  • anon@:04 - it just tells me he didn't want to shake hands with your father. DYK most foreign countries don't shake hands, no matter their religion. If you think about it, shaking hands is gross!

    that one muslim man does not represent every muslim on earth. that gesture was a reflection of his personal convictions, not of all muslims. how ignorant, to make a judgement of all people based on one person.

  • Anon: It shows he was either grossed out by your dad personally (maybe he saw your dad scratching his buttor something, who knows?) or he was mis-guided.
    Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) said: we should treat everyone human with love and respect so there can be peace between them and us(MUSLIMS)

    If it was the wife he tried to shake hands with, not the husband (maybe your dad got it confused) Muslim women don't shake hands or have any physical contact with men who are not Mahram (family, husband)
