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?

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.
