Raising the hands in Qunoot of the Witr Prayer


Abul Qaasim ibn Abi Saaleh Al-Hamdhaani said: "I heard Aba Haatim state" "Abu Zura'ah asked me, do you raise in Al-Qunoot?" I said "no." So I said to him "So do you raise your hands?" He said "yes." So I said "What is your proof." He said "A narration from Ibn Mas'ood." I said "Layth ibn Abi Suleem narrated to him (meaning the narration is weak due to Layth ibn Abi Sulaym)." He said"The narration of Abi Hurairah." I said "Ibn Lahee'ah narrated to him (meaning the narration is weak due to Ibn Lahee'ah)." He said "The narration of Ibn Abbaas." I said "Awf narrated to him (meaning the narration is weak due to Awf)." He said "So what's your proof for leaving it off?" I said "The Hadeeth of Anas t verily the Messenger of Allah Salla Allah Aliyia Wa Salem didn't used to raise his hands in supplication (in prayer) except for the prayer for rain". So he remained silent.


Reported by Ibn Asaakir in "تاريخ دمشق" the History of Damascus,
also look in

"سير أعلام النبلاء" in the biography of Abi Haazim and "تهذيب الكمال"


On the authority of Abdur Razaaq who reported that Ibn Juraij stated that Ibn Shehaab said "The raising of the hands in the Witr prayer in Ramadhaan never occurred i.e. from the MessengerSallah Allaah Aliyhi wa Salem."


This narration was recorded in the Musnnaf of Abdur Razaaq ibn Hamaam As-Sanaa'ni.

It's chain is authentic.


This was taken from the book "قيام الليل" The Night Prayer from the Noble Scholar

Yahya ibn ‘Ali Al-Hujoori (may Allah preserve him)



In summary: The Scholars say there is no objection for the one who raises his hands in Qunoot of the Witr Prayer due to the general proofs of raising the hands when supplicating, but there is no authentic narration affirmed that the Messenger Salla Allahu Aliyiah Wa Salem raised his noble hands in


Qunoot of the Witr Prayer. Its only affirmed he raised them in Qunoot An-Naazilah

And with Allah is the success

Shaikh Muqbil ibn Haadee al-Waadi`ee was asked:

What is the ruling on the duaa in the Taraaweeh Prayer, and what is the authenticity of the hadeeth for raising the hands in the Witr Prayer- along with a mention of the evidence?

The response:
As for duaa in the Taraaweeh Prayer, lengthening it as is done, then that is an innovation, an innovation, an innovation (bid’ah, bid’ah, bid’ah). The Prophet (صلّى الله عليه و سلّم) taught al-Hasan to say:

((اللّهمَّ اهْدِنيِ فِيمَنْ هَدَيْتَ، وَعافِنِي فِيمَنْ عافَيْتَ، وَتَوَلَّنيِ فِيمَنْ تَوَلَّيْتَ، وَبارِكْ لِي فِيما أَعْطَيْتَ، وَقِنيِ شَرَّ ما قَضَيْتَ، إنَّكَ تَقْضِي وَلا يُقْضٰى عَلَيْكَ، وَإِنَّهُ لا يَذِلُّ مَنْ وَالَيْتَ، وَلا يَعِزُّ مَنْ عَادَيْتَ، تَبارَكْتَ رَبَّناَ وَتَعَالَيْتَ))

Allaahummahdinee feeman hadayta, wa aafinee feeman aafayta, wa tawallanee feeman tawallayta, wa baarik lee feemaa atayta, wa qinee sharra maa qadayta, fa innaka taqdee wa laa yuqdaa alaika, wa innahu laa yadhillu man waalayta, wa laa yaizzu man aadayta, tabaarakta Rabbanaa wa taaalayta.

(O Allaah! Continually guide me and make me amongst those whom You have guided; and make me one of those whom You save and make secure from all evils; and make me one of those whom You love, and whose affairs You take care of; and grant me blessings in all that You have given me; and save ne from the evil of what You have decreed; for You alone decree, and none can contradict Your Decree. None can humiliate those whom You have befriended, and those who are enemies to You will never have dignity and honour. Exalted are You, O Allaah, and Supreme.)

Likewise what occurs in the Haramayn (i.e.Makkah and al-Madeenah) with regard to prolonging that, then it is not legislated; and the best way is the way of Muhammad (صلّى الله عليه و سلّم).

As for raising the hands, then it is reported by way of Abdullaah ibn Naafi ibn Abil-Amyaa, and he is weak (daeef); and it occurs in the Musnad of Imaam Ahmad as a hadeeth of Anas, and its basis occurs in the two
Saheehs, but it does not mention raising the hands, so we are in doubt as to its establishment; so raising the hands in the du`aa of Qunoot is not legislated.
