Teaching About the Right and Left Hands/Side in Islam


Ruling on Using Left Hand

Q: What is the ruling on taking and giving things with the left hand; is it Haram (prohibited) or Makruh (reprehensible)?
A: According to the authentic reports, giving and taking things with the left hand is prohibited.
It is reported on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
“Let one of you eat with his right hand, drink with his right hand, take with his right hand, and give with his right hand, for Satan eats with his left hand, drinks with his left hand, gives with his left hand, and takes with his left hand.” [1]
(Related by Ahmad and Ibn Majah, and this is his narration).
May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
