    Assalamu Alaikkum wa rahamatullahi wa barakatuhu,

    Witr is a stressed Sunnah that a believer should maintain. Anyone who performs it intermittently is not sinful, but they are advised to observe it regularly. It is permissible to perform Shaf` (Prayer with an even number of units) during the daytime in place of a missed Witr, because the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to do so. It is authentically reported on the authority of `Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) that she said: If sleep or illness prevented the Prophet (peace be upon him) from Salat-ul-Layl (optional Prayer at night), he would offer twelve Rak`ahs during the daytime. (Related by Muslim in his Sahih) The Prophet (peace be upon him) would, most times, perform eleven Rak`ahs during the night, offering Taslim after every two, and would conclude them with a single Rak`ah as Witr. If sleep or illness prevented him from doing so, he (peace be upon him) would offer twelve Rak`ahs during the daytime as `Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reported. Accordingly, if a Muslim is accustomed to performing five Rak`ahs at night and is prevented from doing so by sleep or any other impediment, they may perform six Rak`ahs in the daytime, offering Taslim after every two. The same applies if they are accustomed to performing three Rak`ahs, they may perform four Rak`ahs, performing Taslim after every two.

    If they are accustomed to performing seven Rak`ahs, they may perform eight Rak`ahs, offering Taslim after every two.
    May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.

    Assalamo alaikum wa rahmatullah.


    Witr prayer is one of the greatest acts of worship that draw one closer to Allaah. Some of the scholars – the Hanafis – even thought that it is one of the obligatory prayers, but the correct view is that it is one of the confirmed Sunnahs (Sunnah mu’akkadah) which the Muslim should observe regularly and not neglect.

    Imam Ahmad (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Whoever neglects Witr is a bad man whose testimony should not be accepted. This indicates that Witr prayer is something that is confirmed.

    We may sum up the manner of offering Witr prayer as follows:

    Assalamu Alaikum,

    I have noticed that answer was from a forum and not an answer by a scholar. So I made another post with a link from Islam Q&A. I made a mistake with not checking with the authenticity of the first post.

    The du'a of Qunoot is Sunnah and insha'Allah this will correct what I posted earlier:
    http://islamqa.info/en/ref/9061

    I hope you all please forgive me for any wrong information I may have posted. I have learned from this and insha'Allah I won't make a mistake like this again.

    JazakAllah khair sister.
