Question: How should one make musafaha (shake hands) when meeting people?

Answer: It is sunnah to make Musafahah using both hands. It has been narrated that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam made Musafahah with Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood RA while the palm of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood RA was between the two palms of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam.[Sahih al-Bukhari]

And Allah Knows Best
