Pray remaining Taraaweeh after Witr

Fatwaa ID: 1019

Assalamualaikum Mufti sahab,
Can we pray remaining 12 rakaats of taraveeh after praying witr as per shafaee,
Since they pray only 8 rakaats with jamaat in most of the places.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is not clear what you mean by “as per shafaee”. Nevertheless, in the unfortunate situation where a masjid performs 8 rak’ahs only for Taraaweeh, the followers should complete the remaining 12 rak’ahs afterwards. They may perform this after the Witr Salaah. That is permissible.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
