Taraweeh salaah for women.

Q. Can you please tell me if Taraweeh salaat is compulsory for women and if she has to pray the Taraweeh salaat at home if she does not go to the mosque on a particular night?

A. Taraweeh Salaah is Sunnah Al Mu’akadah (an emphasized Sunnah) for both men and women and must not be neglected. (Al Sharh Al Kabeer Sharh Munyat Al Musalli pg. 400; Shami vol.2 pg.43).

If the woman does not go to Mosque on a particular night, she must pray her Taraweeh Salaah at home.

And Allah knows best.
