The individual is asking is it necessary for a person praying with an imaam if the imaam raises his hands for supplication

Q.​The individual is asking is it necessary for a person praying with an imaam if the imaam raises his hands for supplication, should the person likewise raise his hands in supplication?

A. ​The shaykh said if it’s during the jumu’ah khutbah (sermon) a person should not raise their hands. If the imaaam raises his hands the person should not raise their hands. However, if it is in prayer and the imaam is performing qunoot then it is permissible for the person to raise their hands.
The reason why a person should not raise their hands during the jumu’ah is
because the Prophet Sallaahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned a severe admonition for the people that move during the salaat, meaning during the khutbah. The only thing that is permissible for a person to do whilst the imaam is giving the khutbah (sermon) is if the imaam is making supplication the people should say aameen. But raising their hands they shouldn’t do because the Prophet Sallaahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that the person that moves during the khutbah, this individual has committed a sin. The individual has committed a sin. The brother Mustafa George (Hafidahullaah) then asked the shaykh… what about if the imaam raises his hands for seeking rain during the jumu’ah khutbah? The sheikh said if the imaam raises his hands for seeking rain then it becomes permissible for you to also raise your hands in seeking rain.

From the Best times to make Dua

Surah al-Fatihah

The Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said that Allah the Exalted had said:
‘ I have divided the prayer into two halves between Me and My servant, and My servant will receive what he asks for. When the servant says: Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the universe, Allah the Most High says: My servant has praised Me. And when he (the servant) says: The Most Compassionate, the Merciful, Allah the Most High says: My servant has lauded Me. When he (the servant) says: Master of the Day of Judgment, He remarks: My servant has glorified Me, and sometimes He will say: My servant entrusted (his affairs) to Me. When he (the worshipper) says: Thee do we worship and of Thee do we ask help, He (Allah) says: This is between Me and My servant, and My servant will receive what he asks for. Then, when he (the worshipper) says: Guide us to the straight path, the path of those to whom Thou hast been Gracious — not of those who have incurred Thy displeasure, nor of those who have gone astray, He (Allah) says: This is for My servant, and My servant will receive what he asks for.
[Muslim 4: 395]

“the wealthy have attained exclusively the high ranks and eternal blessing (in Paradise). He said:….”

Muslim (596) narrated from Ka‘b ibn ‘Ujrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Dhikrs at the end of the prayer, the one who says them or does them at the end of each obligatory prayer will not be disappointed: thirty-three tasbeehahs, thirty-three tahmeedahs and thirty-four takbeerahs.”

Al-Bukhaari (6329) from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him): They said: O Messenger of Allah, the wealthy have attained exclusively the high ranks and eternal blessing (in Paradise). He said: How is that? They said: They pray as we pray, and they strive in jihad as we strive, and they spend from the surplus of their wealth, but we have no wealth. He said: “Shall I not tell you of something by means of which you will catch up with those who have gone before you and will go ahead of those who come after you, and no one could achieve what you achieve except one who does what you do. At the end of every prayer, glorify Allah (by saying Subhaan Allah) ten times, and praise Him (by saying al-hamdu Lillah) ten times, and magnify Him (by saying Allahu akbar) ten times.
