Shaking hands

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “There are no two Muslims who meet and shake hands with one another, but they will be forgiven before they part.”

[Sunan Abu Dawood (5212); classed as Sahih by al-Albaani]

Commentary:

We benefit from the above Hadith the virtues of shaking hands with your fellow Muslim brother.

Imam Al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy upon him) said: “Shaking hands when meeting is a Sunnah on which there is consensus.”

And Allah knows best!
