    Qiyam ul layl and Tharaweeh are two different prayers.
    Qiyamullayl is performed by prophet (SAW) all nights of the year and most time of his prophethood.
    Tharaweeh is brought into later in Ramadhan and he (SAW) prayed in the mosque only three days and later at home. Later Umar (RA) organized Tharaweeh by jamaat and it was 20 rakahath as practiced even now at masjidul Haramain.
    We can see even now in many masjids in Arab and Asian countries first praying 20 rakahath Tharaveeh, and later after midnight praying Qiyamullayl and Witr (8+3)

    Follow Salafussaliheen and their practices.
