Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Is it permissible to perform two rakah of salat-e-istikhara after the witr and before sleeping or we have to finish this before witr.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

It is permitted to pray after witr, though it is optimal when possible to pray witr last. (For details: see answer below).

As such, it is permitted to pray istikhara after witr.
