Witr with jamaat in the month of Ramadaan

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it mustahab to pray witr in congregation in Ramadan if you are just 2 people praying in an apartment, or is it better to pray individually in this case? (i.e. does the mustahabb refer only to witr-prayer in a larger congregation in a mosque)?

A: It is Sunnah to perform witr with jamaat in the month of Ramadaan, whether in the Musjid or out of the Musjid.

( وصلاته ) أي الوتر ( مع الجماعة في رمضان أفضل من أدائه منفردا آخر الليل في اختيار قاضيخان قال ) قاضيخان رحمه الله ( هو الصحيح ) لأنه لما جازت الجماعة كان أفضل ولأن عمر رضي الله عنه كان يؤمهم في الوتر (مراقي الفلاح 386)
