Benefit regarding shaking hands while eating:

Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen rahimahullah said:

“…As for shaking hands when eating, then there is no one who wants to shake hands when eating! If a person enters and the people are eating nd he wants to shake their hands. He shakes the hands of each one, there is no one who does this…”

[Fatawa al-Haram al-Makki 1410 H no. 8 side B]

So it is best that people do not shake hands when eating, but just exchange Salam verbally.

And Allah Knows Best
