“When you call to Allah, then call out with the palms of your hands and do not call them with the back of your hands, and when you finish (the prayer), run them over your face.”

Da’if (weak hadith). He is quoted by Ibn Majah (1181, 3866), Ibn Nasr in Qiyam al-Layl (p. 137), at-Tabarani in al-Mu’jam al-Kya-bir (3/98/1) and al -Hakim (1/536) from Salih ibn Hassan, from Muhammad ibn Ka’b, from Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) in the form of “Martha”.



The chain of this hadith is weak because of Ibn Hassan, who in the transmission of hadith is “Munkar”, as al-Bukhari pointed out; an-Nasa’i said: “He is not worthy in hadith”;
Ibn Hibban said: “He kept singers, listened to music and transmitted fictional hadiths on behalf of reliable transmitters”; Ibn Abi Hatim said in Kitab al-‘Ilal (2/351): “I asked my father (ie Abu Hatim ar-Razi) about this hadith, to which he replied:“ Munkar ”.

Ibn Hassan is reinforced by ‘Isa ibn Maymun, who also narrated this hadith from Muhammad ibn Ka’b, as reported by Ibn Nasr. However, this does not change anything, since Ibn Maymun is also a weak (transmitter): Ibn Hibban said about him: “He transmits hadith, each of which is fictional,” al-Nasa’i said: “Unreliable.”

This hadith from Ibn ‘Abbas is also quoted by Abu Daud (1485), and from him – al-Bayhaqi (2/212) through:’ Abdul Malik ibn Muhammad ibn Ayman, from Abdullah ibn Ya’kub ibn Ishaq, from a certain person who told him from Muhammad ibn Ka’b this hadith in the following version:

“Do not cover the walls! He who looks into his brother’s letter without his permission is truly looking into the Fire! Call out to Allah with the palms of your hands and do not call out to Him with the back of (palms), but when you finish (supplication), run them over your face! ”

The chain of this hadith is weak: Abu Dawud called ‘Abdul Malik a weak (transmitter); the chain of this hadith also contains (a certain) Shaikh Abdullah ibn Ya’kub, whose name is not given, and therefore he is unknown – it is possible that this Shaikh was Ibn Hassan or Ibn Maymun, who were mentioned above.

This hadith is also quoted by al-Hakim (4/270) through Muhammad ibn Mu’awiyyu, who said that Masadif ibn Ziyad al-Madini told him that he had heard this hadith from Muhammad ibn Ka’ba al-Kurasi. Az-Dhahabi followed the entire chain of this hadith, indicating that ad-Darakutni called Ibn Mu’awiyyah a liar, therefore this hadith is fictional.

Abu Dawud said about this hadith: “This hadith is transmitted through more than one chain from Muhammad ibn Ka’b, each of which is weak.”
It was established that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) raised his hands during du’a’ al-Qunut, addressing Allah with a prayer to punish the pagans who killed 70 reciters (of the Quran) – Imam Ahmad (3/137) and at-Tabarani in al-Mu’jam as-Sagir (p. 111) this hadith is given from Anas through a reliable chain of transmitters. The raising of hands when pronouncing du’a’ al-kunut during the performance of the al-witr prayer is reliably transmitted from ‘Umar and others (companions).
