When should we recite Du`a' Al-Qunut (supplication recited while standing after bowing in the last unit of Prayer) whose wording is:
"O, Allah! Guide us..." in detail?
Du`a' Al-Qunut should be recited after Ruku` (bowing) in the last Rak`ah (unit of Prayer). (Part No. 7; Page No. 187) The best thing that was mentioned regarding Du`a' Al-Qunut
is what was narrated by the Five Compilers of Hadith (Imam Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Al-Tirmidhy, Al-Nasa'iy and Ibn Majah),
Al-Hasan ibn `Aly (may Allah be pleased with them both) that he said,
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) taught me some words to say during the Du`a' of Witr (Prayer with an odd number of units). They were, "O Allah, guide me among those You have guided; grant me security among those You have granted security; take me into Your charge among those You have taken into Your charge; bless me in what You have given; and guard me from the evil of what You have decreed, for You do decree, and nothing is decreed for You. Those whom You become their ally are not humiliated; and those whom You become their enemy will not triumph. Blessed and Exalted are You, our Lord."
He also narrated from
`Aly (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) used to say in the end of the Witr,
O Allah! I seek protection in Your Pleasure against Your Wrath; I seek protection in Your Pardon against Your Chastisement; I am not capable of enumerating praise of You; You are as You have praised Yourself.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
