    Raisiing the hands and wiping the face in qunoot - Shaykh al-Albaani



    raising the hands and wiping the face in qunoot

    Shaykh al-Albaani says in his commentary:

    And raising the two hands in the (supplication of) qunoot for a naajilah[1][2] has been established from the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in his supplication against the mushrikeen (polytheists) who killed the seventy recitors (of the Qur’aan). Imaam Ahmad narrated it (3/137) and at-Tabaraanee in ‘As-Sagheer’ (p. 111) from the hadeeth of Anas with an authentic chain of narration. And it (i.e., raising the two hands) has also been established from ‘Umar and others[3] in the qunoot for the witr.

    And as for wiping them on the face in the qunoot, then this has not been mentioned at all – not from (the Prophet) (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), nor from any of his Companions – so it is an innovation no doubt.


    [1] a calamity that befalls the Muslims
    [2] Shaykh al-Albaani explains: “What is meant by a naajilah is a calamity that suddenly comes upon the Muslims, like an enemy attacking them, so here they supplicate with the qunoot. What is meant by a naajilah is a calamity that is new. As for something that has become usual, continuous, and something that has become a part of their lives, such as the Jewish occupation of Palestine, here the meaning of a naajilah has gone away and thus the qunoot is not made;” refer to silsilat ul-hudaa wa nnoor tape no. 132/3, 229/14, 704/3
    [3] such as ‘Abdullaah bin Mas’ood; refer to silsilat ul-hudaa wa nnoor tape no. 395/5
