Ṣalāt al-Witr صلاة الوتر — odd-numbered prayer

In the third rak'ah after reciting the additional surah or verses following the fatihah, raise your hands to your ears saying Allahu akbar and tie them again below the navel as normal. It is then necessary [wajib] to make qunut, hence, recite the following:

it is required to make a plea to Allāh, such as ‘Allāhumma ighfirlī’ three times.

qunūt is a duʿāʾ said while standing

Qunūt

اَللّهُمَّ إِنَّا نَسـْتَعـِيْنُكَ وَنَسْتَغـْفِرُكَ وَنُؤْمِنُ بِكِ وَنُثْنِيْ عَلَيْكَ الْخَيْرَ، وَنَشْكُرُ ، وَلاَ نَكْفُرُكَ، وَ نَخْلَعُ وَ نَتُرُكَ مَنْ يَفْجُرُكَ، اَللّهُمَّ إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَلَكَ نُصَلِّيْ وَنَسْجُدُ وَإِلَيْكَ نَسْعَى وَنَحْفِدُ وَنَخْشَى عَذَابَكَ وَنَرْجُوْ رَحْمَتـَكَ إِنَّ عَذَابَكَ الْجِدَّ بِالْكُفَّارِ مُلْحِقٌ. [1][1]

Allāhumma innā nastaʿīnuka wa-nastahdīk,
wa-nastaghfiruka wa-natūbu ilayk,
wa-nuʾminu bika wa-natawakkalu ʿalayk,
wa-nuthnī ʿalayka al-khayra kullah,
nashkuruka wa-lā nakfuruk,
wa-nakhlaʿu wa-natruku may yafjuruk.
Allāhumma īyāka naʿbudu, wa-laka nuṣallī wa nasjud,
wa ilayka nasʿā wa-naḥfid,
narjū raḥmataka wa-nakhshā ʿadhābak,
inna ʿadhābaka al-jidda bi al-kuffāri mulḥiq.
wa-ṣallā Allāhu ʿalá Sayyidinā Muḥammadini al-nabīyi al-ummī
wa ʿalá ālihī wa ṣaḥbihī wa-sallam.

O Allāh! Truly we seek Your help and Your guidance. We ask for Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance. We believe in You and place our trust in You. We praise You with every good praise. We thank You, and we do not reject You. We cast out and abandon anyone who disobeys You. O Allāh, You alone do we worship, and for Your sake alone do we pray and prostrate ourselves. To You alone do we earnestly strive and hasten. We hope for Your mercy and fear Your punishment. Truly Your true punishment will be meted out to the rejecters. May Allāh send blessings and peace upon our master Muḥammad, the unlettered prophet, and upon his family and companions.
