Doa Qunut : Types, Readings & Translations. | The definition of "qunut" in Arabic means standing for a long time, obedience, prayer and solemnity. In istillah, it means a prayer that is recited by a Muslim in prayer while standing.

In this article, we will discuss more carefully the qunut prayer, its types, its reading in Arabic and Rumi, the translation of the meaning, as well as the advantages that can be taken from ibrah.

The Type of Qunut Prayer

There are three types of qunut prayer that are known, namely the dawn qunut prayer, the nazilah qunut prayer, and the qunut witr prayer.

Qunut subuh is usually recited during the morning prayer, whether in congregation or alone. It is recited in the second rak'ah after i'tidal before prostrating.

Qunut nazilah is read during prayer when a disaster occurs. For example, when the country was first hit by a terrible pandemic virus that resulted in "lockdown" and so on. Most imams in mosques in every state are encouraged to recite the qunut nazilah prayer when performing every congregational obligatory prayer. It is recited in the last rak'ah, after getting up from bowing for i'tidal.

As for qunut witr, it is always a circumcision practice in the last half of Ramadan when the witr prayer is 1 rakaat. The implementation is also the same as any other qunut prayer.

Evidence about the morning qunut prayer

Regarding the morning qunut prayer, there are some people who do not read it, for example when we pray in congregation in Mecca Al-Mukaramah, the imam will not recite this prayer. But the average state in Malaysia recites this qunut prayer at every congregational morning prayer.

There is no disagreement as to whether or not the Prophet SAW recited this prayer at dawn because indeed throughout his life, he once prayed qunut in the dawn prayer.

There is only a mistake, whether the Prophet SAW read it because of the calamity that befell the Muslims, or he actually read it every morning prayer.

Some scholars say:

"There is no continuous qunut in the morning prayer. It is only done in conjunction with calamity, as stated in the hadith of Anas bin Malik that the Prophet SAW qunut in morning prayer for a month, praying over several Arab tribes; Zakwan, Ushaiyyah and others. "- (Hadith Narrated by Sahih Bukhari and Muslim)

This opinion was pioneered by the jurists of hadith, and it was practiced by the Rashidun caliphs.

Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taimiyyah also opined:

"The Sunnah of the Messenger of God SAW and the caliphs of the Rashidun show that Qunut is prescribed only for certain reasons, and not as a continuous practice." – (Majmuk Fatawa 23/66).

The Syafie and Malik schools say that the morning qunut circumcision is continuous. Imam Nawawi attributed this opinion to most of the Salaf. – (Compound 3/504).

Those of us who adhere to the Syafie sect, practice the qunut prayer continuously in every morning prayer.

Imam Ahmad narrated from Anas RA:

Meaning: "Rasulullah SAW always recited he qunut in the morning prayer until he passed away." – (Hadith narrated by Ahmad)

The Rule of Reciting the Qunut Prayer in Prayer

Until now, the law of reciting the qunut prayer in the fardhu subuh prayer is still debated and there may be some things that are not clear about it.

Imam Ahmad narrated from Anas R.A., he said:

The Prophet SAW always recited the qunut prayer in the morning prayer until his death. (Ahmad's narration in the book Musnad Ahmad, the book Musnad Anas bin Malik)

According to the Office of the Mufti of the Federal Territory, reciting the qunut prayer in the fardhu subuh prayer and witr prayer during the last half of Ramadan is ab'adh circumcision based on Imam Syafie's school.

Things that are included in this ab'adh circumcision, if omitted, it should be replaced by prostration. This is explained more clearly in a quote from Imam al-Ramli's book:

فَيُقَالُ: مَا شُرِعَ لِلَّصَلَةِ إنْ وَجَبَ لَهَا فَشَرْطٌ, أَوْ فِيهَا فَرْكٌ, أَوْ سُنَّ وَجُرَ فَبَعْضٌ, وَإِلَّا فَهَيْئَةٌ

Meaning: What is prescribed in the prayer, if something is obligatory (outside the prayer) to complete it then it is a condition. If it is obligatory in the act of prayer, then it is a pillar. If it is circumcised and then accommodated (with prostration), then it is ab'adh circumcision. If not, then it is sunnah haiah. (Refer to Nihayat al-Muhtaj Syarh al-Minhaj, 1:449)

Doa Qunut Subuh with Rumi

doa qunut,

"Allah humah dini fiman hadait. Wa'a fini fiman 'afait. Watawallani fiman tawalait. Wabarikli fimaa a'tait. Waqinii syarramaa qadhait. Fainnaka taqdhi wala yuqdha 'alaik. Wainnahu layadziluman walait. Walaa ya'izzuman 'adait. Tabaa rakta rabbana wata'alait. Falakalhamdu 'ala maaqadzait. Wa astaghfiruka wa atubu Ilaik. Wa sallahu 'ala saidina. Muhammadinin nabiyil ummiyi. Waala aalihi wasahbihi wassalam.”

It means: "O Allah, give me guidance like those whom You have given guidance. Give me health as you have given health to them. And take care of me like the people you have taken care of. Bless me with whatever You have bestowed. And save me (by the grace of God) from the danger that You have determined. So truly, You are the one who punishes and not the one who is punished. And indeed do not despise those whom You lead. And the person you hate is not honorable. Glory be to You, our Lord and Most High. So to You belongs all the praise above what You judge. And we ask for Your forgiveness and we repent to You. And may God shower mercy and peace on our lord Prophet Muhammad and his family."

Doa qunut nazilah with rumi

اللَّهُمَّ اهْدِنا فِيمَنْ هَدَيْتَ وَعَافِنا فِيمَنْ عَافَيْتَ وَتَوَلَّنا فِيمَنْ تَوَلَّيْتَ وَبَارِكْ لنا فِيمَا أَعْطَيْتَ وقِنَا شَرَّ مَا قَضَيْتَ إِنَّكَ تَقْضِي وَلاَ يُقْضَى عَلَيْكَ وَإِنَّهُ لاَ يَذِلُّ مَنْ وَالَيْتَ تَبَارَكْتَ رَبَّنَا وَتَعَالَيْتَ
‎اللهم إلَيكَ نَشْكُو وَإيَّاكَ نَرْجُو أَنْ تَدْفَعَ عَنَّا الْبَلَاء والوَبَاء والفِتَنَ والمِحَنَ مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَمَا بطَن يا أرحم الراحمين ويا مُجِيبَ السَّائلِين
‎اللهم إِنَّا نَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ البَرَصِ وَالجُنُونِ والْجُزَامِ وَمِنْ سَيِّءِ الأَسْقَام
‎وصَلَّى اللهُ وسلَّم علَى نَبيِّنا محمَّدٍ وعَلى آله وصَحْبِهِ أجمعين

"Allahumma inna naj 'aluka fi nuhuri 'a da inna. Wa na 'uzu bika min syuru rihim. Allahumma baddid syam lahum wa farriq jam 'ahum wa syattit kalimata hum. Wa zal zil'aqda mahum. Wa sallit 'alayhim kalban min kilabik. Ya qahhar, ya jabbar, ya muntaqimu, ya Allahu, ya Allahu, Ya Allah. Allahumma ya mun zilal kitab. Ya mujriyas sahab. Yes hazimal ahzab. Ihzim hum, Ihzim hum, Ihzim hum. Wan shurna 'Alayhim."

Meaning: "Oh God, we put you on the neck of our enemies and we seek refuge with you from their evil. Ya Allah destroy their group. Ya Allah break their pact. Ya Allah melt their stand. Ya Allah destroy their steps. Hold your dogs to them. Oh God who is almighty. God Almighty. Oh God who answers almighty. Oh God, oh God, oh God. The one who revealed the book, the one who moved the clouds, the one who defeated the army of Ahzab. Beat them, beat them, beat them. And victory for us.”

Doa Qunut Witr with Rumi

"Wa'a fini fiman 'afait. Watawallani fiman tawalait. Wabarikli fimaa a'tait. Waqinii syarramaa qadhait. Fainnaka taqdhi wala yuqdha 'alaik. Wainnahu layadziluman walait. Walaa ya'izzuman 'adait. Tabaa rakta rabbana wata'alait. Falakalhamdu 'ala maaqadzait. Wa lakash syukru 'ala ma an 'amta bihi wa aw laita. Nas tagh firuka wa natubu ilaika. Allhumma 'afina wal tufu bina wah fadzna wan suru na wafaraj 'anna wal mus limin. Allahummak fina wa ayya hum jami 'ann syarro ma so ibiddunya waddin. Allahumma as lina wa as lih man fi so hi hi so so la hul islami wal muslimin. Allahumma la tuh likna wa ah lik man fi ha la ki hi so la hul islami wal muslimin.”

Sahwi prostration reading

If a person has accidentally left out the qunut prayer in the prayer, then he is circumcised to make the Sahwi prostration after reciting the final tahiyat before salam.

However, if we miss any of the acts in the prayer mentioned below, it is also sunnah to recite the Sahwi prostration:

  • Missing the harmony of prayer
  • Doubt the number of rak'ahs that have been performed
  • Died Sunat Ab'adh
  • Doing anything that is forbidden in prayer
  • Performing the pillar of prayer is not in place

The proof of this law is based on the actions of the Prophet SAW narrated by al-Bukhari from Abu Hurairah RA which means:

"The Prophet SAW prayed Zuhr or Asr together with us, then he greeted (after two rak'ahs). Then Zul-Yadain asked; 'O Messenger of Allah, has the prayer been reduced?' The Prophet SAW asked his companions: 'Is what he said true?' They replied: 'Yes'. Then His Majesty prayed two rak'ahs and after that he prostrated twice. Saad (bin Ibrahim) said: 'I saw 'Urwah bin al-Zubair praying Maghrib two rak'ahs and greeting. He talked, then prayed the remaining rak'ah and prostrated twice'. He said: 'Is that what the Prophet SAW did." – (Hadith Narrated by al-Bukhari)

"Subha na man la ya na mu wa la yas hu"

Meaning: "Glory be to God who does not sleep and does not forget."

Advantages of reading it

This qunut prayer is a practice modeled after Rasulullah SAW who recited the qunut prayer specifically for the companions who were killed for one consecutive month. With the qunut prayer, we ask for several things, among them are

1. Please be given instructions

In the reading that reads Allahummahdinii fii man hadaiit, this reading means Oh God, show me guidance as you have shown me

Hopefully with these words, we will always be given guidance and guidance so that we do not deviate from the path of God

2. Apply for Health Coverage

In the pronunciation that reads "Wa'aafinii fii man 'afaiit", the meaning is

And give me health as you have given health to them

This verse is a verse that asks for safety not only in health to avoid dangerous diseases, but also means to ask for protection from any danger in our lives as servants of God and human beings

3. Asking for Forgiveness

In the verse "WaAstaghfiruka wa atuubu ilaiik", we ask ALLAH swt for forgiveness from all the mistakes and mistakes we have made and will make.

Only Allah is worthy for us to ask for forgiveness.
