Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
I am Hanafi and I have about 3 years of qadha salaah to make up. That includes perhaps 3 1/2 years of witr qadha. Can I reduce my qadha witr to one rakah?
Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.
In the Hanafi school, witr prayer is only three rakats (and not less). Make up missed witr prayers at a manageable pace, but in a sound and proper manner.
And Allah alone gives success.
