Q: Can a person who does not read his 5 daily salah perform taraweeh salah? This person performs his jumuah salaah.


A: Taraweeh Salaah will only be valid after performing the Esha Salaah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

قال العلامة الحلبي: “وفي القنية: لو تركوا الجماعة في الفرض، ليس لهم أن يصلوا التراويح جماعة لأنها تبع للجماعة. (الحلبي الكبير)
