According to sahih hadith like this one:

Narrated Tawus:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to place his right hand on his left hand, then he folded them strictly on his chest in prayer.

Grade : Sahih (Al-Albani)

Sunan Abi Dawud, In-book reference (Kitab Al-Salat): Book 2, Hadith 369

Hands will be on the chest.


I put my hands ( the right hand above the left hand) above my diaphragm between your chest, right above your upper two abdominal muscles.

That was narrated from ‘Ali, Abu Hurayrah, al-Nakha’i, Abu Majlaz, Sa’eed ibn Jubayr, al-Thawri, al-Shaafa’i and ashaab al-ra’i. It was also narrated by Ibn al-Mundhir from Maalik.
