Therefore, it is an authentic hadith, which is why many scholars say it is permissible.

Now, what is the ruling on saying the Qunoot every single night? Some scholars say this is sunnah; others say maintaining it every night is not sunnah.

Because it was never reported that the prophet (SAW) had done it every single time,

Making Qunoot in Witr is good. You can do it some nights and skip some nights. Allah knows best.

What to read instead of Dua Qunoot?

By the way, Allah SWT has made it easy to memorize any verse of the Quran or any Dua’s. But still, if someone does not remember the Qunoot, you can read the second Surah below.

If you do not recite this Dua, you can recite the Surah Ikhlas a total of three times.

قُلْ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ ٱللَّهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُۥ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌۢ
