the Night – Shaykh Baaz

If a Muslim prays with the congregation, in Ramadhan, the Taraweeh prayer and there is also a prayer in the last third of the night, then which of the two is better and takes precedence? To perform the witr with the congregation and make the witr even, or should he leave off the witr with the congregation and pray the witr in last third?

It is better to complete the prayer with the Imam as Allah legislated, because the prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said, Verily, when a man prays with the Imam until the imams (finishes) and departs, Allah writes (for him the reward) of (praying) the rest of the night.

And that is because when he (may Allah raise his rank and status) led the companions [in taraweeh], up to a third of the night some nights, and in some they prayed up to half of the night, they asked,

“O Messenger of Allah, (what) if we pray (more) optional prayers for the rest of our night; he replied Verily, when a man prays with the Imam until the imams (finishes) and departs, Allah writes (for him the reward) of (praying) the rest of the night.

This is what is better, that he continues with the Imam including the witr and if he prays in the last third the first witr suffices him, there is no need to perform a second witr, All praises belong to Allah, he would perform witr with the Imam and pray what he is able in the last third even number, (ie 2 by 2) without a witr, yes. As has preceded in the first question.

Questioner: If he prayed witr with the imam and then made it even and prayed witr in the last third?

Shaykh:
If he makes it even, then no problem… When the Imam gives the salaam, then he stands and adds a rakah to make it even and performs the witr in the last third, no problem.

However this could possibly become difficult for the souls and it might be feared that the person who does this could be considered to show off.

In conclusion, if he suffices with the witr (with the Imam), All praises belong to Allah it suffices. And if he makes it even then no issue, if he makes it even and performs witr in the last third, then no problem. And if he suffices with the witr and then prays in the last third that which is easy for him, 2 units of prayer, or 4 or 6 or 8 etc then no problem, there is no need for (another) witr the first witr suffices him. Yes.

The Imam should consider the conditions of the weak, elderly and other than them during all Prayers – Al-Imam ‘Abdul ‘Aziz ibn Baz

The Imam ‘Abdul ‘Aziz ibn Baz said:

This is a sought-after affair in all the prayers; in taraaweeh and in the (five daily) compulsory prayers, due to his statement (sallallahu alaihi wa salam), 

Whoever of you leads the people (in prayer), then lighten it, for indeed amongst them are the weak and the young and those with needs. (Bukhari & Muslim). 

Hence, the imam considers those being led in prayer and is gentle with them regarding the taraaweeh (in general) and during the last ten nights. This is because people are not all the same (in ability, strength and eeman), people differ, therefore it is a must for the imam to consider their situation, and to encourage them to come and to attend; when he lengthens (the prayer) it becomes difficult upon them and they become averse from attending. 

So, it is a must for him to consider that which will be a means of encouragement for them to attend, and make them desirous of attending the prayer, even if this is by shortening and not lengthening. 

A prayer wherein the people have khushoo and are at peace during it; even if short is better than a prayer which causes the lack of khushoo and causes annoyance, and negligence.
