The Fajr Qunut: When Can It Be Recited?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

If a Hanafi reads du’a al Qunoot in Fajir prayer even so it is not part of Abu Hanifa’s math’hab to do so then is this ok?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It would be considered a contravention of the sunna, and blameworthy, in the Hanafi ijtihad. The only time one may recite the qunut supplication in fajr is when a calamity befalls the Muslims. In such a case, however, a relevant dua would be sought, not the Shafii qunut.

If a Shafii recites the regular qunut, one should neither raise one’s hand nor say “Ameen,” even if only quietly. If they recite a qunut for some calamity, one should still not raise one’s hands, but should say “Ameen,” quietly.
