Ibn Seereen would pray [the voluntary prayer] with a mus.haf by his side, and if he hesitated [in his recitation] he would look inside it.
[As a rule] there is no harm in you praying it (the taraaweeh prayer) at home, since it is [a] voluntary [prayer].
We see many people who only pray during Ramadhaan, and when Ramadhaan ends, they abandon the masaajid. So what do you say to these people [O] noble Shaykh, and may Allaah reward you with good?
What is the ruling regarding women attending the taraaweeh [prayer]? And what is best [for them] in that regard?
