The definition of Musafaha is to shake hands
Shake hands with both of your hands.
Since Musafaha is a Sunnah, you should shake
hands every time you meet.
When two Muslim men or two Muslim women
meet, they should say salaam first, and then
Shake hands again when you are leaving.
Most people only shake hands with one hand
and with only the fingers touching. This is
against the Sunnah.
Your hands should be empty when shaking
hands and your palms should touch the other
While you are shaking hands, you should
smile and be happy. If possible, read Durood
shareef and if you can, read this dua:
lanaa walakum) 'Allah forgive us and you.'
may grant us courage to follow the Sunnah .
