أَنَّ يَهُودِيَّيْنِ قَالَ أَحَدُهُمَا لِصَاحِبِهِ اذْهَبْ بِنَا إِلَى هَذَا النَّبِيِّ نَسْأَلُهُ فَقَالَ لَا تَقُلْ نَبِيٌّ فَإِنَّهُ إِنْ سَمِعَهَا تَقُولُ نَبِيٌّ كَانَتْ لَهُ أَرْبَعَةُ أَعْيُنٍ فَأَتَيَا النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَسَأَلَاهُ عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ{ وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا مُوسَى تِسْعَ آيَاتٍ بَيِّنَاتٍ }فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَا تُشْرِكُوا بِاللَّهِ شَيْئًا وَلَا تَزْنُوا وَلَا تَقْتُلُوا النَّفْسَ الَّتِي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ وَلَا تَسْرِقُوا وَلَا تَسْحَرُوا وَلَا تَمْشُوا بِبَرِيءٍ إِلَى سُلْطَانٍ فَيَقْتُلَهُ وَلَا تَأْكُلُوا الرِّبَا وَلَا تَقْذِفُوا مُحْصَنَةً وَلَا تَفِرُّوا مِنْ الزَّحْفِ شَكَّ شُعْبَةُ وَعَلَيْكُمْ يَا مَعْشَرَ الْيَهُودِ خَاصَّةً لَا تَعْدُوا فِي السَّبْتِ فَقَبَّلَا يَدَيْهِ وَرِجْلَيْهِ وَقَالَا نَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ نَبِيٌّ قَالَ فَمَا يَمْنَعُكُمَا أَنْ تُسْلِمَا قَالَا إِنَّ دَاوُدَ دَعَا اللَّهَ أَنْ لَا يَزَالَ فِي ذُرِّيَّتِهِ نَبِيٌّ وَإِنَّا نَخَافُ إِنْ أَسْلَمْنَا أَنْ تَقْتُلَنَا الْيَهُودُ

Sayyidina Safwan ibn Assal al-Muradi reported that of two Jews one said to the other, “Come let us go to this Prophet that we may question him.” The other said, “Do not call him a Prophet, for, if he hears you say Prophet he will be overjoyed.’ So they came to him and asked him about the words of Allah the Exalted: "And certainly we gave Musa nine manifest signs." (17:101).Shu’bah was unsure if this was included: And particularly for you, O Jews, that you do not contravene (the injunctions on) the Sabbath (Saturday). So, they kissed his hand and his feet, saying, “We bear testimony that you are a Prophet. He asked. ‘Then what prevents you from submitting (in Islam)?” They said, ‘Dawood had prayed that Prophets should not cease to come in his offspring and we fear that if we submit the Jews will kill us.’

Kissing Feet and Prostration
Answered by Shaykh Gibril F Haddad
http://spa.qibla.com/issue_view.asp?HD= ... 62&CATE=94


Question:
I wish to inquire about a ruling regarding kissing the feet of elders [and] prostration out of respecting a human being (sujud al-ta`dhim).... If the kissing or touching was practised in the posture of prostration, [is this] unlawful (haram) and one of the major sins?
Answer:

Prostration to other than Allah with the intention of worship is disbelief; with the intention of respect, prohibited (haram).

Kissing a parent's or teacher's foot with the intention of respect is neither even if it seems to resemble it outwardly.

These are separate issues and should not be confused.

The hadiths in which the Companions kissed the foot or feet of the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, are known. Imam Muslim asked for permission to kiss the foot of Imam al-Bukhari. It is difficult to imagine anyone kissing another's foot other than in a posture seeming to resemble prostration to some, and it would be an outlandish suggestion that imitating the Companions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) and the great early Muslims could be among the major sins.

So if it is permissible - and it is permissible � then it is permissible unconditionally, not only if it does not resemble prostration.

It is the same with those that forbid bowing to someone and therefore kissing the hand because it involves bowing (because it is impermissible to bow to another). It is poor reasoning.

As Imam Habib Mashhur al-Haddad said in Key to the Garden as translated by Sidi Mostafa Badawi: Friend, you will bow to pass through the low door of this mosque then again to pick up your children or kiss them - and there is nothing wrong with it. Or something to that effect.

As for difference of sex then the same ruling that applies to touch applies here regardless of kissing or prostrating.

There remains two remarks:

1. If a certain culture over-emphasizes a gesture of adab and tends to make it an obligation, new rulings may apply. If the obligation is a social custom with no religious connotation it is a mere innovation.

Examples are the expectation of an elderly Turkish woman that a greeting male kiss her hand, even a non-mahram, or the expectation among certain Gulf Arabs that a proper greeting between males involves kissing cheeks/lips and rubbing noses.

If the obligation acquires a religious connotation it is an innovation of misguidance which must be avoided.

2. Whether contemporary people kiss hands and feet out of unthinking imitation or have anything like the Companions' high sense of dignity on the one hand and their pure, forthright, selfless, and trusting hearts on the other, is another matter.

I ask forgiveness if I said anything wrong and beg to be corrected by those Allah will reward. Allah knows best.

Was-Salam
Hajj Gibril
