Book Sixteen –Witr Prayer


Hadith Number 105.

Narrated by Ibn Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Once a person asked Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) about the night prayer. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) 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 Rakah and this will be a Witr for all the Rakat which he has prayed before." Nafi' told that 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) used to say Taslim between (the first) two Rakat and (the third) odd one in the Witr prayer, when he wanted to attend to a certain matter (during that interval between the Rakat).


Hadith Number 106.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Once I passed the night in the house of Maimuna (Radhi Allahu Anha) (his aunt). I slept across the bed while Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and his wife slept length-wise. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) slept till midnight or nearly so and woke up rubbing his face and recited ten verses from Surat "Aal-Imran." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) 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 Rakat five times and then ended his prayer with Witr. He laid down till the Muadhdhin came then he stood up and offered two Rakat (Sunnah of Fajr prayer) and then went out and offered the Fajr prayer. (See Hadith No. 183, Book 4)


Hadith Number 107.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Night prayer is offered as two Rakat followed by two Rakat and so on, and if you want to finish it, pray only one Rak’ah which will be Witr for all the previous Rakat." Al-Qasim said, "Since we attained the age of puberty we have seen some people offering a three-Rakat prayer as Witr and all that is permissible. I hope there will be no harm in it."


Hadith Number 108.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to pray eleven Rakat 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 Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) raised his head. He also used to pray two Rakat (Sunnah before the (compulsory) Fajr prayer and then lie down on his right side till the Muadhdhin came to him for the prayer.


Hadith Number 109.

Narrated by Anas bin Sirin: I asked Ibn 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma), "What is your opinion about the two Rakat before the Fajr (compulsory) prayer, as to prolonging the recitation in them?" He said, "The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to pray at night two Rakat followed by two and so on, and end the prayer by one Rakah Witr. He used to offer two Rakat before the Fajr prayer immediately after the Adhan." (Hammad, the sub-narrator said, "That meant (that he prayed) quickly.)"


Hadith Number 110.

Narrated by 'Aisha : Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) offered Witr prayer at different nights at various hours extending (from the 'Isha' prayer) up to the last hour of the night.


Hadith Number 111.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to offer his night prayer while I was sleeping across in his bed. Whenever he intended to offer the Witr prayer, he used to wake me up and I would offer the Witr prayer too.


Hadith Number 112.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Make s your last prayer at night."

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 113.

Narrated by Said 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 Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)?" I replied, "Yes, by Allah." He said, "Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to pray Witr on the back of the camel (while on a journey)."


Hadith Number 114.

Narrated by Ibn 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to offer (Nawafil) prayers on his Rahila (mount) facing its direction by signals, but not the compulsory prayer. He also used to pray Witr on his (mount) Rahila.


Hadith Number 115.

Narrated by Muhammad bin Sirin: Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was asked, "Did the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) recite Qunut in the Fajr prayer?" Anas replied in the affirmative. He was further asked, "Did he recite Qunut before bowing?" Anas replied, "He recited Qunut after bowing for some time (for one month)."


Hadith Number 116.

Narrated by 'Asim: I asked Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu) about the Qunut. Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) replied, "Definitely it was (recited)". I asked, "Before bowing or after it?" Anas replied, "Before bowing." I added, "So and so has told me that you had informed him that it had been after bowing." Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "He told an untruth (i.e. "was mistaken," according to the Hijazi dialect). Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) recited Qunut after bowing for a period of one month." Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) added, "The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sent about seventy men (who knew the Qur’an by heart) towards the pagans (of Najd) who were less than they in number and there was a peace treaty between them and Allah's Messenger’s (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) but the Pagans broke the treaty and killed the seventy men. So Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) recited Qunut for a period of one month asking Allah to punish them."


Hadith Number 117.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) recited Qunut for one month (in the Fajr prayer) asking Allah to punish the tribes of Ral and Dhakwan.


Hadith Number 118.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Qunut used to be recited in the Maghrib and the Fajr prayers.
