Kissing hand is kiss the outer palm when be shaking, for the most of muslims have become a culture, as well as among students. Basically, kissing hand is one form of respects from the younger to the older, from those who feel the layperson to the person deemed to pious, from the children to the parents, from the students to the teachers or kiai, this is the culture that happening in Indonesia which is derived from Islam.
Respect for teacher or kiai is purely because you want to do tabarruk or expect the blessing of knowledge, should not be due to other factors. Respecting a person for wealth or rank is a form of action that is forbidden by Islam.
A blessing is a condition of the result we get where we feel peaceful, comfortable and satisfied in life. Blessing words sounded so familiar and sacred among students, because they willingly queued even lining up to acquire the blessing as in the former drinking kiai, kissing kiai's hand, submissive and ta'z}i>m when ruled by kiai.
There are still many people who mistakenly understand the word of ta'z}i>m (reverence) and the word worship. This mistake results in a confusion between the both of words. So it can conclude that glorification (submission) means worship. On the basis of this misconception, they argue that being solemn and inferior in front of the tomb of the Messenger of Allah, the tomb of the righteous, kissing the hands of the righteous or the guardians, the rulers and the pious rich man, regarded as an exaggeration ( Ghuluw), which can drag people to offerings other than Allah swt (syirk).
In fact, all this is utterly meaningless worship. It does not even occur in the heart and mind to worship the pious or guardians, who kissed his hand, as worshiped God. All that is just ta'z}i>m or tabarruk (seeking blessing). Of course, tabarruk can only be done with a full belief that the means (object or room) used as tabarruk it can not bring benefit or harm without the permission of Allah SWT. Therefore, all benefits and harms are in the full power of Allah.
