عَنْ جَابِرٍ رضي الله عنه: قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم
مَنْ خَافَ أَنْ لاَ يَقُومَ مِنْ آخِرِ اللَّيْلِ فَلْيُوتِرْ أَوَّلَهُ وَمَنْ طَمِعَ أَنْ يَقُومَ آخِرَهُ فَلْيُوتِرْ آخِرَ اللَّيْلِ فَإِنَّ صَلاَةَ آخِرِ اللَّيْلِ مَشْهُودَةٌ وَذَلِكَ أَفْضَلُرواه مسلم( ٧٥٥ )
‘Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
If anyone is afraid that he may not get up in the latter part of the night, he should observe Witr in the first part of it; and if anyone is eager to get up in the last part of it, he should observe Witr at the end of the night, for prayer at the end of the night is witnessed (by the angels) and that is preferable.Narrated by Muslim, 755
