Firstly: The Wetr (single) prayer

 Performing Wetr is a must.

The noble prophet (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said about it as it was narrated by Abdullah Ibn-Omar in Mosnad Al-Imam Ahmed Ibn-Hambal:

"Perform a single prostration." In the other narration, he said: "Perform at least one prostration."

If you are busy, perform only one prostration, anyway don’t leave Wetr, I can perform it before I go to bed or if I am sure that I will wake up at night I can delay it after my pray at night.

If I performed it before I go to bed and Allah grants me and I woke up at night, I can start my pray then by one prostration and this one with the other one are two so they are not Wetr. Then I pray what I can and perform Wetr at the end so that there are not opposition between Ahadeeth.

The prophet (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said in another Hadeeth narrated by Ibn-Omar said:

"Whoever prays at night, he should make Wetr at the end of his prayer because the messenger of Allah (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) ordered that, if dawn comes, then there is no night prayer or Wetr, the messenger of Allah (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: Perform Wetr before dawn."[1]

This means that the last prayer before dawn is Wetr, the prophet (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said in another Hadeeth:

"There are no two Wetr in one night."[2]

I shouldn’t perform Wetr two times, I will explain it again, righteous people made agreement between all these Ahadeeth:

If I know I don’t wake up to pray at night, then I should perform Wetr before I go to bed. If Allah helped me and I wake up, I should start with one prostration, then perform what I can of prayer, then perform Wetr at the end. The Wetr should be only once and it is a must.

So I wonder how some of our lovers neglect Wetr and not perform it.

Performing Wetr is among the assured Sunan.

Our master the messenger of Allah sometimes performed one prostration as Wetr and mostly thirteen prostrations, he sometimes performed three prostrations, sometimes five, sometimes seven and the most thing narrated after him was thirteen prostrations.

[1] It was narrated after Ibn-Omar in Mosnad Al-Imam Ahmed Ibn-Hambal.
[2] It was narrated after Talq Ibn-Ali in Jame'a Al-Ahadeeth Wal-Maraseel.
