[Regarding] the Witr [prayer, then] its time begins from the moment [you] finish the ‘Ishaa prayer…
«Whoever prays ‘Ishaa in congregation, it is as if he spent half the night in prayer, and whoever prays Fajr in congregation, it is as if he spent the whole night in prayer»
For fourteen years, ‘Abdoos prayed the morning (Fajr) prayer with the [same] wudhoo [as he had prayed] the ‘Ishaa [prayer]. And he was the epitome of humility.
Asad ibn ‘Amr said that for forty years, Abu Haneefah prayed the ‘Ishaa [prayer] and the morning (Fajr) prayer with [the same] wudhoo.
al-Aswad ibn Yazeed would complete [reading] the Qur.aan every two days during Ramadhaan, and he would sleep between maghrib and ‘ishaa. And in other than Ramadhaan, he would complete [reading] the Qur.aan every six days.
In some of the masaajid, every day – particularly after the ‘Asr prayer, one of the brothers reads a number of ahaadeeth from the book “Riyaadh as-Saaliheen”; so is this practice [considered to be] an innovation?
