Pearl of Wisdom

'Take of knowledge whatever seems good to you, but beware of seeking knowledge for four reasons: in order that you may contend with the scholars, or in order to wrangle with foolish people, or that you may show off with it in gatherings, or in order that people may look up to you to lead them.?

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
al-Irshad, v. 1, p. 230

Question : #559 Category: Salaat / Prayers
Subject: Salaat Tahajjud
Question: Salaam
If I read Salaat Tahajjud, should i not read witr with Isha' prayer, and read the witr instead after Salaat Tahajjud? Does Salaat Tahajjud still count if you pray it 3 hours before Fajr, then go to sleep after praying it, and then wake up at Fajr time? Or does Tahajjud have to be just before Fajr?
jazakallah
Answer: Alaykum Salaam,

I apologies if I haven't understood your question properly.

Q - If I read Salaat Tahajjud, should i not read witr with Isha' prayer, and read the witr instead after Salaat Tahajjud?
A - Salah Witr is part of Salatul Tahajjud / Salat ul Layl. As the prayer consists of 3 parts and a total of 11 Rakats.
Namaz-e-Shab (2 rakats) x 4
Namaz-e-Shafa (2 rakats) x 1
Namaz-e-Witr (1 rakat) x 1.
Hence it has no impact on Salat ul Isha.

Q - Does Salaat Tahajjud still count if you pray it 3 hours before Fajr, then go to sleep after praying it, and then wake up at Fajr time?
A - Yes it does.

Q - Or does Tahajjud have to be just before Fajr?
A - Time for Salatul Tahajjud ends at True Dawn (Fajr)
