dua qunoot

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!

Dua Qunoot 2 Qunoot-e-Witr Prayer:

اَللّٰھُمَّ اھْدِنِیْ فِیْمَنْ ھَدَیْتَ وَعَافِنِیْ فِیْمَنْ عَافَیْتَ وَتَوَلَّنِیْ فِیْمَنْ تَوَلَّیْتَ وَبَارِکْ لِیْ فِیْمَآ اَعْطَیْتَ وَقِنِیْ شَرَّ مَا قَضَیْتَ فَاِنَّکَ تَقْضِیْ وَلَا یُقْضٰی عَلَیْکَ اِنَّہٗ لَا یَذِلُّ مَنْ وَّالَیْتَ (وَلَا یَعِزُّ مَنْ عَادَیْتَ) تَبَارَکْتَ رَبَّنَا وَتَعَالَیْتَ


“O Allah! Guide me among those You have guided, pardon me among those You have pardoned, turn to me in friendship among those You have turned in friendship, and bless me in what You have bestowed. Protect me from the evil You have decreed, for You decree, and none can decree over You. Truly, he whom You show allegiance to is never abased, and he whom You take as an enemy is never honored. Blessed are You, our Lord, and Exalted.”

What should a person do if they do not remember Dua Qunoot?


Answer: From a religious perspective, if a person does not remember Dua Qunoot, they should recite a specific supplication in its place. The recitation of this supplication is a blessed practice, and until Dua Qunoot is remembered, one should recite the following:


“اللّٰهُمَّ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنيَا حَسَنَةً وَّفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَّقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ”


If this is also not remembered, then recite:


“اللّٰهُمَّ اِغْفِرْ لِي”


Say this three times. If this is also not remembered, then simply say:




Reciting this will fulfill the requirement, and there will be no need for Sujood Sahw (prostration of forgetfulness). The prayer will still be considered valid.
