Q 4: Some Muslims repeat words like "Indeed," "We testify," and "O Allah!" while the Imam is saying the Du`a' of Qunut (supplication recited while standing after bowing in the last unit of Prayer). Is this permissible according to Shari`ah (Islamic law)? Is it permissible to raise the hands in the Qunut of the Fajr (Dawn) or Witr (Prayer with an odd number of units) Prayers? Is it permissible to raise the hands and utter the Takbir (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]") loudly after each Takbir said by the Imam (the one who leads congregational Prayer) in the Funeral Prayer, and after the seven and five Takbirs of Salat-ul-`Eid (the Festival Prayer)?A: It is permissible to say "Amin" after the Du`a' of Qunut. When the Imam is praising Allah (Glorified be He), it is sufficient for the Ma'mum (a person being led by an Imam in Prayer) to remain silent, but there is no harm if they say: "Subhanak (Praise be to You)!" or "Subhanahu (Praise be to Him)!" Likewise, there is no harm if they raise their hands during Qunut, and while uttering the Takbir of the Funeral Prayer and Salat-ul-`Eid, (Part No. 7; Page No. 49)?as there are narrations indicating this.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
