    salaam

    I think your incorrect about what all prays are for - they are for Allah swt - the Farz, sunnat and nafl including witr - they are all ways in which the prophet pbuh told us to pray to Allah swt.

    peace

    Do you think the pious don't sin?

    They merely:
    Veiled themselves and didn't flaunt it
    Sought forgiveness and didn't persist
    Took ownership of it and don't justify it
    And acted with excellence after they had erred - Ibn al-Qayyim

    ^ no brother Zafran, I think that what amberah meant was that "witr" is classified as which type of prayer, like sunnat prayer or farz prayer!

    according to the hanifa madhab its wajib. I'm not sure about the others

    so you have
    Farz - you have to do
    Wajib - you have to do
    sunnat - recommanded depedning if its Makouda which are heavily reccomanded and Ghair Makouda which are less
    nafl - voluntery

    peace
