    As a Muslim, how can i refuse to shake hand with a man without feeling him insulted? what to say in this situation?

    Dear Dilshad,

    Thank you for your comment! It could be a tricky situation, but if you behave in a friendly manner, most people would understand. When someone offers you a handshake we would suggest to smile and slightly bow, or nod your head a little, and say something similar to: “Please accept my apologies, I am not allowed to shake hands with men, but it is very nice to meet you!”

    Hope it helps! Please let us know if you have other questions!
