Raising Hands for Dua after the Adhan – Permanent Committee
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
It is legistlated after the adhaan and after responding to the muadhin and (then after) sending peace and blessings upon the Prophet -May Allah’s Peace be Upon Him- that he says what is reported from the Prophet
“اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ، وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ، آتِ مُحَمَّداً الْوَسِيلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ، وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَاماً مَحْمُوداً الَّذِي وَعَدْتَهُ،1
Because that is affirmed from the prophet -May Allah’s Peace be Upon Him- from the hadith of Jaabir bin Abdillah al-Ansaari-May Allah be pleased with him- in Sahih Al-Bukhaari, and that is without raising of the hands, because that is not reported in this place, so it is considered an innovation to do it.
