Praying the Witr Prayer in Congregation
Question:

Is it permissible to pray the Witr in congregation in other than the month of Ramadan, like, if some people were upon a journey, and the time for the Witr prayer arrived, should they pray in congregation even if it is once?
Answer:

There is no problem if a person prays the supererogatory prayers in congregation some of the time, because this is established from the Prophet sallAllaahu Ďalayhi wa sallam in the night prayer, that he prayed with Ibn Abbaas may Allaah be pleased with them, and he prayed with Abdullaah bin Masood, and he prayed with Hudhayfah ibn al-Yamaan; all of this is mentioned in the Sunnah so if they were to do this, and not take it as a established Sunnah then there is no objection to it.
