Reward for tarawih prayers
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
To the best of our knowledge, there is absolutely nothing in the authentic and established Sunnah which even remotely resembles or lists the specific rewards quoted above for each night one offers the supererogatory tarawih prayers in Ramadan.
Abu Hurairah reports that the Prophet (saws) would encourage people to perform the special night prayers during Ramadan (tarawih) without commanding them as obligatory and he (saws) said: "Whoever prays during the nights of Ramadan [tarawih] with a firm belief and hoping for reward, all of his previous sins would be forgiven."
Only Allah and His Messenger (saws) have the exclusive right to declare what reward one will receive for what worship.if one takes the liberty to invent a rite of worship or specify the rewards for a worship from themselves when Allah and His Messenger (saws) have not sanctioned it, Allah is our witness, they would be held severely accountable in the Presence of the Lord Most Majestic on the Day of Judgment for attributing a lie to Allah and His Messenger (saws)!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraf verse 37:
Then, who can be more wicked than the one who invents falsehood and attributes them to Allah!
Sahih Muslim Hadith 7147 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: he who attributes any falsehood to me, he should in fact find his abode in the Hell-Fire.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
