Q: When Moulanas, etc. come to the masjid to perform Zikr, give talks etc., it is common practice for musallis to stand in a line and shake the hand of the Moulana, etc. Is this an established practice according to Sunnah?
A: This is not a sunnat method, but it is not impermissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
