Question

Is a woman sinning if she shakes hands with a man when she is wearing gloves?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

It is not permissible for a woman to shake hands with a non-mahram man even if she is wearing gloves or she shakes hands from under a cloth or abayah. All of that counts as shaking hands even if there is some kind of barrier.
