Father-in-law shaking hands with daughter-in-law

Q: Is it permissible for a father-in-law to shake hands with his son's wife when greeting each other? The father in law is 58 years old and the daughter in law is 20.

A: On account of abundant fitnah that is prevalent, the father in law should avoid shaking hands with the daughter in law.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
