Question

As Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa
Barakatuhu
I know we can send Ramadan Mubarak
and Eid Mubarak greetings to each
other, can we send Jumu’ah Mubarak
greetings to families and friends since
Jumu'ah is a very special day.
I normally receive and send out sms for
Jumu'ah and was wondering if that is
okay.
Jazakallahu Khairan
May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala reward
you for your efforts Ameen!
Wa Alaikum Salam wa Rahmatullahi wa
Barakatuhu

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His Slave
and Messenger.

We are not aware of any evidence
reported from the Prophet or his
companions, may Allah be pleased with
them, that it is a Sunnah for Muslims to
regularly exchange "Jumu‘ah Mubaarak"
greetings, nor do we know of any
scholars that made it permissible.

Taking that into consideration, to do so
regularly is a religious innovation,
especially if it is done as an act of
worship, and believing that it is a
Sunnah. It is proven that the Messenger
of Allah said: "Whoever does an act
that does not comply with our matter
(religion), will have it
rejected." [Muslim] In another wording:
"Whoever introduces into this matter of
ours (Islam) that which is not part of it,
it will be rejected." [Al-Bukhari and
Muslim]

However, if a Muslim says that to his
Muslim brother from time to time,
without thinking it to be an established
Sunnah or binding, and without doing it
on a regular basis, but just by way of
supplication, then we hope that it is
permissible; although leaving it is
preferable so that it does not become
like the established Sunnah.

Allah Knows best.
