Should I pray all 20 rakaats taraweeh during Ramadan to be able to pray tahajjud? Is it ok if I pray only 8 rakasts and the pray tahajjud? Will my tahajjud be accepted in this manner?

20 rakaats of Taraweeh is sunnah muakkadah and should be read. Leaving taraweeh is a sin. But tahajjud is nafil and there is no sin in leaving it. As such, read all your 20 rakaats of taraweeh and by sehri read at least 2 rakaats of tahajjud.
