Where to focus our eyes while takbeer e tehreema

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
Where to see while lifting our hands towards the ears at the start of salah? Whether to see on the place of sajdah or to keep our eyes straight towards Qiblah? And what about those people who keep their eyes straight while lifting their hand?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 311/344/L=04/1440)


It is mustahab to keep eyes at the place of sajdah while in qiyam and takbir tahrimah is said in the state of qiyam thus at that time too the eyes should be on the place of sajdah.
