Raising the hands in Dua after Salaah

Q: After the fard prayer, some imams make dua in congregation while some do not. Some people say it is bida to raise the hands after fard prayer in congregation. But according to a hadith I read, after fard prayer, it is one of the best time to make dua. So, according to Sunnah, what should be done after fard prayer?

A: Making du`aa after the fardh salaah is established through sound proofs. Raising the hands is optional.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
