Q 2: What is the ruling
on kissing the hand of the father out of respect and gratitude
without any other intention? What is the ruling on giving the father the title of (master) out of respect?
If a person kisses the hand of another person out of honor or because of his knowledge and fatherhood without taking it as a habit at every meeting, there will be nothing wrong with that. (Part No. 26; Page No. 349) If it is repeated every time they meet each other, it will be Makruh (disliked).It is Makruh to give the title of (master) to the father because
when some Sahabah (Companions) said to the Prophet (peace be upon him), "You are our master," he said, "The Master is Allah."
Furthermore, this may promote arrogance in the person being addressed in this way.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
