Assalamu 'Alaykum
The following question was answered by Dr. Liyakat Takim.

Salaams & Duas
Ummulbanin - Moderator - 'Aalim Network

****************************************************************************

QUESTION:

I know that we are not supposed to offer sunnat prayers in congregation at
the mosque, but what about a husband and wife or family offering it together
behind the husband/father at home?  For example, is that okay for namaze
shab or must each pray separately?


ANSWER:

salaamun 'alaykum,

Mustahab prayers are not to be offered in congregation whether at home or
in the mosque. For namaze shab (salat al-layl), the first 10 rak'as are
straight forward like subh prayers (with a different niyya for salat
al-shaf'). If the rest of the family members do not know how to recite salat
al-witr, then the father can offer it loudly whilst the family members
recite all the suras and du'as, istighfar etc. with him. However, it is to
be remembered that this prayer is not offered as jam'a, the method I have
suggested is merely to facilitate the offerings of prayers for those not
able to do so alone.


Wasalaam
