Missed witr prayer

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Can I pray my missed witr prayer in the morning?


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Witr is compulsory (Wajib). Hence, you should endevour to pray it before dawn. It is a sin to delay it until after its prescribed time.

However, if you missed it, together with repenting, you my pray it in the morning, before or after sunrise.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
