A narration in Sahīh al-Bukhārī states that Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam did Musāfahah with Abdullāh bin Mas’ūd Radhiyallāhu Anhu using both his hands. The narration is as follows:

وكَفِّي بَيْنَ كَفَّيْهِ (صحيح البخارى، بَابُ المُصَافَحَةِ)

Ibn Mas’ūd Radhiyallāh Anhu states, “My hand was between the two hands of Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam.” (Sahīh al-Bukhārī)

Furthermore, Imām Bukhārī Rahimahullāh states that Hammād bin Zaid, a great Faqīh (Jurist) did Musāfahah with Abdullāh bin Mubārak Rahimahullāh with two hands.[1]

Although it is better that one does Musāfahah with both hands, it is also permissible to do Musāfahah with only the right hand.[2]
