Question:
Sometimes we see some people who while talking about the greatness of Allah, point their fingers or/and look towards the sky as if Allah is there! Is this prohibited or allowed? What are the limitations?

Answer:
Certainly, Allah is present everywhere we can imagine, and if somebody points at somewhere and means that Allah is limited to that certain place, he has done something wrong. But as a symbolic act to represent the greatness of Him, people raise their hands towards the sky. What they do is only as a token of Allah's dominance over the world. In some narrations this act is mentioned such as when we raise our hands in supplication (Qunut) in our prayers.
