taqleed_ilmQuestion: 1) What do the ‘Ulema of Deen and the Muftis say about a man in our city of Baruch who has adopted the ways of the Ahl e Hadith. He raises his hands during every Raka’ah of Salah and says Ameen loudly. Our Hanafi brothers say that these are acts of Bid’ah. Is raising the hands and saying Ameen loudly acts of the Sunnah or acts of Bid’ah? Please explain with references.
2) This brother says that raising the hands is a Sunnah of Rasulullah ﷺ and the Khulafaa Raashideen and that the Hanafi book Hidayah (Vol.1 pg 379) proves that Rasulullah ﷺ did it until the end of his life. He also says that saying Ameen loudly is also proven in Hidayah (Vol.1 pg 362) and that both raising the hands and saying Ameen loudly are acts of the Sunnah. Is raising the hands and saying Ameen loudly acts of the Sunnah or acts of Bid’ah? Please explain with references.
