Step 1 Make the Intention of Taraweeh.
You do not need to pronounce it vocally, but have the intention in your mind that you are praying Taraweeh.
Step 2 Raise your hands up to your ears and say Allah hu Akbar
This translates to "Allah is the greatest."
If you have some medical reasons, you are allowed to sit down.
There is an alternative opinion that the hands should be raised to the shoulders. Both ways are valid.
Step 3 Place your right hand over your left hand
Place your hands either on your navel, on your chest, or between the two; there's a difference of opinion between Islamic schools of jurisprudence. Again, all opinions are valid.
As you have started the prayer, you must stay focused.
Then fix your eyes on the place of prostration so that you don't look around.
It's greatly discouraging to look up when praying. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "People must stop raising their eyes to heaven during prayer, otherwise their sight will be taken away."
Step 4 Recite the Du'a al Istiftah
Start your Salah with Du'a al Istiftah that is Subhaana Kal'la Hum'ma Wa'bi Ham'dika Wa'Tabar Kas'muka Wa'Ta'aala Jad'duka Wala'Ilaaha Ghai'Ruk.
Step 5 Recite Surah al Fātiḥah
After Du'a Istiftah recite Surah Fateha and Surah Ikhlaas. These are key components of the prayer. You have to recite it in each of the two rak'ahs of Taraweeh.
Step 6Recite any other surah
It is encouraged for someone who has memorized the Qur'an to make each rak'ah lengthy by reciting a long surah. However, if you do not know that many surahs, you can recite the ones that you know, as long as you recite them in the correct order.
Step 7 Say "Allahu Akbar" and bend down
This is the ruku' position. Try to make your back as straight as possible, and keep relax your body. Your body does not need to be at a perfect 90-degree angle.
While bowing, say, Subhanna Rabbiyal Adheem three times. This means "Glorious is my Lord, the greatest."
Some schools of jurisprudence say that you should raise your hands and then go into ruku', while others do not. Both are valid opinions.
Step 8 Raise from ruku'
While rising up, recite Sami-Allah Huliman Hamidah. This means "Allah hears those who praise Him".
While standing up, recite Rabana Walakal Hamd (Our Lord, all praise is for you) once.
Some schools of jurisprudence say that you should raise your hands after you have raised back up, while others do not. Both are valid opinions.
Step 9 Say Allahu Akbar and prostrate
This is the sajdah position. Place your head, knees, and hands-on the floor.
Then recite Subhanna Rabbiyal A'laa (Glorious is my Lord, the Highest) three times.
Your forearms should not be on the floor.
Some schools of jurisprudence say that you should go into sajdah with your knees first, while others say you should go into sajdah with your hands first. Both are valid opinions.
Step 10 Rise from sajdah and sit on your knees
Place your left foot from ball to heel on the floor. Your right foot should be toes on the floor only. Place your hands flat on your thigh.
Step 11 Say Allahu Akbar and stand up
You have completed one rak'ah and you will need to complete another rak'ah.
Repeat all the above-explained steps and complete the second Rakat the same way.
Step 12 After the second sajdah in the second rak'ah, stay sitting
You need to recite certain du'as in this sitting position Tashahhud: At-tahiyyaatu Lillaahi wa-salaawaatu wa-tayyibaat. As-salaamu ‘alayka ayyuha-Nabiyyu wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu. As-salaamu ‘alayna wa ‘ala ‘ibaad-illaah-is-saaliheen. Ash-hadu al-aa ilaaha ill-Allaah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasooluhu
Durood: Allaahumma salli ‘ala Muhammad, wa ‘ala aali Muhammad, kama salayta ‘ala Ibraaheem, wa ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, innaka hameedun majeed. Allaahumma baarik ‘ala Muhammad, wa ‘ala aali Muhammad, kama baarakta ‘ala Ibraaheem, wa ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, innak hameedun majeed.
Step 13 Finish the prayer with tasleem
Turn your head to the right, and then the life, while saying "'As-salamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah". Continue praying two-by-two, then end your Taraweeh with dua.
