Question: How do I perform the witir prayers?

 

 

 

Answer: Witir, in Arabic, means ‘odd numbers’. Witir prayers can be performed on any night, but it is highly encouraged in the month of Ramadan. It can be done either individually or in a congregation. The minimum is 1 rakaat and can be done in sets of 3 rakaat, 5 rakaat, 7rakaat, 9 rakaat, and up to a maximum of 11 rakaat. Imam Abu Daud and An-Nasa’I have reported a hadith narrated by Abu Ayyub: “The Holy Prophet peace be upon him said, “Witir prayers are true. Whoever wants to perform five rakaat, do it. Whoever wants to perform three rakaat, do three rakaat. And whoever wishes to do one rakaat, do so.”
