Bukhari: Volume 3, Book 32, Number 227:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever prayed at night the whole month of Ramadan out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven." Ibn Shihab (a sub-narrator) said, "Allah's Apostle died and the people continued observing that (i.e. Nawafil offered individually, not in congregation), and it remained as it was during the Caliphate of Abu Bakr and in the early days of 'Umar's Caliphate." 'Abdur Rahman bin 'Abdul Qari said, "I went out in the company of 'Umar bin Al-Khattab one night in Ramadan to the mosque and found the people praying in different groups. A man praying alone or a man praying with a little group behind him. So, 'Umar said, 'In my opinion I would better collect these (people) under the leadership of one Qari (Reciter) (i.e. let them pray in congregation!)'. So, he made up his mind to congregate them behind Ubai bin Ka'b. Then on another night I went again in his company and the people were praying behind their reciter. On that, 'Umar remarked, 'What an excellent Bid'a (i.e. innovation in religion) this is; but the prayer which they do not perform, but sleep at its time is better than the one they are offering.' He meant the prayer in the last part of the night. (In those days) people used to pray in the early part of the night."
Can anyone explain what is the meaning of Bold part of mentioned hadith?
What does mean prayer last part of the night?
What does mean pray in the early part of the night?
I did understand it. The answer to your questions is in Muwatta Imam Maalik already. Syyidina Umar Radhi Allahu anh called the taraweeh in congregation as a good innovation. He said that the prayer later on is better ( tahajjud ). If you go to Madinah, both prayers are performed i.e. Taraweeh + Tahajjud with jama'ah in the last 10 days of Ramadhan. If you were under the impression that Syyidina Umar Radhi Allahu anh joined people for Tahajjud, then you're mistaken.
پڑھ پڑھ عالم فاضل ہویا کدے اپنے آپ نوں پڑھیا نہیں
جا جا وَڑدا مندرمسیتی کدی نفس اپنے وچ وَڑیا ای نہیں
لڑدا ایں روز شیطان نال کدی نفس اپڑے نال توں لڑیا ای نہیں
بلھے شاہ اسمانی اُڈدیاں پھَڑدا ایں جہڑا گھر بیٹھا اونوں پھڑیا ای نہیں
