Dua e Qunoot For Witr Namaz English Urdu Translation

Qunoot means humility, obedience and devotion. In Islam dua e qunoot is type of supplication that is recited after Surah Al-Fatiha and any other Surah during Qiyam in the last rakat of the three Witr of the Isha prayer.


What is Witr Prayer (Namaz) and how to Perform it?

Witr means odd number. Witr consists of three rakahs. The meaning of Witr is odd number and three rak'ahs represent an odd number due to which the Witr prayer is called Witr. In Islamic terminology, the Witr prayer is performed after the Farz (first 4 obligatory rakat) and sunnahs in the Isha prayer. Witr prayer consists of three rak'ahs. In witr it is wajib to add Surah after reciting Fatiha in every rakah. The method of performing the 3 witr rakahs is similar to other prayer. First perform 2 rakahs and in the third rakah after reciting surah in Qiyam, raise your hands to your ears before bowing(rukuh) and say Allahu Akbar as you do in Takbeer Tahirima, then bring your hands to its position as we do in Qiyam and read the Dua Qunut. it is obligatory to recite the Dua e Qunoot in witr.


In the light of the hadith, the Muslim Ummah agrees that we must perform Witr prayer; Because the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) always used to perform the Witr prayer during his travels, and the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) emphasized on praying the Witr prayer, even if a person could not pray the Witr prayer on time, should do it later. 


Hazrat Abu Saeed Khudri says that the Messenger of Allah (may God bless him and grant him peace) said: Pray the Witr prayer before dawn.


The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has ordered Muslims to perform Witr mention in several hadith. Missing the Witr prayer from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) even once in his life is not proven even on the occasion of Hajj.


When to read dua e qunoot in witr

It is recited in the last rakah of the three witr of Isha prayer after reciting surah fatiha + surah.

Can we recite surah ikhlas instead of dua e qunoot?

No, You cannot recite surah ikhlas because reciting dua in witr is wajib(obligatory act) and reciting Dua Qunut is Sunnah mu'akkadah (confirmed sunna) . You can recite any alternative for dua e qunot provided below.

What to do, if Dua e Qunot is not memorized?

Many muslims asked the questions like what to read in witr namaz instead of dua-e-qunoot, is dua qunoot compulsory for witr, is dua e qunoot compulsory in witr hanafi or What can I say instead of dua e qunot?
If a person does not remember Dua Qunut, what can he/she recite instead and is it acceptable? Reciting dua is wajib (obligatory act) in witr but dua-e-Qunoot is not wajid, it is Sunnah mu'akkadah (confirmed sunna). So every Muslim should memorize this dua e qunut.If it is difficult for someone to recite or memorize Dua e Qunut then you should recite one of the following (alternative for dua e qunoot), so that the wajib is fulfilled.

Rabbana atina fid dunya hasanatan wa fil Aakhirati hasanatan waqina ‘adhaban-nar (Surah Baqarah ayah 201)

رَبَّنَآ ءَاتِنَا فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِى ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ

 or Recite

  or simple Recite 

Allahummaghfirli   |   اَللَّهُمَّ اِغْفِرْ لِي


What to do if dua Qunut is forgotten?

If a person forgets to recite Dua Qunot in the third rakat of Witr prayer and goes into Ruku, and then remembers during Ruku, returns to Qiyam and recites Qunoot again, will this method be accepted? If a person forgets to recite the dua e Qunut in the third rakat of Witr prayer and goes into Ruku, then it is ordered, not to return to Qiyam to recite dua e Qunut, but to complete the prayer without reciting dua-e-qunoot and at the end do Sajdah Sahw.

دعائے قنوت

قنوت کے معنی ہیں عاجزی، اطاعت اور عقیدت۔ اسلام میں دعائے قنوت ایک قسم کی دعا ہے جو نماز عشاء کے تین وتر کی آخری رکعت میں سورہ فاتحہ اور قیام کے دوران کسی دوسری سورت کے بعد پڑھی جاتی ہے۔

کیا دعائے قنوت کے بجائے سورہ اخلاص پڑھ سکتے ہیں؟
نہیں، آپ سورہ اخلاص نہیں پڑھ سکتے کیونکہ وتر میں دعا پڑھنا واجب  ہے اور دعا قنوت پڑھنا سنت مؤکدہ ہے۔ آپ دعائے قنوت کے بجائے کوئی بھی متبادل دعا پڑھ سکتے ہیں۔ لہٰذا ہر مسلمان کو یہ دعاءِ قنوت حفظ کرنی چاہیے، اگر کسی کے لیے دعاءِ قنوت پڑھنا یا حفظ کرنا مشکل ہو تو آپ درج ذیل میں سے کوئی ایک پڑھے، تاکہ واجب پورا ہو جائے۔ 

رَبَّنَآ ءَاتِنَا فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِى ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ


 رَبِّ اغْفِرْ وَارْحَمْ وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الرَّاحِمِينَ


 اَللَّهُمَّ اِغْفِرْ لِي

وتر میں رکوع سے قیام کی طرف لوٹنا
اگر کوئی شخص نماز وتر کی تیسری رکعت میں دعاء قنوت پڑھنا بھول جائے اور رکوع میں چلا جائے اور پھر رکوع میں یاد آئے، قیام میں آکر دوبارہ قنوت پڑھے تو کیا یہ طریقہ قبول ہوگا؟ اگر کوئی شخص نماز وتر کی تیسری رکعت میں دعاء قنوت پڑھنا بھول جائے اور رکوع میں چلا جائے تو حکم ہے کہ قیام کی طرف واپس نہ ائے بلکہ نماز مکمل کرے اور آخر میں سجدہ سہو ادا کریں۔
