Forgot Qunoot

Fatwaa ID: 809

Assalamu Alaykum

If a person during their witr salaah in isha forgot to read the dua qunoot what should they do once they remember if they were to be in ruku after for example?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

If one forgets to read the Qunoot in the Witr Salaah and remembers afterwards while he is still in salaah, then he should make Sajdah Sahw before ending the salaah. He does not have to recite it upon remembering nor does he have to go back to qiyaam. He will complete his salaah as normal and then perform the two Sajdahs of Sahw.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
