SHAKING HANDS WHILE GREETING

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Al-Bara’ ibn ‘Azib, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: The Messenger of Allah, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

مَا مِنْ مُسْلِمَيْنِ يَلْتَقِيَانِ فَيَتَصَافَحَانِ إِلَّا غُفِرَ لَهُمَا قَبْلَ أَنْ يَفْتَرِقَا

No two Muslims meet each other and shake hands but that Allah forgives them before they part.

Anas ibn Malik, RadhiAllahu Anhu, said:

كَانَ أَصْحَابُ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا تَلاقَوْا تَصَافَحُوا وَإِذَا قَدِمُوا مِنْ سَفَرٍ تَعَانَقُوا

If the companions of the Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, met each other, they would shake hands. If they had returned from a journey, they would embrace each other.

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

إِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنَ إِذَا لَقِيَ الْمُؤْمِنَ فَسَلَّمَ عَلَيْهِ وَأَخَذَ بِيَدِهِ فَصَافَحَهُ تَنَاثَرَتْ خَطَايَاهُمَا كَمَا يَتَنَاثَرُ وَرَقُ الشَّجَرِ

Verily, when the believer meets another believer, greets him with peace, and shakes his hand, the sins of them both will shed like leaves falling from a tree.

Verily, when the Muslim shakes hands with his brother, both of their sins fall away like the falling of leaves from a tree.
