Raisingg and folding the arms

4 years 7 months ago #57 by Imam Rassi Society
What is the evidence in Zaydi fiqh not to fold hands in salaah and only raise hands in the first takbir? What is the evidence from Zaydi books?
as salaamu alaykum!

Thank you for your question!

You can find an article we wrote here about the issue of crossing the hands in prayer.--> www.scribd.com/doc/37427102/Lizard-Hole

We also have an explicit report from our imams in which the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny, was reported to have said ((Do not cross the right hand over the left or the left hand over the right. Lay them straight)).

As for the issue of raising the hands only in the beginning, those Zaidis who do so use as their support a report narrated in the Majmu' Imam Zayd (as) in which it is said that Imam Ali (as) used to raise his hands in the beginning of the prayer and not in any other point.

And Allah knows best!
