The Prophet Du’a’ when addressing Allah

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), raising his hands when addressing Allah with a prayer (du’a’), did not lower them until he wiped his face with them.”

Da’if (weak hadith). He is brought by at-Tirmidhi (2/244) and Ibn ‘Asakir (7/12/2) through Hammad ibn’ Isu al-Juhani, from Khanzalah ibn Abi Sufyan al-Jamkhi, from Salim ibn Abdullah, from his father, from ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab, who said …At-Tirmidhi, after citing this hadith, gave the following commentary:
“This is a reliable (sahih) lonely (Garib) hadith.The word “Garib” is an adjective and translates as “lonely” or “far from his relatives.” As a term, the word “Garib” is used to designate a hadith transmitted from the words of a single transmitter (p. 23. – Approx. Transl.).We only know about this hadith as narrated from the words of Hammad ibn ‘Isa, since he is the only one from whom this hadith is reported; he reported few hadiths, but people transmitted them from him. ”

However, this hadith transmitter is weak, as pointed out by Ibn Hajar, who in his work “Tahzib” reported the following about it:
“Ibn Ma’in said:” Good Shaikh “;

If Ibn Ma’in speaks positively about the transmitter (hadith), while other scholars declare him weak, then Ibn Ma’in’s statement is not accepted because he was known for his severity and severity in criticism: weak transmitters (hadith) did everything precautions so as not to reveal their weakness in front of him; therefore he made appropriate judgments. This explains why he is the only one who called this transmitter reliable.

Abu Hatim said: “Weak in hadith”; Abu Dawud said: “Weak one, narrates the hadiths“ Munkar ”; al-Hakim and Nakkash said: “He transmits fictional hadiths from Ibn Jurayj and Ja’far al-Sadiq.” He was called a weak (transmitter) ad-Darakutni.

Ibn Hibban said: “He communicates things that have an opposite meaning from Ibn Jurayj and ‘Abdul’ Aziz ibn ‘Umar ibn Abdul ‘Aziz so that those who are experts in this area (i.e. in the science of hadith) believe that he did it on purpose; you cannot refer to it as evidence (of anything). ”

Thus, this hadith transmitter is very weak, so hadiths from it cannot be elevated to the level of good (hadith), let alone the level of authentic (hadith)!

The following hadith is similar (to the previous one):
“When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) addressed Allah with a prayer (du’a’) and raised his hands, he would usually run his hands over his face.”
Da’if (weak hadith). It is given by Abu Daud (1492) from Ibn Lahi’a, from Hafs ibn Hisham ibn ‘Utba ibn Abi Waqqas, from Sa’ib ibn Yazid, from his father. The chain of this hadith is weak because of Hafs ibn Hisham, because he is unknown, and also because of the weakness of Ibn Lahi’a (cf. Takrib at-Tahzib).
This hadith cannot be supported by two ways of transmission due to a serious weakness in the first way of transmission.
