When Should I Pray the Witr Prayer?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaykum,

When should I pray the witr prayer?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray that you are well, insha’Allah.

I sent a response to the other questions.

You should pray Witr after `Isha’, unless you habitually wake up before Fajr with enough time to complete the Witr before the Fajr adhan. It may be safer to pray before sleep.

And Allah alone knows best.
