The Ruling on raising the Hands in Supplication during the Friday Khutbah
Question:

What is the ruling on raising the hands for the worshipers when saying Aameen during the supplication of the Imam in the Friday Khutbah? And what is the ruling on raising the voice when saying Aameen?
Answer:

It is not prescribed for the Imam or the worshippers to raise their hands during the Friday Khutbah, because the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) did not do so, and neither did his righteous successors, may Allaah be pleased with them. But if the Imam is calling for rain in the Friday Khutbah, it is prescribed for him and the worshippers to raise their hands, because when the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed for rain, he raised his hands and the people raised their hands. And Allaah, the Most Glorified says: Indeed, in the Messenger of Allaah (Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam)) you have a good example to follow. [1] As for saying Aameen to the Imams supplication during the Khutbah, I know of no objection to it, as long as the voice is not raised. And through Allaah is attainted success.

[1] Al-Ahzab 33:21
