As in the Craft, the thumb is hidden when you are called to prayer. As well as being another area where it was decided to make a difference between the Craft and the RA, it is thought that both thumbs are hidden when making the Reverential or Hailing Sign as a mark of reverence before the Name. Despite the name, it is not a sign in the Craft sense; no step is taken when giving it, and it is dropped, not discharged.
