Is it wrong to look at the sky and pray? Is it permissbile to open our hands toward the sky when we pray?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

God forbid, a thought like ‘Allah is in the sky’ is not permissible. However, if His elevation, magnitude and mercy coming down from great realms are meant, we hope it will not be objectionable.  As a matter of fact, when we pray, we open our hands toward the sky.
