    Does one rak'ah of witr have to be preceded by two rak'ah formations?

    Report bad ads?

    I know that there are ahadeeth that state one rak'ah for witr is permissible, but…

    Are we allowed to pray one rak'ah of witr by ITSELF after Isha? Or do we have to pray one or more two rak'ah formations before the one rak'ah of witr?


    To make this question even more simpler, do we have to pray tahajjud or shaf‘ or nafl BEFORE one rak'ah of witr? Or is just a single rak'ah of witr after Isha permissible?

    Do we have to pray anything before one rak'ah of witr is what I'm asking.



    I know that it is more desirable and sufficient to pray three rak'ahs of witr, but I am researching one rak'ah for witr right now.


    Thank you for reading this and I hope you guys can help me out.

    Re: Does one rak'ah of witr have to be preceded by two rak'ah formations?

    According to-`Abd Allah ibn `Umar,-Muhammad-said, "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 raka'ah and this will be a witr for all the rakat which he has prayed before."[1]

    In a-hadith-transmitted by-Abu Darda, he states that Muhammad enjoined to him three things: to fast three days every month, to offer the Witr salat before sleep, and to offer two rakat sunnah of fajr.[2]

    Thank you, I have read it. So you must offer two rak'ahs before one rak'ah of witr? Reading just one rak'ah of witr by ITSELF is incorrect?
