Now is Ramadan; the Muslim’s holy month.
During Ramadan we fast, perform the solat Tarawih and read the Quran.
We perform the solat Tarawih only in Ramadan.
When we do the solat Tarawih, we will get lots of extra rewards from Allah.
But first we need to pray our daily solats:
Subuh 2 raka’ats
Zohor 4 raka’ats
Asar 4 raka’ats
Maghrib 3 raka’ats
Isyak 4 raka’ats
I think it’s easier to mark the raka’ats on a piece of paper in case we forget how many raka’ats we had prayed.
When I perform the solat Tarawih, I pray 20 raka’ats.
That means I pray ten times because each of the prayer has 2 raka’ats.
People usually pray the solat Tarawih 8 raka’ats or 20 raka’ats.
After the solat Tarawih, I first do the solat Witir 2 raka’ats.
After that I solat Witir 1 raka’at.
The total raka’ats in solat Tarawih is in even numbers but the raka’ats of solat Witir must be in odd numbers.
Last night was the last tahlil at Jiddah’s house.
Jiddah is my father’s mother.
Her name is Wan Rahimah bt Wan Ngah.
We had tahlil for 3 nights.
There were lots of people at the tahlil.
At the tahlil I sat with my father.
The tahlil started after Isyak.
I read Al- Fatihah, Al-Ikhlas, Al-Falaq, An-Nas, Al- Fatihah, Al- Baqarah, La illaha illah (100 times), doa and doa again.
Next I ate nasi minyak and some kuih.
The tahlil ended late at night.
