Question:

 

Would it be makruh to have 2 Taraweeh in one Masjid (same Jamat Khana), one at an earlier time, one later?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

The karaha (according to one of the two Hanafi opinions)1 of having more than one jama’ah is related to the fard/obligatory prayers in a local masjid with a fixed imam and muezzin. The tarawih prayers are sunna and do not fall into this category therefore it would not be makruh to have two jama’ah of taraweeh due to the needs of the people.
