Can you please inform me whether one is
permitted to perform Tahajjud prayer in
congregation (Jamaat) according to Hanafi

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.

First of all, it should be mentioned that there
is evidence in the Sunnah that it is
permissible to perform congregational
prayers other than obligatory prayers, like
the optional night prayers and the like.
As regards the Hanafi School, it appears that
they dislike congregational prayers when
performing the Tahajjud prayer [the
optional night prayer] for a person who has
already performed the Taraweeh prayer.

Al-Kasaani from the Hanafi School of
jurisprudence, said: "If the congregation had
performed the Taraweeh prayer and then
they wanted to perform another prayer, they
should perform it individually and not in
congregation because this last one is an
unrestricted voluntary prayer, and
performing unrestricted voluntary prayers in
congregation is disliked."
Allah Knows best.
