Question: Is better to to sit and make the two Rakaats Nafl after Witr?

Answer: There are two opinions in this matter: The first options is that it is better to sit and perform these two Rakaats and the second opinion is that it is better to stand and perform these two Rakaats.

Both opinions are correct. However, it is preferred that a person stands and observes this Salaah as the reward for Salaah while sitting will be half the reward of Salaah that is observed while standing. [Fatawaa Mahmoodiya V 7 P 225]

انه صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يصلي بعد الوتر قاعدً ... ولكن له : اَي للمتنفل نصف اجر القاءم ( مراقى الفلاح ص ٤٠٣)

And Allah Knows Best
