Taraaweeh in congregation for Witr in congregation

Fatwaa ID: 999

Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

If someone missed taraweeh due to work etc
Then can he pray isha jamat with his little brother and do taraweeh on his own and then witr with jamat once he’s completed the rest

Or must he atleast pray some taraweeh in jamat then on his own if he wants to do witr with jamat

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

For the validity of Witr Salaah in congregation, it is not necessary to perform Taraaweeh Salaah in congregation. One may perform all his Taraaweeh prayers individually, where applicable, and then the Witr in congregation. In the enquired situation, we advise you to perform the Taraaweeh Salaah with your brother. Salaah in congregation is more rewarding than that performed individually. We wish to emphasize that work is not a valid excuse to miss the congregation. You should perform your ‘Ishaa Salaah in the masjid with the congregation. The house is for the women folk, not for you.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
