Dua Qunoot – Assalamu’alaikum QOI readers, I hope each and everyone of you is blessed and in the safe guards of Allah SWT.
Today, I’m going to compile Dua Qunoot, in its original Arabic form, as well as its transliteration in different languages such in its Latin and English form. And good news insya’Allah – I will also be coming up with transliteration in Malay as well, which you can select the ‘Translation’ Icon at the menu bar at the top right hand corner. I will also aim to cover its meaning so we can truly understand the significance and the benefits of reciting the Dua.

What is Dua Qunoot?
Dua Qunoot (Arabic: القنوت or also known as Dua e Qunoot) is generally being recited during i’tidal or standing during the last rakaat during the Fajr (Dhuha) and Witir (Witr) prayers. The word ‘Qunoot’ derived from the the word “Qanata” which means ‘to stand in prayer with excellence and silence, and to be submissive and humble before Allah SWT‘.
It is sunnah (recommended) to supplicate with qunut in the Fajr and witr prayer, however, different mazhab has different opinions with regards to it which I’m not going to delve into that for now.
Dua Qunoot (In Arabic)
اَللّهُمَّ اهْدِنِىْ فِيْمَنْ هَدَيْتَ
وَعَافِنِى فِيْمَنْ عَافَيْتَ
وَتَوَلَّنِىْ فِيْمَنْ تَوَلَّيْتَ
وَبَارِكْ لِىْ فِيْمَا اَعْطَيْتَ
وَقِنِيْ شَرَّمَا قََضَيْتَ،
فَاِ نَّكَ تَقْضِىْ وَلاَ يُقْضَى عَلَيْكَ
وَاِ نَّهُ لاَ يَذِلُّ مَنْ وَالَيْتَ
وَلاَ يَعِزُّ مَنْ عَادَيْتَ
تَبَارَكْتَ رَبَّنَا وَتَعَالَيْتَ
فَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلَى مَا قَضَيْتَ
وَاَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَاَتُوْبُ اِلَيْكَ
وَصَلَّى اللهُ عَلَى سَيِّدَنَا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ اْلاُمِّيِّ وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ وَسَلَّمَ

Applying In Daily Practice
In practice, the recitation of dua qunoot above-mentioned is for ma’mum or if you’re doing prayers individually (read: Allah hummah DINII fiiman hadait). However, if you’re an imam, or the person leading the prayers, you will have to replace it with “Allah hummah DINAA fiiman hadait” and apply it throughout the dua. Reason being the word “NII” (DINII) refers to yourself (me) and the word “NAA” (DINAA) refers to a group of people (us).
Islam breaks down qunut into two. The first is Qunut Nazilah which means qunut which is carried out when you’re facing a calamity. The second one, Qunut Shalat, which refers to the qunut that is being recited during i’tidal (standing after ruku’) after every rakaat during fardhu subuh, as above-mentioned.
