Fourth: It has been ordered through the Quran Shareef to perform Tahajjud prayer towards Syeedul Mursalin Imamul Mursalin ‘Hu’dur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam. For example, Allah paak the greatest says,
ومن الليل فتهجد ببه نافلة لك
Meaning:- Stay up at night for reciting the Quran Shareef (and to pray). This is an extra for you. (Bani Israil 79)
It has also been stated,
ياايها المزمل قم الليل الاقليلا….
Meaning:- O you who wraps himself [in clothing], Arise [to pray] the night, except for a little – (Surah Mujjammil 1-2)
It has been stated in Hadeeth Shareef regarding Taraweeh prayer,
ان الله تبارك وتعالى فرض صيام رمضان عليكم وسننت لكم قيامه. (نسائى شريف)
Meaning:- “Verily Allah paak Rabbul Alamin has made fasting during Ramadan mandatory for you. And I have made Taraweeh prayer Sunnat for you.” (Nasaye Shareef 1/308)
Therefore, it is again proved that, Taraweeh and Tahajjud pareyed aren’t the same since the order for performing Tahajjud prayer has come through the Quran Shareef or Wahiye Matlu. And Taraweeh prayer has come though Hadeeth Shareef or Wahiya Gayre Matlu. In this aspect, the difference can be seen once again.
