Dividing the Night Prayer into Two Sessions During the Last Ten Days of Ramadaan
by The Albaani Site
Questioner: What happens these days, O Shaikh, during the last ten days of Ramadaan, where they split the prayer, the night prayer [tarawih], into two, [praying ten rak’ahs] at the start of the night [after ishaa] and [then ten more a few hours later] at the end [‘qiyaam al-lail’], this having become something permanent?
Al-Albaani: It’s an innovation.
