shaking hands

i started to think bout this last 3 years. when i met with this one vip then he just gv me half of his hand when hand shaking with me. but then when i meet another vip, he grab my hand and realy have the hand shaking. feels like someone realy appriciate you.

back to basic, hand shaking is a general greeting. it also the first impression if you first meet with some one. if some one grab our hand tight and shakeit hard, we may say he is an active person, when some one shake his hand but not realy look our face, we may say he is an arrogant person. but for me.the best hand shake ever is a soft grab and a gently shake with smile in our face.

how bout shaking hands with opposite sex? its ok if we are confident that it wont lead to any type of zina such as with old women or some other special conditions.This is based on what has been narrated on the authority of Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with him) that he used to shake hands with old women and also

“As for women past child bearing, who have no hope of marriage, it is no sin for them if they discard their (outer) clothing in such a way as not to show adornment. But to refrain is better for them. Allah is Hearer, Knower.” (An-Nur: 60)

but its not a green light for you to hold your non-mahram soulmate hand. because the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, "I do not shake hands with women" (Al-Bukhari)
