Work and Taraweeh

Q: My work involves me working different shifts ie: 06h00 to 14h00 , 14h00 to 22h00 , 22h00 to 06h00. During Ramadaan I can not perform all my taraweeh. Is there a way wereby I would be able to perform  all of taraweeh?

A: Perfrom the taraweeh in full during the nights that you are not working. THe nights that you are on duty, if possible, try and perform at least 8 or 10 rakaats at work. If this is not at all possible, then you may omit the taraweeh salaah. But remember you cannot omit the faradh and witr of Eshaa salaah.

There is no qadha for taraweeh. So if you missed out taraweeh, you don't need to make the qadha the following day.


At the end of all this, make lots of taubah to Allah, begging Him for Mercy and Forgiveness.

And Allah Knows Best
