Assalamu wa alaikum

EIdul Fitr Mubarak to all of you May Allah shower his blessings and pardon our sins and mistakes committed in this month of guidance.

In the witr prayer if we forget to say qunoot in the 3rd rakath and ruku is done Is the sajda Sahu necessary or repeat the prayer again

Answer:


 

Qunut in Prayers

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 absolute majority of scholars and jurists in Islam are of the opinion that the recitation of the supplication of qunut in witr prayers is optional, as there is enough evidence in the established and authentic Sunnah that the Messenger of Allah (saws) would at times recite the qunut supplications in the witr prayers, and at times he (saws) would abstain.

 

Thus if one does not recite the qunut supplication in their witr prayers for any reason there is absolutely no harm as its omission does not in any way effect the validity of ones prayers, nor would it be necessary to perform the sajdah sahu (prostration of forgetfulness), nor would be it be considered necessary to repeat the prayer again.

 

There is enough evidence in the established and authentic Sunnah that the Messenger of Allah (saws) prayed the witr prayers in both ways, with and without qunut; thus if one follows any one of the ways he would be in accordance with the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).

 

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

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

 

Burhan
