When two persons meet anywhere to shake hands

Q 2: Is it permissible to shake hands using both hands, or is it a Bid`ah (innovation in religion)? (Part No. 24; Page No. 125

A: It is permissible for a Muslim man to shake hands with his Muslim brother, according to the proofs mentioned concerning this. It is impermissible for a man to shake hands with a non-Mahram woman (not a spouse or an unmarriageable relative). As for shaking hands using both hands, this is groundless, but it is more appropriate to be with one hand only.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
