Taraweeh on Run

A person was asked as to how the Taraweeh Prayers were in there mosque. Several Rajdhani Expresses (among the fastest trains in India) pass through Aligarh. The person replied that the Taraweeh Prayers were like the fastest Rajdhani. This is our present attitude about prayers. This does not create the sense of well being that the prayers usually do. There are the studies of the children to worry about, eight units are enough, people argue. Earlier people used to encourage to indulge in obedience. Hazrat Thanwi (QS) started Tahajjud Prayers in the age of thirteen years.
