Dua e Qunoot: What It Is and How to Perform I

Dua e Qunoot is a very important prayer that Muslims pray, especially when performing the five daily prayers. Dua e Qunoot means supplication, and it refers to a set of prayers that are said in the third of the five daily prayers. This article will explain Dua e Qunoot, what it consists of, how it’s performed, and why this prayer is so important to Muslims of all ages and walks of life. 

 

Learning about Dua e Qunoot 

Dua e Qunoot means supplication for protection and is a very powerful dua that is used for protection from any form of harm. If you feel as though you are being attacked by Jinn, Shaytaan, evil people or negative energies in any way, make Dua Qunoot at least three times in a row after salah. This will help protect you from all forms of harm. You can also recite it before going to sleep every night, especially if your bedroom has windows facing east. This is because when the sun rises in the morning, it’s rays fall on anything pointing towards east – including your bed and anyone sleeping there! So it’s important to recite Dua Qunoot at least three times before going to sleep each night so that no harm comes your way while you sleep. The last thing you want is for something bad to happen to you just because you weren’t aware of its presence. But with Dua Qunoot, such worries will be a thing of the past. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said that reciting Surat Al-Ikhlas 100 times after every prayer will secure one against shaytan until daybreak. That should tell us how powerful reciting Surat Al-Ikhlas really is. To top it off, we have Dua Qunoot, which is essentially saying Ikhlas 3 times. When we say Ikhlas 3 times immediately after Salaah we should automatically say Dua Qunoot without even thinking about it. It’s simply second nature to say these words right after Salaah since they are what follows directly after Ikhlas in our daily prayers anyway. And besides using it to ward off jinn and devils who attack us during our sleep, you can use Surat Al-Ikhlas and Dua Qunoot to remove whatever illness you may have had previously inflicted upon yourself by these negative forces; if you had been cursed by someone; or if an evil eye was cast upon you or your loved ones. 

Step 2 – Recite Surah Al-Fatihah 

In order to fulfill your prayer obligation, you must recite at least one juz’ (sura) of Qur’an. For example, if you were making wudu in order to pray Dhuhr, then you would recite one juz’ of Surah Al-Fatihah. If you are making wudu for fajr, then you would recite two juz’ of Surah Al-Fatihah since it is a short prayer. If you are praying maghrib or ‘ishaa’ with just wudu, then you will need to recite three juz‘ of Surah Al-Fatihah since they are longer prayers. You can use any translation that is easy for you to understand as long as it is an accurate translation; even a children’s version is fine. There are no set rules on how many times each verse should be recited; however, most scholars recommend that each verse be recited three times except for certain verses which have special rulings that apply only to them and not other verses. As an example, when we say Allahumma salli ala Muhammadin wa ‘ala ali Muhammadin kama sallayta ala Ibrahima wa ‘ala ali Ibrahim – O Allah send blessings upon Muhammad and upon his progeny as You sent blessings upon Abraham and upon his progeny – we say it once. When we say subhanaka Allahumma Rabbana wa bihamdika wa tabarakasmuka wa ta’ala jadduka wa la ilaha ghairuk – Glory be to You our Lord! And Blessed is Your Name! And High is Your Majesty! And Exalted is Your Greatness! And there is no deity save Thee – we say it twice. 


Step 3 – Recite durood shareef 

Once you’ve started with your dua qunoot, recite a few Durood Shareef. Durood is a niyyah (intention) for salah that has been passed down from generations of Muslim communities. In Salah (the formal prayer), we recite a niyyah followed by one Durood Shareef for each obligatory Raka’h. When it comes to making duas during other times of need, however, there are many opinions on how many to recite. Some say three; others say seven or 21. Regardless of how many you choose to recite, keep in mind that they should be recited after each rakat in Maghrib and before sleeping at night—and any time else when duas are needed. You can also make a specific intention or niyyah for your dua qunoot recitation just as you would for an obligatory salah: O Allah! I make Du’aa through Your Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). O Allah! 

Step 4 – Recite salawat on the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) 

According to numerous reports in Islamic narrations, Allah rewards du’as that are accompanied by a recitation of salawat on Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم). The salawat should be recited after every two rak’ahs while performing wudu or while lying down before going to sleep. Reciting salawat is also recommended for those who want to ask for something from Allah but don’t know how to pray properly. To recite salawat on Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم), say: Allahumma salli alaa Muhammadin wa Aali Muhammadin kama sallayta alaa Ibraheema wa Aali Ibraheema innaka hameedum majeed. This means, O Allah! Send prayers upon Muhammad and his family as you sent prayers upon Abraham and his family; surely you are Praiseworthy and Glorious. Step 5 – Pray Witr Salah at Night : Witr prayer is an optional prayer that can be performed at night after praying any number of compulsory prayers during day time. For example, if one has prayed 4 obligatory rakats during day time then he/she can pray 12 more optional rakats witr prayer at night. Witr Prayer consists of 3 Rakats. In each Rakat one must read Surah Al-Fatiha followed by another surah and end with reading again Surah Al-Fatiha in all three Rakats together as one unit. 

 
 

Tips for Women to do Dua e Qunoot in Their Pardah 

Dua Qunoot is a specific Dua that can be recited in odd numbers of rakats. Here are some tips for women who may not have been taught how to perform their prayers in Pardah. The way you dress up will determine whether or not you can do dua qunoot, since it must be done with your head covered. You should cover your hair with a scarf, or wear an abaya/jilbab that covers your entire body except for your face and hands (and perhaps feet). To do dua qunoot, you must also make sure that no one else sees you doing it, as it is considered improper for others to see you praying in such a manner. Women should ideally pray behind men so they don’t see them doing dua qunoot. If there are no men around, you can use a mirror to check if anyone is watching you from behind. If there’s still someone looking at you from behind, then either go home and pray there or wait until night time when everyone has gone home before performing dua qunoot. At night time when everyone has gone home before performing dua qunoot. At night time it’s safe to assume that nobody will see you doing your prayer because most people are asleep at that time of day anyway!
