O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you,
that ye may (learn) self-restraint

Day 20 Taraweeh Makkah Prayers Videos Ramadan 2009

Day 20 Taraweeh Makkah Prayers Videos - Ramadan 2009.

Please share the address of this site with others. Videos will be kept on this site for a long time incha allah. Therefore you may visit it at any time. Just bookmark the site address on your browser and/or write it down on your diary so that you do not lose it. More videos will be added inshallah with a focus on Quran, Islam and Ramadan.

A general note which applies to the Taraweeh video series from Makkah. We could have posted only one Video encompassing all prayers, but we thought of the idea of dividing the prayers into sets of two rakaats each so that one call follow them with possible breaks, and to complete the set with the duas that follow the prayers. This makes a total of 11 to 12 videos, since typically the number of rakaats are 20, and the prayers involve two rakaats, and then a last rakaat in which the prayers are said. Watch the last two videos of the first day to understand how Taraweeh and duas are performed if you are not familiar with the process.

In doing this work, we were lucky to find a person who already had a similar idea, and already made the videos, and posted them on you tube. May Allah bless him, and we wish to recognize his work here.

Our contribution is mainly to post the videos here, out of youtube where they may not be easy to locate, in addition to avoiding being in contact with non-Islamic videos as is typically the case when one visits youtube.

Posting the videos here might also make these videos appropriate to watch in a family setting, particularly in presence of kids and other family members. It also makes the experience more rewarding from a concentration point of view as one can watch or pray along the video, AND then move to the next video after each Tasleem.

A personal reason why we thought to divide the video rather than uploading them as one whole video was that we wanted to pray at home when we could not go to the mosque (due for instance to distance and possible lack of car) and we wanted to "perform" the Taraweeh at home using the replay as replacement of imam readings. We do not know if this is an acceptable practice, so you are responsible for what you do with this videos. We recommend that you consult an imam on this matter. It is however our opinion, as non scholars in islamic matters, that these videos can be used as a last resort, for instance by Muslims living in remote areas, and/or not living in daar al islam where they cannot find mosques nearby particularly at night.

Of course these videos are great to watch after your Taraweeh at your local mosque, and during anytime afterwards, as they are led by some of the great imams of our times.

Please share the address of this site with others. May Allah accept your prayers and ours, and please pray for us.
