Dua Qunoot For Those Suffering Around the World
Qunoot, according to the definition of the fuqaha’, is the name of a du’aa’
(supplication) offered during prayer at a specific point while standing.
If a calamity (na'uoodhubillah) befalls the Muslims, it is prescribed to
say Du’aa’ al- Qunoot after standing up from rukoo’ in the last rak’ah of each
of the five daily obligatory prayers, until Allaah relieves the Muslims of that
With regard whether al-qunoot should be recited before or
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said: According to most of the
ahaadeeth and according to the opinion of most of the scholars, al-qunoot should
come after the rukoo’, but if a person recites it before the rukoo’ that is o.k.
He has the choice of bowing when he has finished reciting from Qur’aan,
and when he stands up from bowing and says “Rabbana wa laka’l hamd,” then he may
recite al-qunoot, as described in most of the reports from the Prophet (peace
and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and as stated by most of the scholars; or

The Dua Of Qunoot:
Dua of Qunoot by ‘Umar:
(O Allaah, verily we seek Your help, we believe in You, we put our trust in You and
we praise You and we are not ungrateful to You. O Allaah, You alone we worship
and to You we pray and prostrate, for Your sake we strive. We hope for Your
mercy and fear Your punishment, for Your punishment will certainly reach the
disbelievers. O Allaah, punish the infidels of the People of the Book who are
preventing others from following Your way).
However it is permissible
make du’aa’ using words other than those mentioned above. Al-Nawawi said in
al-Majmoo’ (3/497): "The correct view which was stated definitively by the
majority of scholars is that there are no specific words, rather any du’aa’ may
The version narrated from ‘Umar is not something that we have
to follow, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not
pray using these words, so there is nothing wrong with adding more to them.
Shaykh al-Albaani (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: "There is nothing wrong
with adding more to this, cursing the infidels and sending blessings upon the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and praying for the
Muslims." (Qiyaam Ramadaan by al-Albaani, 31).
