(Salam) Dear Sunni brothers, if the holy prophet (pbuh) used to pray only one Rakaah of witr prayers, then why do you guys offer 3 Rakaah prayer of witr? Volume 2, Book 16, Number 107 : Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar The Prophet 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 RAKAAH 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." NOTE: The Prophet prayed only 1 rakaah! Volume 2, Book 16, Number 109 : Narrated by Anas bin Sirin I asked Ibn 'Umar, "What is your opinion about the two Rakat before the Fajr (compulsory) prayer, as to prolonging the recitation in them?" He said, "The Prophet (p.b.u.h) used to pray at night two Rakat followed by two and so on, and end the prayer by ONE RAKAAH 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.)" Volume 2, Book 16, Number 106 : Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas Once I passed the night in the house of Maimuna (his aunt). I slept across the bed while Allah's Apostle and his wife slept length-wise. The Prophet slept till midnight or nearly so and woke up rubbing his face and recited ten verses from Surat "Aal-Imran." Allah's Apostle 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 Muadh-dhin came then he stood up and offered two Rakat (Sunna of Fajr prayer) and then went out and offered the Fajr prayer. Volume 2, Book 16, Number 105 : Narrated by Ibn Umar Once a person asked Allah's Apostle about the night prayer. Allah's Apostle 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 RAKAAH and this will be a Witr for all the Rakat which he has prayed before." Nafi' told that 'Abdullah bin 'Umar 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). Alhamdulillah! I'm the followers of Mohammed (pbuh) But it seems Sunnis follow Abdullah bin Omar, as the 3 rakaahs were his invention, whereas the Prophet (pbuh) always prayed only one rakaah. Sunni prayers: Max 8 rakaah Tahajjud And they add the 3 witr rakaahs to complete 11 rakaahs. Also, as far as I could see, most Sunnis consider witr a part of Isha salaah.
