Can Someone Pray Witr Then Pray Taraweeh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Irfan Ali


Can someone pray witr then pray Taraweeh? It would be done, with karahiya (disliked) but against tarteeb (sequence)? Or there is karahiya in it but against tarteeb?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


It is permissible for one to pray the witr prayer before Taraweeh if one is fearful of missing it in the end. The general practice is of praying at the end of Taraweeh. There will be no detestability as well.
