Looking up in Salaah


  • What’s correct is that it’s exiting from the state of Salaah, a good-looking state.
  • It’s a type of turning away from the Qiblah as Qaadhi ‘Iyyaadh said.
  • It’s haraam due to the punishment mentioned for it.
  • The Qiblah of Salaah is the Qiblah of Du’aa, he calls Allaah and raises his hands and faces the Qiblah, not by looking up.
  • Raising the hands to the sky is a default affair which establishes in it the highness of Allaah.
