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.
This morning at 5:25 am, I watched the bedil at my
nenek’s house in Kuala Terengganu. The bedil sound is
boooooommmm and after the fire works came out it
sounds tssssssssssssssss. The fire works was beautiful.
I can hear the bedil 3 times a day. 1st and 2nd for imsak
and 3rd for iftar to break our fast. Bedil is a huge fire
works. It is not dangerous because they use a timer to
fire the bedil. My dad said that long time ago they used a
cannon. Cannon is dangerous.
