Nabi ﷺ Prayed Taraweeh for only for 3 Days. Then Why Salafies praying Taraweeh for whole Month..??
Where you get this practice from…?? You get this non other Than umar ibne khattab. If you Take the Number of days from umar ibne khattab then why you won’t Take the Number Rakat…?
Our Answer :
Umar ibne khattab never ordered sahaba to Pray 20 Rakat Taraweeh. there is not a Single “Sahi Muttasil Hadeeth” which proves that Umar Radhi Allahu Anhu prayed 20 rakaah prayer OR ordered ubay ibn ka’ab to lead the prayer for 20 rakaah prayer.
Rather Umar (radi-Allaahu ’anhu) ordered Ubayy ibn Ka’ab and Tameem ad-Daaree to lead the people in 11 rak’ahs.
[This hadeeth is mention in Muwatta Imam Malik, Sunan Al Kubra of Bayhaqi and also in many other books. The chain of this hadeeth is Absolutely authentic and all its narrators are Thiqqah and All these Narrators are from Sahi Bukhari and Sahi Muslim ]

Did Umar ordered Ubay ibne kab 11 rakaat or 20 rakat

Secondly : Prophet ﷺ led his companions offering Taraweeh prayer in congregation for 3 nights then fourth night he did not come out to them. When morning came he said:
“Nothing prevented me from coming out to you except the fact that I feared that it would be made obligatory for you.”*
Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1129. According to the version narrated by Muslim (761): “But I feared that night prayers would be made obligatory for you and you would not be able to do them.”
*So here prophet s.a.w intended to Pray Taraweeh for whole month. But he dint prayed because he feared that it may became fard.*
The Prophet ﷺ stated the reason why he did not persist in offering this prayer in congregation, which is that he feared that it might be made obligatory. This reason cased to be applicable after the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) died, because when he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) died, the wahy (revelation) ceased and there was no longer any worry that it might be made obligatory. Once the reason, which was the fear of it being made obligatory, disappeared with the cessation of the wahy, then the fact that it is Sunnah to offer this prayer in congregation resumed.
Imam Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
This indicates that praying qiyaam in Ramadaan is one of the Sunnahs of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and is recommended and encouraged. It was not introduced by ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab, rather he revived something that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) loved and approved of. Nothing stopped him from doing it regularly except the fear that it might be made obligatory upon his ummah. He (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was kind and compassionate towards his ummah. ‘Umar knew from the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) that the obligatory duties would not be increased or decreased after his death (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), so he revived this practice and enjoined it upon the people. That happened in 14 AH, and ‘Umar has the honour of being the one who revived this Sunnah.
Al-Tamheed, 8/108, 109
Shaikh.Ul Islam ibne Taymiyyah said :
With Regard to Qiyam in Ramadan
Messenger of Allaah ﷺ introduced this to his ummah, and he led them in prayer for a number of nights, because at his time they used to pray in congregation and individually. But he did not persist in leading them in one congregation, lest that be made obligatory for them. When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) died, sharee’ah was established (and would not change after that). When ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) became caliph, he united them behind one imam, Ubayy ibn Ka’b, who united the people in one congregation on the orders of ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him). ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) was one of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, of whom the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I urge you to adhere to my Sunnah and the way of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs after me; cling tightly to it.” So what he did was Sunnah but he said, “What a good innovation this is,” because it was an innovation in the linguistic sense, as they were doing something that they had not done during the life of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), i.e., gathering to do this, but it is Sunnah in the shar’i sense.”
