Question:

What is the ruling for one who offers salah with forearms and elbows exposed? I heard khilaaf awlaa but then someone said makrooh?

 Answer:

Bismillah

Having your forearms exposed in salah is considered Makruh Tanzihi. (Nurul Idah p.166) Makruh Tanzihi and Khilaf Awla more or less mean the same thing.
