Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum 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:

Can we embrace each other after eid namaz or else?

Embrace greetings hug Eid

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Sunan of Abu-Dawood 1665 Narrated by Buhaysah al-Fazariyyah

My father sought permission from the Prophet (saws) to enter. (When permission was granted and he came near the Prophet (saws)) he began to kiss the Prophet (saws) and embrace him (out of love for him).


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.32 Narrated by Usama bin Zaid

Allah's Messenger (saws) used to put me on (one of) his thighs and put Al-Hasan bin Ali (r.a.) on his other thigh, and then embrace us and say, "O Allah! Please be Merciful to them, as I am merciful to them."


To embrace someone is but an extension of one’s love for that person, and there is absolutely no harm if one wishes to embrace their beloved brethren out of love and honor, on the day of Eid or otherwise, if they wish to do so.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
