Do you think Umer ibn Khattab (RA) did invented a bidaa' making people pray Taraweeh Salat with Jamaa't & 20 Rakaa't? Because Abu Bakar (RA) & Holy Prophet (SAWW) never did that?

Omer, may Allah be pleased with him didn’t invent or innovate. It was the Prophet salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam the first to pray Taraweeh for 4 nights and the companions would pray behind them. The Prophet stopped praying it because he was afraid that Allah would make I mandatory upon the Muslims. That is why, when he died, what he was afraid of was no longer there. That is why Omer reintroduced this beautiful Sunnah.
