Q: I am a respected young man in the community where I live. All thanks is due to Allah. After I finished studying in the local school here in Senegal, I started to call people to Allah (Exalted be He) and educate them. People welcomed this and accepted my calling them to belief in pure Tawhid (belief in the Oneness of Allah). They started to act upon the Qur'an and Sunnah being the two basic sources of religious knowledge after they used to neglect them. However, soon they reverted to their previous state when they noticed me praying with my right hand on the left upon my chest. They thought that I am initiating an innovation in the religion of Islam. I tried by all means to convince them that this is an act of the Sunnah. I even cited religious evidence to confirm that it is an act of the Sunnah but they refused to listen to me. Is there any religious evidence indicating that Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) prayed with his hands down? Shall I be serving the call if I pray with my hands down like them to call them to pure Tawhid or I should continue praying with my right hand on the left one upon my chest and not caring whether they accept Tawhid and listen to me or not? I need your advice on this for I feel very confused. May Allah reward you best!
