Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen explains here the Dua we perform when we do Qunoot in salaat al-Witr.
This is a concise explanation of the Du’aa, or supplication that is said during the Witr prayer.2 This explanation was given by Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, during his lectures which he used to present in the central mosque in Mecca (al-Masjid al-Haraam) during the blessed month of Ramadhaan.
Thanks is given to ash-Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih bin Muhammad al-Harbee may Allaah reward him with good for reviewing it over with his eminence, the Shaykh, the author-may Allaah have mercy upon him-as well as his looking after its first printed publication in the year 1417-may Allaah reward him for this.
For the sake of spreading benefit of this simple explanation, and after comparing the written copy that was reviewed and relied upon by his eminence, the Shaykh, the author may Allaah have mercy upon him, then facilitated for the Lajnah ‘Ilmiyyah (The Committee of Scholarly Research) to combine distinctly this treatise and reinstate it’s
publication with a fatwa given by his eminence-may Allaah have mercy upon him concerning two questions related to the topic.
