Question & Answer

Can we pray witar Wajib after Tehjud prayer?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Narrated by Abdullah bin Umar The Prophet (saws) said, "Make Witr as your last prayer at night." SAHIH AL_BUKHARI [Volume 2, Book 16, Number 112]

So from the above guidance of our beloved prophet Mohammad (pbuh), the 'witr' should always be the last salah of the night. It is mustahib (highly recommended) for a Muslim to make 'witr' as his/her last prayer at night, so all other prayers including 'tahjud' should precede 'witr' .And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
