What is the sunna way to shake hands?

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Amjad Rasheed

What is the sunna way to shake hands?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

The sunna way is to put your right hand in the right hand of the person that you meet. And it has come that the Prophet, Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, didn’t withdraw his hand until the other one did first.

Amjad Rasheed

[Translated by Sr. Shazia Ahmad]

السؤال : ما أحسنُ طريقة للمصافحة المسنونة ؟ الجواب : المصافحةُ المسنونة هي وضع يدك اليمنى باليد اليمنى لمن تقابله ، وورد أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم كان لا ينـزع يده ممن صافحه حتى ينـزع صاحبُه يده .
