Is it better to pray Taraweeh with the imam or to do tawaaf? Because women are prevented from doing tawaaf at the time of Taraweeh prayer

Question

As women are prevented from doing tawaaf during Taraweeh prayer, is it better for a man to do tawaaf or carry on with Taraweeh prayer?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

It is better to carry on with Taraweeh prayer so that he will be regarded as having spent the entire night in prayer, and there are other times when he can do tawaaf. End quote.

Majmoo‘ Fataawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (24/53).
