✦REVIVE A SUNNAH ⇨ Pray for your suffering brothers & sisters, Ask Allaah to protect them and save them, and to help them against their enemy by Praying (Du’aa) QUNOOT in Obligatory Prayers at the time of calamity✦

It is proven that the Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alyhi wasallam) said Qunoot at the time of calamity on a number of occasions:
1. ►It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas (radi Allahu ‘anhu) said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllahu ‘alyhi wasallam) prayed Qunoot for a month in Zuhr, ‘Asr, Maghrib, ‘Isha’ and Fajr prayer, when he said: Sami’a Allaahu liman hamidah in the last rak’ah, praying against some tribes of Banu Sulaym, and against Ri’l, Dhakwaan and ‘Usayyah, and those who were behind him said Ameen. [Narrated by Abu Dawood (1443). Ibn al-Qayyim said: A saheeh hadeeth. Zaad al-Ma’aad, 1/280; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood]

2. ►Some of the Arab tribes betrayed 70 of the companions of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) and killed them. Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: News of that reached the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him), and he prayed Qunoot for a month, praying during Fajr prayer against some of the tribes of the Arabs, against Ri’l, Dhakwaan, ‘Usayyah and Bani Lahyaan. [Narrated by al-Bukhaari (3064)]

3. ►It was narrated that Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: Qunoot was offered in Maghrib and Fajr prayer. [Narrated by al-Bukhaari (798)]

******************************

A number of things may be learned from these hadeeths, including the following:

Firstly: it is prescribed to pray Qunoot at times of calamity. Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Qunoot is Sunnah at the time of calamity. This view is that of the fuqaha’ among the muhadditheen. And it is narrated from the Rightly Guided Caliphs. End quote.

Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (23/108)

Secondly: The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) said Qunoot at times of calamity in all of the five daily prayers, and he said Qunoot in Fajr and Maghrib prayer, and especially in Fajr. Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Most of his Qunoot — referring to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) — was in Fajr. End quote.

Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (22/269).

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The practice of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) was to say Qunoot especially at times of calamity, and not to do so at other times. He did not limit it only to Fajr, rather most of his Qunoot was in Fajr because it is prescribed to make that prayer lengthy. End quote. -Zaad al-Ma’aad (1/273)
