Part Of The Hand To Use For Masah Of The Neck

Question

Is Masah of the neck with the back of the fingers or the back part of the hand?

Answer

 In the books of Jurisprudence it is written with the back of the hands. The back of the hand entails the back of the fingers as well as the back of the palm. Therefore, by using the back of the fingers one will be using the back of the hand as mentioned in the books of jurisprudence.
