What is Qunut?
Qunut refers to a dua (supplication) made at a precise place while standing during prayer.
When Muslims face adversity, Qunut is advised during prayer.
According to the more correct of the two scholarly opinions, it is prescribed after ruku’ (bowing) in the Witr prayer.
If a misfortune (nazilah) befalls the Muslims, it is recommended to say Dua al-Qunut after rising from ruku’ in the last rak’ah of each of the five daily obligatory prayers until Allah relieves the Muslims of the calamity. (See Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd’s Tashih al-Du’a, page 460).
There is no sahih evidence that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) specifically chose Fajr for Qunut or that he recited it in Fajr prayer all of the time, under all circumstances.
Rather, it is established that he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) recited Dua al-Qunut at times of calamity, using terms that were suited for the circumstances.
It is preferable for the imam to limit Qunut to times of calamity.
There are several wordings that have been narrated for Dua al-Qunut in Witr prayer.
When praying Qunut in a time of calamity, one should make supplications that are appropriate to the situation.
It was narrated that ‘Umar prayed Qunut with the words above.
