Perfecting the Proofs that the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) Performed 20 Rak’ats of Tarāwīh Prayer

 

In this special treatise by Dr. Abul Hasan Hussain Ahmed, a newly discovered Hadith from the well known Sahabi, Jabir ibn Abdullah (ra) has been mentioned with a systematic and detailed analysis of its authenticity probably for the first time in the English language.  The narration in question being as follows and as mentioned in a unique work from the Hadith genre known as al-Mashyakha al-Baghdadiyya by the famous Hadith scholar, al-Hāfiz Abu Tahir al-Silafi (d. 576 AH):

 

‘That the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) came out at night in Ramadan and prayed with the people 24 raka’ts.”

 

The figure of 24 rak’ats refers to four rak’ats of Isha prayer followed by twenty rak’ats of Tarāwīh, which was all prayed in congregation on those few nights that the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) actually lead Tarāwīh in congregation.

 

In addition to the above narration which is also found in a work known as ’rikh Jurjān by al-Hāfiz Abūl Qasim Hamza Ibn Yusuf al-Sahmi (d. 427 AH), the well known narration from the Sahabi, Abdullah ibn Abbas (ra) has also been analytically reviewed.  The latter narration being as follows with the wording recorded in the Musannaf of Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shayba (d. 235 AH):

 

“The Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) would pray in Ramadan 20 rak’ats and the witr.”

 

The above narrations have been presented within this work with reference to the actual manuscripts and their images have also been included for the benefit of the keen minded researchers.

 

The following diagram is a representation of the chains of transmission (Asānid) that were discussed in a thorough manner within the treatise:

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

20 Rakaats Taraweeh.

The issue of the amount of Rakaa`aat that Taraaweeh Salaah is has in recent times become a hot topic, that every year without fail we hear the same old arguments being propogated that 20 Rakaa`aat actually has not real basis and that the “real” Sunnah is to make 8 only, all these are baseless claims which have only surfaced now after more than a thousand years of scholars having consensus on 20, while these people would have us believe that none of this really took place.

And this debate always seems to crop up every year just before Ramadhaan starts.

For this reason I am posting a link to a book called “20 Rakaats Taraweeh“, wherein the author has systematically taken each claim of the modernists and thoroughly refuted with proof, and shows what exactly is the correct view in this regard.

So it is a book I would recommend to all.

Wallaahu A`lam.

Detailed description of Salaah with evidences for the Hanafi Madhab

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

Often these days we hear people making ignorant claims about the Madhaahib, and the Hanafi Madhab in particular, that the A’immah did not have a basis for many of their rulings, and some rulings were based on weak or even fabricated narrations and other such false accusations.

 

Because of this, some `Ulamaa had taken it upon themselves to shed some light on just one issue which is possibly the most commonly spoken about, and that is Salaah.

 

What follows are three books written in english on the subject.

 

1: The Salah of a Believer by Shaykh Riyadhul Haq – Download as PDF.

This book mentions each posture of salaah alongside the ahaadeeth which are reported concerning it, as well as the authenticity level of each narration according to the Muhadditheen.

 

2: Fiqh al-Imam by Mufti Abdur Rahman Mangera – Download as PDF.

This book deals with each aspect of the salaah, focusing more on the understanding of the Ahaadeeth which have been narrated regarding it.

 

3: Authenticity of Salah by Shaykh Muhammad Ilyas Faisal – Download as PDF.

This is a short book which deals with salaah limiting it just to the ahaadeeth for the sake of brevity.

 

All in all these three books are sufficient for anyone to see the amount of research and effort that the `Ulamaa had done when they gave a ruling on any particular matter.

 

May Allaah grant us all the understanding.
