Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh So this morning I received a question someone had asked me chef, could you please

00:00:10--> 00:00:50

tell us how to place our hands when making dua. So inshallah This video is going to be a response to that question. We have a hadith that has been recorded in the Book of Imam Abu Dawood Rahim Allah where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, either Sal to Mullah first Alou who be Batoon acoustic as well as aloo, who will have already half so the prophets are lightly salams report we have said either as an ultra Mullah. When you ask Allah for Allah who will be Bhutan, in a cafe come ask him with the inner part of your hands. In other words, your palms, well as Allah will be the holy who do not ask him from the outer part of your handle using the outer part

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

of your hands.

00:00:52--> 00:01:10

So this is generally understood, like when you go when when you have someone asking for something, this is how you would ask someone. So based on this hadith, and there are other Hadith as well, as you will see in just a bit in sha Allah, there are scholars who have gone on to outline at least four ways to make dua

00:01:11--> 00:01:44

so inshallah Allah, I'm going to quickly outline the four methods of the four ways. So method number one is to place your hands in such a way where your palms are in the direction of your face, and also towards the heavens. So that is the default position this way. So you make dua, your palms, and you look towards your hands when you make your DUA like this, and your palms are facing, or rather in the direction of your face and also towards the heavens, this is number one, number two,

00:01:45--> 00:02:04

your palms i in the direction of your face, but the edges of your fingers are facing the heavens. And this is like this, you make dua like this. So basically, your palms in the direction of your face, and the fingers are facing towards the heavens.

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

Number three,

00:02:08--> 00:02:49

now, your hands are no longer close to you like this. They are raised. And this many brothers and sisters, you must make note that you do not do this in Salah, because when you raise your hands, you're looking up towards the heavens. And this particular way of making dua is when one is in a lot of fear, anxiety to a very difficult situation. And this we learn through the teachings of the Prophet, the practice of the Prophet himself, it was on the day of better it was a very difficult situation and the Prophet was earnestly making dua I hope the video can capture your your his hands were raised, okay. And again, palms facing up towards the heavens. And he was asking Allah He was

00:02:49--> 00:03:31

making dua to Allah, Allah Houma. And he was, you know, fervently making dua to the extent that the Hadith states had the Sakata read the Wuhan monkey Bay, his cloak, the cloak that he was wearing, because his hands were outstretched like this fell off his shoulders SubhanAllah. So this is at a time when one is in a lot of fear, a lot of anxiety. In a very difficult situation, you earnestly make dua where you raise your hands like this, with your palms facing the heavens, and you're making dua and why you want should not do this in Salah is because in Salah you're not supposed to look up to the heavens as per the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so

00:03:32--> 00:04:00

the one would not raise his or her hands like this. When I say solar, I'm specifically talking about keynote in Keynote when you're making dua, and now we have number four. And this way of making sure again, hands are raised, but now palms are not facing towards the heavens, but instead, hands are like this. So it's the outer part of the hands that are facing towards the heavens. Now you might be wondering, but we just

00:04:01--> 00:04:10

discussed a hadith recorded in the Book of Imam Abu Dawood Rahim Allah the Prophet says do not make Do I like that. This particular way of making dua

00:04:11--> 00:04:59

is specific to solitude is the spa. Now what is solid rest is for those of you who may not be aware, salata this, this CA is the prayer where we pray unto Allah seeking rain. So in this prayer, the Prophet himself practice this we have companions reporting that they saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam making dua with his hands outstretched and palms facing down and the outer part of his hands facing the heavens, it is almost as if he was making dua to Allah to you know your Allah let the let it, let it pull, let it rain, you know, like this. So his hands were outstretched, but palms facing downwards. Why is the outer part of the hands? We're facing the

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

heavens and by

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

Dear Brothers and Sisters, again this is only specific to surah. Two is this QA because at all other times the Hadith that I mentioned that the inception at the beginning the Hadith that has been recorded in the imam in the book of Imam Abu Dawood comes into play. That is what we follow where we make dua with the inner part of our hands. We do not make do it like this, we make it like this. The only time we do that with our hands outstretched is in solitude is the spa. And again, we do this because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself made an exception to the general principle that has been established through his words. So I hope I've made it clear with regard to the four

00:05:37--> 00:05:45

ways of making dua, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best and we conclude by praying when Allah open the doors of beneficial knowledge for all of us, me
