Qunut Dua Behind Hanafi Imam


Assalamu Alaikum dear scholars of eshayk

İ have a question regarding the qunut prayer in fajr for a Shafi follower when he is praying behind an Hanafi imam. After the second rakat when you come from the ruku and you are supposed the read the qunut dua but the Hanafi imam goes down to prostration. Are we allowed to read the qunut dua or are we to follow the imam.

JazakAllahu ahsan jaza


wa `alaykum salam,
You are not allowed in this case to read qunoot as you are supposed to follow the imam based on this hadeeth:
“The imam has only be appointed to be followed, so do not differ from him.”
