KISSING HAND AND FEET OF PIOUS:
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim
Reference Imam Bukhari’s Book of Islamic Morals and Manners (Adab Al Mufrad)
A Warning about those who accuse Muslims shirk (Polytheism) for “Kissing hands and feet”.
Also, some misguided sects make out that Muslims making prostration to Pious Scholars, when the intention is to kiss their feet for “RESPECT” NOT FOR “Worship”!
Wazi Ibn Amir said: “We approached [Madinah] and we we were told: “This is the Messenger of Allah, upon him be peace, we took his arms and legs and kissed him all over”. (Imam Bukhari’s Adab Al Mufrad 978)
(This Hadith is also related by Abu Dawud)
Suhayb said: “I saw Ali kissing had and feel of Al Abbas” (Adab Al Mufrad 979)
This are the views of the true “Ahlul Hadith” and true salaf salih , so it is time to forsake false salafis and false ahlul hadith!
Islam is to have good manners with ahlul bayth, elders and the pious scholars. So those who have not learned good manners and respect to the elders, their way is astray!
