10 Nov The Witr Prayer
554. Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, said,
“The Witr is not an obligation like the Prescribed Prayer, but it is the tradition of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him. He said, ‘Allah is single (witr) and loves odd numbers, so do the witr, people of the Qur’an.’” (Sunan Abu Dawud, Witr, 1; Sunan at-Tirmidhi, Witr, 2).
555. Ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said,
“Make the Witr the last of your Prayers at night.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Witr, 4; Sahih Muslim, Salatu’l-Musafirin, 151).
