Tarawee, 8 Or 20?


Hanafi Muhaddith Abdul Haq Dehlvi said in his book Fatharasool mannan p.227:

The tradition of 20 rakaah which is common these days has no proof of authenticity from the prophet (pbuh) The narration of Ibn Abbas in Ibne Abi Shaiba about 20 rakaah is dhaeef (Weak).

It contradicts the Saheeh hadeeth of Ayesha (ra).

Below is a list of Hanafi scholars and their books which agrees that the hadeeth of 20 rakaats of tarawih is dhaeef (Weak) as compared to 8 rakaah.
