Is it correct to touch the earlobes at the start of prayer(salat/namaz) while saying takir tahrima?

La ilaha illa LAAHu wahadahu la sharika lahu lahul mulko wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ‘ala kulli shai’in qadeer

(There is no God but ALLAAH, one and only, having no partners to Him and to Him belongs the dominion and to Him is the absolute Praise and He has overall things full Control )

NO, But what is the evidence for this


Raising Hands up-to the shoulders :

Narrated `Abdullah bin `Umar:

I saw that whenever Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) stood for the prayer, he used to raise both his hands up to the shoulders, and used to do the same on saying the Takbir for bowing and on raising his head from it and used to say, “Sami`a l-lahu liman hamidah”. But he did not do that (i.e. raising his hands) in prostrations.

Sahih al-Bukhari 736


Raising Hands up-to the earlobes :

Malik b. Huwairith reported:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) raised his hands apposite his ears at the time of reciting the takbir (i. e. at the time of beginning the prayer) and then again raised his hands apposite the ears at the time of bowing and when he lifted his head after bowing he said: Allah listened to him who praised Him, and did like it (raised his hands up to the ears).

Sahih Muslim 391 b

There is no hadith which proves to touch the earlobes when the hands are raised while reciting takbir tahrima but hanafis took out this based on ijtihad(consensus)  as the website of hanafi website


ALL Praise is to ALLAAH alone

ALLAAH knows best
