Ibn 'Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:

The Prophet (ﷺ) performed the night prayer in pairs (i.e., Rak'ah) and made it odd number by observing one Rak'ah (as Witr).[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعنه قال‏:‏ كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ، يصلي من الليل مثنى مثنى، ويوتر بركعة‏.‏ ‏(‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏)‏ ‏.‏
