What do we call Dua e Qunoot
In arabic qunoot means obedient.Just like that(khushu aur khuzoo)and to be frighten of allah doest comes to Qunoot.Namaz,Dua,prayer also can be called as Qunoot.E.g standing for a few more moment in namaz,being silent can also b called Qunoot,just like so many Qaliman can also b called as Qunoot.In Namaz we say Dua e Qunoot and we also pray to allah in namaaz with allah Almighties fear in our heart and because of Qunoot our Qayaam(standing in the namaz for praying fatiah and any surat of Quran with it) in namaz becomes long in time thats why it is called Qunoot.
From where does Qunoot has been proven?In hadis is there something written about Dua e Qunoot or not?
So thers a hadis in which its been written about Qunoot.
Rasulullaah-sallahu-alaihi-wasallam was cursing on tribe muzar at that moment Jibreal Alaihissalam came and told our prophet to be silet and said that Allah didn’t made to to curse someone or say something bad to someone, Allah sent you as a grace not a curse . You dont have any option to curse or forgive, its Allah choice that Allah forgive them or curse them.(Raazi)says that Hazrat Jibrael Alaihissalam told you about Qunoot that is: ALLAHUMMA INNA NASTA-E-NUKA VANASTAG FIRUKA VANUA MINUBIKA VANATAVAKKALU ALAIKA VANUA-MI ALAIKAL KHAER.
some people have opposed while the tale was published publicly that this tale isn’t the correct one or been proven right, But this is not true because many author have give a space about this tale in their book,Aurthor like musannif Ibne Abi Shaeba , Marasile Abu Dawood,Sunane Baehaqi,Qanzool Ammal, Itqan and there are many more books in which its written about Qunoot.
2) nd thing is that that unification or oneness of God and better Qalimah of Dua are never said by anyone rather that our prophet ( Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi-Wasallam).
3) rd if this tale would’ve been wrong than it would have not been possible that thismuch Muslim are following it,And our prophet have said that my maximum number of ummah would never follow the sayings if it’s wrong,from many centuries Qunoot is been folloed by maximum number of Muslim proves that its been proven by our prophet(Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi-Wasallam).
Hazrat Hasan Bin Ali says that Nabi taught me this Dua and i use it namaz’ae Vitra:ALLAHUMMAH DINI FIMAN HADAITH WA-AAFINI FIMAN AAFAIT WATAWALLANI FIMAN TAWALLAIT WABARIKLI FIMA AATAIT WAKINI SHARRAMA KADAIT FA-INNAKATTAQDI WALA UKHDA ALAIK WAINNAHU LAYAZILLUMAV WA-ALAIT TABARAKTA RABBANA SALLAHU ALANNABI .From this two Qunoot you can read anyone you remember by your mind.
what if someone doesn’t know both the Dua e Qunoot?
then he should learn this Dua RABBANA AATINAFID-DUNIYA HASANAH WAFIL AAKHIRATI HASANAH WAKINA AZABANNAAR and if he doesn’t know this Dua too then he could say 3 times ALLAHUMMAGFIR LANA but remember to learn Qunoot as soon as possible because Dua Qunoot is very meaningful and greatful Sallallahu Alaihi-Wasallam have taught us.
In Vitra namaz why do we have to raise our hands to the ears before saying Dua e Qunoot?
Because Sallallahu Alaihi-Wasallam have said that in this moment we have to rebuild our rakat beafore saying Qunoot.
what’s the rule behind leaving our hands from the hands tied downside the bellybutton ?
while leaving both hands no need to go straight down till the heap side,you can raise it from the half the way up towards the ears.This is the better way to do it and if someone doesn’t follow or forgets to follow this rule then its okay the namaz will be completed, but this is the right way so it’s better to follow.
MISTAKES THAT HAPPENS BY MISTAKE IN VITRA NAMAZ.
In the last rakat of Vitra we forget to say Dua Qunoot and direct gets down for rukooh : In this situation we have to complete our rukooh and then complete the namaz as usual but in the end remember to do SAZDAE SAHWA.
rule for SAZDAE SAHWA: when we sit for Attahiyaat after finishing the Attahiyaat turn your head to the right side do the SALAM (ASSALAMU ALAIKUM WARAHMATTULLAAH )and get back to Attahiyaat and do SAZDAH 2 times and then finish namaz as usual.
DUA E QUNOOT is WAAJIB and when the WAAJIB is forgotten then the namaz can b fixed by SAJDAE SAHWA.
