The Taraweeh Prayers are a part of Ramadan, They are offered along with the usual Isha Prayers (night-time-prayers). They are longer then usual prayers, and it is customary for the prayer Imam to complete the Holy Quran at least once in Taraweeh Prayers throughout the month of Ramadan. Hence, the people offering Taraweeh prayers can benefit simply by listening to the Quran. And what better way to listen to the Quran other than in the beautiful voices of Imam-e-Kaaba and Haram?
In this holy and blessed month of Ramadan, Google presents a gift to more than a billion Muslims all around the World by launching a YouTube Channel where you can watch and listen to Live Taraweeh Prayers, and see special programs related to Ramadan Kareem. The prayers and other programs are broadcasted live through YouTube, with good Audio and Video streaming quality. This is indeed a great gift to those who haven't been there, or want to listen to the Imam-e-Kaaba recite the Holy Quran during Taraweeh Prayers. The Channel was made live on 20th June. During the time when there are no on-going prayers, the Channel shows other streams from Masjid-al-Haram and the Kaaba.
Besides this live prayer stream, Google has also set up a Channel for people to see live television programs from over 50 channels during the month of Ramadan. These programs are aimed at educating people and teaching them a lesson through the use of dramas and other such programs.
That is not all! Google has also organized 30 hangouts for the 30 days of Ramadan. Since specially made Iftaar meals are traditional in Ramadan, these Hangouts will feature the best Chefs sharing their recipes. Moreover, it will have doctors giving out advice about balanced diets, especially in Ramadan. Other than that, there will be literary and religious discussions as well, through which you can learn a lot.
If you are interested, you can follow the Google Arabia Page on Google+, and find out about schedules, agendas, and other such updates. This is really great venture, and we thank Google for it. Muslims all around the World can take its full advantage, and learn a lot of things while being entertained! Hope you like this post.....
