00:00:00--> 00:00:01

Now brothers and sisters,

00:00:02--> 00:00:03

regarding Salat al Witter,

00:00:04--> 00:00:05

let us understand

00:00:05--> 00:00:06

that

00:00:06--> 00:00:09

the matter of Witter is very flexible.

00:00:10--> 00:00:11

Okay?

00:00:13--> 00:00:17

There are 3 main ways of praying withers.

00:00:17--> 00:00:20

There is the Hanafi way which is to

00:00:20--> 00:00:23

pray 3 with 1 taslim at the end.

00:00:23--> 00:00:24

You pray 2 rakah,

00:00:25--> 00:00:26

then you sit for

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

tashahood, you stand up, you read Surah Fatihah

00:00:31--> 00:00:31

loudly.

00:00:32--> 00:00:35

After Surah Fatihah, you read some Quran, maybe

00:00:35--> 00:00:39

Surat Qulhu Allahu Ahad, then you say Allahu

00:00:39--> 00:00:40

Akbar in a standing position

00:00:41--> 00:00:44

with raising your hands, and this is wajib

00:00:44--> 00:00:47

according to the Hanafi madam. And then after

00:00:47--> 00:00:48

that,

00:00:48--> 00:00:51

you do unut, short unut, quietly.

00:00:52--> 00:00:56

Some Hanafi scholars allowed also, loud

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

congregational

00:00:57--> 00:00:58

unu.

00:00:58--> 00:01:02

In a standing position, after you say Allahu

00:01:02--> 00:01:02

Akbar

00:01:03--> 00:01:04

with raising your hands

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

after,

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

which is in the 3rd raka. And this

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

is what? Before the Rokkur.

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

So this is the Hanafi way.

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

The Jumhur,

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

they pray witter,

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

in a different way. 2 rakah,

00:01:22--> 00:01:25

sit, make the sleep, stand up, and then

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

you do

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

one rakah alone.

00:01:29--> 00:01:32

The shafi' is so the Jomor, this is

00:01:32--> 00:01:36

the Malekis and the Hanabilah, Although Hanabilah have

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

different ways.

00:01:37--> 00:01:41

The Malekis, they prefer this, which is what?

00:01:42--> 00:01:42

2 raka,

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

do taslim,

00:01:45--> 00:01:45

stand up,

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

no unut,

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

and do 1 raka.

00:01:49--> 00:01:52

And they consider any way other than this

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

is macro as far as I,

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

understand or as I remember.

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

The shafi'i

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

is the opposite.

00:02:01--> 00:02:01

They they,

00:02:02--> 00:02:03

prefer

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

3 consecutive rakas

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

without sitting in between. So first raka, second

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

raka, you don't sit for tashahhut at all,

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

continue for the 3rd raka,

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

and then you do the qunut

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

after

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

the,

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

after the,

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

3rd raka, after ruku of the 3rd raka.

00:02:25--> 00:02:27

So now as you can see that there

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

are 3 main ways.

00:02:31--> 00:02:32

All of them are valid,

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

every single madhab has its own daleel for

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

that.

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

The agenda support all of them.

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

To say brothers and sisters, I know that

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

unfortunately

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

prominent

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

du'aat and prominent, you know, you may call

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

them scholars,

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

they say that the Hanafi

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

madhab is against Sunnah. You cannot say this

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

because it is impossible

00:02:58--> 00:02:58

to have

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

a school of thought that is followed by

00:03:02--> 00:03:02

thousands

00:03:02--> 00:03:05

of scholars, and they are doing something that

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

is against sunnah. I don't want to go

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

now into the discussion regarding their daleel for

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

that. Every single madhab, my dear brothers

00:03:14--> 00:03:17

and sisters whenever it is adopted by the

00:03:17--> 00:03:20

madhab and the scholars in that madhab, they

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

don't deny it,

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

then you cannot say that it against sunnah

00:03:25--> 00:03:25

brothers.

00:03:26--> 00:03:28

Be careful, please. So don't say that

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

the Hanafi witter is against

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

sunnah. This is maybe in of itself is

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

a problematic statement.

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

Okay? So these are the 3 main ways

00:03:39--> 00:03:41

of doing witter.

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

I strongly recommend

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

that in a multicultural,

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

in a multicultural

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

society,

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

in a multi,

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

a multi madhub society,

00:04:00--> 00:04:01

salafis, you have Hanafis, you have Hanafis, you

00:04:01--> 00:04:04

you have shafis. Of course, that doesn't mean

00:04:04--> 00:04:07

that the salafis are against the hanafis or

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

they are different. I have my own view

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

about it that Hanafis and Shafis and,

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

Malikis are all Salafis. Okay?

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

To distinguish them from Salafis, this is another

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

story, but anyway.

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

You have in each masjid all.

00:04:24--> 00:04:24

So

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

what to do?

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

I strongly prefer

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

that we as imams

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

need to teach

00:04:32--> 00:04:32

all

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

the congregation

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

that there are different ways of praying wither

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

and that

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

and that the imam is accommodating

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

always and is

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

accommodating

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

the whole congregation.

00:04:47--> 00:04:49

So one time pray as Hanafi, and this

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

is what we do in our Masjid in

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

Darul Hasan. One way pray Shafi'i,

00:04:54--> 00:04:54

one way

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

pray Maliki. In Dar al Hassan we have

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

not yet prayed Shafi'i way, but we've been

00:05:00--> 00:05:00

praying,

00:05:01--> 00:05:01

Maliki,

00:05:02--> 00:05:05

because one of our imams, Jazalullah khairam, is

00:05:05--> 00:05:08

Maliki. We want to cater for him as

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

well. And for them it is Magrukh to

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

pray the 3 raka'ah,

00:05:13--> 00:05:16

which is the shafi'i way. Yeah? So anyway,

00:05:17--> 00:05:21

the the the I strongly prefer that, especially

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

our main masajid,

00:05:23--> 00:05:27

the big masajid. They should pray wither in

00:05:27--> 00:05:27

different

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

ways. One time Hanafi, one time Shafei, one

00:05:31--> 00:05:31

time,

00:05:32--> 00:05:32

Maliki,

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

and they can alternate

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

between that, my dear brothers,

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

and sisters. The I I think this will

00:05:40--> 00:05:43

help us to be united, will help us

00:05:43--> 00:05:43

to,

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

be tolerant to each other. And as we

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

said, that the matter is very flexible. The

00:05:49--> 00:05:49

prophet

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

gave us,

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

he

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

said

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

and the prophet

00:06:03--> 00:06:06

also prayed the 3 together. There is 1

00:06:06--> 00:06:09

narration and 5 together, and that gave the

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

flexibility

00:06:10--> 00:06:11

how to pray Salatul Uyghur.

00:06:10--> 00:06:11

how to pray Salatul Uyghur.
