Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq

Respected brother,

If someone praying witr forgets the Qunut and then remembers it while bowing, or

after having risen up from it, then he neither recites it in the ruku nor

returns to the original standing position in order to do so. Rather, he completes

the prayer and performs the Sujud-al-sahw for having missed a mandatory

requisite of the prayer(recitation of the qunut)

If however one utters the Qunut after raising his head from ruku,he is not to

repeat the ruku ,but must perform the sujud al-sahw for moving the qunut from

its original position and delaying a necessary action.
