    *clarification: I meant during athey’yat some move their diner up n down and I was taught to raise finger during the shahadat only. Saw a pgm where Tirmazi and other books were quoted that finger ought to be moved up n down during athey’yat till Darood sharif. Is tht the correct way?

    The Prophet (sws) would sit in qadah in just the same way as in jalsah by spreading the left foot and sitting on it. The right foot would be upright and he would spread his right hand on the right knee and the left one on the left knee and would raise his pointing finger [36]. He would do this by coiling all the other fingers and placing his thumb on the centre finger and sometimes would make a circle with both of them [37].

    (قعدے میں بالکل اُسی طرح بیٹھتے، جس طرح جلسے میں الٹا پیر بچھا کر اُس پر بیٹھتے تھے۔ سیدھا پاؤں کھڑا ہوتا، دایاں ہاتھ پھیلاکر دائیں گھٹنے پر اور بایاں ہاتھ بائیں گھٹنے) پر رکھ لیتے اور انگوٹھے کے ساتھ والی انگلی سے اشارہ کرتے تھے۔ اِس کی صورت یہ ہوتی تھی کہ بیٹھنے کے بعد باقی انگلیاں سمیٹ لیتے ، انگوٹھا درمیا ن کی انگلی پر (رکھتے اور کبھی کبھی اِن دونوں سے حلقہ بنا لیتے تھے۔ )

    [36]. Muslim, Al-Jami al-sahih, 235, (no. 1307); Abu Daud, Sunan, vol. 1, 192-193, (no. 734).

    What was the reason for this gesture? Since the Prophet (sws) has not offered any explanation for this, hence, in all probability, it was some specific ritual for him which he did not intend to initiate as a Sunnah.
