Is it allowed to raise hands for dua after fardh salaah? Did Prophet (SAW) ever do this?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I read a hadith extracted from ‘majma-uz-Zawaaid’ vol.1, pg. 169, narrated by Abdullaah Ibn Zubayr radhi Allaahu ‘anhu. Please let me know what is shari’ah’s ruling?

Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuhu

Making Du’a after Salaat is established in the Hadith. Since it is
established to make Du’a, it can be made collectively or individually. Both
are permissible. However, to regard it as necessary or compulsory is
incorrect. To lift up the hands during Du’aa, to pass the hands over the
face after Du’aa is also established from Hadith. (Durrul Munthoor, Sharah
Abu Dawud)
