Night Prayers During Ramadan. by Taamas111 (m): 4:02pm on January 11

I do pray Salat Qiyaam Al-layl at mosque for
eight Raka'h plus 3 Raka'h of Salat Al-Witr
every night. Now I want also to pray Salat al-
Tahajjud at mid night because of the last 10
days of Ramadan so can you tell me how
many Raka'h can I pray for these two

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

The number of night prayers is unlimited, so
a person can pray whatever Allah enables
him to pray. The Prophet said: "The
night prayer is in twos, and if anyone of you
fears the break of dawn, he has to pray one
Raka'h as Witr to end his night prayer. " [Al-
Bukhari and Muslim] Nonetheless, if a
person prays only 11 Raka's or 13 Raka's,
then some scholars stated that this is better
as the Prophet prayed both ways. These
are the legislated forms of night prayer and
we have clarified what is best. So if you pray
one way or another and wanted to do that at
the beginning of the night and at the last
part of it, then you have to divide the
number of Raka'h between these two times.
It is, however, desirable to pray Witr at the
last part of it as the Prophet said: "Your
last prayer of the night should be Witr. " [Al-
Bukhari and Muslim]
Allah Knows best.
