    Men and women should not shake hands outside the mahram ties.
    Hadith - Recorded by Malik, Ahmad, al-Nasai, al-Tirmidhi and ibn Majah.
    [Al-Albani has graded it sahih. Al-Albani, Sahih al-Jami, vol. 1, p. 494.]
    The Prophet (saw) said, "I do not shake the hands of women."


    Hadith - Bukhari 9:321 (& 7:211)
    The Prophet (saw) used to take the Pledge of allegiance from the women by words only after reciting this Holy Verse: (60.12) "..that they will not associate anything in worship with Allah." (60.12) And the hand of Allah's Apostle did not touch any woman's hand except the hand of that woman his right hand possessed. (i.e. his captives or his lady slaves).


    Hadith - Sahih Muslim, narrated 'A'isha (ra)
    By Allah, the hand of the Messenger of Allah (saw) never touched the hand of a woman. By Allah, the Messenger of Allah (saw) never took any vow from women except that which Allah had ordered him to take, and his palm never touched the palm of a woman. When he had taken their vow, he would tell that he had taken the oath from them orally.

    What are you meant to do if you are in a position where you meet someone new or go for an interview & they extend their hand, as not to appear rude??

    i have 6 foster brothers whom ive stayed with when my late foster parents adopted me when i was 12 yrs. Athough they r muslim i guess they didnt have religious knowledge, so do I.:( .Every year during the muslim festive holidays,, i end up "salam" my foster parents n 4 elder brothers n my foster sister,this continues till i at last was shown the path n attended religous knowledge class last year.This Eid,I visited my eldest brother home to pay respect,, n didnt do the physical "salam" with him but did "salam" all the female present.My foster brother"s son wanted to "salam" me but told him ,, now we cant salam cos our "wudhu" will be void, altho he consider me his aunty. I told my edest brother wife about my not "salam" my brothers n she remarked..its OK.. cos they r ur brothers...but i highlight to her,, we r not blood brother/sister,, so muslim law we r not mahram,, she says i shudnt be too strict in my practice..i hope n pray Allah swt will guide all my brothers n their families to see the light,:inshallah:It is sad indeed we have lots of muslim here who dont really adhere to the teaching of Quran n sunnah of prophet Muhammad saw.If i happen to meet my non-muslim former male colleagues,,i guess they will not be stretching out their hand for a handshake,, like we used to do,,, cos of my "hijab",Alhamduillah i no longer work so dont have anymore problem with handshaking with our appreciative customers(used to work in the post office).FYI,, "salam"is an act of kissing the right back hand of older muslim male(only if mahram) or female.. guess its like some people who do cheek to cheek like the arabs/french eh! :wasalam:
