Second Hadith

Second Hadith

 Evidence of 20 Raka’at of Taraweeh in the era of Hadhrat Umar Al Farooq

In the era of Hadhrat ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him), people would offer 20 Raka’at of Taraweeh.  As mentioned in this Hadith:

عَنْ يَزِيدَ بْنِ رُومَانَ قَالَ : كَانَ النَّاسُ يَقُومُونَ فِى زَمَانِ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ رَضِىَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ فِى رَمَضَانَ بِثَلاَثٍ وَعِشْرِينَ رَكْعَةً. 


Translation: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Yazid bin Rooman (May Allah be well pleased with him) that he said:  In the era of Hadhrat ‘Umar Bin Khattab (May Allah be well pleased with him) people used to offer 23 Raka’at (20 Raka’at of Taraweeh and 3 Witr).

 Allama Badruddin ‘Aini (May Allah shower His mercy on him) writes in the interpretation of this Hadith:

 قال ابن عبد البر هذا محمول على أن الثلاث للوتر

 Translation: Allama Ibn Abdul Barr (May Allah shower His mercy on him) said: "23 Raka’at means 20 Raka’at of Taraweeh and 3 of Witr."  (Umdatul Qari Sharh Sahih Bukhari, Kitab Ut Taraweeh, Vol 8, Pg No: 245)
