Question

The believers say some phrases, such as haqqan truly), nashhad (we bear witness)and sometimes yaa Allaah (O Allaah), when the imaam  is reciting du’aa’ al-qunoot . Is this permissible according to Islam? Is it permissible to raise the hands during al-qunoot in Fajr or Witr? Is it permissible to raise the hands and say Takbeer out loud behind the imaam for every Takbeer in the janaazah (funeral) prayer, and in the case of the seven and five takbeers in the Eid prayers?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

It is prescribed to say Ameen during the du’aa’ al-qunoot, and when the imaam praises Allaah it is sufficient to remain silent, but if one says Subhaanaka (Glory be to You) or Subhaanahu (glory be to Him), this is OK. One should raise the hands during the du’aa’ al-qunoot and when saying Takbeer during the janaazah and Eid prayers, because evidence to this effect has been narrated.

 And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions, and grant them peace.
