Saying Ameen loudly and making Raful Yadain if one is living in a Hambali environment

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


  1. Can I say Ameen feebly (not bil jahar) or is it compulsory as I live in a Hambli environment?
  2. Is doing of rafa ul yadain compulsory? Can one leave it curtesy living in Hambli environment?



  1. If you follow the Hanafi Mazhab, then recite Ameen softly.
  2. If you follow the Hanafi Mazhab, then you should not practise Raful Yadain during the Salaah.

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