When to stand for prayer: takbir or hayya alas salah?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
(1) When should the muqtadi stand up for prayer, the beginning of takbir or at hayya alas salah? (2) Can namaz be offered with the bottom of trousers folded just to open the ankle? Is it makrooh tahrimi or tanzihi to fold the cloth in salah? (3) If a person regularly comes for prayer but makes some mistakes witch make the namaz makrooh tahrimi or tanzihi should I tell him the correct thing if I am aware? Please answer in the light of hadith and quote the authority of hadith or fiqh.


(Fatwa: 210/157/B=1433)

(1) It is learnt by hadith that one should stand as soon as one sees the imam coming for leading salah. It is mentioned in Bukhari:
لا تقوموا حتى ترونى خرجت .
The holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said do not stand up (for prayer) unless you see me coming out of the room, i.e. one should stand in the beginning of the takbir. If someone could not stand up in the beginning of the takbir then he should at least stand up to Hayya ala al-Salah.
(2) Yes, you can offer salah folding your pajama above the ankles. It is makrooh tahrimi to fold the clothes while in salah.
(3) Yes, surely you should tell it. Whatever correct Islamic information you have you should share it.
