Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu the sub denature Jenga from Columbia Institute coming to you once again with a special session of the alum hangout 30 days 30 question for we're trying to answer your questions about the month of Ramadan. The question that we have today is can I pray the young after praying the winter? So let me go ahead and qualify in lay the foundation for this question. So the month of Ramadan is a very unique time with certain unique aspects of worship. One of them being the taraweeh prayer that is offered every night in massage in in communities across the world. Well, another aspect of that is that Ramadan is a very unique opportunity where we offer
the winter prayer together in congregation in JAMA as a group the Mona Lisa with their prayer you know many places makes it very beautiful. So a lot of times folks are motivated to pray the winter prayer with the Imam in the masjid as a part of the group. Well what happens if you do come back home and you find the opportunity you you you you're able to you know, have the motivation the inclination towards offering extra am prayers, then can you still offer them once you've already offered you're with them? So this question arises from a Hadith of the prophets a lovely sentiment authentic narration in which the prophets a lot he said them says he jadu Aquila salata, combi lady
withdrawn, that make the last prayer of your night, the winter, to make the last prayer of your night, at the nighttime, make it the winter prayer. So now because of that, the prophets a lot of them is but so the first thing I should explain is here is that the prophets a lot of these images using the command form, but this command form is not to obligate, but rather to emphasize and to give a recommendation. Nevertheless, the profits allottee some is so recommending that we offer the witr prayer as a last prayer tonight. So if I already offered my winter prayer, then can I pray more or not? That is a question. So when we look at the life of the prophets, a lot of them we find even
eration in Sahih Muslim tells us that it is established and it is proven that the prophets a lot of them did offer extra knuffel voluntary prayers after having already prayed his width or on occasion. Along with that we have the very famous statement of Abubakar Siddique karate Allahu Allahu may Allah be pleased with him, where Abu Bakar says that he's to himself prefer to offer the witr prayer, you know, even individually by himself throughout the rest of the year, he preferred to offer the winter prayer
immediately after following darish our prayer, and then he said that I would still look forward to I would make my best effort to wake up later on in the night and then offer the Dodger Ducky and prayers. And so when you put all of these different pieces of the puzzle together, what we find is that not only is it okay to offer extra yam after having prayed your with your prayer, but in fact, you it is recommended. It is something that is commendable. Something that is admirable, it is something that is recommended, and a source of great reward. So what it basically boils down to is that the prophets a lot of the time is giving a recommendation. If somebody has to wear with all the
ability to implement that recommendation, most definitely go for it, hold off, you're with her till the end of the night once you're done with your prayers. However, if it's a situation where you're not really sure how the night's gonna play out, then go ahead and it is completely valid and acceptable for you to offer your wits or prayer after the Isha prayer after your prayer. And then again, if you get the opportunity to do more theater during the night, go for it. It's all good. Now there's one possible idea that somebody might have that, that how we can solve this problem. Somebody prayed there with the mom after that their only prayer, they woke up later in the night
decided to offer morphia now what they're going to do is they're going to offer a second with their prayer to replace their previous with their prayer. And now they did make the with a prayer, the last prayer of their night after having already offered it earlier. They just replaced it and substituted it. And that's maybe an idea somebody might have. The problem with that idea is that the prophets a lot he says very clearly forbidding this practice where he said law with on the field a lot in there cannot be two winter prayers within one night. But the winter is offered at one time it's very unique and since there cannot be multiple with their prayers offered within one night,
Again, you put all the pieces of the puzzle together, offer your with your prayer, whenever it suits you best. If you'd offered earlier in the night, it's all good if you're able to hold it off even better, but if you offered it earlier, and you find yourself with the opportunity to pray more extra fiamme prayers, then go ahead and go for it. There's nothing wrong with it at all whatsoever in any way shape or form. So this when the column Hangout, I hope and pray everyone benefits and everyone's able to offer as much extra damn prayers and knuffle prayers throughout the month of Ramadan.
