Taraweeh is the Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammad ﷺ. Moreover, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and His companions used to engage with Quran in the month of Ramadan more than any other month. So, taraweeh is a great opportunity to adhere to these two Sunnahs of our beloved Prophet ﷺ: Qiyam ul Layle & Quran.

5) You gain health & psychological benefits
