Following a Shaafi’ee or Hambali Imaam in witr Salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: How will a Hanafi muqtadi follow a shaafi or hambali etc in their witr salaah?


A: If the Shafi’ee or Hambali Imaam performs the witr Salaah with making salaam after two rakaats and reading one rakaat separately, then you should perform your witr Salaah individually. According to the Hanafi Mazhab witr Salaah should be performed with making salaam at the end after the completion of three rakaats.

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