Should I perform Witr in congregation if I haven’t completed all 20 rakats of Tarawih prayers? Can Tarawih be completed after Witr has been prayed? 

Answered by Sidi Hamza Karamali

wa `alaykum as salam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh Sidi

I pray all is well with you. Here are the answers to your questions:

(1) It is sunna to pray witr is congregation (during Ramadan) even if

one hasn’t prayed tarawih yet (although best, if possible to pray

witr in congregation after having prayed tarawih).

(2) It is valid to complete one’s tarawih after praying witr. The

time for tarawih is the same as the time for the witr prayer, meaning

that it enters after praying isha and exits at dawn.
