We understand that this is a time to be devout. We all wish we had the time to pray for as long as we wanted, but with only 9 hours from Maghrib until Fajr, we are very short on time. So, on days when you can’t afford to pray for 3 out of those 9 hours, here’s a list of mosques that will give you the opportunity to pray Taraweeh without taking too long.
