Kissing One's Hands or Putting One's Hand on the Heart after Giving Salaams

I see some people after shaking hands, they kiss their hands or they put their hand on their chest to show more love, so is this permissible? Benefit us may Allah reward you with good.

This action has no origin from what we know in the legislation of Islaam, and it is not legislated to kiss the hand or put it on the chest after shaking hands, rather it is an innovation if he believes that he will get closer to Allah subhaana with it.
