(992) What is said regarding the Witr prayer

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مَسْلَمَةَ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏عَنْ مَالِكٍ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏عَنْ مَخْرَمَةَ بْنِ سُلَيْمَانَ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏عَنْ كُرَيْبٍ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏أَنَّ ابْنَ عَبَّاسٍ أَخْبَرَهُ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏أَنَّهُ بَاتَ عِنْدَ مَيْمُونَةَ وَهِيَ خَالَتُهُ فَاضْطَجَعْتُ فِي عَرْضِ وِسَادَةٍ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏وَاضْطَجَعَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَأَهْلُهُ فِي طُولِهَا فَنَامَ حَتَّى انْتَصَفَ اللَّيْلُ أَوْ قَرِيبًا مِنْهُ فَاسْتَيْقَظَ يَمْسَحُ النَّوْمَ عَنْ وَجْهِهِ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ قَرَأَ عَشْرَ آيَاتٍ مِنْ آلِ عِمْرَانَ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏"ثُمَّ قَامَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِلَى شَنٍّ مُعَلَّقَةٍ فَتَوَضَّأَ فَأَحْسَنَ الْوُضُوءَ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ قَامَ يُصَلِّي، ‏‏‏‏‏‏فَصَنَعْتُ مِثْلَهُ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏فَقُمْتُ إِلَى جَنْبهِ فَوَضَعَ يَدَهُ الْيُمْنَى عَلَى رَأْسِي وَأَخَذَ بِأُذُنِي يَفْتِلُهَا، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ صَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ رَكْعَتَيْنِ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ رَكْعَتَيْنِ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ رَكْعَتَيْنِ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ رَكْعَتَيْنِ ثُمَّ رَكْعَتَيْنِ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ أَوْتَرَ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ اضْطَجَعَ حَتَّى جَاءَهُ الْمُؤَذِّنُ فَقَامَ فَصَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏ثُمَّ خَرَجَ فَصَلَّى الصُّبْحَ".


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)
