Dua E Qunoot (Recited In Witr Prayer) in English

O Allah! We implore You for help and beg forgiveness of You and believe in You and rely on You and extol You and we are thankful to You and are not ungrateful to You and we alienate and forsake those who disobey You. O Allah! You alone do we worship and for You do we pray and prostrate and we betake to please You and present ourselves for the service in Your cause and we hope for Your mercy and fear Your chastisement. Undoubtedly, Your torment is going to overtake infidels O Allah!

At-Tirmidhi: 464, Abu Dawud: 1425

Explain the supplication :

What is du’aa ‘al-Qunoot ?

Praise be to Allah.


Du’a ‘al-Qunoot is recited in the last prayer of Witr’s rak’ah after bowing, but if it is recited before, it is irrelevant. But it is better to recite it after bowing.

Shaykh al-Islam [Ibn Taymiyah] said in Majmoo ‘al-Fataawa (23/100):

Regarding qunoot: There are two extreme views and one medium (or moderate) view. Some say that qunoot should only be recited before bowing and others should only be recited after recurrence. The fuqaha ‘among the Hadith scholars, such as Ahmad and others, say that both are allowed, as they are both mentioned in the saheeh Sunnah, but they preferred to recite the expectation after bowing because this is mentioned more often.

The lifting of the hands is mentioned in a Umar report (may Allah be pleased with him), as reported by al-Bayhaqi in a report he classified as Sahraw (2/210).


The believer should raise his hands to chest height and no more, as this du’aa ‘is not a supplication du’aa’ in which a person needs to lift their hands up. It is rather a du’aa ‘of hope in which a person holds his palms to the sky … The apparent meaning of the words of the scholar is that the faithful must hold his hands close together like a beggar who asks someone one to give him something.

It is best not to recite constantly all the time, but it must be done sometimes, because nothing proves that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has always done. But he taught al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) a du’aa to recite in qunoot al-witr, as will be seen later.


Abu Dawood (1425), al-Tirmidhi (464) and al-Nasaa’i (1746) of Al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali (may Allaah please him) recounted the Qunoot du’aa. The Messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him) taught me a few words to say in a few words:

“Allaahumma ihdini feeman had been a final fighter” aafayta wa a fighter tawallani tawallayta wa baarik li feema a’tayta “‘aadayta, tabaarakta rabbana wa ta’alayta the manja minka illa ilayk

(O Allah, guide me among those whom you have guided, forgive me among those whom you have forgiven, turn in friendship with those in whom you have become friends, bless me for what you have granted me, and save me from the evil of what you have decreed, because in truth you decree and no one can influence you, and he is not humiliated with whom you have created bonds of friendship, nor is he Honored who your enemy is, Blessed are you, Lord, and Exalted, place of your safety except with you). “

The last sentence – Laa manja minka illa ilayka (There is no safe place for You except with You) – was narrated by Ibn Mandah in al-Tawheed and classified as hasan by al-Albaani.

See Irwa ‘al-Ghaleel, hadith no. 426, 429.

Then he should send blessings on the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). See al-Sharh al-Mumti “by Ibn Uthaymeen (4 / 14-52).


It is inevitable to say after the tasleem: Subhaan al-Malik al-Quddoos three times, lengthening the vowels for the third time, told by al-Nasaa’i (1699) and classified as hasan by al-Albaani in Sahee 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 Sahih Isnaad. See Zaad al-Ma’aad of Ibn al-Qayyim, 1/337.
