    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Witr is an emphasized prayer that is attached with the ‘Esha prayer. Technically, the ‘Esha prayer is valid even though one has left out the witr prayer.

    Abu Sa’id (may Allah be pleased with him) reports from the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him), “The one who sleeps from (the obligation of) witr or forgets it, he must perform it when he wakes up or remembers it” (Hakim, Dar Qutni)


    And Allah knows best.
