Q: How must a woman read taraweeh? Can I please get a step-by-step for this?
A: First perform the Esha Salaah, (4 Sunnats Ghayr Mu’akkadah – optional, 4 Fardh, 2 Sunnah Mu’akkadh, 2 Nafl – optional).
Then perform 20 Rakaats Taraaweeh in batches of two Rakaats, i.e. Salaam will be made after every two Rakaats. Note that Hanafis can also read it in batches of 4 Rakaats, i.e. 4 Rakaats with Salaam.
The Shaafi’ees cannot read the Taraaweeh Salaah in batches of four Rakaats. They must perform it in batches of two Rakaats.
Perform the Witr after completion of the Taraaweeh.
