New Mosque In Taman Jaya, Jalan Pusara Opened For Friday Prayer

On 29th July 2011, I went to the Taman Jaya Mosque in Jalan Pusara, Kuala Terengganu for a Friday Prayer.

That Friday was the first Friday when people can perform their Friday Prayers at the mosque. 

I walked to the mosque with my father since it is near my grandmother’s house 🙂 🙂 🙂

It is a beautiful new mosque.

My father took some pictures of the mosque after our prayers.

Interesting patterns and colors that match the color of the carpet outside the mosque also provides a comfortable environment to worship rituals celebrated in conjunction with the surrounding population tarawih.
The sign by the gate of the mosque has not been written and I don't know the officiate name of the mosque yet.

Solat Tarawih

Now is Ramadan; the Muslim’s holy month.

During Ramadan we fast, perform the solat Tarawih and read the Quran.

We perform the solat Tarawih only in Ramadan.

When we do the solat Tarawih, we will get lots of extra rewards from Allah.

But first we need to pray our daily solats:

  1. Subuh 2 raka’ats

  2. Zohor 4 raka’ats

  3. Asar 4 raka’ats

  4. Maghrib 3 raka’ats

  5. Isyak 4 raka’ats

I think it’s easier to mark the raka’ats on a piece of paper in case we forget how many raka’ats we had prayed.

When I  perform the solat Tarawih, I pray 20 raka’ats.

That means I pray ten times because each of the prayer has 2 raka’ats.

People usually pray the solat Tarawih 8 raka’ats or 20 raka’ats.

After the solat Tarawih, I first do the solat Witir 2 raka’ats.

After that I solat Witir 1 raka’at.

The total raka’ats in solat Tarawih is in even numbers but the raka’ats of solat Witir must be in odd numbers.

Solat Tarawih

Now is Ramadan, during Ramadan we fast, solat tarawih and read the Quran.

We do the solat Tarawih at night after solat Isya’.

After solat Tarawih, I do the solat Witr.

People normally do the solat Tarawih 8 or 20 raka’at.

I usually solat Tarawih 20 raka’at and solat Witr 3 raka’at.

I solat with my father.

So all together I solat 23 raka’at.

Last year I followed my father to the mosque or masjid for solat tarawih.

But this year we solat at home because of the Influenza A (HINI).

After solat I eat fruits, dessert or cookies before I drink my milk and sleep.
