Q5: What is the right opinion as to the number of taraweeh rak’as? And what is preferable in regard to Isha sunna prayer: to be prayed in two or four rak’as?

A5: The Prophet — pbuh — prayed the Ramadhan night prayer — subsequently known as taraweeh — in eight rak’as. Then the two Rightly Guided Prophet’s Successors (Caliphs) added more rak’as. This addition by these Caliphs — may Allah be pleased with them — is a proof that it is not limited to any number.
