Question :

What is the ruling on delaying Ish`a and Taraweeh prayers until a late time of the night ?


The Answer :

All praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds, and may His peace and blessings be upon His Prophet Mohammad: The time of Isha and Taraweeh (the night prayer during the month of Ramadhaan) prayers begins after the red twilight disappears-end of Maghrib time-until the dawn breaks, but it is a condition that Isha prayer be offered before the Taraweeh prayer. “ Ghayat Talkiees Al-Mouraad Min Fatawa Ibn Zeyad” {p.20} stated: “The time of Taraweeh prayer is after offering Isha prayer until the break of dawn. If one offered it before Isha, knowingly, then it isn`t accounted for, but if it wasn`t offered as such, then it is most likely to be considered absolute supererogatory prayer similar to offering the Zuhr Sunnah thinking that its time had begun, although it hadn`t. ” Accordingly, there is no harm in offering the Taraweeh prayer, even at a late time, provided that it is offered after Isha prayer, but before the break of dawn. And Allah knows best.
