Question:


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah


Can you please explain the qunoot in the fajr as far as how it is done, Also if I am praying behind an imam who does not make dua qunoot am I still needing to do it or how would I handle that situation?


 


Answer:


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


The Ḥanafi madhab does not require a person to read duāʿ al-qunūt in Fajr alah, this is contrary to Imām Shāfiʿī’s opinion. If a person prays behind an imām who is reading duāʿ al-qunūt in Fajr alah, he should just stand with them and remain quiet.[1]
