Therefore, it is important that one learns the correct way of doing this dua in order to achieve the full benefit from it.

(اللَّهمَّ اهدني فيمن هَديتَ، وعافِني فيمن عافَيتَ، وتولَّني فيمَن تولَّيتَ، وبارِكْ لي فيما أعطَيتَ، وقِني شرَّ ما قضيتَ، فإنَّكَ تَقضي ولا يُقضَى عليكَ، وإنَّهُ لا يذلُّ مَن واليتَ، تبارَكْتَ ربَّنا وتعاليتَ)

(Allahummahdini fiman hadait, wa a'fini fiman afait, wa tawallani fiman tawallait, wa barik Li fima atait, wa qini sharra ma qadait, fa Innaka taqdi wa la yuqda Alaik, wa innahu la yadhillu man walait, tabarakta Rabbana wa ta'alait.)

'O Allah guide me among those You have guided, pardon me among those You have pardoned, befriend me among those You have befriended, bless me in what You have granted, and save me from the evil that You decreed. Indeed You decree, and none can pass decree, and none can pass decree upon You, indeed he is not humiliated whom You have befriended, blessed are You our Lord and Exalted.'"

(اللَّهمَّ إنِّي أعوذُ برضاكَ من سخَطِك وبمعافاتِكَ من عُقوبتِكَ، وأعوذُ بِك منكَ، لا أُحصي ثناءً عليكَ أنتَ كما أثنيتَ على نفسِكَ)

"Allahumma inni a'udhu biridaka min sakhatika, wa bi-mu'afatika min 'uqubatika, wa a'udhu bika minka, la uhsi thana'an 'alaika, Anta kama athnaita 'ala Nafsika

(O Allah! I seek protection against Your Wrath in Your Pleasure. I seek protection in Your Pardon against Your chastisement, I am not capable of enumerating praise of You. You are as You have lauded Yourself)."

(اللهم اقسم لنا من خشيتك ما تحول به بيننا وبين معصيتك، ومن طاعتك ما تبلّـغـنا به جنتَك، ومن اليقـين ما تُهـّون به عـلينا مصائبَ الدنيا، ومتـّعـنا اللهم باسماعِـنا وأبصارِنا وقـواتـِنا ما أبقـيتنا، واجعـلهُ الوارثَ منـّا، واجعـل ثأرنا على من ظلمنا، وانصُرنا على من عادانا، ولا تجعـل مصيبـتَـنا في ديـننا، ولا تجعـل الدنيا أكبرَ هـمِنا، ولا مبلغَ علمِنا، ولا اٍلى النار مصيرنا، واجعـل الجنة هي دارنا، ولا تُسلط عـلينا بذنوبـِنا من لايخافـُـك فينا ولا يرحمـنا)

"Allahumma-qsim lana min khashyatika ma tahulu bihi bainana wa baina ma'sika, wa min ta'atika ma tuballighuna bihi jannataka, wa minal-yaqini ma tuhawwinu 'alaina masa-'ibad-dunya. Allahumma matti'na biasma'ina, wa absarina, wa quwwatina ma ahyaitana, waj'alhul-waritha minna, waj'al tharana 'ala man zalamana, wansurna 'ala man 'adana, wa la taj'al musibatana fi dinina, wa la taj'alid-dunya akbara hammina, wa la mablagha 'ilmina, wa la tusallit 'alaina man-la yarhamuna,

O Allah, apportion to us such fear as should serve as a barrier between us and acts of disobedience; and such obedience as will take us to Your Jannah; and such as will make easy for us to bear in the calamities of this world. O Allah! let us enjoy our hearing, our sight and our power as long as You keep us alive and make our heirs from our own offspring, and make our revenge restricted to those who oppress us, and support us against those who are hostile to us let no misfortune afflict our Deen; let not worldly affairs be our principal concern, or the ultimate limit of our knowledge, and let not those rule over us who do not show mercy to us)."

(اللَّهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ لي دِينِي الذي هو عِصْمَةُ أَمْرِي، وَأَصْلِحْ لي دُنْيَايَ الَّتي فِيهَا معاشِي، وَأَصْلِحْ لي آخِرَتي الَّتي فِيهَا معادِي، وَاجْعَلِ الحَيَاةَ زِيَادَةً لي في كُلِّ خَيْرٍ، وَاجْعَلِ المَوْتَ رَاحَةً لي مِن كُلِّ شَرٍّ)

"Allahumm-aslih li diniyalladhi huwa 'ismatu amri, wa aslih li dunyaya-llati fiha ma'ashi, wa aslih li akhirati-llati fiha ma'adi, waj'alil-hayata ziyadatan li fi kulli khair, waj'alil-mauta rahatan li min kulli sharrin

(O Allah, make my religion easy for me by virtue of which my affairs are protected, set right for me my world where my life exists, make good for me my Hereafter which is my resort to which I have to return, and make my life prone to perform all types of good, and make death a comfort for me from every evil)."

is dua e Qunoot compulsory in Witr?

No, it is not compulsory to recite Dua Qunoot in Witr prayer. The Prophet (PBUH) used to recite it but did not make it an obligation on his followers. Therefore, one may choose to recite any other supplication or refrain from doing so altogether while performing witr salah. However, due to its immense spiritual significance and benefits, many scholars do encourage reciting this beautiful dua as an optional addition during one’s personal prayers. May Allah (SWT) grant us all His divine blessings, Ameen.

What if I don t remember dua qunoot?

It is not necessary for one to recite words of supplication specifically narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) when performing dua qunoot. In fact, it is permissible for the worshipper to choose other words as a form of du’aa’ or to extend beyond these by adding verses from the Qur’an which contain supplications that could also suffice in regard to Qunoot. Imam al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) clarified this point by noting that there is no specific du’aa’ required in order for Qunoot to be considered valid; however, he did mention it is preferable to repeat those words reported in the Sunnah. It is worth mentioning that despite the absence of certain texts specifically detailing what should be said during Qunoot, one can easily find numerous instances throughout Islamic literature which provide more insight into this practice. Furthermore, scholars have established that uttering words of supplication coupled with sincere devotion and humility will grant one greater spiritual benefit regardless of which particular phrases are said.
