Raising The Hands In Salah (Raf al-Yadayn)

 

Alqamah رحمة اللہ علیه reports that Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud رضي الله عنه said, ‘Should I not lead you in salâh in the manner of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم?’ He then prayed and did not raise his hands except in the beginning. [91]

The above hadeeth has also been reported by Imam Nasai رحمة اللہ علیه with the following wording: ‘Should I not inform you of the salâh of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم?’ He then stood up and raised his hands once in the beginning. He did not raise them again. [92]

Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud رضي الله عنه reports that Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم would raise his hands at the time of the first takbeer and not raise them again. [93]

Sayyiduna Baraa Ibn ‘Azib رضي الله عنه relates that when Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم would begin salâh he would raise his hands close to his ears and then not raise them again. [94]

Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Umar رضي الله عنهما narrates that Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم would raise his hands when beginning salâh and then not raise them again. [95]

Abbad رحمة اللہ علیه the son of Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Zubair رضي الله عنه relates that when starting salâh Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم would raise his hands in the beginning and not raise them again at any time until he completed his prayer. [96]

Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud رضي الله عنه says, ‘I prayed behind Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم, Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه, and ‘Umar رضي الله عنه and they did not raise their hands except when beginning salâh.’ [97]

Aswad رحمة اللہ علیه says, ‘I prayed salâh with ‘Umar Ibn al-Khattab رضي الله عنه and he did not raise his hands during any part of salâh except in the beginning.’ Abdul Malik رحمة اللہ علیه (one of the narrators) says, ‘I also observed Sha’bi رحمة اللہ علیه, Ibrahimرحمة اللہ علیه, and Ishaq رحمة اللہ علیه not raising their hands except when beginning their salâh.’ [98]

Ibrahim al Nakhai رحمة اللہ علیه says, ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud رضي الله عنه would not raise his hands in any part of salâh except in the beginning.’ [99]

Aasim Ibn Kulaib رحمة اللہ علیه narrates from his father رحمة اللہ علیه that Sayyiduna Ali رضي الله عنه would raise his hands at the first takbeer of salâh. He would not raise them again after this. [100]

Abu Ishaq رحمة اللہ علیه says, ‘The companions of both ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud رضي الله عنه and ‘Ali رضي الله عنه would not raise their hands except in the beginning of salâh.’ Wakee’ رحمة اللہ علیه adds, ‘And they would not raise them again.’ [101]

Mujahid رحمة اللہ علیه says, ‘I prayed salâh behind Ibn ‘Umar رضي الله عنهما and he would not raise his hands in salâh except at the time of the first takbeer.’ [102]

Abdul Azeez Ibn Hakeem رحمة اللہ علیه says, ‘I saw Ibn ‘Umar رضي الله عنهما, raise his hands to the level of his ears at the time of the first takbeer in the beginning of salâh, and he did not raise them apart from this.’ [103]

Husain Ibn Abdul Rahman رحمة اللہ علیه relates, ‘Amr Ibn Murrah رحمة اللہ علیه and I visited Ibrahim an-Nakha’i رحمة اللہ علیه. Amr رحمة اللہ علیه said, “Alqamah Ibn Wail al Hadhrami رحمة اللہ علیه narrated to me from his father رضي الله عنه that he prayed salâh with Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم. He saw him raise his hands when he said the takbeer, when he bowed into ruku’ and when he rose there from.” Ibrahim رحمة اللہ علیه replied, “I do not know. He may possibly not have seen Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم pray except on that day and thus remembered this of him. (Otherwise) did Ibn Mas’ud رضي الله عنه and his companions not remember this of him? I have not heard it from any one of them. They would only raise their hands in the beginning of salâh when saying the takbeer.”‘ [104]

Sayyiduna Jabir Ibn Samurah رضي الله عنه says, ‘Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم came out to us saying ‘Why is it that I see you raising your hands as though they are the tails of obstinate horses? Remain calm in salâh.’ [105]

Abu Bakr Ibn Ayyash رحمة اللہ علیه says, ‘I have not seen a single faqeeh do it: raise his hands at any time other than the first takbeer.’ [106]

Muhaddith Dhafar Ahmad al Uthmani رحمة اللہ علیه writes,
‘This shows that the raising of the hands when bowing into ruku’ and when rising from it was most likely not practiced widely during the time of the Tabi’un, for Abu Bakr Ibn Ayyash رحمة اللہ علیه was one of the foremost Tab’i Tabieen. Malik رحمة اللہ علیه who was also a prominent Tab’i Tabiee says as is recorded in al Mudawwanah al Kubra, “I do not know of raising the hands in any takbeer of salâh, neither whilst rising or bowing except in the beginning when he should raise his hands slightly.” [107]

Ibn al Qasim رحمة اللہ علیه also says,”Raising the hands was weak in the view of Malik رحمة اللہ علیه except in the beginning of salâh.” This also shows that the raising of the hands was generally not practiced during that time.’ [108]

Imam Nimawi رحمة اللہ علیه says:
‘The Sahâbah رضي الله عنهم and those who came after them differed in this regard. As for the four caliphs رضي الله عنهم, the raising of the hands has not been proven from them except in the first takbeer of tahreemah. And Allâh knows best.’ [109]

After narrating the above hadeeth of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud رضي الله عنه, Imam Tirmidhi رحمة اللہ علیه comments:
‘There is a narration of the same meaning on the authority of Baraa Ibn ‘Azib رضي الله عنه, ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud’s رضي الله عنه hadeeth is hasan, and many of the Rasulullah’s صلى الله عليه وسلم learned companions are of the same view, i.e., the hands should not be raised during salâh except once in the beginning. This is also the view of Sufyan al Thawri رحمة اللہ علیه and the people of Kufah.’

Not raising the hands except in the beginning of salâh was the known practice of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه, Sayyiduna ‘Umar رضي الله عنه, Sayyiduna ‘Ali رضي الله عنه and Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud رضي الله عنه as well as many others from amongst the learned Sahâbah radiallahu anhum as mentioned by Tirmidhi رحمة اللہ علیه above. It has also been reported from Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Umar رضي الله عنهما, and others.

From amongst the Tabi’un it was the known practice of the companions of Sayyiduna ‘Ali radiallahu anhu and Sayyiduna Ibn Mas’ud radiallahu anhu, Aswad Ibn Yazeedرحمة اللہ علیه , Alqamah Ibn Qaisرحمة اللہ علیه , Ibrahim an-Nakha’i رحمة اللہ علیه, Khaithamah رحمة اللہ علیه , Qais Ibn Abi Hazim رحمة اللہ علیه, Aamir ash-Sha’bi رحمة اللہ علیه, Abu Ishaq al-Sabiee رحمة اللہ علیه , Wakee’ رحمة اللہ علیه , Aasim Ibn Kulaib رحمة اللہ علیه , virtually all of the fuqahah and people of Kufah, and many in other cities (رحمة الله عليهم). [10]

It is also the view and practice of Mughirah رحمة اللہ علیه , Hasan Ibn Salih رحمة اللہ علیه , Sufyan al Thawri رحمة اللہ علیه , Hasan Ibn Hayy رحمة اللہ علیه , Wakee’ رحمة اللہ علیه , Ishaq Ibn Abi Israeel رحمة اللہ علیه , Imam Abu Hanifah رحمة اللہ علیه , Imam Malik رحمة اللہ علیه , Imam Abu Yusuf رحمة اللہ علیه , Imam Muhammad رحمة اللہ علیه their followers (رحمة الله عليهم).
