Saying Takbir on Bowing and Raising Hands

Abu hurairah reported, Whenever Allah’s messenger sallallahu alaihi wasalam stood for Solah, he said Takbir on starting the solah and then on bowing. On raising from bowing) he said, “Sami Allahu liman hamidah’ and then while standing straight he used to say Rabbana lakalhamd. (Bukhari)

Raising Hands

Characteristics of Prayer

Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 12 :: Hadith 702

Narrated Salim bin ‘Abdullah:

My father said, “Allah’s Apostle used to raise both his hands up to the level of his shoulders when opening the prayer; and on saying the Takbir for bowing. And on raising his head from bowing he used to do the same and then say “Sami a-l-lahu Liman hamida, Rabbana walaka-l-hamd.” And he did not do that (i.e. raising his hands) in prostrations.

Characteristics of Prayer

Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 12 :: Hadith 703

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:

I saw that whenever Allah’s Apostle stood for the prayer, he used to raise both his hands up to the shoulders, and used to do the same on saying the Takbir for bowing and on raising his head from it and used to say, “Sami a-l-lahu Liman hamida”. But he did not do that (i.e. raising his hands) in prostrations.

To say takbir in between the changes of postures is sunnah.
To raisehands in a few changing of postures is also sunnah but Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasalam raised hands for sayign takbeer in the following act
1. Takbirratul ihram
2. Going for ruku’
3. After ruku’ when we say Sami Allahu liman hamidah
4. The rising of the thrd rakaah after the first tashahud.

And we say Allah Akbar for every change of positions in solah except when rising from ruku’.
