Taraweeh prayers to resume this Ramadan

As to women, women’s prayer halls will remain closed.

Taraweeh is derived from the Arabic word meaning “to rest and relax”, where Muslims perform many rakahs and During the standing portions of the prayer, long sections of the Qur'an are read. The Qur'an is divided into equal parts for the purpose of reading sections of equal length during each of the Ramadan nights, and so 1/30 of the Qur'an is read on successive evenings. The aim is read the entire Qur’an by the end of Ramadan.
