Ramadaan Tarawie circuit for Ladysmith

As the holy month of Ramadaan is a day away, special arrangements have been made at all mosques of the town for offering ‘Tarawie’ prayers. For this, ‘hafiz’ (persons who have memorised the Quran) have been appointed in mosques to lead this special prayer.

Tonight will be the first Tarawie, whereby billions of Muslims will perform this special prayer after the last daily prayer, which is Esha Namaaz.

The word ‘Tarawie’ comes from an Arabic word which means to rest and relax. The prayer can be long (well over an hour), during which one stands upright to read from the Quran and performs cycles of movement (standing, bowing, sitting). After each cycle, one sits for a brief period for rest before continuing.

This is why the prayer is called Tarawie (rest prayer).

In Tarawie prayers, the hafiz recites the Quran and the ‘namazis’ listen to its verses with rapt attention. All 30 chapters of the Quran are recited in the Tarawie prayers.

During the offering of prayers, the person should be calm and composed and attentively hear the lines of the Quran which are recited.

In keeping with a trend that the late AK Panchbhaya started decades ago, I will endeavour to update the local Muslim community as to who will lead the Tarawie prayers in Ladysmith during this month of Ramadaan.

It is my fervent prayer that AKP be granted the highest abode in Paradise.
