Islamic Apps World presents Qunut/Qunoot literally means “being obedient” or “the act of standing” in Classical Arabic. The word is usually used in reference to special supplications made in certain prayers while in the standing posture.
“O Allah! Guide me with those whom You have Guided, and strengthen me with those whom You have given strength, take me to Your care with those whom You have taken to Your care, Bless me in what You have given me, Protect me from the evil You have Ordained. Surely You Command and are not commanded, and none whom You have committed to Your care shall be humiliated [and none whom You have Taken as an enemy shall taste glory]. You are Blessed, our Lord, and Exalted.”
