1.)Now we shall know, how gravious is “touching two non maharams”
It was narrated that Ma’qil ibn Yassaar said: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “For one of you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle is better for him than that he should touch a woman who is not permissible for him.”
Narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Kabeer, 486. Shaykh al-Albaani said in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 5045, that this hadeeth is saheeh.
2.) Prophet (peace be upon him) has ever been guidance and best conduct to us
Surah Al-Ahzab(33), Verse 21:::Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad SAW) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much.(English – Mohsin Khan)
Surah Al-Qalam(68), Verse 4:::And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted standard of character.(English – Mohsin Khan)
(a) He (peace be upon him) never touched non maharam companions of his even tough they themselves wanted to shake hands with him
Muhammad bin Munkadir said that he heard Umaimah bint Ruqaiqah say:
“I came to the Prophet (ﷺ) with some other women, to offer our pledge to him. He said to us: “(I accept your pledge) with regard to what you are able to do. But I do not shake hands with women.'”
Sunan Ibn Majah : Vol. 4, Book 24, Hadith 2874
(b)It was narrated from ‘Urwah that ‘Aa’ishah told him about the women’s oath of allegiance: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) never touched any woman with his hand. He would explain to the woman what the oath of allegiance implied, and when she accepted, he would say ‘Go, for you have given your oath of allegiance.’” Narrated by Muslim, 1866
