What is the difference between the salaat at-taraweeh, salaat al-tahajjud, salaat al-lail and salaat al-qiyam? Please explain me in the context of Ramadhan also.
Sala’h al-Tahajjud, Sala’h al-Layl and Qiyaam al-Layl1 are all different names given to the Tahajjud prayers. Sala’h al-Taraweeh is also, in fact, the Tahajjud prayer, but is offered after the `Ishaa prayer rather than at its original time, i.e. after midnight. For details regarding the Taraweeh and the Tahajjud prayers, please refer to my earlier questions2.
I hope this helps.
