Method of Takbeer-e-Tahreemah

Question:

What is the correct way of doing takbeer tahreemah?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Takbeer-e-Tahreemah is to say Allahu Akbar at the beginning of Salah.

The method of Takbeer-e-Tahreemah for men is different from the method of women.[1]

Hereunder is the method for men:

After making Niyyah, one should lift his two hands upto his earlobes in such a manner that both palms are facing the Qiblah and the fingers are in a normal condition, neither together nor spread out. Then he should say Allahu Akbar and fold them below the navel.

Herunder is the method for women:

After making Niyyah, she should lift her two hands upto her shoulders in such a manner that both palms are facing Qiblah and the fingers are in a normal condition, neither together nor spread out. Then she should say Allahu Akbar and fold them on the chest.

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
