Taraaweeh prayer on the night preceding the day of ‘Eed

Reference: Fataawa Ramadhaan – Volume 2, Page 842, Fatwa No.836

Question: With respect to the taraaweeh prayer on the night [preceding] the day of ‘Eed, is it to be completed or not?

Response: If the [sighting of the] moon has been confirmed on the 30th night of Ramadhaan, then the taraaweeh prayer is not [to be prayed], and nor is the night prayer. And this is because the taraaweeh prayer and the night prayer are [specific] to Ramadhaan, so if the end of the month is confirmed then they are not to be completed, so the people depart from their masaajid to their homes.
