Audio Fatawa answered by Shaikh Ubaid Al-Jabri (http://en.miraath.net/content/fatawa-islamic-rulings)

Question no. 65: During the Tarawih prayer, whilst the Imam is reciting supplications in the final Qunut, what is the ruling regarding saying ‘ameen’ aloud after the du’aas are uttered, the raising of the hands and the extra supplications?

Answer by Shaikh 'Ubaid (hafidhahullaah):

There are three parts to this question.

First, regarding saying 'ameen' behind the Imam in the prayer, if it is in the Witr prayer or in Tahajjud or this type of prayer, then there is nothing wrong with this. And you can continue doing this as it is permissible for you to say 'Ameen' behind the Imam. This is to happen when the one who prays hears the Imam say a du'aa preceeded with such as 'Allaahumma...' [or 'Rabbaana']. However, when the Imam is glorifying Allaah 'Azza wa Jal, then you do not say 'Ameen;' rather you remain quiet.

If however the Imam makes du'aa in a morning prayer, then you do not say 'Ameen,' as this is an innovation.

Secondly, regarding raising the hands during the Qunut, if this happens during a Qunut in Fajr, then you should not raise your hands - this is an innovation, although the prayer still remains correct but you shouldn't raise your hands eventhough your Imam persists in saying these supplications. As for this happening during the Qunut of Witr, to this day I have not come across any evidence or hadeeth proving this action as authentic.

Thirdly regarding the extra supplications in the Qunut as in known in the Qunut of Hassan bin 'Ali (radhi Allaahu 'anhumma) that was taught to him by the Prophet sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam himself; then this Qunut is a brief supplication. I personally do not consider it permissible to add to this Qunut and elongate it with extra supplication due to it opposing the Sunnah of statement in which the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam taught his grand-son, Hassan. Additionally, this extra wording contains false praise which innovates in the supplication and causes hardship to those who pray behind the Imam; you even find that the Imams who do this often recite this in a melody such as singing, and reciting in a beautiful voice should only be done when reciting the Qur`aan.

jazaakAllaahu khayraa.

One of the most popular & perhaps, one of the most important hadeeth regarding Ramadan is that which says:

(( من صام رمضان إيماناً واحتساباً غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه، ومن قام رمضان إيماناً واحتساباً غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه، ومن قام ليلة القدر إيماناً واحتساباً غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه ))

Which mentions the forgiveness of previous sins for the one who, in Ramadan, fasts / stands in prayer "إيماناً واحتساباً" (eemaanan wa-htisaabaa) [sometimes translated as: "having faith & hoping for the reward"].

In this short Q & A (http://en.miraath.net/content/meaning-hadeeth-stating-faith-and-accountability-ramadhaan), Shaykh 'Ubayd - may Allah preserve him - explains the meaning of this phrase. May Allah help us to learn it and act upon it - so that we attain His forgiveness - and also teach it to others.
