According to many
reliable reports appearing in the most reliable works of Hadīth like Sahīh
of Bukhārī and Sahīh of Muslim the Holy Prophet (sws) used to do
Raf‘u’l-yadayn (raising hands up to one’s shouders) when starting the
prayer, going to Ruku‘, standing from it, and standing after saying
Tashahhud. So I am confused as to why we are not supposed to do
Raf‘u’l-yadayn on other occasion besides starting the prayer when the Holy
Prophet (sws) did?
