Making the palms of the hands and the fingers face the direction of the ears when raising the hands in prayer contradicts the sunnah

Imam Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyah-May Allah have mercy upon him-stated in his book ‘Raising the hands in prayer’, pg 281:

‘What is recommended is that his palms face towards the direction of the Qiblah and that he does not make them face towards his ears. Our scholars (the Hanbalis) and the Shafi’is have cleary mentioned this and from those who mentioned this is the author of ‘al Tatimma’.

However, regarding what many of the common people do from making their palms and fingers face their ears, it opposes the sunnah.
