Shaking Hands After Prayer


What is the ruling of shaking hands after offering congregational prayer?


Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “If one of you meets his brother, then he should greet him with Salam.” (Abu Dawud)

In this hadith, the Prophet (peace be upon him) has commanded the Muslims, when any of them encounters his Muslim brother to greet him with Salam. It is an expression of love between the two who shake hands, as it dispels hatred, rancor and grudges among the Muslims.

What about shaking hands after offering prayer? Is it sunnah to shake hands after every prayer? Is it something related to the prayer?
