Time due for the performance of Witr

A: Time for Witr Prayer starts after the performance of `Isha' Prayer and continues until the break of Dawn. Proof for the foregoing is a Hadith which is narrated by Imam Ahmad on the authority of Abu Basrah that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Allah has given you an extra Salah (Prayer), so you should pray it. Its time is between 'Isha' Prayer and the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer; this is the Witr Salah. Moreover, it is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If you are afraid of Fajr Prayer (the approach of its time), pray one Rak‘ah (unit of Prayer). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
