If one misses Asr, but performs Isha and Taraweh with Jamat, should he also perform witr with Jamat?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

if someone has asr to perform and without praying asr qaza he has performed isha(night prayer) and tarawih with jamat,should he perform witir with jamat or individually???if he is performing witir without jamat in this case then what is the ruling of shariat on him????



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

One who missed a maximum of six or less than six salat is termed as a sahib-ut-tartib.

It is necessary for a sahib-ut-tartib to perform the salat in sequence.

If one misses the Asr Salat and subsequently performed the Isha and Taraweh Salat with Jamat. 

He should delay the Witr Salat.

He should first perform the Asr Salat, then repeat the Maghrib Salat and the Esha Salat in that sequence.

Afterwards he should perform the Witr Salat. (Contemporary Fatawaa – Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani; pg. 73)

If one is not a sahib-ut-tartib, he may perform Witr Salat with Jamat and thereafter make qadah of the missed Fard Salat.

One should make sure that he performs all of his Salat in their correct times in the future. To delay any Salat out of its correct time unduly is a major sin.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,



We make Du’aa you are well. The Darul Iftaa was established in the year 2011. The fundamental objective of the Darul Iftaa is to train Ulama from various parts of the world to become Muftis. In this world of scientific calculations and technological advancements, economic confusion and political disarray, a Mufti is trained to understand and analyze current situations and provide leadership for the Ummah. There is a vacuum  of competent Muftis in various parts of the world. The Ummah lacks leadership. There are currently twelve students who are studying at the Darul Iftaa. They are from United States of America, United Kingdom, Mozambique, Jamaica, Zambia, Canada and South Africa. There are many Ulama from many parts of the world who have applied to study the Iftaa course. They could not be accommodated due to lack of adequate facilities. The Darul Iftaa has therefore embarked on an expansion project.

The Darul Iftaa requests your generous contributions for the expansion project. The building project has already begun and is expected to be completed within the next three months. This is indeed a great opportunity for you to earn Sawab e Jariyah in the Aakhirah. This is a tree with many branches bearing sweet fruits for your Aakhirah. Insha’Allah. The Darul Iftaa banking details are as follows:

Bank:              FNB Bank
Account#:     62347912778
Branch:           221126

(The Darul Iftaa is registered and has the following PBO exemption number: 930039227 – 3 May 2012)
