(990) What is said regarding the Witr prayer

Narrated Ibn Umar: Once a person asked Allah's Apostle about the night prayer. Allah's Apostle replied, The night prayer is offered as two Rakat followed by two Rakat and so on and if anyone is afraid of the approaching dawn (Fajr prayer) he should pray one Raka and this will be a Witr for all the Rakat which he has prayed before.

(992) What is said regarding the Witr prayer

Narrated Ibn `Abbas: Once I passed the night in the house of Maimuna (his aunt). I slept across the bed while Allah's Apostle and his wife slept length-wise. The Prophet slept till midnight or nearly so and woke up rubbing his face and recited ten verses from Surat Al-`Imran. Allah's Apostle went towards a leather skin and performed ablution in the most perfect way and then stood for the prayer. I did the same and stood beside him. The Prophet put his right hand on my head, twisted my ear and then prayed two rak`at five times and then ended his prayer with witr. He laid down till the Mu'adh-dhin came then he stood up and offered two rak`at (Sunna of Fajr prayer) and then went out and offered the Fajr prayer. (See Hadith No. 183, Vol. 1)

(993) What is said regarding the Witr prayer

Narrated `Abdullah bin `Umar: The Prophet said, Night prayer is offered as two rak`at followed by two rak`at and so on, and if you want to finish it, pray only one rak`a which will be witr for all the previous rak`at. Al-Qasim said, Since we attained the age of puberty we have seen some people offering a three-rak`at prayer as witr and all that is permissible. I hope there will be no harm in it.

(994) What is said regarding the Witr prayer

Narrated `Aisha: Allah's Apostle used to pray eleven rak`at at night and that was his night prayer and each of his prostrations lasted for a period enough for one of you to recite fifty verses before Allah's Apostle raised his head. He also used to pray two rak`at (Sunna) before the (compulsory) Fajr prayer and then lie down on his right side till the Mu'adh-dhin came to him for the prayer.

(995) The timing of the Salat-ul-Witr (Witr prayer)

Narrated Anas bin Seereen: I asked Ibn `Umar, What is your opinion about the two rak`at before the Fajr (compulsory) prayer, as to prolonging the recitation in them? He said, The Prophet (p.b.u.h) used to pray at night two rak`at followed by two and so on, and end the prayer by one rak`a witr. He used to offer two rak`at before the Fajr prayer immediately after the Adhan. (Hammad, the sub-narrator said, That meant (that he prayed) quickly.)

(999) To offer the Witr prayer while riding on an animal

Narrated Sa`id bin Yasar: I was going to Mecca in the company of `Abdullah bin `Umar and when I apprehended the approaching dawn, I dismounted and offered the witr prayer and then joined him. `Abdullah bin `Umar said, Where have you been? I replied, I apprehended the approaching dawn so I dismounted and prayed the witr prayer. `Abdullah said, Isn't it sufficient for you to follow the good example of Allah's Apostle? I replied, Yes, by Allah. He said, Allah's Apostle used to pray witr on the back of the camel (while on a journey).
