Imam Ibn ‘Adiy (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. However, the Muhaddithun have declared the Hadith a fabrication. The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Refer: Talkhisu Kitabil Mawdu’at of ‘Allamah Dhahabi, Hadith: 376 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 66)


Whoever shakes the hand of a Jew or Christian, then he should make wudu or wash his hands

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
