Assalamu Alaikum WRWB,
Mr. X (male) is a friend of mine and is a very good dayee, al hamdulillah. He is also a good journalist, good speaker and good writer. He has given hundreds of quran classes and speeches in various small/big gatherings. He has translated several islamic books from urdu to other languages. Al hamdulillah he is a good muslim.
Whenever the dawah programs are arranged for westeners, both gents and ladies from western community attend these programs. Sometimes after the programs, ladies from the western communities wish to shake hand with this brother appreciating his presentation, speeches etc. Now for example the situation comes that these ladies almost streched their hands forward to shakehand with Mr. X the dayee, what the brother has to do? Whether he can shake hands with them or is there any ideas that through which this brother (dayee) can avoid handshaking with the opposite sex i.e. western community ladies?
Your feedback on the above point is best appreciated.
May Allah guide us in the right path.
