Should I Pray 20 Rak'ahs With The Imaam Or 8?
Question:

If I pray in the masjid and the Imaam prays twenty rak'ahs, should I complete twenty along with him or should I pray eight rak'ahs along with him and then pray witr alone and leave?
Answer:

I advise that you pray eight rak'ahs and you pray the witr alone. Following the Sunnah is more deserving, for indeed the Prophet, salallaahu 'alaihi wasallam, said: Pray like you have seen me pray.
