It is not permissible for a seller to touch the hand of a woman who is buying from him
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
There is a religiously-committed businessman who has a lot of customers, many of whom are women. When giving and taking his hand sometimes touches theirs, and that happens often. What should he do?.

Praise be to Allaah.
It is not permissible for a man to touch the hand of a woman who is not permissible for him, because of the fitnah (temptation) involved in that. You have to avoid this and repent to Allaah from that. You can buy and sell with woman by words only. You have to fear Allaah and avoid that which leads to fitnah.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
