Brother Abdullah from Nigeria was asking about the usual question and that is, people pray with the Imam and Imam offer Witter in the tearaway but they would like to go back to their homes and offer more night prayer on their own. So what to do because they have conflicting ahaadeeth. So they think what Hadith says that there are no two witches in the same night. And this is authentic. And another Hadith says that make the last of your night prayer Witcher which means that if I'm going to pray in the beginning, and then I'm going to pray at the end of the night, I should only pray one Witter. Well, the answer is very easy. The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam told us in an authentic hadith

00:00:49--> 00:01:40

that he who prays Tara Lee with his Imam, until the prayer is over, Allah would record for him Allah would reward him as if he prayed the whole night from sunset until the break of dawn. So usually your Eman prays for an hour, an hour and a half maximum. If you pray with him and offer Witcher then you have been rewarded as if you prayed the whole night. But what about if I would like to go and pray more in my home, you have two options. The first option is if the Imam is praying to Raka plus one, you pray with him and when he prays the last Raka which is an individual which are Raka when he offers salon, you stand up and pray a second Raka and by this you have prayed even numbers. So when

00:01:40--> 00:02:25

you go home, you pray as many as you wish and then conclude that with one Raka as indicated by the prophet alayhi salatu salam. But if you're not sure that you're going to pray night prayer, you might as well pray with the Imam until he is over from his telawi and you pray with him as well. And if you go home, you may pray as many times as you wish, but do not repeat the Wizard of Oz is done. So what to do with the Hadith where the Prophet instructed us to make the last prayer of the night prayer as Witcher well this is the scholars say this is not mandatory, this is not obligatory, this is highly, highly recommended. Well, how do you say this? We know from the shoulder from

00:02:25--> 00:03:14

fundamentals of that whenever an instruction comes from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, whether it comes from Allah, Allah Almighty in the Quran, or in the sooner from the Prophet alayhi wa sallam an order means it's an obligation unless another evidence comes to reduce this obligation into recommendation. Likewise, when the Prophet when Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, or the prophet SAW, Selim says in his Hadith, that you should not do something. This is a negation. So in a sort of joke when Allah or the prophet SAW Selim, say that you shouldn't do this, don't do this. This means that it is forbidden. Unless there is another evidence that reduces it to not recommended so the

00:03:14--> 00:03:44

Prophet says I can make the last prayer of the night prayer as witches what to do about this. Well, it's very easy in the authentic Shanna the Prophet alysus. I'm used to pray to rock as after the Witcher, and he is sometimes used to pray them sitting down so the scholars say from this hadith we know and learn that the instruction of having the Witcher The last thing to be prayed at night is a recommended thing, but it is not mandatory because the Prophet himself la salatu salam prayed

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

to rock as after Witcher
