Raising one’s hands for takbeer-e-tahreemah before the imaam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is it permissible to just put my hands in the position next to my ears just before the imaam says takbeer-e-tahreema in preparation or will this be counted as سبقت علي الامام?


A: You rather raise your hands after the imaam has raised his hands.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
