Answered by Shaykh Abdurrahman ibn Yusuf Mangera
I read in Talim ul Haq that one can pray 2 rakat nafl after the witr prayer. I always thought that no salat can be given after witr. Could you please shed some light on this?
There was a difference of opinion about this issue in the earlier days, however, the superior and settled opinion is that it is preferable to perform two rak’ats after the witr. It is related in a hadith of Sahih Muslim, that the Messenger (upon him be peace) used to perform to light rak’ats sitting after the witr prayer.
And Allah knows best.
