Saying Jumuah Mubaruk

Q: Please can you advise on saying 'Jumuah Mubaruk' - is there any benefit in this especially as it has become a norm on social media?

A: Respected Brother/Sister in Islam

As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

Haamidaw wa Musalliyaa

Your query below refers;

Saying “Jumuah Mubarak” is not a Sunnah practice and is not found from among the noble practices of the our pious scholars of the past.

However, greeting someone with the words “Jumuah Mubarak” on a Friday is permissible considering that it is a form of dua for one to be blessed on the day of Jumuah. The condition is this practice should not be regarded as a Sunnah nor something that is compulsory on a Friday. Also, it should not be such that this greeting replaces the Sunnah greeting of salaam that has been prescribed in the Quran and Hadith.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Was Salaam
