Re: placement of hands of our Shafee brothers

Question: In the Hanafi school we place the right hand's palm on the left hand benaeth the navel. As we know our Shafee brothers do the same but above the navel, however i see some of our Shafee brothers placing their right hands palm not on the left hand but merely more almost on their left arm's elbow...

What is their evidence for this? Has the Prophet said to place on the left HAND (in some narrations GRAB the left hand) Why do they place on the arm almost on the elbow?

Answer: This matter is not a big deal. The important thing is to place the right hand on the left.
... and Allah knows best.
