Dua kunoot for fajr and asr

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) was that he would normally make the qunoot dua after performing the ruku of the second rakah of the Fajr or morning prayer.


Hadrat Anas ibn Malik (r.a.) said: "The Messenger of Allah (saws) did not stop making the qunut dua during the dawn (Fajr) prayer until he left this world."

Maybe the imam you have mentioned prays the Surah Al-Fateha, and keeps silent for a little while before reciting other Aayahs or a Surah to complete the rakah, so that the believers can pray the Surah Al-Fateha themselves. There is absolutely no harm in this.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your Brother in Islam,
