Itikalf — May Allah (swt) bless you for thinking ahead

Q: Imaam I intend doing itkikalf this year in my musjid because college would be closed and want clarification. Is the whuzu area in the musjid part of the musjid? Would the same rules of musjid apply in the whuzu area? Can a person in itikalf the type of ittikalf one does in the last 10 days of ramadhan talk in the whuzu area like nonemergency talk?

witr salah, do i just stand or do i read something?

Q: Assalamu alaikum,

Here in our Masjid we do not make Dua Qunoot out loud in witr prayer after taraweeh. What are you required to do or say after the Imaam says Allahu Akbar and everyone folds their hands and stands silently. Do you simply make your own dua in any language? Why is that time period so short? In Haram people raise their hands for dua, here it is folded, why? Jazakallahu khair!

Q: Do I say amen loud in dua e qunoot? (text)

Q: Imaam I always read witr salah two rakats and one rakat. I have researched the matter and sense without prejudice shows me that both ways are correct. Also our Imam who is arab acknowledges that both methods are correct. I am still confused because he says both ways are correct but never fixers a dua when I know that the three rakat str8 method has a fixing of a dua. Do I just still  pray my own dua? What do I do? Also what is your opinion  as to the both ways. Any you give preference to? (email)
