Is there a significance of human hands? Is there anything in the Qur’an or Hadith about the person’s hands and how they might be used as a sign of God? I know for one that on the palms we see the apparent numbers of 81and 18, totaling 99 which is as many names as Allah has! I ask this because of a Jewish Doctor who was interested in what Islam has to say about hands (he says, to him, in Judaism hands relate to the two tablets that the ten commandments were written on, and how the right hand extends from God and the left extends from man or something like that). Thank you and Allah bless you!
Asalamwlykum, I have a question reguarding when making intention, or niyat. Is it necessary to rais your hands as if making duwah and then say it or can you make it in your heart as you are begging to wash your hands or make wudu for instance. I would be very glad if you could answer this question for it has been bugging me for many months now. Asalamwlykum.
As Salaamu Alaikum, I have several questions regarding salat, Insha'Allah you'll be able to help. 1-Is it bidah to raise the hands to shoulders length (palms turned up) and supplicate to Allah? Please give hadith or other proof. 2-I've seen Muslims rise, coming out of ruku and place the right hand over their left, then takbir and go into prostration. Isn't that bidah? I was always taught to relax the limbs when coming out of ruku. 3-All the masajids I've been to when the Imam takbir, all the followers also takbir aloud. Although recently I've seen a leader of salat takbir but no one in the ranks takbir aloud but me, and I was told thats bidah. Is it bidah? Please give proof.

Assalam-o- Alaikum dear brother, i wish to ask a question that has been bothering me. i'm a medical graduate, i'm hoping to go Insh' Allah for medical post graduate training in usa soon.i have to deal with females, in the medical profession as patients and as collegues. how do i deal with them, sometimes in the western culture women shake hands with men, it's not something i would like to do . but when i go for interviews for a job, or deal with patients what should i do? how should i deal with them and to what extent is it allowed to have contact? this is a situation as the job interviews and performance may be heavily judged on my interpersonal dealings with collegues but more so i believe patients. i don't want to ever go away from perfect islamic teachings. what should i do? andi still want to learn ,that too for the sake of serving Almighty AllahGazak ' Allah khair
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. In Prayer, when you prostrate, should you place your hands on the ground first or knees first? Can you bring me evidence from the Qur'an and Sunnah and also the relative strengths and weaknesses of each argument? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Scholars of Islam, As-Salaam `Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh. I’d like to know where to place my hands while standing in Prayer, for I see people hold different positions in this regard. Jazakum Allah Khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I have a problem that undoubtedly many others face. It is shaking hands with women, especially relatives who are not mahram to me, such as my cousins, wives of uncles, or sisters-in-law. Many pious Muslims face this problem, particularly on certain occasions such as coming back from travel, recovering from an illness, returning from Hajj or `Umrah, or similar occasions when relatives, in-laws, neighbors, and colleagues usually visit, congratulate each other and shake hands with each other.What I am asking is, is it proven in the Glorious Qur’an or the Sunnah that shaking hands with women is totally prohibited within the social and family relations when there is trust and no fear of temptation? I would appreciate if you would answer my question in the light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Wajazakum Allah Khairan.
