Sunnah after Witr

It is from the Sunnah that after completing your Witr prayer, i.e after saying your final salam in prayer, to say afterward:‎

في رواية ابي بن كعب عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم انه اذا سلم قال (سبحان الملك القدوس ثلاث مرات

رواه ابو داود والنسائي وصححه الالباني في صحيح النسائي

From the narration of Ubay bin Ka’ab that the Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) used to say after the final salam in prayer: Subhaana Al-Malik Al-Qudoos three times.

[Al-Nasaa’i (1699) and classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan al-Nasaa’i.]

** Al-Daaraqutni added the word: Rabb al-Malaa’ikah wa’l-Rooh’ (Lord of the angels and the Spirit), with a saheeh isnaad. See Zaad al-Ma’aad by Ibn al-Qayyim, 1/337.
