Short Surahs in Taraweeh

Q. Is it permissible to read short Surahs in Taraweeh Namaaz?


A: The Sunnah is to recite the entire Qur’aan at least once in Taraweeh. Short Surahs should only be recited if there is no Hafiz available. Notwithstanding this, the Taraweeh is valid if short Surahs are recited, for short Surahs are also part of the Qur’aan-e-Kareem. (Al-Fataawal Hindiyyah, Fiqhul-Ibadaat)
