Witr Salaah

Q: Are there two Witr namaaz’s per day? ie. 1. Esha – 3 rakaats Witr Wajib 2. Tahajjud – 2 rakaat followed by 1 rakaat Witr? Should both be read every night or are they the same and only one should be read?


A: There is only one Salaatul Witr (three rakaats) which has to be performed after the Esha Salaah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
