hand shaking in Islam

It’s so funny that someone thinks the chest-touching after hand shaking is “purely cultural” and only in “North Africa”. Indonesians do that as well, and Indonesia is nowhere near North Africa.

Wa laikomsalam wr wb..


The following only mentions how hand-shaking is sunnah, but nothing about the chest part.









Is it permissible for men to kiss each other in the cheeks like most Arabs and Mediterranean people do?








Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.


It is disliked for men to kiss each other in the face, except for someone who comes back from a journey or the like, then it is permissible if this kissing does not result in an affliction and provided the kissing is not as with desire; that is absolutely forbidden.
