Method of ascending the mimbar?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is there a sunnah or recommended method of ascending the mimbar? Because I see some people ascend each step with their right foot and then turn around on the last step, while others walk up with both left and right feet, and still others walk up backwards. So has the `ulama mentioned anything in this regard?


A: We have not come across any Hadith in this regard.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
