Salaam, do you have to pray witr in order to pray tahajjud? or can we skip it and just wake up for tahajjud
Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,
The witr prayer is meant to be the last prayer of the night before the fajr prayer. You do not have to pray witr in order to pray tahajjud, and ideally witr should be prayed after tahajjud. But it is permissible to pray witr, go to bed, then wake up for tahajjud as mentioned in this previous answer.
