Continuing to pray the taraaweeh prayers

Reference: Fataawa Ramadhaan – Volume 2, Page 837, Fatwa No.831
Fiqh al-Ibaadaat libni ‘Uthaymeen – Page 205-206

Question: Whoever prays the taraaweeh [prayers] must he then continue to pray them throughout Ramadhaan?

Response: No! He does not have to continue [to pray them] because it is a recommended (Sunnah) prayer in that if he prays them then he is rewarded and if he leaves them then he is not a sinner, however [in leaving them] he misses out on a lot of good as we have said [before].

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
