    Title: Where to focus our eyes while takbeer e tehreema

    Question: Where to see while lifting our hands towards the ears at the start of salah? Whether to see on the place of sajdah or to keep our eyes straight towards Qiblah? And what about those people who keep their eyes straight while lifting their hand?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    It is mustahab to keep eyes at the place of sajdah while in qiyam and takbir tahrimah is said in the state of qiyam thus at that time too the eyes should be on the place of sajdah.
