بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم


In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful 


 


Answer:


 


Eight rakaats of Taraweeh is not proven from Sunnah. Twenty short rakaat will, therefore, be preferable as its Sunnah Muakiddah and should not be missed unless one has a valid excuse. (Bahishti Zewar Chapter of Taraweeh)
