Q. Regarding the Taraaweeh Salaat, in Durban the Huffaaz are  instructed to omit the second Durood and the Dua after Tashahhud.  Is this  proper?

A. It is not permissible to omit the  the Durood or  the second part of the Durood and Dua  after Tashahhud in Taraaweeh or in any other Salaat. It is close to kufr to omit a tenet of the Deen simply because it is not Fardh. Omission on the basis of something being ‘only’ Sunnah is called Istikhfaaf which is kufr. 

Those who are guilty of this major sin of having introduced this new shaitaani bid’ah of omitting what Allah Ta’ala has commanded are juhala at the minimum, and close to kufr at the worst. All their arguments for this new bid’ah are spurious and satanic. 

With each passing day, new shaitaani acts of bid’ah are being introduced at the behest of shaitaan. If this trend is not opposed, soon there will be a new ‘shariah’ of the nafs. But, Insha-Allah, there will always be those to demolish the villainy of the people of Bid’ah.

It comes in the Hadith that the worst thief is he who steals in his Salaat. Those who wilfully discard the Durood and the Dua from the Taraaweeh Salaat  are such thieves. They should shame themselves for  professing to be lovers of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), yet they  so impudently  discard  a Durood which takes less than a half a minute to recite. But after Taraaweeh they   waste considerable time chatting and smoking, and in gluttony.  But to devote a minute  for reciting the  Durood and the Dua commanded by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has become a huge burden for  these miscreant molvis and  huffaaz. Understand well that  whilst reciting the Durood and the Dua  after Tashahhud in any Salaat  is technically ‘Sunnat’, its recitation  practically  is Waajib. It is not permissible to  neglect and abandon a hukm of the Shariah which is technically  designated ‘Sunnat’ or ‘Mustahab’.
