In Deoband the Ulama say witr prayer in Kaaba is not valid and we need to repeat it as it remains due. Is this correct? Also, can one pray 1 or 3 or 5 rakats in witr?

A: We have not heard this from the ulama of Deoband.

Witr namaaz according to us is three rakaats.

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