Duas For Qunoot
One of the signs of a humble servant is that he constantly consults his creation. We praise God Almighty and thank Him, Glory be to Him. It is truly our utmost duty to ask Him for His goodness and forgiveness in times of trouble and comfort.
Allah said in the Holy quran:
And your Lord says: “Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayer): but those who are too arrogant to serve Me will surely find themselves in Hell – in humiliation!”
“When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he makes Dua toMe.”
What Is Dua Qunoot!
Dua or supplication (دعاء) is the Islamic term for the act of supplication. it is the link between the servant and Allah, helping in the resolution of our problems. Dua is talking directly to Allah about anything, asking him anythingn addressing him by any of his names.
The word Qunoot can be translated as piety. That is: submission to God, acknowledgment of servitude, and obedience that does not imply sin. While Dua Qunoot means a specific supplication that is said in difficult times.
There are two types of Qunut supplications, the first recited by the Prophet Muhammad during the Witr prayer. The second recited at Fajr prayers in difficult times and very unfortunate events.
However, people of the Shafi’i schoolrecite Du’a Al Qunut regularly in the Fajr Prayer. Other schools have a different opinion that is not regularly recited.
Qunoot can be done at any time, the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, used to say Qunoot in both Fajr and Witr Salah.
Now, it is not obligatory for Dua Qunot to be recited in Witr Salah. But it is Sunnah or desirable to make Qunoot in the Witr prayer.

Importance Of Dua Qunoot
Supplication is very important in the lives of Muslims because supplication is like a conversation with God Almighty in which we put our needs before Him and ask Him to help us solve our problems. We ask God Almighty for everything we want in our lives, no matter how big or small.
Supplication is a way to communicate with God, and thanks to supplication, we get closer to our Lord. Therefore, supplication is the source of bringing the supplication closer to God Almighty. Dua is not only a submission to our needs before God Almighty, but it is also a form of worship.
Dua is a weapon with which we can change our situation by asking God Almighty for help. Dua can change fate, so try to make dua in every situation because with dua you will always get closer to God Almighty.
The use of supplication is highly emphasized in the Qur’an and Sunnah and is a means of bringing people closer to God.
Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran:
“When my servants ask you concerning me, (tell them) I am indeed close (to them). I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calls on me.” (Quran, 2:186).
So with this verse, we can say that Allah Almighty listens to us when we make Dua. We should always seek help from Allah.
The importance of dua can be evaluated from this Hadith:
“Nothing is more honorable to Allah the Most High than Dua.”
1- Raise your hands in humility and submission to Allah wherever you are.
2- Closeness to Allah sincerity, sincerity of intention, contentment, and reverence.
3- Comfort, peace, happiness, joy, and elation.
4- Good of this world and the hereafter (blessing, wellness, assistance, relief and safety).
5- Solution for our problems and improve our conditions and to prevent all evil and bring every benefit.
Types of Dua Qunut!
1. Dua Qunut (Regular) recited in Fajr prayer as well as the Witr prayer in Ramadan.
2. Dua Qunut (Irregular) recited in times of calamity during the obligatory prayers.
The ruling for both of these two types of Dua Qunut is Sunnah.
Dua Qunut is recited on the last rakah of salah before proceeding to the Sujud position. It is recommended to raise hands while reciting the Dua Qunut.
