Assalam Alakium,
InshAllah this will be my first time praying the qiyām prayers.  But I do not know when we are supposed to start, what time we start praying them, is it after Isha prayers?  How many raakaats do we pray? I've read that,
"It is Sunnah to perform i'tikāf  during these nights for whoever is able." what is i'tikat? Can someone please explain these to me?

Thank you:)

Walaikumassalam
Technically, taraweeh, tahajjud and qiyam ul layl are all the same. But, we can go into that some other time, inshAllah. During Ramadan, qiyam or tahajjud is referred to what people pray in the last third of the night. Technically, you can pray it after isha until fajr and you can pray as many rakats as you like, in twos and at the end a single rakat as witr. But assuming that you're praying taraweeh after isha, and you're going by the Ramadan definition of qiyam, it would be be late in the night.

Itikaf is something like a retreat done in the last ten days of Ramadan. People are supposed to leave their homes and go stay in the masjid for the last ten days and engage in extra worship that they wouldn't do in the other days. As a side note, the first of the last ten days begins with maghrib on the 19th day of Ramadan. So you're supposed to get into the masjid before that.

PS - Keep up the spirit sister and make dua for me.

Sis palipeach, there is a difference of opinion among the scholars as to whether itikaf can be done at home, and this is specifically for women, men have no choice but to go to the mosque. Typically, it has been the hanafi scholars and more so those belonging to the subcontinent who have allowed women to perform itikaf at home. The other scholars, typically the salafi ones(and I agree with their opinion) say that, be it man or woman, itikaf cannot be done anywhere except at the mosque. I'll post more about this tomorrow inshAllah. There is a chance that I may not be able to get up for suhoor tomorrow if I stay awake anymore Tongue
