Q: Qiyaam-ul-layl: I am a Hanafi living in an area where, unfortunately, many do not follow a set mazhab. One of the brothers requested that ‘Qiyaam-ul-layl’ be performed in jamaat during Ramadaan. From his description, I understand this to be tahajjud salaah (as we have already
arranged for Taraweeh salaah). Is it permissible to perform any nafl salaah in jamaat?
A: According to the Hanfi mazhab, it is impermissible to perform nafil Salaah in jamaat with more than four people (including the Imaam).
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
