RE: Pointing finger in Tashahhud

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

When I was looking in internet, I found an Islamic site (Hanafi) that said that we are not point our finger in tashahhud, but you said that we point our finger. Please explain to me.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

I have simply transmitted the relied upon position in the Hanafi school. This is also what the major scholars in Turkey [where that site is based] do.

If that site says not to point, this is a weak position in the Hanafi school and has been thoroughly refuted by its great scholars, such as Mulla Ali al-Qari and Imam Muhammad Amin Ibn Abidin.  [See answers in Related Q&A.]

And Allah alone gives success.
