Commentary(Noor al-Quran), Vol12, Page: 262


Here are two more commentaries on the above verse:

1. The implied meaning of the phrase/ wanhar/ is 'facing Qiblan( the direction of the Ka'ba )when saying a prayer', because the word/ nahr/ originally means 'throat' then, it has been used with the meaning of 'standing in front of anything'.

. The purpose involved, here, is the 'raising of the hands up to the throat and face'. A tradition says that when this Sura was revealed, the holy Prophet( p. b. u. h. )asked Gabriel: What is this/ nuhayrah/ that my Lord has commissioned me to do

Gabriel said: This is not/ nuhayrah/. Allah has, however, commanded you to raise your hands at the beginning of prayer when you say/ allahu akbar/ and when you are going to perform bowing or prostration and after that, because our prayer and that of the angels, in the seven heavens, are like this. Everything has an adornment and the adornment of prayer is raising the hands at the time of saying/ allahu akbar/.­ 1‑

There is another tradition from Imam Sadiq( p. b. u. h. )who, on the commentary of this verse, indicating with his holy hands, said: The purpose is that you raise your hands so that your palms be towards Qiblah( the direction of the Ka'ba )­ 2‑

There is no problem in combining all these meanings, in particular, there are many Islamic narrations about raising the hands at the time of saying/ allahu akbar/. Thus, the verse has such a vast meaning that it covers all of them
