Putting the hands on the chest after shaking hands


 

Q: Is it haram to put your hand on your chest after shaking hands?

A: This is not a Sunnah practise.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها ، قالت : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : من أحدث في أمرنا هذا ما ليس منه فهو رد (مشكاة # 140)

كل بدعة ضلالة و كل ضلالة في النار (الجامع الصغير1/100)
