Obligations in the Witr Prayer

The first important thing about “how do you pray Witr prayer?” what I will explain now is the obligations in the Witr prayer. I want you to understand all of that because these are some of the important things about Witr prayer that must be understood properly.

One important thing that you must understand is that the discussion of obligations in the Witr prayer is a discussion of obligations in prayer. So, we have to understand the obligations in prayer if we want to understand the obligations in the Witr prayer.

In general, if we read some Islamic legal literature on obligations in prayer or obligations in the Witr prayer, we will find fourteen obligations in prayer or obligations in Witr prayer.

The fourteen obligations in the prayer or in the Witr prayer that I mean are as follows:

One: niyyah for prayer.

Two: Stand up for those who can do it.

Three: Takbir Ihram.

Four: read surah al-Fatihah.

Five: Bowing (Rukuk).

Six: I’tidal.

Seven: prostrate twice (sujud twice).

Eight: sit between the two prostrations.

Nine: final tashahhud.

Ten: read the final tashahhud prayer.

Eleven: reading salawat when doing the final tashahhud.

Twelve: Salaam.

Thirteen: perform all obligations in prayer with Thuma’ninah (calmly).

Fourteen: perform all obligations in prayer regularly.

Those are the fourteen obligations in prayer. We have to do it all in the Witr prayer. If we do not perform one of the obligations in the Witr prayer for some reason, such as because we forgot, we must perform Sujud Sahwi. Sujud Sahwi is a prostration that is done because of forgetfulness in prayer. In several previous articles, I have explained a few things about it. So, I will not explain that again in this article

That is a brief explanation of the obligations in the Witr prayer. As Muslims, we must understand all of this.
