Raising the hands in dua after the Iqamah


Q: After the Iqamah was made, I noticed someone raise their hands to make dua. Is this okay?

A:Yes. When the Adhan is called, the listener repeats in the prescribed manner then utters the well known supplication and can make dua until the Iqamah. They then repeat it in the prescribed manner and make dua as mentioned by Imam Ibn Najjar in Muntaha. Imam al-Buhuti explains saying, Imam Ahmad did so and would raise his hands.
