"Tarawi" 20 rakath or 8 rakath ?

We all say "Tarawi" prayer in Ramadan, Alhamdulillah!

I will be thankful if anybody (brother or sister ) in Islam can give reference with any hadith about the just rakath of Tarawi prayer, which we perform in Ramadan. Is it sunnati-muakkada or sunnati-gaira-muakada ?

salam alaykum, sorry I dont have any hadith to quote you but upon asking a learned person in the hanafi madhab he told me that for hanafis taraweeh is sunna muakkada and it is 20 rakats.

As for other schools of thought they differ and there is no concept of sunnah maukada or wajeeb in salah. Only hanafis have this for other madhabs it is either fard or sunnah.

And Allah knows best.
