One raises their hands for making Du`a' while the Khatib is delivering the second Khutbah on Friday

A: It is not permissible for a person to raise their hands while reciting the Du`a', while the Friday Khutbah (sermon) is in progression, or during the `Eid (feast) sermon. However, it is permissible to raise one's hands while reciting the Du`a' or the Khutbah of Salat-ul-Istisqa' (Prayer for rain). The Ma'mum (person being led by an Imam in Prayer) is not permitted to raise their hands either during Friday or the Two `Eid Khutbahs. Salat-ul-Istisqa' is an exception where the Imam is permitted to raise his hands while delivering the Friday Khutbah or any other Khutbah. It was authentically reported on the authority of Anas (may Allah be pleased with him): When the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) prayed for rain during the Friday Khutbah (sermon), he raised his hands and the worshipper with him also raised their hands. (Recorded by Al-Bukhari in his Sahih (authentic collection of Hadith).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
