The Meaning of the Part of the Witr Supplication on Guidance
December 7, 2014 § Leave a comment
Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “In the Qunut supplication [of al-Witr] when we say, ‘O Allaah! Guide me [along] with those [others] whom You have guided,’ we are asking Allaah تعالى for two types of guidance: that of knowledge and action, just as His Saying تعالى, ‘Guide us to the Straight Path,’ includes two types of guidance, that of [being guided to beneficial] knowledge and [also being guided] to action. So it befits the one reciting [such supplications] to bear in mind that he is asking for both of these types of guidance, that of knowledge and action.”
