Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Question

Is it Sunnah to do salaam with 1 hand or 2 hands?

Answer

It is sunnah to perform “musaafahah” with two hands. Imam Bukhari (R.A.) mentions the following Hadith under a chapter regarding “musaafahah” in his ‘Saheeh’.

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو نُعَيْمٍ، حَدَّثَنَا سَيْفٌ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ مُجَاهِدًا يَقُولُ: حَدَّثَنِي عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ سَخْبَرَةَ أَبُو مَعْمَرٍ قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ ابْنَ مَسْعُودٍ، يَقُولُ: عَلَّمَنِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، وَكَفِّي بَيْنَ كَفَّيْهِ

بَابُ الأَخْذِ بِاليَدَيْنِ
(Saheeh Bukhari, 59/8)
