Meaning of Kalaamun naas when making dua in Salaah

Q: I am following Hanafi Fiqh.

1. In the current situation of Palestine, I have started reading Qunut e Nazila in Fajr prayer. I restrict myself with the Arabic dua from Quran and Hadith. However, I said one day, allahummansuril mujahideena fi filasteen (in Arabic). Would that be considered as Kalamun nas?

2. Secondly, could you please let me know about the guideline which will be easy for me to understand the Kalamun Nas discussed by the fuqaha. I have heard that if we are making dua in Arabic outside Quran and Hadith, it should not be in the classification of Kalamun Nas. However, this thing did not become clear so that's why I am refering to you.


1. No, this would not be regarded as kalaamun naas.

2. Kalaamun naas refers to mentioning worldly needs in one's dua which a person can ask from people (e.g. O Allah, get me married to Faatimah, or O Allah, make a certain person accept my request and grant me a job, or O Allah, grant me vegetables to eat).

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
